Olivia Newton-John’s ex Matt Lattanzi breaks silence about her death

Olivia Newton-John tragically died on Aug. 8 at her home in California, according to TMZ. Newton-John is survived by her loving husband, John Easterling, and daughter Chloe Rose, whom she had with ex-husband Matt Lattanzi in 1986. The couple divorced in 1995 after Lattanzi was rumored to be having an affair with her babysitter, Cindy Jessup, who was only 23 at the time, according to the Daily Mail. Lattanzi later married Jessup just two years after his divorce from Newton-John. However, the couple had to remain cordial and maintain some sort of friendship as they still had to co-parent their daughter.

Newton-John told the Daily Mail, “We tried to remain friendly because we have a child and we made a pact that she was the most important thing in our lives and that we would never fight over her.” the late actor added: “Divorce is never [alright]’ and revealed that her parents also split when she was 10 – citing this as a possible reason why she ‘kept putting off marriage’.

While Newton-John’s relationship with Matt was definitely different following her divorce and his new marriage to her former babysitter, they appeared to remain friendly for the sake of their daughter. Now, Matt is finally breaking his silence on his ex-wife’s death.
