A “heartbroken” John Travolta has spoken out for the first time since the death of his teenage son while on a family holiday in the Bahamas on Friday.
Jett Travolta, the 16-year-old son of the American star of Saturday Night Fever and Grease, and his actress wife Kelly Preston, died after hitting his head in the bath at the family’s holiday home on Grand Bahama. He was discovered by a nanny on Friday morning around 10am and his movie star father had desperately tried in vain to resuscitate him.
“We are heartbroken that our time with him was so brief. We will cherish the time we had with him for the rest of our lives,” Mr Travolta and Ms Preston, who also have an eight-year-old daughter Ella Bleu, said in a statement on Mr Travolta’s website.
“Jett was the most wonderful son that two parents could ever ask for and lit up the lives of everyone he encountered.
Condolence to Travolta family…
