Upset, it was her husband, John Easterling, who announced the terrible news on Facebook: “Olivia Newton John [73 ans] passed away peacefully this morning at her ranch in Southern California, surrounded by family and friends. We ask everyone to respect the privacy of the family during this very difficult time.“After indicating that his wife had been”a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years, sharing her journey with breast cancer“, the star’s widower said that instead of flowers, Olivier Newton-John’s family asked that any donation be made in his memory to the foundation bearing his name.

For Peopleshe said:I didn’t expect to live this long, I feel blessed. Despite the illness, I feel good.“Refusing to know how long he has left to live, the star added:”If you believe in statistics, they will come true. If you’re told you have six months to live, that’s very likely to happen, because you’re going to believe it. So, for me, psychologically, it’s better not to know the diagnosis or knowing that someone who has the same thing as you has survived.“
