Jett Travolta died from a seizure disorder
This picture Kills me.

John Travolta’s teenage son reportedly died from a "seizure disorder". An autopsy on 16-year-old Jett – who died on Friday after collapsing in the bathroom of his family’s Bahamas hotel – was carried out at the Rand Memorial Hospital in Freeport, Grand Bahama, yesterday (05.01.09).
Jett became very sick when he was a toddler and was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease, which leads to inflammation of the blood vessels in young children.
Jett was a very cute boy looks like his dad.This is so sad.

Travolta’s dogs killed by pickup at BIA
Airport: Employee did not see pets

5/18/10 | 117 comments
 
BANGOR, Maine — Two dogs that belonged to actor John Travolta and his family were accidentally struck and killed on the tarmac early last Thursday morning by an employee at Bangor International Airport, according to city officials.

An e-mail sent late last week by Bangor Interim City Manager Bob Farrar to the nine city councilors, which was obtained by the Bangor Daily News, confirmed the accident.

Asked to verify the details contained in that e-mail, the city released this statement:

“At approximately 1 a.m. on Thursday, May 13, 2010, an airplane carrying members of the John Travolta family landed at BIA. While there, two small dogs were taken for a walk by someone who is not a family member. An airport service pickup truck was approaching the airplane to service the airplane and did not see the dogs. Unfortunately, the dogs were struck and killed. The airport is investigating the accident. Out of respect for the family’s privacy the city will make no further comment.”

Airport Director Rebecca Hupp said normally it’s the airport’s policy not to comment on the identity of any passengers that come through Bangor, which is why, she said, she didn’t release a statement immediately after the accident happened.

“The airport takes safety very seriously,” Hupp said Monday afternoon. “Many flights come and go without incidents. Clearly, this is an unfortunate accident. Our deepest sympathies are with the family.”

It’s unclear whether any charges would be filed against the employee, who has not been named. Hupp also didn’t know whether the dogs were on leashes or not or what breed of dogs they were. The assistant who was walking the dogs was unharmed. The plane landed and was serviced at the main domestic terminal section of BIA.

Bangor police Lt. Steve Hunt confirmed Monday that officers responded to an incident at the airport that morning, but he declined to provide any details.

Paul Bloch, a publicist for Travolta, said Monday that he was unaware of the incident, but that he would look into it.

Travolta, 56, and his wife, actress Kelly Preston, 47, own a home on Islesboro off the coast of Waldo County, and the family likely was headed there after landing at Bangor. It wasn’t clear how many people were traveling with Travolta or if the actor, who is an accomplished pilot, was flying the plane.

In January 2009, the Travolta’s 16-year-old son, Jett, died after suffering a seizure while vacationing with family in the Bahamas. Travolta and Preston have one other child.

A longtime fixture in Hollywood dating back to the late 1970s with movies like “Grease,” “Saturday Night Fever” and “Urban Cowboy,” Travolta is still acting and was seen most recently in “Old Dogs” alongside Robin Williams.

Kelly Preston Pregnant? 'Star' Reports She & John Travolta Are Expecting A Baby (UPDATE: IT'S TRUE)

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/05/18/kelly-preston-pregnant-st_n_580984.html

UPDATE: It's true!

"It's impossible to keep a secret ... especially one as wonderful as this," they say in a statement. "We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone that we are expecting a new addition to our family.
Love, John, Kelly and Ella"

PREVIOUSLY:
Star magazine is reporting that Kelly Preston, 47, and John Travolta are expecting a baby.

"Kelly is about three months pregnant," a source tells the magazine. "Both she and John are absolutely over the moon -- they knew in their hearts that the time was right for this to happen."

If true, this is some happy news for John and Kelly during a difficult time. Their two dogs were killed in a freak car accident last week at a Maine airport. They lost their son Jett at the age of 16 last year and have a daughter, Ella, age 10.

John told People in 2007 that they were trying for another child.

"I was told by Kelly that at the end of the summer we're going to try," he said.

"[We'll try] after we finish the movie we're doing together, 'Old Dogs,' with Robin Williams and our daughter Ella. So after that!" Kelly added.

'Old Dogs' was released late last year.

Bahamas drops Travolta extortion charge
Actor decided not to pursue claim
September 6, 2010

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) - A judge in the Bahamas dismissed charges Monday against two people accused of trying to extort money from John Travolta after the prosecutor said the actor no longer wanted to pursue a case stemming from the death of his teenage son.

Prosecutor Neil Braithwaite had submitted a motion to drop the case after a jury had already been picked and a retrial about to start for the two defendants.

"The Travolta family has said that this matter has caused them unbelievable stress and pain and they wish to put this whole thing behind them," Braithwaite said.
