Hollywood producer Joel Silver is being sued by the family of his assistant after she drowned during a 2015 trip to Bora Bora for Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s honeymoon.
The parents of 28-year-old Carmel Musgrove claim that Silver and his company Silver Pictures are responsible for her death, The Hollywood Reporter reported. The lawsuit also claims that Silver’s personal chef Martin Herold is responsible for Musgrove’s death.
Musgrove’s nude body was found floating on the banks of a lagoon 500 yards away from her bungalow. She went missing two days earlier, PEOPLE reports, after a day of drinking and fishing.
Before she went missing, she allegedly visited Herold’s bungalow where they drank, smoked marijuana and consumed cocaine. She went to her room at 11 p.m., allegedly sent an email to Herold that read “xxx.” She was never heard from again.
According to the lawsuit, Musgrove died from “overconsumption of alcohol, consumption of cocaine, fatigue caused by overwork, heat stroke after the fishing trip and a midnight swim during unfavorable weather conditions.”
Silver, in addition to Jason Bateman and Jimmy Kimmel, attended Aniston and Theurox’s destination honeymoon.
