How well do you know Olivia Newton-John? The late singer — who was best known for her classic role as Sandy in the 1978 film Grease — was also a loving wife and mother. She was survived by her husband, John Easterling, and daughter Chloe Rose Lattanzi after her death in August 2022
Olivia and her ex-husband, Matt Lattanzi, welcomed one child while together, daughter Chloe, during their 11-year marriage. But after the couple divorced in 1995, the longtime Hollywood icon went on to marry her husband, John, in 2008.
“I’m very lucky I have a wonderful, beautiful husband who is just so loving and fantastic. I always tell my friends you’re never too old to find love … I’m grateful,” Olivia previously gushed to People in October 2016.
Olivia considered her and her husband “thick as thieves” and wouldn’t want to have it any other way. However, despite having a close relationship, the “Physical” singer confessed her man never watched Grease until her former costar John Travolta showed it to him in 2018.
“John invited us for dinner at his house and he has a house with a runway as you do, that was always his dream,” Olivia previously explained on The Project in September 2018 of how the night began. “So my John was telling JT he never saw the movie, so John invited us on his plane which he recently had refurbished and my husband’s a pilot and he loves planes.”
She continued, “He had Grease playing on the television screen so he got to watch it on a plane with me and John.” So cool!
During their long marriage, Olivia and John had gone through a lot of ups and downs. When she battled breast cancer for the third time in August 2019, the songstress remembered her hubby having her back, even on those days when she felt like giving up. “Of course, I had my moments, and my tears and all that, but I have a wonderful husband who supports me through those things,” she once told People in March 2019. “I’m feeling good, just getting stronger.”
Unfortunately, Olivia died on August 8, 2022. Her death was announced by her family in a statement on her Facebook account.
“Dame Olivia Newton-John (73) passed away peacefully at her Ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends. We ask that everyone please respect the family’s privacy during this very difficult time,” her husband shared. “Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made in her memory to the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund (ONJFoundationFund.org).”
