Olivia Newton-John’s Daughter is Battling Anorexia

March 13, 2007 / Posted by:

Olivia Newton-John’s 21-year-old daughter, Chloe Lattanzi, gave an interview with Australia’s Woman’s Day about her struggle with anorexia. The magazine also talked to Olivia. Chloe who is still quite skinny today was asked how she’s dealing with things.

“I’m taking very good care of myself now but I’m not going to be like ‘Oh, I eat pizza every day!’ And I’m honest about that. It hurts my heart when I think how many girls are going through that [eating disorders], and I’m lucky that I got through it because it’s a fatal thing if you don’t pull through it.”

Olivia had some advice for other parents with children battling eating disorders. “That the parent need look at why their child has developed such a detrimental disease. And look at the issues causing the disorder. Listen to your child. Be supportive. Eating disorders are usually nothing to do with food. Parents need to be with their child to see them through it. All the therapists in the world can’t help if the parents aren’t present, loving and proactive.”

Damn, poor Olivia! She’s had breast cancer, a missing boyfriend and now this? Xanadu was bad, but not that bad! Everything will work out! She’s already grocery shopping in public and that’s a plus, right?
