John Travolta is Tired of Testifying in The Bahamas

John Travolta

Which has nothing do with this Australian men’s soccer team he just made friends with. Purely coincidental.

With the first case ending in a mistrial, John Travolta has decided to drop extortion charges against the paramedic who demanded $25 million from the actor in exchange for not releasing a “Refuse to Transport” document when his 16-year-old son Jett tragically died shortly after Christmas 2008, according to People:

The Pulp Fiction actor and his family asked that the charges be dropped because he had “concluded that it was in my family’s best interest for me not to voluntarily return to the Bahamas to testify a second time at trial,” Travolta said in a prepared statement. “Almost a year later, the long pending status of this matter continued to take a heavy emotional toll on my family, causing us to conclude that it was finally time to put this matter behind us.”
The former paramedic would not comment on specifics about the case, but maintains he has good will toward the actor. “I’m a Travolta fan,” he says. “I will always be a Travolta fan. My favorite movie is Grease.”

Oh, look at that. He’s a fan of Grease. Because I’m sure that’ll make John Travolta forget this whole thing ever happened. No, really, he probably stopped trying to guide Jett’s soul into Kelly Preston’s uterus for a second and went, “Hey, honey, did you see this? That extortionist guy loves the easiest movie to remember I was in. We should send him a ham.”

    His Thetan ass settled. He was probably “persuaded” by his scientology handlers.

    • Harry Wyckoff

      He didn’t settle. He realised the Bahamas is too corrupt to ever get anything close to justice. Remember this is the country where a high ranking politician deliberately caused a mistrial the first time round to ensure his colleague (Bridgewater) wouldn’t be found guilty (which she most clearly was).

      He needs to get all Swordfish/FaceOff on their asses.

      • Crabby Old Guy

        Don’t forget Pulp Fiction. Him and Jules need to call Marcellus Wiley and go all medieval on their ass. In the meantime, I’ll take care of Kelly Preston. Really good care.

        Marsellus Wallace. Not Wiley. But I’m with ya, COG.

      do you even know what this story is about? Travolta wasn’t being SUED, he was testifying in a criminal trial.

      why, oh why, isn’t stupidity painful?

    If I was directly responsible for the death of my son because my crazy religious beliefs told me to deny he was sick and withhold the appropriate medication I’d be pretty tired of talking about it in court too.

    • McFeely Smackup

      True. except that in this case that’s not what happened. Not only was Jet Travolta prescribed and taking anti-seizure medication at the time of his death, but Scientology doesn’t even oppose it.

      You’ve confused their anti-psychiatry position with some kind of anti-all-medicine position. How you did that, I don’t know…I assume there’s a lot of general ignorance involved.
