A man has been found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound inside singer Olivia Newton-John's home in Florida, local media report.

Ms Newton-John's family was not at home at the time of the shooting and the man was not a family member, police said.

The Palm Beach Post reported construction was being done on the home near Palm Beach and a worker could be seen crying.

Police were investigating, although they said it appeared to be a suicide.

The property in Jupiter Inlet Colony is owned by Ms Newton-John and her husband, according to public records.

The Australian actress and singer's hits include You're The One That I Want from the 1978 movie Grease and 1980s hit Physical.
