Olivia Newton-John, age 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.
Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer. 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 @onjfoundation
Olivia is survived by her husband John Easterling; daughter Chloe Lattanzi; sister Sarah Newton-John; brother Toby Newton-John; nieces and nephews Tottie, Fiona and Brett Goldsmith; Emerson, Charlie, Zac, Jeremy, Randall, and Pierz Newton-John; Jude Newton-Stock, Layla Lee; Kira and Tasha Edelstein; and Brin and Valerie Hall.
Olivia Newton John was born in England and raised in Melbourne, Australia. Her grandfather, Max Born, was a German physicist and mathematician who was instrumental in the development of quantum mechanics.
Olivia Newton-John was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992. She announced in May 2017 that after 25 years with her cancer in remission, the cancer had spread to her lower back.
“A place where nobody dared to go… The love that we came to know… They call it Xanadu!” Watch Olivia Newton-John perform E.L.O.’s “Xanadu” along with Gene Kelly in the eponymous 1980 cult classic. We know the title of this video is confusing but we couldn’t fit in the fact that while Gene Kelly’s character owns and operates the ’80s/’40s hybrid roller disco, Olivia Newton-John’s character is the daughter of Zeus and a *literal* Greek muse. And we just really needed you to know that. YouTube Tips ⓘ
