Chloe Lattanzi, daughter of Olivia Newton-John, chronicled her relapse on Instagram by posting photos of herself after a night out of drinking while admitting to falling off the wagon.

The 29-year-old had previously spent seven months in rehab for her addictions to cocaine, alcohol, and antidepressants, as well as anorexia, but sparked concern after posting photos of herself in a series of provocative poses. Lattanzi took to her Instagram account the next morning and admitted to relapsing. “If you’re sober stay sober. I went out last night and pissed my sobriety away,” she wrote. “Keep your sobriety. You never regret not drinking. The only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday."

Lattanzi’s anorexia first began at age 15 and she was finally sent to rehab three years later by Newton-John. But after receiving treatment for her eating disorder, her drug use began shortly after as she hit the club circuit with the likes of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. At her worst, she drank a bottle of vodka and took $100 worth of cocaine every day.

In an interview last year, Lattanzi admitted feeling instant “relief” the first time she took cocaine. “I never developed any tools for coping with my emotions. The only way I knew how to deal with emotional stress was through self-harm. That’s why I started doing drugs and drinking,” she said. “I got to the stage where the first thing I did each morning was to do cocaine. I was drinking and partying and going crazy.”

Lattanzi is currently a student at the Songwriting School of Los Angeles and reportedly working on the soundtrack to a movie.
