John Travolta's Son Dies

John Travolta's son, 16-year-old Jett, died today, Friday.

Jett died while the family was on vacation in the Bahamas.

While circumstances surrounding the death are unknown, it can be surmised that it has something to do with Kawasaki disease, from which Jett reportedly suffered.

Not much is understood about Kawasaki disease, which is a condition that affects many parts of the body. It affects mostly boys under the age of 5. Its greatest complications are cardiac, which often lead to heart attack, even in children.

Our hearts go out to the Travolta family.

    Sad for a parent to lose a child, buuuut they should have treated his condition. I would say God bless them, but they don't believe in God….oh, but they're probably praying to God and asking for strength during this time or maybe they are praying to Xenu asking for answers.

    SO Sad. My heart aches for the family. He is with his eternal family now, smiling and happy

    This is Karma in its purest form that I've ever seen. Jett did not suffer from Kawasaki disease. No, he suffered from Autism. The Travoltas never ever helped the cause. They never raised awareness or money or did anything for other parents suffering the same heartache. They just hired their private therapists and denied he had anything close to Autism.

    As soon as I heard this story on the radio this morning I instantly became suspicious. It said he died by hitting his head on the bathtub!! Excuse me but since when does a normal 16 year old hit his head in a "bathtub"?? Something is not right about this. And then I hear people talking about a jet ski accident, so already weird stories are going around. I also heard that Travolta is deeply ashamed of his son's condition and never shows him in public, so this together with the weirdo religion and apparent reluctance to get the child proper medical attention, leaves me with MANY questions and suspicions. This has nothing to do with disrespect, it is a very valid concern. I am deeply sorry for Jett as no child should have to endure what he apparently has gone through and no child should have to die so young, RIP Jett, you will be in a far better place now, so sorry for you!!

    This is so sad, my prayers are with the family
    everyone here has so much hate against john, he is not the first or the last parent who have choose a different kind of threatment and saddly didnt helped, im sure this will make him change but its no reason for hating him, he just lost a child common people have a heart and think he is sad in this moment



  6. 106

    oh and im sorry for any mistakes in my message but my english is not so good

    Sad that Jett was probably deprived of proper medical treatment for this illness. Scientologists have their heads so far up their asses that they probably think it was 'meant to be' instead of realizing that perhaps modern medicine could have helped this innocent boy. People have a right to practice whatever religion they want, but it is not right to deny innocent and helpless people proper medical treatment. Sad.



  8. 108

    As anyone who's lived this experience can tell you, after such a loss families go on but never really totally recover.



  9. 109

    Listen you little dicked duck fuck, you make fun of this man, his family and lifestyle every chance you get. Now so you can make money off the extra clicks on this sagging desperate claim to fame blog, you want to offer John your sympathies for the loss of his child, a love you will never know? Let me speak on behalf of the Travolta's and offer you a big SHOVE IT UP YOUR FLABBY ASS.

    Scientologists believe that when an individual dies, they simply "drop the body" and become reincarnated into another soul. So turn that fucking frown upside down. All Jett did was "drop the body"…….may Xenu assist him to find one without moron Scientology parents! Anyway…..that's what those cold-hearted fucks told me when my grandfather died. Scientology also refuses to acknowlege autism and other biological mental disorders…….only in Hollyweird!



  11. 111

    I can't stand John Travolta, but I feel really bad for him and his family.

    For God's sake people….don't take your kids to the Bahamas! 1st Anna Nicole's son….and now Jett!



  12. 112

    I know, what's the deal here with the Bahamas, celebrities children and dying??? Creepy if you ask me!



  13. 113

    When a child of a celebrity dies it always amazes me how quick the vultures appear to pick over the bones. NOBODY but the Travolta's know his actual affliction, diagnosis or whatever the case may be, and that's exactly how it should be. To the pathetic people that feel the need air negative comments at a time like this, all I can say is I hope karma takes a Huge bite out of your asses. My thoughts and prayers are with the Travolta family for as long as they need them.

    .
    .
    CLEARLY THIS IS ONE OF THE SEVEREST CASES OF CHILD ABUSE IN THE ANNALS OF AMERICAN HISTORY!!!
    .
    .
    THE POOR LAD NEVER RECEIVED THE MEDICAL TREATMENT THAT WAS NECESSARY FOR HIS CONDITION AND HIS PARENTS NEED TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS UNTIMELY DEATH!!!
    .
    .
    LG BELIEVES THIS IS NOTHING SHORT OF MANSLAUGHTER–DOES ANYONE ELSE REMEMBER PEREZ'S POSTING MONTHS AGO DESCRIBING HOW THE BITCH WHORE DYKE BEARD OF A WIFE, KELLY, WOULD SCREAM AT THE
    NANNY "TAKE CARE OF IT!!!" WHEN THE ILL-FATED JETT'S BODY WAS SCREAMING FOR MEDICATION THAT SCIENTOLOGY FORBADE THE POOR LAD???
    .
    .
    .
    THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME SCIENTOLOGY HAS HAD BLOOD ON ITS HANDS–AND WON'T BE THE LAST!!!
    .
    MURDERERS!!!
    .

    wow that's so sad!

    What's up with this kawasaki disease lately? First Baylee, now Jett.



  16. 116

    So sad. But I can;t help thinking this was avoidable if the Travoltas were not a member of that crazy ass cult Scientology, which is notorious for being anti-psychology and anti-prescription drugs to treat mental and physical disorders regarding the brain. I am sure the Scientology upper eschelon is panicking and trying to spin this the best they can. IT will be interesting to see what TC says about this.



  17. 117

    Blame Scientology for the death of this child.

    The Travolta family did not provide adequate medical care because their cult does not believe in it.



  18. 118

    The Church of Scientology actively performs the exact same treatments on others who suffer from similar diseases. They are doing it right now, in this country. With our children. With our parents. With our siblings and friends.

    The loss of a child is the hardest thing in the world and I can't imagine the pain his parents are in right now, but as the parent of an Autistic child whose seizure meds are keeping her alive, I am forced to wonder what Scientology says about seizure disorders. Do they consider them thetan poisoning as well? Could this kid's life have been saved if he had been under the care of the type of neurologist the Travoltas can no doubt afford? With his parent's resources, Jett could have been a shining star of the Autism movement - proving what proper treatment can do. Now, so so sadly, he will be the story we parents of Autism have nightmares about.



  20. 120

    That is truly so so sad. I feel so sad for John, Kelly and Ella-Bleu.
    RIP Jett :) xxxxxx

    The bahamas is fucking haunted. That's where anna nicole smith's son died as well.



  22. 122

    god you people are evil his son just died now you attack him we are not fucking doctors how come you assholes come on here and say he's artistic like you knew him you are terrible people i pray for john and for people like you all



  23. 123

    Re: PrinceD
    Artistic? If you're going to call people names, learn to spell. Travolta's brother has gone on the record with several publications saying that Jett was Autistic and that scientology is what was keeping his brother from getting the child treatment. No one ever said that their misguided views of Autism means that they deserved for this to happen. No one deserves to lose a child.

  25. 125

    I didnt know he had a son either and why does it seem like everybody dies when they go to the Bahamas. This reminds me of Anna Nicole's son.



  26. 126

    May the Travolta family find peace and comfort among their family, friends and faith. A death of a child is the most difficult situation for any family. It must be so much worse for the famous. Unlike us, their grief will be plastered on all the gossip rags now and one day, they'll be caught off guard with the display of Jet's death being republished in connection with Autism or Kawasaki Fever.

    Medical information is wonderful to have at our fingertips, BUT how dare anyone tell me that I have to take some pill or do some exercise to get better. You don't get better; it's management and the side effects from the pills are even more likely to kill me or cause a stroke or seizure.

    If there is medical neglect, the courts step in immediately. The neglect would lie on the day to day care of the child and the supervising adult which in this case was the nanny. This was not the nanny's fault. THIS WAS A HORRIBLE ACCIDENT that could happen to you, your niece, your nephew, son, daughter, etc.

    SCIENTOLOGY DIDN'T KILL JETT.

    DON'T THROW STONES when you aren't the one swallowing the pills, feeling the grueling side effects daily, watching the child disappear into a haze, spending the monies to fund prescriptions, therapies, medical devices, etc. AND LIVING WITH THE STRESS OF WHAT IS YET TO COME!

    GOD BLESS JOHN, KELLY, AND ELLE BLEU. Find peace.



  27. 127

    I wonder if they even tried to revive him. I mean, what does Scientology say about resuscitation? That if you have a seizure, or stop breathing, or whatever, if you're strong enough, Xenu will pull you through? This kid could have had the best treatment for autism that LOTS o'money can buy, and instead, they chose to lock him away and make excuses. They had a sick kid, lots of us do…you get him help, you don't lock him away. Poor kid. Hope he's at peace now.



  28. 128

    thats so sad:( my heart goes out to them! and sadly, Brian Littrell's son Baylee just got diagnosed with the same disease…:(



  29. 129

    Sooooooo sad, he was so young. R.I.P Jett!



  30. 130

    My deepest regrets for the Travolta's during this time of loss. I can only say that I my family has experienced Kawasaki Disease first hand with our now 6yr old. It is heart related…my son was one of 4% who's heart would be affected by this disease. To my knowledge (which I have researched quite in depth) seizures do not apply as it seems to be advertised in relation to this misfortune. A heart attack, unfortunately would. Please be patient with the autopsy results as no matter what it will be, this young boy will not be brought back to us. Be kind during this time of loss.



  31. 131

    I couldn't believe all of the shit people were saying about the travoltas!! Oh how quick we are to judge people and it breaks my heart. They lost their son for Gods sake!!! I lose my faith in people more and more. For all of you that jumped to conclusions how dare you. It has been told now Jett suffered from grand mal seizures , and he was given depakote so the travoltas did seek medical help for there son. His dissabilities included not being able to speak well and some physical disabilities. Just because there celebreties dosn't mean the world needs to know every detail of there life. I don't blame them from shielding there son from this cruel world!!! The child died and look at all the jerks that come out straight up with attacts. Pray for these people and Jett and quit talking bad about them!!



  32. 132

    Any reason why one of the male nannies didn’t try to administer CPR or weren’t they trained for it? Too many unanswered questions that are being swept under the rug.



  33. 133

    It's so sad that Jett died, he is so young. I hope he'll rest in peace
