John Travolta's 16-Year-Old Son Dead

 

John Travolta's oldest child has died after falling ill and hitting his head at the family's vacation home in the Bahamas. 16-year-old Jett was rushed via ambulance to a Freeport hospital after being found unconscious in a bathroom by a caretaker.

According to the police statement, Jett was last seen going into the bathroom on Thursday and has been known to have seizures in the past. Police spokeswoman Loretta Mackey said Jett apparently hit his head on the bathtub.

Rand Memorial Hospital, the hospital where Jett was rushed, has released no further information due to privacy concerns. Police are currently planning an autopsy in order to determine the cause of death.

  Wow Already  
 
A 16 year old dies and it is joke time because his father is in the same religious group that Tom Cruise is huh? A little FYI going on John and his wife Kelly had taken Jet to a Dr. He was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease when he was very young and did take medication for it (gasp!) http://www.mayoclinic.com/...

You want to have your pissing party on Scientology go at it, I don't care for it myself personally. Don't do it at the expense of a kid that died and 2 parent's and a sister that are grieving though FFS.

  I do it  
 
I do it because no matter what I do after his death, he already went back to his alien form and won't come back on Earth.

or at least someone should stick a rocket up your ... for this disgusting crap of yours.

  Nothing to do with religion  
 
This guy Pakistani is just in full-blown asshole troll mode for the new year. I have a feeling he won't be with us for long.

  Just small reference not everyone will catch  
 
His son seems to be named after a main character in the series "Mission Earth", the characters name jettero heller.

  True Captain  
 
There is a time and a place for everything and a child's death just does't seem like a proper story to debate other things. And that certain someone seems to be even worse on other stories.

  Remember  
 
Stuff like this happens every day. You can't get complacent or else you'll just slip and die some day in the bathroom. Safety is a everyday type of thing, so please, for your own sake and ours (when concerned with voting), be aware of your surroundings.

  I wonder...  
 
...if you would all be so quick to ridicule the death of a Christian's son? Because you do realie that Christianity and Scientology are an unfounded as each other don't you?
 
  by: barryriley   01/03/2009 11:12 AM     
  @Pakistani  
 
I take it from your other posts you're a Muslim.

Well I must say it's a tough choice between a ridiculous unfounded religion that believes in a man called Zenu and a religion which worships a guy known for having sex with 14 yar old girls.
 
  by: barryriley   01/03/2009 11:18 AM     
  Wait...  
 
The 16 year old is the one who died here.

Why is Scientology being brought up. Was the kid a devout Scientologist? Did he even give a damn? Or are all of you just backing this crap because of who his father is?

You wield a sharp sword, brother.

Carry on.

  @ Pakistani  
 
So let me get you right you on this, you have four entire nations in your list of hate and these are the Irish Scots, Russians and plus the British, well for your information on how you feel I can tell you this to begin with you saying British
You will be going to space if you carry on like this, with that rocket up your nether regions; you are not funny and appear to me right now as a heartless fool. Don’t mess here, and expect to be respected.

@ Luc
Yes, maybe so, but this is a life we are talking about here, so not very interesting! Not right now, to me anyway. These are a family suffering the most serious of blows!

I fogot to add that the Irish, Scotish Welsh and the English are all Britih!

I hope he was medicated properly too chadatcondonethis, what with scientologies belief about the pharmaceutical industry.

Oh a grats on those of you sinking to Pakistani's level. You sure showed him.

  @Pakistani  
 
go suck a lemon. to echo others' views i can't believe the first thing you do when you read about something like this is crack a wise joke at someone's beliefs. i mean that is truly heartless. the first thing i thought of too when i saw john travolta was scientology. but then i read 16 year-old son dead and you know what? i felt sad inside and sorry for him. i mean for crying out loud the man's lost his son! what's wrong with you??

@Barryriley:
I don't think cracking about islam is particularly helpful either. I thought it was more to do with criticising a lack of humanity than pulling up how all religions are stupid anyway (it's the 21st century...) however, in the spirit of christmas, here's a link for you to vent with: http://www.faithfreedom.org

actually, Mohammed was over 50 and his wife was 9 when their marriage was consummated. So it's actually worse than you thought.

@captainJane..

-------------------------------------------

Just a quick bit of clarity here, not really an argument but I'm Irish so I have to point it out :-)

There is only one province on the island of Ireland that is part of the United Kingdom, and that is Northern Ireland. South of that border, there are 26 counties that make up the "Republic of Ireland", with a population around 4,000,000. It's a 100% independent state, not part of Britain, citizens there are Irish citizens, not British, no oath is sworn to a foreign King or Queen etc.

@Every1, It's already been echoed but the death of a 16 year old, regardless of who his parents were, is not a ticket for you to crack jokes based on his/her parents' beliefs. If his son died observing some Scientology ritual, you might have a point for a debate, but for those of you who just want to show everyone how heartless you are, G.F.Y.!!

Irish, Northern Irish - you're all the same!

I'm all for one united country...









Under british rule :)

When the aliens return and elect me Supreme Chief Gazootie For Life I intend to take care of everybody. Once.

  @Pakistani  
 
I normally won't side with a Scientologist in this case it is Luana1980 (welcome back). But I would say in a much more conservative tone that what you said was a little uneducated. Before you ask I have read quite alot of Tech(Scientology texts).

But anyway we should not focus on his sons beliefs as I think his son did not understand them. But we should remember another child has died before their parents and that should never happen

Actually, the son suffered from Kawasaki Disease, not Hashimoto's Disease.

  I have to admit...  
 
@ dook.

The Dela is correct it is only the north, what fools to allow that in the first place, I am moving to the south of Ireland I despise the British government.


AAnd as far as I know this has not changed!
 
  by: captainJane     01/04/2009 01:41 AM     
  Whoa!!!  
 
Did anyone else noticed our dear Pakistani succeeded in trolling Luana1980? As in making him/her post something on the subject and not scientologist propaganda. Goes to show how good of a troll he is.

Whether or not John Travolta is a nut job, the passing of his son is tragic and the basic decency still applies to him.
 
  by: Ryuken   01/04/2009 02:16 AM     
  @JonSmith  
 
Thank you for correcting me, it was quite late at night here and I was wrong.

My mind was more on those that had to jump on the kid for his parents beliefs than the fact he died. I am so glad I am not famous so if goddess forbid something happens to my daughters the rabid pack of assholes won't come after them.
 
  by: TaraB     01/04/2009 03:18 AM     
  @captainJane  
 
haha i know he's correct... i was telling him that i think the whole country should come under British rule...

"haha i know he's correct... i was telling him that i think the whole country should come under British rule..."

Couldn't manage it for 800 years, you can spend 800 more trying if you want ;-) But no seriously, Britain is in trouble, especially with what's been happening in Scottish politics, and with power-sharing assembly in Northern Ireland. I don't really have an opinion on it to be honest, I live for today, and no British person has ever harmed me or threatened me as long as I've been alive.

last message was to dook, not hook ;-)

  John Travolta  
 
I didn't think he was a Scientologist anymore. I thought he quit the religion so he could play the fat lady in Hairspray.

And @barryriley
"I wonder...
...if you would all be so quick to ridicule the death of a Christian's son? Because you do realie that Christianity and Scientology are an unfounded as each other don't you?"

This is ShortNews. Everyone ridicules the death of anyone, any age, any anything on this website. Innocent man dies, let the jokes roll.

I think its pretty weak.
