Per the lawsuit, Munn — who portrayed Psylocke in 20th Century Studios’ Marvel movie X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) — and her mother, Kimberly Schmid, allegedly had the roof on their home replaced in May 2021. According to a new report regarding the incident:

…Olivia and her mother, Kim Schmid, hired Celso Merida to work on replacing the roof at the home back in May, but on his 4th day on the job he fell from the roof and suffered a bunch of injuries.

The suit says the man died a couple weeks later, the cause of death was blunt force traumatic injuries.

The report also noted:

The man’s family also claims Olivia and her mom instructed him to work on the roof, even though the required safety guards and fall protection were not in place … creating what the family claims was an unreasonable risk of injury.
