Olivia Newton-John’s rep says the actress has canceled upcoming appearances over scheduling conflicts and not because of health issues, despite reports claiming she is battling cancer again.
“Olivia Newton-John’s two upcoming speaking appearances in Australia were canceled due to scheduling conflicts with her upcoming promotional tour for her new book, ‘Don’t Stop Believin’’ and the ONJ Cancer Wellness & Research Centre’s Wellness Walk & Research Run — not illness, as falsely reported,” her publicist, Michael Caprio, told Page Six on Wednesday.
“She’s looking forward to walking with everyone at the Wellness Walk on Sept. 16 in Melbourne and is excited that this year the walk is going global and people can support it by becoming virtual walkers from wherever they are in the world.”
New reports claimed that Newton-John’s breast cancer had returned and that she was hoping to make it to her 70th birthday in September.
She also previously said that medical marijuana has helped her tremendously throughout her treatment.
