Olivia Newton-John went to her grave secretly carrying a torch for John Travolta, a new report claimed.
Olivia Newton-John Secretly Loving John Travolta For Years?
Sources told Globe Magazine, in its latest edition, that Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta had the same passion for each other in real life, but the timing was reportedly never right.
The entertainment news outlet claimed that Travolta was still reeling from the loss of his love, Diana Hyland, who died in his arms from breast cancer just three months earlier, when the duo stepped into their roles as greaser Danny Zuko and goody-two-shoes Sandy Olsson in the 1978 movie musical.
Insiders suggested that it was Olivia Newton-John who helped John Travolta navigate his grief, and the actor allegedly returned the favor when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992 and again in 2013. The actor reportedly stayed by Olivia’s side even after she received a devastating stage 4 death sentence in 2017.
Spies told Globe Magazine that John Travolta was also there for Olivia Newton-John when her 11-year marriage to Xanadu dancer Matt Lattanzi collapsed in 1995. However, by that time, the actor was already married to Kelly Preston.
Unfortunately, the 28-year-old story of John Travolta and Kelly Preston abruptly ended with the latter’s breast cancer death at 57 in 2020. A source told Globe Magazine:
“Olivia and John’s “combined tragedies continued to make them as close as two people could be – without becoming lovers!”
Close friends reportedly confided that, after Kelly passed away, Olivia Newton-John offered her support to John Travolta. However, by that point, the songstress was happily married to John Easterling.
An insider noted:
“Fate cruelly kept them apart.”
Following the death of Olivia Newton-John, John Travolta wrote on social media:
“I love you so much. We will see you down the road, and we will all be together again. Yours from the moment I saw you and forever! Your Danny, you John!”

The Grease actress was born on Sept. 26, 1948, in Cambridge, England. She is the youngest of three children. Her father, Brinley, was a headmaster and her mother, Irene, was the daughter of a Nobel Prize-winning physicist. The family moved to Melbourne when she was 5, and she learned to play the piano.
