In a candid interview with Karl Stefanovic on 60 Minutes, Olivia Newton-John has opened up about her daughter Chloe Lattanzi’s struggle with eating disorders and addiction.


Chloe was admitted to a treatment facility for anorexia when she was just 18, and later developed a cocaine and alcohol addiction.

Last year Chloe, 30, opened up to Daily Mail Australia about her past, admitting that her anorexia was ‘terrible’ and that it ‘was awful having people taking pictures of you, writing about you, when you’re sick’.

The star is now fully recovered, largely thanks to the support of her fiancé James Driskill, whom she met in 2009. However, Olivia, 68, has confessed that she does feel somewhat guilty for Chloe’s past.

‘It must be hard to be the child of a person in the limelight,’ Olivia noted. ‘There is privilege but there’s other things that come with that.’

When asked how Chloe, an aspiring musician, is doing now, she discloses that Chloe is ‘happy and working… she’s in a good place’.
