LATEST: Ving Rhames is planning to relocate his dogs, who were recently reported to have mauled his caretaker to death, to a friend's estate in Canada - because keeping the animals in his care would leave him vulnerable to lawsuits.
The Pulp Fiction star's caretaker and friend Jacob Adams, 40, died in front of Rhames' Brentwood, California home earlier this month (Aug07).
While it was first reported Rhames' dogs had mauled Adams to death, officials are now looking into the possibility Adams suffered either a heart attack or an aneurysm.
But whatever doctors decide was the cause of Adams's death, Rhames knows he won't be able to walk his pets freely again.
He tells website People.com, "God forbid that I'm outside with my dogs and they look at a person and the person wants to sue me."
