A 42-year-old man was found dead yesterday (August 19) inside the South Florida home owned by Olivia Newton-John and her husband.

The singer and her family weren't at home when the man died, apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He is believed to have been a workman who had permission to enter the property, which is situated in Jupiter Inlet Colony near Palm Beach.

According to the Palm Beach Post, contractors had been working on the property and one of the workmen was spotted crying on Monday afternoon.

Local police are investigating the man's death, but have said that it appears to have been a suicide. It's recently been reported by several gossip websites that Newton-John and her husband are planning to sell their Jupiter Inlet Colony home to chatshow host Rosie O'Donnell for a rumoured $5.7 million (£3.6 million).

Newton-John, 64, is best known for her role in 1978's Grease and her 1981 hit single 'Physical'. In 2010 she made a couple of guests appearance in TV's Glee and this March completed a six-date UK tour including a show at London's Royal Albert Hall.
