Olivia Newton-John, the powerhouse star of films like "Grease" and "Xanadu" tragically died at the age of 73 in her Southern California ranch home, TMZ reports. The singer behind hits like "Physical" and "You're the One that I Want" was diagnosed with cancer in the 1980s and, though she was in and out of remission over the 30 years she had the illness, it appears her cause of death was related to cancer.

The representative that confirmed her death did not state a cause, though a close source to the family told TMZ, "After a 30-year cancer journey, she lost her battle to metastatic breast cancer."

Her husband released an official statement regarding her death that read, "Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer. Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continue with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer." 

Fans are heartbroken over the legendary actress' passing. Taking a look at her last social media post has her supporters feeling all of the feels.

Some fans may have found out the heartbreaking news of Olivia Newton-John's death from her Instagram account. Her husband, John Easterling, made the official announcement from her account, writing a heartbreaking statement paired with a gorgeous photo of the late actress. The caption of the photo both detailed the tragic passing of his wife, and included the list of surviving family members. It's a heartbreaking read for any fan of the singer and actress.

However, looking back at her final post before her death is even more heart-wrenching. Just two days ago, Newton-John posted a beautiful photo of herself posing alongside Easterling with the caption, "#flashbackfriday." The photo was flooded with comments regarding how beautiful the pair were and wishing Newton-John well.

Newton-John and Easterling started dating in 2006 and tied the knot in 2008. He helped the actress mourn her former partner, Patrick McDermott, who went missing at sea and was assumed dead (via InTouch Weekly).

Of her beloved husband, Newton-John gushed to People in 2016, "I'm very lucky I have a wonderful, beautiful husband who is just so loving and fantastic." She added, "I always tell my friends you're never too old to find love. I found the love of my life at 59 going on 60! I'm grateful."

Newton-John will be deeply missed.
