An unidentified man was found dead in a home owned by Olivia Newton-John. Police suspect suicide to be the cause of the man's death.

Although not identified definitively by police, the Palm Beach Post reports that 42-year-old man was employed as a contractor by Newton-John and her husband, John Easterling. The house in question is located in the community of Jupiter Inlet Colony, Florida.

The body was discovered around midday on Monday (Aug. 19), and police were called to the scene shortly after noon. Police are said to be treating the death as a suicide; further details are not yet available.

While the owners were not at home on the day of the death, the property had multiple contractors working on Monday. It has been reported that Rosie O'Donnell was set to buy the home -- which last sold for over $4 million in 2009 -- from Newton-John.

Now 64, Olivia Newton-John skyrocketed to fame in the late 1970s and early 1980s with musical hits like "Let's Get Physical" and acting/singing jobs like the lead role in "Grease."
