Olivia Newton-John 'weeks' from dying of cancer - reports

UPDATE: Olivia Newton-John's niece Neice Tottie Goldsmith shuts down talk her auntie is dying

Newshub's earlier report is below.


Iconic singer and actress Olivia Newton-John reportedly only has weeks left to live after suffering her third bout of cancer.

The 70-year-old Grease star previously confirmed she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017, with another tumour in her spine.

According to media site RadarOnline, she's rapidly become sicker and her bodily functions are shutting down.

She reportedly wants to make it to her daughter Chloe's wedding, which has been brought forward.

Sources close to the star told the site she has "weeks not months" left.

Her US-based manager Michael Caprio has denied the reports telling News.com.au they were "hilarious", adding: "You might want to get better sources than reading tabloids."

Randy Slovacek, her social media manager, told The Herald Sun: "We have stated over and over again publicly she's feeling better. People just seem to want to believe some dramatic turn."

Newton-John is best known for her role as Sandy in Grease, but had a long career as a singer and an actress, winning four Grammys and selling more than 100 million records worldwide.

She is married to John Easterling and the couple live on a ranch in California, where her daughter will reportedly get married.

Last year she appeared on the US TV show Sunrise, where she said she was doing really well and wasn't treating her cancer as a "battle". 

"I like to say 'win over' because battle sets up this inflammation and anger that you don't want, so I'm going to win over it again," she told the show.

Ms Newton-John was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992 and underwent a partial mastectomy and chemotherapy.

The cancer returned in 2013, the same year her sister Rona died of a brain tumour. She went into remission until last year.

She has been a campaigner for the use of medical marijuana and reportedly uses home grown cannabis as pain relief.

“My husband's a plant medicine man so he grew cannabis for me and made tinctures for me to take for pain and inflammation and so many other things that cannabis can do,” she told 60 Minutes.

'It's been a maligned plant all these years and it really is a magical miracle plant.”

In May Ms Newton-John postponed her North American tour after back pain she was suffering was diagnosed as breast cancer.
