John Travolta’s 16-Year-Old Son Has Died

I am a zillion light years late with this, but I was traveling back from California to NYC for most of today. I know I just disappeared. I figured I’d write a note to you bitches in the terminal, but Long Beach Airport’s janky ass internet was not cooperating, so I had to nix it. But here’s the story. Skip it if you’ve heard it a million times already.

John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s 16-year-old son, Jett, died in the Bahamas while he was on vacation with his family. Jett was last seen going into the bathroom in one his family’s suites at the Old Bahama Bay Hotel last night. His body wasn’t discovered until 10 this morning by his caretaker, Jeff Michael Kathrein. Jeff is the blondie in the picture below and he was also caught kissing on John Travolta back in 2006.

TMZ says that the police report states Jett suffered a seizure and hit his head on the bathtub. John’s attorney said his son died at the scene after attempts to revive him were unsuccessful. His attorney also said that Jett had a history of seizures.

There were rumors that Jett was Autistic, but John has always denied this and even threatened to sue over it. John said Jett had Kawasaki Syndrome, a disorder that can lead to heart disease. Kelly Preston later blamed household cleaners for all of Jett’s health problems. She said one of L. Ron Hubbard’s detoxification programs helped Jett.

An autopsy is being performed on Jett to find the exact cause of death.

I’ll admit that when I first heard about this, the word “Scientology” came at me in big evil letters, but we won’t know anything until the autopsy. When I was on the plane, the women behind me were watching this story on Larry King and totally saying all this crazy shit. People were totally giving them the side-eye. They should’ve wrote this post. All I know is that this sad all around and I will leave it at that.
