The blonde icon is battling cancer for a third time and is being treated with radiation therapy and natural remedies including cannabis oil. 

The news comes after Olivia’s manager spoke out about the singer’s health on Wednesday afternoon.

The singer’s US-based manager, Michael Caprio, clarified that Olivia was not in fact dying.

The Grease star was said to have ‘only weeks to live’, according to reports from both Australia and the U.S.

An unnamed ‘insider’ told Radar Online last week: ‘Olivia’s bodily functions appear to be shutting down, but she refuses to let go until she makes it through [her daughter] Chloe’s wedding day.’

The report was followed up by Australian entertainment website Now to Love, which claimed she had a ‘prognosis [of] weeks not months’. 

Caprio said that articles about his client’s death were ‘hilarious’, adding: ‘You might want to get better sources versus reading tabloids.’ 

In May 2017, Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer for a third time, more than 20 years after her first diagnosis.

She also secretly battled breast cancer for a second time back in 2013. 

Explaining why she chose not to go public with her second diagnosis, Olivia said last year: ‘I thought, “It’s my life”, and I just decided to keep it to myself.’ 

During an interview with Sunday Night in September 2018, the veteran entertainer admitted she had ‘moments’ when her cancer diagnosis scared her.

‘I’d be lying if I said I never [get scared]. There are moments, I’m human,’ she said.

‘If I allowed myself to go there, I could easily create that big fear. But my husband’s always there, and he’s there to support me. I believe I will win over it. That’s my goal.’
