Olivia Newton-John's niece denies that the Grease icon is near death or in failing health.
Despite recent online buzz, Tottie Goldsmith tells Australia's Seven Network, "Livvy is in good health, so let's leave that distressing rumor where it belongs."
This runs counter to gossip in both the U.S. and Australia that she might have only weeks to live.
Olivia's L.A.-based publicist Michael Caprio calls reports of his client’s imminent demise "hilarious." In a time when "fake news" is an oft-used term, he adds, "You might want to get better sources versus reading tabloids." (News Corporation Australia)
