Olivia Newton-John posted photo with husband John Easterling 3 days before death
Olivia Newton-John shared a sweet photo of herself and husband John Easterling via Instagram just three days before her death .
The throwback snap featuring Easterling, 70, holding a smiling Newton-John was simply captioned, “#flashbackfriday ❤️.”
Fans swooned over the pair in the comments section of the post, with one writing, “The most beautiful and sweetest couple 💕.”
“Love in a photograph ❤️❤️❤️,” another added.
Meanwhile, others expressed their concern for the “Grease” star, with one supporter eerily commenting, “I’m not the only one wondering if you’re really okay. The silence is deafning [sic] and to be honest sometimes scary. But the utmost respect for that. Love & light always.”
A second fan wrote, “🌷🍃I’ve been tossing in my sleep worrying about you. 🙏🏼🍃I’m keeping you in my daily prayers.”
Three days later, Newton-John tragically lost her battle with breast cancer at the age of 73.
”Dame Olivia Newton-John (73) passed away peacefully at her Ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends. We ask that everyone please respect the family’s privacy during this very difficult time,” read a statement posted to her Facebook page.
“Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made in her memory to the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund ( ONJFoundationFund.org ).”
In addition to Easterling, Newton-John is survived by daughter Chloe Lattanzi, sister Sarah Newton-John, brother Toby Newton-John and several other family members.
Easterling was Newton-John’s second husband, whom she married in 2008. She was married to her first husband, Matt Lattanzi, from 1984 to 1995.
