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

Newton-John was not at the home in Jupiter Inlet Colony, a town near West Palm Beach, according to Sgt. Scott Pascarella, a spokesman for the Jupiter Police Department. 

Pascarella said the deceased man was a 42-year-old contractor who was working at the house owned by Newton-John and her husband, John Easterling. 

Police are investigating the circumstances of his death, Pascarella said. 

Newton-John starred in the 1978 movie "Grease" with John Travolta. Her hits include the 1981 song "Physical," a song from the album of the same name.
