Singer Olivia Newton-John and her husband John Easterling have responded to an incident at their Florida home in which a contract worker was found dead on Monday.
In an exclusive statement to ET on Tuesday, a rep for the couple said: "Olivia and her husband John are in shock over the tragic event that occurred at their Florida home yesterday. At this time we are awaiting additional information from investigators, but can confirm that the couple was not in Florida at the time and, the deceased was not a family member."
According to a police report obtained by ET, authorities were called to the Jupiter Inlet residence on Monday afternoon where they discovered the deceased 42-year-old white male, who had sustained a gun shot wound.
Jupiter police told the Palm Beach Post that the death appeared to be a suicide, but officers were officially treating it as a death investigation.
