John Travolta’s 16-year-old son dies

January 2nd, 2009 // 141 Comments

John Travolta’s son Jett passed away today after suffering a seizure at a vacation home in the Bahamas. Authorities say Jett struck his head on the bathtub and died on the scene after attempts to revive him failed. TMZ reports:

We’re told 16-year-old Jett was vacationing with Travolta and wife Kelly Preston.
There have been reports that Jett was autistic, though Travolta has denied it, saying he suffers from Kawasaki Syndrome, a condition which often leads to heart disease.
Travolta’s attorney Michael Ossi says Jett suffered a seizure at his family’s vacation home at the Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island. Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful and he died on scene.

Wow, that’s horrifically sad and especially right after the holidays. My sincerest condolences to the Travolta family and Jett’s loved ones.

  3. #45 What is sadist is this kid died with all these lies being fed to him, that is truly sad.
    I hate that this kid is not going to have a proper funeral… with someone saying Psalm 23 or reading the Book of the Dead even just plop in the ground!

  4. He was rubbed out by COS assassins. They have to cleanse all “impurities” from the COS gene pool.

    This is tragic, and you’re a douche.

  8. leah

    My sincere apology to the family. This is a heart breaking experience for any one to go through. Please be compassionate.

  9. Aja ( the real )

    Some of your comments are physically sickening. Have you NO humanity like at all?

  10. luvbug

    This is just too sad. So sorry for the family

  11. ym

  12. Aja(the real)

  15. jesus

    why was this guy taking a bath? what is he, some kind of bitch? take a shower like a man.

  16. George W Bush

    I truly feel sorry for Jett! R.I.P. my friend… His mother and father were too embarrassed and too ignorant to face the fact that their son had autism. That said, they basically neglected him and ignored the fact that he needed treatment. So the poor soul dies in a bathroom while under the watch of a caretaker, while on a “family” vacation. I think it’s time that fat ass Travolta takes a good long look at “Stupidology” because it has poisoned his bald headed mind!!!

  17. Tom Cruise

    10:00AM?? I was bangin’ John and his hoe bag wife at that time today! Well, maybe it was just John. The hoe bag wife comment was to fool you into thinking I’m not gay. I made him dress up in his “Saturday Night Fever” outfit. Whhheeewwwwww, that’s a sight I don’t want to talk about. Rode his fat ass like an African Rhino though!!! I did! What does this have to do with the article you ask? Nothing.

    Rest in Peace Jett.

    Even if he had been diagnosed with autism, having autism doesn’t necessarily correlate with seizures– I’m not saying that you it’s impossible, sure, you can have autism and have a seizure, but that occurs due to a number of different (and unrelated) reasons.

    By saying that because his parents were in denial of his austism, that it is what holds them responsible for his death, is completely unfounded. Maybe if they knew he had bouts of seizures before (or other weird symptoms), and did nothing, then OK its undeniable neglect. But since we’re not coroners, investigators and never met the kid or the family, we cannot determine whether he had autism or not. So let it go.

    Also Travolta’s gayness should be left out of this discussion, since it also has nothing to do with the loss he’ll face for the rest of his life. Sad how this always seems happen to family’s with only one son.

    Well, my condolences to them. And a big f*ck you to all the miserable (self loathing) jerks out there.

    Bummer.

    So …

    …. this is the wake up call for John and Kelly to become atheists, now, like The Good Lord intended?

    (satire)

    (very very very sick satire)

    (hey, I’m grieving for my loved ones,too, but I’m not talking to an invisible being with strange spooky powers or unknowable space aliens or a guru who “has” all the answers. I’m dealing with it.)

    (…. and I deal with it like everything else …very dark humor … it keeps ME sane.)

  20. Buddy Love

    I’m glad this kid is dead. Only to get people to realize that Scientology is fake. According to them they have mastery of the physical world and their own fates. IF THAT WERE TRUE–this (ugly) kid would not have died.

    DON’T HAVE ANY SYMPATHY FOR A MAN WHO HAS NONE FOR YOU. SCIENTOLOGISTS believe that people who don’t believe in their bullshit are to be avoided.

    It’s a fucking cult and this kid was ugly as hell.

  21. Buddy Love

    And “rest in peace” is the stupidest fucking thing ever. YOU DIDN’T KNOW THIS KID. AND HE WASN’T YOUR FRIEND. People who are dead are dead, they ROT in the ground, and they can’t see your fake sympathy.

  22. markymark

    #70…. right on, brutha!! Fucking wankers that get on here and bleed their tears of sorrow about people they have never met (but they ARE celebrities) but probably curse under their breath about every hobo they pass on the street, or make a smartarse comment when they see a newsstory about retarded kids or famine in Africa… well FUCK YOU, CUNTS!

  23. markymark

    Oh yeah… and Scientologists deserve all the fucked-up karma they get… so there!

  24. Coll

    Devastating. I’m sincerely sorry for your dear son.
    Life will never be the same for you. Kindest thoughts for you all.

  25. Steve

    Very sad. It is pathetic how cruel and sickening some of the comments are. You are the worthless scum that nobody cares about. Don’t waste your breath as you’re already dead and low life beings.

  26. woodhorse

    @68 not bringing up gayness because it has anything to do with autism but using a male or female fuck buddy as a “caretaker” in lieu of a professional person for a child that is already seriously neglected is certainly worth, IMO, bringing up. Read the news again: the child was last seen on Thursday and found dead on Friday. Could that happen in your household?

  27. twzzlrgirl

    #48 — you talk about how awful the comments are on here (and I totally agree)…but then you go on to wish these posters’ kids would get kidnapped and die?? What is wrong with you? I wish these people would STFU, too…but I don’t wish their kids any harm in return. You are a hypocrite.

    Oh, and superfish guy…when the hell are you going to read some of this crap and then actually use your ability to “remove inappropriate comments.”???? Free speech be damned…when posters are suggesting sex with a 16 year old dead child.

    okay. that was a little funny! But some of you on here are over the top, even for this site.

  29. ………………………AS UGLY AS HIS DAD IS, folks!!

    hot off the press:

    January 2nd, 2009
    Which celebrity family is soon going to come under serious attack from both law enforcement and the medical community? A death in their family may have been preventable had the family sought proper medical treatment for the victim. Instead, they publicly denied the deceased’s true condition, and privately refused treatment that could have prevented the tragic death. A District Attorny is now consulting with medical experts and the Coroner to determine jurisdiction and to see if charges can be brought.

    Some people use seizure medication for their children with seizures – kind of like that whole diabetic/insulin thing – and then there’s at least one who treats his child’s illness with an E-METER.

    This is so sad. The number one nightmare of parents is to die and leave their children motherless/fatherless, but running a close second is the death of a child. What horrific pain that must be.

  32. Chocolate Leg

    Why doesn’t Scientology aknowledge Autism as a disease?

    Because they are cunts.

  33. Ms.Whiplash

    Hey Shelle, don’t speak for everybody else. I think you have it backwards-at least in my opinion. I would sacrifice my own life for either one of my children in an instant.

  34. havoc

    This is truly sad. Sorry for the family.

    But “Kawasaki Syndrome”. WTF is that?!?!?

    .

  35. rick with a silent p

    I heard Travolta kept Jett locked up like “the gimp” in Pulp Fiction. Same leather outfit too.

  36. Randal's bisexual male lover

    His son died from an accident on Kawasaki jet skis? Those thinks are dangerous.

  37. PostmortemG

    “Also he was too fat and ugly to live. Only pretty people r good. And people that smart like me.”

    Smart for the projects, maybe.

  38. Kodos

    Damn, this is fucking rough.
    Sympathies to Travolta and his hot wife.

    This is hardcore for any family to deal with. Travolta is kind of the anti-Cruise when it comes to the Scientology weirdness in the entertainment world and he and his hot wife have already outlasted most marriages in HollyWEIRD.

    Did I mention his hot wife?

  39. Jake

    Geezus. Did you see the size of that kids head? You have to wonder how he ONLY managed to hit the bathtub. You’d think he’d have hit the tub, the sink, and everything else in the room too.

    Oh crap. I just thought of something. Maybe it’s a lie, his hitting his head. I bet Tom Cruise was in there trying to drown him like a puppy, yelling the whole time about how only Scientology people can stop and fix car accidents and cure kids with huge noggins.

  40. RIP JETT

    because of the comments allowed here..I will never visit this distastefull, disrespectfull site again…ever RIP Jett All my love to Kelly and John……people are hurting

  41. RIP JETT

  42. Earl

    Good. Fuck off #90-91.

  43. Buzzkillington

    Jett likes to take it in the butt. The dead, fat, rotting butt.

    I hope shit rains down from the sky on his face. He’d probably eat it all because he’s such a fat useless fuck.

  44. missywissy

    Hey #77, I was saying that the immature comments on this site are made by children that need to be taken from their parent’s homes. NOT that people who make fucked up comments should have their children taken from them. Let’s all hope these people don’t have kids or are fertile.

  45. Aja(the real)

    That retard shouldnt have been on a motorcycle in the first place.

  46. I think this is a very sas situation for the family to go through in front of cameras. What does bother me is they are going to have two Dr’s do the autopsy so they ensure a good job is done. Why is he special? Why 2? Treat him as you would treat any other non famous person!

    Thats sad but imagine have John Travolta as a dad. Poor guy can’t leave scientology because he’s afraid they’ll reveal his homosexuality even though we all know!

    Now I feel bad for LOLing so hard

  50. I'd feel bad

    Look at the way he’s looking at his mom’s legs – autistic or not, the kid probably was jacking off in the shower at the thought of blowing some non-fag jizz into his mommy.
