Following the January 2nd death of their sixteen-year-old son Jett, John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston released the following statement:
“We would like to extend our deepest and most heartfelt thanks to everyone who has sent their love and condolences. Jett was the most wonderful son that two parents could ever ask for and lit up the lives of everyone he encountered. We are heartbroken that our time with him was so brief. We will cherish the time we had with him for the rest of our lives. We have received many messages of condolence from around the world and we want to thank everyone for their prayers and support. It has meant so much to us. It is a beautiful reminder of the inherent goodness in the human spirit that gives us hope for a brighter future. With love, John, Kelly and Ella.”
As the family continues to mourn, doctors are apparently performing an autopsy today to determine what took the teen’s life. But drama is already plaguing the Travoltas, as critics are beginning to point the finger at Scientology’s “anti-medicine” stance as a reason Jett may have not been receiving treatment for his seizures.
Even more scandalous is the report that the man John was once caught kissing, Jeff Kathrien, was Jett’s nanny. Reps for the family insist that Jeff found Jett shortly after he hit his head in the bathroom, and assert that the nanny was with his ward 24/7, even following his movements with a baby monitor. But cops believe that Jett was left undiscovered for over 10 hours, and the varying stories appear to be causing a rift between investigators and family insiders. [Photo: Splash News Online]
