Olivia Newton-John's Last Social Media Post Will Leave You Heartbroken

Olivia Newton-John, the powerhouse star of films like "Grease" and "Xanadu" tragically died at the age of 73 in her Southern California ranch home, TMZ reports. The singer behind hits like "Physical" and "You're the One that I Want" was diagnosed with cancer in the 1980s and, though she was in and out of remission over the 30 years she had the illness, it appears her cause of death was related to cancer.

The representative that confirmed her death did not state a cause, though a close source to the family told TMZ, "After a 30-year cancer journey, she lost her battle to metastatic breast cancer."

Her husband released an official statement regarding her death that read, "Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer. Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continue with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer." 

Fans are heartbroken over the legendary actress' passing. Taking a look at her last social media post has her supporters feeling all of the feels.

Newton-John's final post on Instagram will hit you in the feels

Some fans may have found out the heartbreaking news of Olivia Newton-John's death from her Instagram account. Her husband, John Easterling, made the official announcement from her account, writing a heartbreaking statement paired with a gorgeous photo of the late actress. The caption of the photo both detailed the tragic passing of his wife, and included the list of surviving family members. It's a heartbreaking read for any fan of the singer and actress.

However, looking back at her final post before her death is even more heart-wrenching. Just two days ago, Newton-John posted a beautiful photo of herself posing alongside Easterling with the caption, "#flashbackfriday." The photo was flooded with comments regarding how beautiful the pair were and wishing Newton-John well.

Newton-John and Easterling started dating in 2006 and tied the knot in 2008. He helped the actress mourn her former partner, Patrick McDermott, who went missing at sea and was assumed dead (via InTouch Weekly).

Of her beloved husband, Newton-John gushed to People in 2016, "I'm very lucky I have a wonderful, beautiful husband who is just so loving and fantastic." She added, "I always tell my friends you're never too old to find love. I found the love of my life at 59 going on 60! I'm grateful." 

The Grease star appeared on her daughter's social media days before her death

Equally devastatingly, Olivia Newton-John's beloved daughter, Chloe Lattanzi, posted a shot of the two of them to Instagram just a few days before the "Grease" star passed away. "I worship this woman. My mother. My best friend," Lattanzi wrote alongside a photo of her mom smiling widely in a white blouse and flowing skirt. To mark her passing, Lattanzi shared a slideshow of photos of the two of them together, the first of which, a black-and-white shot, showed her as a toddler giving her mom a sweet kiss.

Another features Newton-John holding a young Lattanzi during a day out at the beach, while the rest are more modern selfies interspersed with behind-the-scenes photos of the duo conducting an interview together. Lattanzi followed in Newton-John's footsteps as a singer and performer, with the mother-daughter duo even teaming up on the duet "Window in the Wall," in 2021. "The only person I thought of was Chloe to sing it with me, because it was such a personal song," Newton-John told Entertainment Tonight

Lattanzi, meanwhile, gushed, "I was honored that out of all the people my mom could have asked, she asked me." She added, "That meant the world to me." 

John Travolta also posted a sweet tribute to his beloved former co-star

Elsewhere, John Travolta, the Danny to Olivia Newton-John's Sandy, posted a devastating tribute to his beloved "Grease" co-star and frequent musical collaborator. Newton-John and Travolta shared an enduring friendship decades after they broke out as star-crossed lovers in the hit musical, and he was understandably heartbroken to learn she'd died. Alongside a stunning shot of Newton-John from back in the day, Travolta wrote on Instagram, "My dearest Olivia, you made all of our lives so much better." 

He continued, "Your impact was incredible. I love you so much. We will see you down the road and we will all be together again." The "Saturday Night Fever" star signed his post, "Yours from the first moment I saw you and forever! Your Danny, your John!" Per Decider, the former co-stars reunited onscreen in 1983's "Two of a Kind" before releasing a Christmas album together in 2012, as noted by NBC News. In 2019, they appeared as Danny and Sanny again for the "Meet 'n' Grease" singalong event in Florida.
