Chloe Lattanzi says living with her mother Olivia Newton-John during the Covid-19 pandemic has been a ‘huge part of staying healthy’
Chloe Lattanzi overcame drug addiction and an eating disorder in her younger years.
And she has continued to make her health a priority during the Covid-19 pandemic, saying that living with her famous mother, Olivia Newton-John, has helped keep her balanced.
The singer, 35, who runs a medical cannabis farm with her fiancé, James Driskill, told Studio 10 on Wednesday she was ‘blessed’ to be living so close to nature with her mum in California.

‘We are very blessed that we are not trapped in the city and that we get to be out in nature and that is a huge part of staying healthy for me,’ she said.
‘It’s [all about] getting an adequate amount of sunshine and fresh air, and we feel very blessed.’
Olivia added: ‘I feel so badly to people who have been cooped up because I’m so lucky to be in the country and have animals.
Struggles: Chloe has previously spoken about her past mental health issues, including body dysmorphia and anorexia. She was also addicted to cocaine in her early twenties

Olivia’s health update comes after she told the Herald Sun she and Chloe have no plans to get vaccinated against Covid-19, despite the jab being available in the U.S.
‘Not at this point, no,’ the Hopelessly Devoted To You singer said.
While Olivia didn’t explain her reasons for not getting vaccinated, her daughter was more outspoken.

‘I’m not an anti-vaxxer, I’m anti putting mercury and pesticides in my body, which are in a lot of vaccines,’ she said.
‘To me real medicine is what comes from the earth. I think people trust vaccines because the doctor says it is safe, I used to.’
Chloe, who has no medical qualifications, claimed she’s ‘done research’ and now believes vaccines aren’t safe.
‘If I had a chance to take herbs and plants as a baby rather than have toxins injected into me I would have done that,’ she said.
WHY VACCINES ARE IMPORTANT
Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting people against harmful diseases before they come into contact with them.
Immunisation not only protects individuals, but also others in the community, by reducing the spread of preventable diseases.
Research and testing is an essential part of developing safe and effective vaccines.
In Australia, vaccines must pass strict safety testing before the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) will register them for use. Approval of vaccines can take up to 10 years.
Before vaccines become available to the public, large clinical trials test them on thousands of people.
High-quality studies over many years have compared the health of large numbers of vaccinated and unvaccinated children. Medical information from nearly 1.5 million children around the world have confirmed that vaccination does not cause autism.
People first became concerned about autism and immunisation after the medical journal The Lancet published a paper in 1998. This paper claimed there was a link between the measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism. Since then, scientists have completely discredited this paper. The Lancet withdrew it in 2010 and printed an apology. The UK’s General Medical Council struck the author off the medical register for misconduct and dishonesty.
