Strange doings out of Beaumont, involving a private investigator, a faded pop star and the mysterious semi-death of her lover.
Beaumont PI Philip Klein tells RadarOnline that he has proof that Pay McDermott is alive! He's alive!!!
Which leads to the question "Who is Pat McDermott, and why should we care?"
McDermott was the lover of Olivia Newton-John, the Australian singer of such cheese as "I Honestly Love You" and "Physical." McDermott allegedly died in a boating accident in 2005.

But there are allegations he faked his death in order to escape financial woes. Klein says the guy is now living under the radar " as a deckhand in the small Mexican fishing town of Sayulita."
Which is about as under the radar as you can get.
Part of the proof: This fax from February, in which someone named "Cacma D" (the last initial is apparently necessary to forestall confusion with all the other people named Cacma) told him McDermott "is alive and very well" but doesn't wish to be bothered.
As for Newton-John, we can only assume her eyes are eagerly looking towards Beaumont, in the hopes she once again can be torn between two lovers.
