“I am in absolute shock,” the mother-of-three said in a statement released through her publicist earlier today. “I was out of the country traveling to meet my daughters for a birthday celebration when I got the devastating news.”
Demi added the event is an "unthinkable tragedy" and her "heart goes out to this young man’s family and friends.”
According to law enforcement officials, Valle — who reportedly did not know how to swim — had gone missing for 10 to 15 minutes prior to his friends finding his body in the pool. He was pronounced dead on the scene at around 5:30 a.m. on Sunday morning.
