True Demi Moore Could Face LawsuitEver since it was revealed that a man was found dead in Demi Moore's pool on Sunday, new reports suggest that the A-Lister could be facing a lawsuit as a result of the incident. Entertainment lawyers speculate that Demi could be "held responsible" after a friend of her assistant's, 21-year-old Edenilson Steven Valle, was found floating in the deep end after being in the water an estimated 10-15 minutes. Entertainment lawyer Julian Chan revealed to FOX411 that "employers are liable for the acts of their employees whether or not they are on the premises." “In having a party around a pool where people might become intoxicated, a host has a responsibility to ensure their safety,” Chan told the outlet. Furthermore, attorney Leo Terrell told FOX411 that "Moore could face a lawsuit for negligent supervision." Terell explains, “As the homeowner, she will be accused of failing to provide proper pool supervision. The lawsuit will attack Demi's failure to insure the safety of the guests from the danger of the pool.” Demi released a statement regarding the tragedy, giving her condolences to the young man's family and friends. "I was out of the country traveling to meet my daughters for a birthday celebration when I got the devastating news," the actress said, adding that what happened was an "unthinkable tragedy, and my heart goes out to this young man's family and friends."
