More problems for Olivia Newton John. Her 27-year-old daughter has substance abuse issues. Chloe Lattanzi told Australia’s Women’s Day magazine that the L.A. lifestyle caused her to spiral into using cocaine and alcohol about four years ago. “I started to get into the party scene, drinking every night, and then before long I got introduced to cocaine and all of a sudden the combination of those two things took away all the fear and depression and that is when the cycle began,” recounted the young woman, whose father is actor Matt Lattanzi, with whom Olivia costarred in Xanadu (he was also ironically in Grease 2).
Last week, a contractor committed suicide in the home Newton-John shares with her husband John Easterling in Jupiter.
