John Travolta’s Son Suffers Fatal Seizure
Pulp Fiction actor John Travolta, 53, and his 46-year-old wife Kelly Preston’s 16-year-old son, Jett, has died, reports TMZ.
Rand Memorial Hospital, a medical center in the Bahamas, confirmed the passing. The family was vacationing on Grand Bahama Island, where attempts to revive the teenager were unsuccessful after he suffered a seizure, said family attorney Michael Ossi.
A police spokesperson also told TMZ that Jett struck his head in a bathtub of the family home, at Old Bahama Bay Hotel.
Jett, survived by eight-year-old little sister Ella, has long been rumored to be autistic. The family’s official position has been that Jett was afflicted with Kawasaki disease.
Kawasaki is a treatable disease that effects the skin and lymph nodes. If left untreated, it can cause heart complications. This is obviously a time of great sadness in the Travolta household. They have lost a cherished member of their family:
Reps for Travolta and Preston have been contacted for comment.
