A few weeks ago, we reported that the Grease legend, Olivia Newton-John has once again been sadly diagnosed with breast cancer. But now it is her daughter, Chloe Lattanzi that is causing a stir on social media, and many fans are worried about her recent picture and message on Instagram.
The picture, a black-and-white photograph of Chloe, with her ribs showing, was posted with a lengthy caption, reading,
You know what. It’s back up. Ok I’m too skinny. Say what you like. I can’t care anymore. I am in so much pain and one fun thing for me to do is take pictures and be creative to forget about my troubles. I just got up off the floor I’ve been sobbing for an hour, feeling the collective energy of strangers all over the world weighing in on my family problems.
Chloe Lattanzi has previously battled with anorexia and depression, and her recent messages and posts, suggest that recent events in her family may have caused her illnesses to flare up again.
Her message also states her fear of losing her mother, and the problems life in the spotlight have on both of their illnesses.
My mom told me she was assaulted the other day by a woman with a camera asking her, how’s your cancer? The fans want to know?! Can you imagine how you would feel.
But Chloe’s fans weren’t shy on her social media, branding her ‘too skinny’ and another asking her to ‘please eat something.’ Of course, a mental health condition isn’t quite as simple as eating more!
We wish all the best to Chloe Lattanzi and Olivia Newton-John, and hope that the pair can come through this together.
