MIAMI – A man was found shot dead Monday in the Florida home of actress and singer Olivia Newton-John, police said.

The actress and her husband, John Easterling, were not in the house when the incident happened, said police in Jupiter Inlet Colony, north of Palm Beach.

A local newspaper called the incident a suicide but police refused to confirm this.

The man was neither a resident nor a member of the family.

The nearly 7,500-square-foot house, located on 35 acres by the coast, was built in 1975 and was bought by the couple in 2009 for $4.1 million.

Newton-John is famous for her role as Sandy in the 1978 movie “Grease,” based on the Broadway hit musical. She is also a four-time Grammy winner.
