She continued, “So much love, joy, inspiration and kindness and we will always be hopelessly devoted to you,” referencing the song Olivia recorded for the Grease soundtrack.

One of the snaps showed Nicole with her arm around Olivia as they attended the second annual Penfolds Gala Black Tie Dinner at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles in 2005.

That same year, the Grease star was spotted with Keith’s, 54, arm around her at the 39th Annual Country Music Awards in New York.

It was the same year that Nicole and Keith met, and Olivia had been with them both on the fateful night at the 2nd Annual G’Day USA Gala in Los Angeles.

Keith originally met the fellow singer in 2002 at a songwriting retreat hosted by The Police manager Miles Copeland at his château in southern France.

They were brought together for a collaboration during which they began writing the song Sunburned Country, named after the book they were both reading at the time.

It wasn’t until Olivia went on tour to Nashville that they finished writing and recording.

She was a four-time Grammy winner with five number one hits, including her most popular album and her single Physical, which made her a sex symbol in 1981.

Olivia died peacefully Monday morning at the age of 73 at her home in Southern California, surrounded by family and friends.

It came after a brave and extraordinarily public decades-long battle with cancer, during which she was last diagnosed three times in 1992, 2013 and 2017.
