New Zealand Woman’s Weekly - - ROYAL UPDATE -

Beloved Grease star Olivia New­ton-John (70) has taken to Face­book to re­fute claims she only has weeks to live. The Aus­tralian singer, who is bat­tling can­cer for the third time, ad­dressed the re­ports in a video: “I just want to say that the ru­mours of my death have been greatly ex­ag­ger­ated.

“I am do­ing great! I wish you all the hap­pi­est and health­i­est 2019 that is pos­si­ble. Thank you all for your in­cred­i­ble love and sup­port.”

Olivia’s niece also came to her de­fence. Tot­tie Gold­smith (56) said that Olivia was in “re­ally good shape”, adding, “You can rest as­sured she is go­ing nowhere.”

The star is cur­rently be­ing treated with ra­di­a­tion ther­apy and nat­u­ral ther­a­pies. In an in­ter­view in Septem­ber 2018, she said, “I’d be ly­ing if I said I never [get scared]. There are mo­ments, I’m hu­man. If I al­lowed my­self to go there, I could eas­ily cre­ate that big fear. But my hus­band’s al­ways there, and he’s there to sup­port me. I believe I will win over it. That’s my goal.”

Oh yes in­deed, Olivia’s alive and well. The singer(left with Dr Véronique De­saulniers) re­futed claims in a video (above left) thatshe wasn’t do­ing well.
