What's this all about???

This morning, the charges against Tarino Lightbourne and Pleasant Bridgewater, the two men who were allegedly trying to get millions from John Travolta soon after the tragic death of his son Jett, were dropped.

A judge in the Bahamas complied with the request of John himself to free the men of all extortion charges. Sources say that plea baragins for the defendants were in the works for serveral weeks, but the news traveling from the islands say that case has just been closed.

But why John? Why would you let these heartless a-holes walk away free and clear? We're all for moving on and rebuilding a life, but these guys should pay for the pain they have caused you! What gives???

UPDATE: Chief Counsel in the Office of the Attorney General, Neil Braithwaite, released this statement outside the courthouse in the Bahamas shortly after the charges were dropped:

"The defendants have been discharged. Mr. Travolta is no longer interested in pursuing the matter because it has caused his family great emotional distress."

Man In Extortion Claim Says John Travolta "Duped" Him

More dramz for John Travolta!

Ex-ambulance driver Tarino Lightbourne, who allegedly tried to exort $25 million from the actor after the death of his son Jett, is now claiming that Travolta "betrayed" him after they had an "agreement" that all charges would be dropped.

According to Lightbourne, he and Travolta's lawyers struck a deal, stating that if Lightbourne stayed away from the media, all charges would be dropped against him.

However, the retrial is set to begin this coming Monday in Nassau and now Lighbtbourne says he's been "duped."

He adds, "We had an agreement. I feel betrayed by Mr. Travolta. We took his word for it. Now it's all over the newspapers, the press, the Internet
and we're hearing all kind of things."

Meanwhile, Travolta's attorneys say that they met with Lightbourne, but made no guarantee that they would drop the charges.

Hmm, it's hard to believe someone who tried to extort money.

What do U think?
