Olivia Newton-John’s daughter Chloe Lattanzi broke down in tears while discussing her late mother’s legacy on live TV this weekend.
On Sunday, Olivia’s supporters took to the streets of Melbourne for the late Grease star’s annual Walk for Wellness cancer fundraising event.
Lattanzi, 36, who was unable to attend the walk, became visibly emotional as she spoke to Nine’s Richard Wilkins via video link from her home in Santa Barbara.
‘It’s so beautiful to see how many people have come out in support of my mum,’ a visibly emotional Lattanzi said.
‘John [Easterling] and I are there in spirit. But we just needed to take some time to grieve,’ she explained.
Chloe said the center was important for her mother giving her life a great sense of purpose.
‘This was her heart. This was what she lived for. She saw the benefits of holistic treatments and acupuncture and music therapy,’ Lattanzi said.
She later apologized for becoming emotional during the interview.
‘She is an angel. She was absolutely magical. All she wanted to do was good in the world,’ she added.
Olivia was diagnosed with cancer three times in 1992, 2013 and, for a final time, in 2017.
Newton-John died in August after a brave and public decades-long battle with the illness.
Chloe made headlines last month when she revealed she had married her fiancé James Driscoll ‘years ago’ in a secret ceremony officiated by her late mother.
