Yesterday, police in the Bahamas said that the 16-year-old son of actors John Travolta and Kelly Preston was found unconscious in a hotel room, after apparently having a seizure and hitting his head on a bathtub. The hospital was unable to revive Jett Travolta, who had, the Post reports, "a long history of seizures and other medical problems, including complications resulting from Kawasaki disease, a rare lymph-node disorder." People adds that Preston blamed household chemicals on Jett's health issues and "credited a detoxification program" based on Scientology found L. Ron Hubbard's writings for helping. Police said that Jett was last seen going into the bathroom on January 1, but wasn't found until yesterday by his nanny—prompting Travolta's lawyers to speak out and disagree with that version of events. They told TMZ "it appears Jett's fatal injury was the result of hitting his head on the bathtub, toilet seat, or both" and "say the intimation that Jett went undiscovered for hours is absolutely false." An autopsy will be performed and then the body will be flown to Florida for burial; a lawyer said Travolta and Preston's pain is "unimaginable and unquantifiable."
