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 died at 73 following a long 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 lived in Portland, Oregon, where they owned a medical cannabis farm.

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

“We have officially left our home in Portland. In the truck my man towing the U-Haul [hire trailer]’, the 36-year-old wrote alongside a sulky selfie.

‘So excited to find my mom! Here comes a new chapter!!!’ added Chloe, who is Olivia’s only child.

Chloe and martial arts expert James opened their cannabis farm 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 last year – something that Olivia said she was eternally grateful for.

‘It was a dream moment, being able to spend a long time with Chloe. It’s a special moment,’ the Xanadu actress told Studio 10 during a recent interview.

It was reported at the time that Olivia had taken out a ‘loan’ for the couple to ‘get a fresh start’ by opening their farm.

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

Chloe began her relationship with James in 2009, and the couple announced their engagement a year later.

James also shared a raw tribute to his late mother-in-law following her passing, uploading an Instagram photo of himself and Chloe posing arm-in-arm with Olivia.

“I am so lucky and grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from such an amazing woman. You have led an amazing life and touched so many people,” he began his moving caption.

“You taught me grace and gratitude, love and light. You have always been so generous and kind and I am filled with joy at the thought of spending the rest of my life with your beautiful daughter who loves me. “I also learn daily to be a more compassionate and forgiving man.

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

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

Like James and Chloe, Olivia’s husband, John Easterling, grew medicinal cannabis for his wife on their ranch in the United States to “help relieve her symptoms.”

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

In 2020, Olivia recalled the terrifying moment she was first diagnosed with the disease. “It was all overwhelming. It was a feeling of dread, terror, of the unknown,” she said, adding that she had decided to be strong for her daughter, Chloe Lattanzi.

“I had a mammogram. The mammogram was benign and I had a needle biopsy which was also benign…I’m not saying this to scare women, but you just have to trust your instincts.

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

“It was all overwhelming. It was a feeling of fear, of terror, of the unknown,” she said, adding that she had decided to be strong for her daughter, Chloé Lattanzi.

“I made the decision that I would be fine. I had to believe that everything would be fine, that my daughter was the most important thing in my life and that I would be fine for her,” she said.

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

“I’ve seen the incredible beauty of plants and their healing abilities…if I hadn’t had this experience, I wouldn’t be sitting here telling you about gentler therapies…your body wants to heal itself,” said the defender of medicinal cannabis.

“That’s why I’m excited to launch this foundation.”
