Olivia Newton-John Sold off Her Real Estate After Stage 4 Cancer Diagnosis

Olivia Newton-John found out she had stage 4 cancer in 2018. A year later, in 2019, she sold most of her huge real estate portfolio so she could put more money into her foundation and wellness center, The Post has learned.

“Olivia was always happy to help. “She gave back for the last 20 years of her life,” a person who knew Newton-John told The Post. “She wanted to leave something behind that would last and that her daughter could also use.”

In 2019, Newton-John put her California horse ranch on the market for $5.4 million. She had a 36-year-old daughter with her first husband, Matt Lattanzi, named Chloe Rose Lattanzi. But the “Grease” star chose to spend her last days in the house, the source said.

Instead, records show that Newton-John, who died on Monday at the age of 73, officially gave full ownership of the Santa Barbara estate to her husband, John Easterling, in October 2021. Easterling then refinanced the mortgage on the home, which still owed $2.5 million.

The source said, “She was in a lot of pain, but she was a fighter.” “The place was her heaven on earth, and she spent a lot of her last days there.”

The four-bedroom, five-bathroom Santa Ynez home was bought by the two for $4.69 million in 2015.

On over 12 acres next to the Santa Ynez River, there was the main house that was 4,452 square feet and had a two-bedroom guest house, a barn, horse stables, and a pool.

The modern estate was built in 2008, and the main house has wood accents, a sky-lit ceiling in the great room, windows in the gourmet kitchen, and a luxurious sunroom.

In June 2019, a month after she put her California home on the market, she put her 189-acre farm in Australia on the market.

Newton-John bought the land in the 1980s. It is in the New South Wales town of Dalwood, and the house was rebuilt in the early 2000s.

It sold for $4.6 million a month later.

The French country-style property has eight lots, the main house with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and a guest suite with one bedroom, according to the previous listing.

The outside of the house is terracotta-colored, and the inside is rustic. It also has wraparound terraces.

The previous listing said that the compound has its own large rainforest with a natural waterfall, two dams, a creek, and a lot of birds. It is also right next to a national park called Victoria Park Nature Reserve, which makes it even more private.

The late Australian singer, actor, and businesswoman Olivia Newton-John put money into her Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre at Melbourne’s Austin Hospital over the years. She built the facility in 2012 at a cost of $189 million. It was built with money from the state, the federal government, and private donations.

In 2005, she helped start the award-winning Gaia Retreat & Spa, a health retreat in Byron Bay’s Bunjalung Country, which is often called the”healing heartland” of Australia.

In recent years, she also started the Olivia Newton-John Foundation.

In an interview with Forbes in 2020, she said, “The idea is to fund research into kinder ways to treat cancer, prevent cancer, and live well with cancer.” “So, I think we’ll get to a point where it’s just treated like any other illness that you can sort of control and live well with, and, of course, we’ll hope to find a cure for. I try to live well, and I hope that I can help other people do the same.”

She was first told she had breast cancer in 1992, then again in 2013, and for the last time in 2017

The four-time Grammy Award winner is best known for her role as Sandy in “Grease,” which also starred John Travolta and won a lot of praise.

She was born in England in 1948 but moved to Australia when she was 14 years old.
