He is married to actress Kelly Preston and has two children: Jett and Ella Bleu.
Actually, I should say had. John and his family were on holiday at the Bahamas when on January 02nd 2009, less than 48 hours after the year 2009 started, his son Jett, 16 – that sucks – had a seizure, hit his head in a bathtub and died.
The cause of death is still unknown. John Travolta and Kelly Preston always maintained that their son suffered from Kawasaki disease due to strong chemicals used to clean carpets while others argue that Jett suffered from autism, a mental disorder not recognized by Scientology.
An autopsy is scheduled to be performed Monday morning to find the cause of death.
