We’re sad to report that John Travolta’s son has passed away at just 16 from a seizure:
The 16-year-old son of actors John Travolta and Kelly Preston died Friday morning after suffering a seizure while vacationing with his family in the Bahamas, Travolta’s attorney told CNN.
“At this point, we know that John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s only son, Jett, had a seizure at around 10 a.m. this morning,” attorney Michael Ossi said. “All attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.”
The boy hit his head after the seizure, but the exact cause of death is not known, Ossi said. An autopsy will be conducted Monday. His body will be transferred to Ocala, Florida, for burial, he said.
Jett’s death “was completely out of the blue,” he said. “John and Kelly are happy when their children are happy. This is the worst day of John’s life.” Video Watch John Travolta and son Jett in Paris »
The Travoltas also have a daughter, Ella, 8.
Bahamian police said a caretaker at the West End resort where the Travoltas were vacationing found the teenager unconscious in the bathroom. Jett Travolta was taken by ambulance to Rand Memorial Hospital in Freeport and was pronounced dead on arrival, police said.
That’s tragic, ya’ll. We just wanted to send a quick shot out to the Travolta family to let them know we’re sorry for their loss. R.I.P. to the big homie, Jett.
