John Travolta

John Travolta and Kelly Preston may be still dealing with the fact that their son, Jett, died from a “seizure disorder,” but that hasn’t stopped two individuals from launching an extortion scheme against them. A Bahamian newspaper reported on Monday that two people are being questioned, one believed to be a politician, about a plot to fleece the grieving couple. Travolta’s lawyers issued this statement:

“Regrettably in a time of such terrible grief, there are often a few individuals who attempt to make false claims in hopes of making millions of dollars,” their statement read, according to the Jacksonville Florida Times-Union. “We will never let that happen.”

They probably took secret photos of Travolta doing things like prancing around in a speedo and having his male nanny apply sunscreen to his body at night. Well, guess what Mr. Criminal Masterminds. Everyone knows Travolta is gay. You fools!
