After an illustrious, decades-long career, Olivia Newton-John died on Monday, August 8. She was 73.

Writing on her official Facebook page soon after her death, her husband, John Easterling, noted that the celebrated singer had died on her ranch in the early hours of Monday, surrounded by family and friends.

Amid the uncertainty spawned by the tragedy, her husband also asked the public to allow the family some privacy as they mourn their departed. Also, the cause of death was not revealed. However, it is public knowledge that the singer has been battling breast cancer.
