Olivia Newton-John’s loved ones are setting the record straight about her health.
After recent tabloid reports claimed that her body is “shutting down” and that she has only weeks to live amid her third battle with cancer, her niece, Tottie Goldsmith, took to Instagram on Wednesday to address the alarming reports that the beloved Grease star is near death.
“Just giving you the heads up that Livvy is in good health, so let’s leave that distressing rumor where it belongs,” Goldsmith wrote alongside a red carpet photo of the two, adding a butterfly emoji.
“You can rest assured she is going nowhere and in really good health. A sick rumor,” she also told Australia’s Seven Network, sharing that her famous aunt gave her permission to speak publicly.
Meanwhile, Newton-John’s manager, Michael Caprio, denied the reports to The Daily Mail, calling them “hilarious.”
ET has reached out to Newton-John’s rep.
Last September, the 70-year-old singer revealed she’s battling cancer for the third time after doctors discovered a tumor at the base of her spine. She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992. She beat the disease after months of chemotherapy treatments and a partial mastectomy but revealed in May 2017 that the breast cancer had returned, spreading to her shoulder.
“I’m one of millions in this fight, in this journey,” Newton-John told Australian news program Sunday Night in September. “A lot of people see it as a fight and wherever you choose to see it, that’s your prerogative. … I see it as part of my mission, maybe.”
“There are other people out there doing much, much worse than me,” she continued. “And I’m a very privileged person and I’m very aware of that. I have nothing to really complain about.”
She also credited her husband, John Easterling, for being a huge support when she feels fear.
“I’d be lying if it said I never go there — there are moments, I’m human,” she admitted. “So if I allow myself to go there, I could easily create a big fear, but my husband’s always there, and he’s always there to support me and I believe I will win over it, and that’s my goal.”
ET spoke to Newton-John last February at a benefit concert hosted by Kevin Costner to help those affected by wildfires in Santa Barbara, California, before she revealed her third battle with cancer.
“I’ve been great,” she said about her health. “Yeah, I feel really good.”
“I feel so fortunate to have had the success I’ve had, and to do the wonderful things I do,” she added about taking the time to perform at the benefit amid her health struggles. “And to give back — I’d love to be able to do that.”

We’re taking fall dressing tips from Olivia Munn!
The Predator actress was spotted enjoying her weekend on Sunday in a stylish outfit we want to copy from head to toe.
The brunette adapted a fitted brown, ribbed spaghetti strap dress adorned with buttons for chillier weather by wearing a high-neck white scoop neck tee underneath for coverage. For more layers, Munn threw on a fuzzy, camel-colored longline cardigan, accessorized with sock boots, cross-body bag and round sunglasses.
The outfit is perfect for fall and we suggest trying the exact formula with the dress you bought in the summer. Add a tee, topper and boots and the frock is ready for multiple seasons.
Later that evening, ET’s Lauren Zima caught up with Munn at the First Annual #GirlHero Awards in Beverly Hills, California.

Olivia Munn is getting down to business.
Munn makes her debut on History Channel’s Navy SEAL drama, Six, as the ruthless and unapologetic CIA officer Gina Cline in the upcoming second season — and only ET has the exclusive first look at Munn’s badass introduction.
Highly intelligent and cunning, Gina has dedicated her entire life to the clandestine world of dangerous government assignments. Her latest mission? Hunting down a mysterious terrorist only known as the Prince, which becomes her most personal yet.
In ET’s exclusive first official photos from the new season, Munn digs into character with her boots on the ground for the crew’s latest mission.
In the exclusive season two cast photo, Munn takes center stage as she and her co-stars have their game faces on as they get combat ready.
The new season of Six, consisting of 10 episodes, kicks off with Navy SEAL Team Six on a mission to destroy the terrorist network responsible for the shooting of their former team leader, Richard “Rip” Taggart (Walton Goggins), whose fate is left up in the air. Led by Joe “Bear” Graves (Barry Sloane), the Navy SEALs will join forces with CIA officer Gina Cline (Munn) to scour Eastern Europe, infiltrating hostile territory and terrorist hot spots like Chechnya as they track the mastermind behind Michael’s (Dominic Adams) jihadist network. The chase will bring the Navy SEALs to the border of Russia, where the consequences of their actions could spark World War III.
In November, Munn — who joined the cast of Six last summer — shared a slick behind-the-scenes shot of her on location by a mountainside in Squamish, British Columbia, with Sloane, Edwin Hodge and Juan Pablo Raba.
“Loved working with these guys. Excited for everyone to see Season 2 of @sixonhistory when it comes out next year. It’s gonna be a #Supahhard season ?,” the Predator star captioned the photo.
Joining Munn, Sloane, Hodge, Adams and Raba in Six season two are Kyle Schmid, Jaylen Moore, Brianne Davis, Nadine Velazquez and new series regulars Eric Ladin and Nikolai Nikolaeff, along with recurring guest star Erik Palladino.
Six premieres Monday, May 28 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on History Channel, before settling into its regular time slot Wednesday, May 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Olivia Culpo is taking swimwear up a notch.
The former Miss Universe put her fit body on display in a fierce poolside ensemble while supporting the launch of the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue at Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Saturday. Culpo was all smiles, seemingly unaffected by recent rumors that she and boyfriend Danny Amendola broke up.
The brunette beauty turned heads in a sexy black two-piece, which she accessorized with a matching black cover-up, bold earrings, a chained belt and heeled sandals. “@si_swimsuit Fam Day,” she captioned a fun video on her Instagram Story.
Culpo kicked things off on Friday night, heading for a girl’s night with her sister, Aurora Culpo, and her friend, Cara Santana. “Grl pwr,” Culpo captioned a pic on Saturday morning. Amendola, meanwhile, has been in Austin, Texas, hanging out with his pal and fellow New England Patriots player Julian Edelman.
Rumors sparked that Amendola and Culpo had broken up earlier this week, after NFL player unfollowed Culpo on Instagram and deleted any photos of them together. Culpo, however, is still following Amendola, as well as fan sites dedicated to him.
ET has reached out to reps for Culpo and Amendola for comment.
