She didn’t find the love of her life until she was 59

Star and beau Olivia Newton-John hasn’t had it easy despite her fame and success. On top of a long battle with an illness that she never had peace from, whether she came back or not, she didn’t even have the chance to live her life alongside a loved one.

Not much is known about her very first relationships since her youth, the actress kept this to herself, but the truth is that already in 1968 she was engaged to music producer Bruce Welch, who co-wrote her single Please Mr. Please from 1975. However, they called off the engagement before it was released. In 1973, she met British businessman Lee Kramer on the French Riviera, who would later become her manager, but their relationship ended after six years.

Only then did she find her first husband. While filming the 1980 musical fantasy film Xanadu, Olivia met dancer and actor Matt Lattanzi. They married in December 1984 and have one child together, Olivia, daughter Chloe Lattanzi. Nine years later, the couple amicably divorced and the two have remained friends.

A cruel misfortune and a wound that never healed

Few people may know this, but remember that Olivia has a wound that never healed. A year after the divorce, cameraman Patrick McDermott became her love. They had been together for 9 years when, in 2005, McDermott mysteriously disappeared on a fishing trip off the coast of California while Olivia was in Australia. He was never found, the accident was not explained, and what hurt Newton-John the most was the uncertainty as to whether his former love was dead or alive. However, a few years later, reports began circulating that McDermott had staged his own death amid financial troubles to free himself from high child support payments.

Olivia herself described the period as “traumatic” and at this time it is still uncertain whether McDermott is alive, although some say he should have been spotted in Mexico and South America. Her photos, as well as photos of Olivia’s first love, can be found in the photo gallery:

He remained her husband until today and supported her until her last moments. John Easterling, three years his junior (70 years old). She met him when she was interested in natural treatments for her disease. Stretlisa was at an environmental exhibition, where he exhibited his herbs, and Olivia came with her friends.

Aid and awareness in which she has been involved

On the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Center website, she explained how she was first diagnosed with breast cancer.

“The diagnosis came the very weekend my father died of cancer, so you can imagine the shock. I had a partial mastectomy, chemotherapy and breast reconstruction. I was on herbal remedies , pondered and focused on the vision of a full recovery.” Shaken by this experience, Olivia’s outlook on life changed and she became more interested in natural remedies as well as environmentalism.
