John Travolta and Kelly Preston are facing an extortion plot over their son Jett’s death. More accurately, John and Kelly are facing an extortion plot in order to keep pictures of their son in the ambulance from hitting the press. How incredibly sad and disgusting!
More pictures after the disgust…
The news broke yesterday that the Travolta’s had gone to the police with the alleged crime. It turns out, an EMT worker with the ambulance company and a local politician are both in the crackpot scheme to get a million dollars. This is what the Daily Mail says:
The extortion plot is believed to revolve around a photograph of Jett as he lay in the back of an ambulance. It is understood to have been taken on a mobile phone.
The alleged blackmailers are thought to have made contact with Travolta and his Florida based lawyers Michael Ossi and Howard Butler.
Source close to the lawyers said Travolta was asked for money to keep the photograph from being sold.
The lawyers, who have represented Travolta for a number of years,flew to the Bahamas over the weekend from their office in Jacksonville, Florida.
A source close to Ossi revealed they met with the alleged extortionist and later contacted police.
That’s just disgusting. A child died and these people were more concerned with taking pictures because they might get money. Money over a child’s death. Sick.
