Olivia Newton-John, 72, is set to work with her ex-boyfriend’s ex-wife Yvette Nipar, 56, as they recount his life up until his mysterious disappearance 16 years ago. Patrick McDermott vanished from a fishing boat in 2005 and has never been found.
But the baffling circumstances might soon be unravelled as the pair spill all in their detailed account of his life.
Of the pending book, a source told Woman’s Day magazine: “Yvette and Olivia have become very close over the years.”
“They’re bonded by their confusion over the whole thing.”
21 Jump Street actress Yvette also previously admitted she had been wanting to “put it all out there” for some time.

The Hollywood cameraman was 48 years old when he went missing off a fishing boat, which had set off from San Pedro Marina on 30 June, 2005.
There were an additional 22 passengers aboard but none of them saw him go overboard during the trip.
He was reported missing a week later when he failed to show up for a family gathering, leading a worried Olivia, who was in the middle of a promotional tour in Australia at the time, to contact the authorities.
In a 2016 interview on 60 minutes, the Grease actress addressed the incident and noted that she had to learn to accept that she would never know what happened to her boyfriend.
