Olivia Newton-John: 'I'm Doing Great'

Olivia Newton-John
Olivia Newton-John is reassuring fans that she is "doing great" following reports that the singer and actress was on her deathbed.

Various media outlets, including RadarOnline and Australia's Now To Love, claimed the 70-year-old Australian is "clinging to life" and has "weeks" to live, following her third bout with cancer. Reports added that the "Grease" star is spending her final days with husband John Easterling and daughter Chloe Rose Lattanzi, in hopes of seeing her only child wed.

However, Newton-John took to Twitter Wednesday to speak for herself. Quoting Mark Twain, a playful Newton-John laughed off speculation that she was on her deathbed.

"Happy New Year, everyone!" she exclaimed in the video. "I just want to say the rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated, to quote a very famous quote, and I’m doing great and I want to wish all of you the happiest, healthiest 2019 that’s possible."

She continued: "Thank you all for the wonderful love and support for me and for my Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Australia."

Newton-John's publicist, Michael Caprio, doubled down, telling USAToday that "the reports are quite ridiculous – but what do you expect when the source is the Enquirer and Radar."
