(30 June 2008 - present)
In June 2008, Newton-John secretly wed John ("Amazon John") Easterling, founder and president of natural remedy firm, Amazon Herb Company. The couple had first met 15 years earlier, but they only became romantically involved in 2007. (Like Newton-John, this was Easterling's second marriage.) The couple married alone in a private Incan spiritual ceremony in Cuzco, Peru on 21 June followed nine days later by a legal ceremony on the Jupiter Island beachfront in Florida. There were no guests at either service since the couple preferred to marry simply and privately. Only Newton-John's daughter, Chloe, was aware of the nuptials. The couple did not announce their marriage until a 4 July barbecue at Newton-John's Malibu, California home, where guests were surprised with the news. The wedding was confirmed thereafter by HELLO! Magazine which published exclusive pictures of both weddings. In June 2009, the Easterlings purchased a new $4.1 million home in Jupiter Inlet, and Newton-John sold her home in Malibu, California.

CANBERRA (Reuters) - Olivia Newton-John, best known for her role in the 1970s hit movie "Grease," got married for a second time in a surprise ceremony last week, according to media reports.
Newton-John, 59, married 49-year-old American entrepreneur John Easterling at her home in Malibu, California, according to The Daily Telegraph newspaper of Sydney.
Guests arrived at the house thinking they were attending a Fourth of July Independence Day barbecue to find they were participants in the couple`s wedding.
The actress and singer, whose hits included "You`re The One That I Want" with John Travolta in 1978, went ahead with the wedding even after a brush fire broke out in a nearby canyon.
A source told the newspaper that the British-born singer and actress, who was raised in Australia, said she had gone through too much in her life already and she was not going to let anything interfere with her happiness. The couple, who began dating last year, are both environmental campaigners.
Newton-John, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, is also an avid campaigner for breast cancer awareness, leading a three-week celebrity walk along the Great Wall of China in April this year.
She divorced her first husband Matt Lattanzi in the mid-1990s after he had an affair.
In 2005, she was devastated by the disappearance of her boyfriend of nine years, 48-year-old Patrick McDermott, who went missing on a fishing trip off the California coast.
In 2007, Newton-John was back in the headlines when it was revealed that her daughter was suffering from anorexia.
