A 42-year-old man found shot dead at Olivia Newton-John's Florida home yesterday was a contractor working at the house, police say. Newton-John, who owns the home with husband John Easterling, was not at the Jupiter Inlet Colony house at the time, Reuters reports. The death appears to be a suicide, but police are still investigating, according to the Palm Beach Post. Gossip sites have reported recently that Newton-John was selling the 7,429-square-foot house, possibly to Rosie O’Donnell. (More Olivia Newton-John stories.)
