Olivia Newton-John, 69, reveals the tragic cancer diagnosis she kept secret

Australian superstar Olivia Newton-John has revealed she is again battling cancer, her third diagnosis in three decades, during an interview broadcast on Sunday night.

In an interview with Australia's Sunday Night television show, the singer-actress said she has been diagnosed with a tumor at the base of her spine.

"I thought, "it's my life", and I just chose to keep it to myself", she explained in the interview.

Newton-John was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, undergoing a partial mastectomy and reconstruction.

She opened up for the first time about her battle with cancer back in 2013, which was her second diagnosis, having previously kept it to herself.

"It's my life. I made a decision to just keep it to myself", she told "Sunday Night".

"There are moments. I'm human". So if I allow myself to do that.

Olivia told Sunday Night she has chose to treat this cancer with "modern" medicines and natural remedies, as well as cutting out sugar completely and taking cannabis oil for the pain. I have nothing to complain about, ' the Grease star said.

Newton-John, who turns 70 later this month, was catapulted to fame in 1978 when she starred opposite John Travolta as Sandy in the hit high school musical Grease.

Newton-John said that her husband John Easterling had been growing the plant, something she said he could do legally in California, where the couple live.

She revealed in May 2017 that she was battling breast cancer that had metastasized to her sacrum. I see it as part of my mission.

'There are other people out there doing much, much worse than me. "It's my life and I chose to keep it to myself". She's cut sugar out of her diet entirely, and is also taking cannabis oil for her pain.

'[My husband] makes me tinctures and they really help with the pain, they help with sleep, so I am very lucky I live in a state where [cannabis] is legal and also that I have a husband that's a plant medicine man. I have a wonderful husband.
