The troubled daughter of Aussie music icon Olivia Newton-John has opened up about her dangerous drug and alcohol habit which almost took her life.
Chloe Lattanzi has spoken of how her "severe panic disorder", which was brought on by her anorexia six years ago, eventually led to her out-of-control addictions to cocaine and alcohol.
"I started to get into the party scene, drinking every night, and then before long I got introduced to cocaine and all of a sudden, the combination of those two things took away all the fear and depression and that is when the cycle began," she told Woman's Day magazine from her Los Angeles home.
"I was using most days and nights . . . I was so out of it during this time I don't even remember waking up most mornings."
Despite her mother's hugely famous profile, Lattanzi managed to keep her dangerous addictions from Hollywood's gossip-hungry media.
And although she had always been open about her drug battles with Newton-John, who was living in Florida at the time, it was only last September that she revealed just how serious her addictions had become.
"Telling your mum you have a problem with cocaine and alcohol is not easy," she said. "I was hysterical. It was a year of bottled-up pain.
"I had been trying to put on a brave face for people and tell everyone that everything was OK but then that night I could not do it anymore."
With the help of Newton-John and fiance James Driskill, the 27-year-old was able to seek help and get back on track.
Newton-John organised for Lattanzi to see a renowned US therapist and she was then admitted to a rehabilitation centre in California, where she stayed for seven months.
"I honestly felt for the first time in my life that there was hope," she said.
While it has been a slow and steady road to recovery for Lattanzi, she is able to start planning for her nuptials, having been engaged to Driskill since 2010."I finally feel ready to start planning our wedding," she said. "There's so much to look forward to."
