One week after her mother, Olivia Newton-John passed away at the age of 73, the Grease star’s daughter Chloe Lattanzi took to her Instagram account to speak out about grief.  

In the social media post, Olivia Newton-John posted a quote by Jamie Anderson. “Grief, I’ve learned is really just love,” the quote reads. “It’s all the love you want to give, but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hallow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go.”

Olivia Newton-John’s daughter also shared a sweet post that featured videos of her mother through the years. “Thank you [Olivia Newton-John Videos] for these beautiful moments you put together. Thank you for your love. My mama and I would always look at your page together. You brought back so many wonderful memories for her. Sending you oceans of love.”

However, the Grease star had been battling cancer on and off for decades. During her nearly six decades of stardom, Newton-John won four Grammy awards, five number one hits, and ten Top 10 hits. 

In a statement, Newton-John’s husband, John Easterling, shared, “Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hopes for over 30 years, sharing her journey with breast cancer. Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer.”
