Olivia Newton-John's daughter Chloe Lattanzi blames growing up in the spotlight for her spiral into booze and drug addition. The Grease star's daughter with actor Matt Lattanzi admits she fell into a bad crowd after struggling to cope with being the offspring of a famous couple, and quickly became hooked on cocaine. In an interview with Australian magazine Women's Day, she says, "Growing up I was under immense pressure being the daughter of such a famous woman. "You don't have a normal childhood and you don't have that space to make mistakes and find your feet, as everyone is watching you. "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 things took away all the fear and depression and that is when the cycle began." Lattanzi has been in a rehab centre for the last seven months and now she's adamant she has finally overcome her demons at the age of 27. She adds, "I honestly felt that for the first time in my life there was hope. I am really proud of how far I've come and so are all my family..."
