Olivia Newton-John’s daughter Chloe Lattanzi moved in with her mother before her death

Olivia Newton-John’s daughter Chloe Lattanzi moved in with her mother just two weeks before her tragic death on Monday.

The Grease star passed away at age 73 following a lengthy battle with breast cancer, spending her final moments surrounded by friends and family at her home in Southern California.

Until late last month, Chloe and her fiancé James Driskill were living in Portland, Oregon, where they owned a medical cannabis farm.

However on July 25, Chloe excitedly announced on Facebook that the couple were relocating California to be closer to her sickly mother.

‘We officially moved out of our house in Portland. In the truck my man towing the U-Haul [hire trailer],’ the 36-year-old wrote next to a pouty selfie.

‘So excited to get back to my mama! Here’s to a new chapter!!!’ added Chloe, who is Olivia’s only child.

Chloe and martial arts expert James opened their cannabis farm back in December 2016, leaving behind their glitzy LA lifestyle for a more laid-back existence in Oregon – where recreational marijuana had become legal.

Chloe had temporarily moved in with her mother during the pandemic just last year – something for which Olivia said she is forever grateful.

‘This has been a dream time, to be able to spend a long time with Chloe. It’s a special time,’ the Xanadu actress told Studio 10 during a recent interview.

Olivia welcomed Chloe with her former husband Matt Lattanzi in 1986.

Chloe began her relationship with James in 2009, and the pair announced their engagement just one year later.

‘I’ll take care of our weasel,’ he concluded, referring to Chloe.

Olivia, who has been diagnosed with cancer in 2017 and twice before in 1992 and 2013, spent years lobbying the Australian government to approve the use of medicinal cannabis for cancer patients.

Like James and Chloe, Olivia’s husband John Easterling grew medicinal cannabis for his wife on their ranch in the US to ‘help with her symptoms’.

Back in 2020, Olivia recalled the terrifying moment she was first diagnosed with the disease.

Speaking about her diagnosis, she added: ‘I knew immediately something was wrong.

‘I had a mammogram. The mammogram was benign and I had a needle biopsy that was also benign… I don’t say this to scare women, but you have to just trust your instincts.’

Olivia explained that she then spoke to her doctor and agreed to get a biopsy, and was then diagnosed with surgical breast cancer.

‘All this was overwhelming. It was a feeling of dread, terror, the unknown, ‘she said, adding that she decided to be strong for her daughter Chloe Lattanzi.

Olivia has tried a variety of therapies, including meditation, acupuncture, massage and plant medicine, to heal her body – in addition to conventional medicine.

‘I have seen the incredible beauty of the plants and their healing abilities… if I hadn’t had that experience, I wouldn’t be sitting here talking to you about kinder therapies… your body wants to heal itself,’ said the medical cannabis advocate.

‘That’s why I’m excited to start this foundation.’
