Demi Moore Sued After a Person Drowned and Died in Her Swimming Pool


Demi Moore has been sued by Jorge and Maria Valle, the parents of 21-year old Edenilson Steven Valle, who drowned during a party at Moore’s Beverly Hills home — two years ago.

Demi was out of town at the time of the incident in 2015. It was the caretaker of her house who threw the party and invited Edenilson.

Law Enforcement told TMZ that the victim did not know how to swim and that he was suspected to have slipped and fallen in the pool. They also said that no member of the actress’ family was present when the tragedy happened. The Los Angeles Police Department told People during that time that they found no evidence of foul play and the death was ruled to be an accident.

In the most recent development reported by TMZ, the parents are taking legal action against the Ghost actress because apparently, Demi’s pool lacked depth markers or other safety signage. The couple also claimed that the rocks around the pool created a trip hazard. Moreover, the parents also asserted that the temperature of the pool, which was set at 101 degrees, compromises brain function.

It is important to note that the wrongful death suit did not initially include Moore when the family filed the same in February. The original suit filed only included Lenny Hernandez (the host) and Bessy Wong (Demi’s business manager) as defendants.

Demi Moore has yet to issue a statement on the lawsuit.

It can be recalled that Moore, upon learning about the tragic incident, readily expressed shock and disbelief saying, “I was out of the country traveling to meet my daughters for a birthday celebration when I got this devastating news.”

The Hollywood actress also grieved with the victim’s family stating that “The loss of a child is an unthinkable tragedy and my heart goes out to this young man’s family and friends.”
