Olivia Newton John is hitting back at rumors suggesting she has weeks to live by making a personal appearance on social media.

News website Now to Love reports the 70-year-old is "clinging to life".

Sending love to Olivia and her family.

Olivia Newton-John revealed on Thursday morning that rumours of her death "have been greatly exaggerated".

It was alleged that Olivia, best known for playing Sandra Dee in Grease, was "hanging on" for daughter Chloe Lattanzi's wedding, following a 27-year fight against cancer.

On Tuesday, several Australian media outlets cited an "exclusive" Radar Online story that said the celebrity's "bodily functions appear to be shutting down".

Newton-John said she preferred not to refer to her cancer as a "battle" and was determined to overcome the deadly disease a third time.

Despite the loss, Krispy Kreme assured the officers that sweeter times were on the horizon. "We donut know what else to say". The driver of the Krispy Kreme Doughnuts vehicle noticed smoke billowing from the back as he drove through Lexington.

Her first experience with the illness led her to start the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute near Melbourne which since claims to be the "leader in the development of immunotherapies, targeted therapeutics and personalised cancer medicine".

The Grease star was diagnosed for the second time back in 2013, but chose to keep her treatment private.

But now her niece, Tottie Goldsmith, and her management have said the reports are wrong. The caption next to the post read, "Just giving you the heads up that Livvy is in good health, so let's leave that distressing rumor where it belongs".

It's understood the Radar Online story followed a report in the dubious USA tabloid National Enquirer, which touted a "tragic world exclusive" late last month. It seemed like the cancer was in remission, but a third tumor was found at the base of her spine in 2017. Newton-John said: "I believe I will win over it".

The site said Newtown-John had been hoping she'd live long enough to see daughter Chloe Lattanzi Wednesday fiancé James Driskill in 2019.

In September, the star told Seven's Sunday Night that she was treating the cancer "naturally, and doing really well".
