Jury selected in Bahamas for John Travolta extortion trial

John Travolta John Travolta is believed to have flown to the Bahamas to take the stand against two people accused of trying to extort $US25 million from the movie star following his son Jett’s death in January.

Travolta is on a list of 14 witnesses against the defendants — a former Bahamas senator and an ambulance driver — who allegedly threatened to release a document related to the treatment of his chronically ill son Jett.

His testimony would mark a break from the low profile that Travolta and his wife, actress Kelly Preston, have kept since their 16-year-old son died from a seizure at a family vacation home on the Grand Bahama island on January 2.

Details in plot to extort money from John Travolta revealed

John Travolta Police have confirmed the alleged plot to extort money from actor John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston included a request for $25 million so that a supposedly ‘damaging’ document would not be made public.

It has been suggested the alleged culprits were in possession of pictures of Jett in the moments before and after he died. But the Senior Assistant Commissioner of Police said this is “incorrect.”

He said the complaint alleges the conspirators approached the Travoltas with a document, that if released, would prove damaging to the Travoltas.

Death certificate: Jett Travolate killed by seizure

Jett Travolta Police will question Travolta, 54, and Preston, 46 about their son’s medication as part of routine inquiries into his death, the Daily Star reported.

Jett had been diagnosed with Kawasaki Syndrome, a vascular illness that leads to inflamed blood vessels, and his parents had always denied that he suffered from autism, despite the concerns of Travolta’s brother Joey, an autism campaigner.

Scientology-watchers have openly wondered whether the cult’s quackery may have contributed to Jett’s death.

Scientology The tragic death of Jett Travolta has once again turned the spotlights on the insane medical claims of Scientology — the cult his parents, John Travolta and Kelly Preston, are deeply involved in.

John Travolta and son Jett Kelly Preston, Travolta’s wife, has said that Jett became very sick when he was 2 years old and was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease, an illness that leads to inflammation of the blood vessels in young children.

She blamed household cleaners and fertilizers, and said that a detoxification program based on teachings from the Church of Scientology helped improve his health, according to People magazine.
