John Travolta Takes To The Stand In Extortion Trial

Actor John Travolta and wife, Kelly Preston, have arrived in the Bahamas to testify in the trial of locals who allegedly attempted to extort $25 million from the actor as a result of his son’s death in January.

Taking to the stand, Travolta grew emotional as he recounted events that took place on the day of Jett Travolta’s passing. The movie star confirmed on the stand that his son was autistic and was afflicted with a seizure disorder.

The basis of the purported blackmail is a refusal-to-transport document allegedly signed by Travolta with trial expected to take three weeks long.
