$20 Million Extortion Attempt Against Travolta

1/22/2009 1:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John TravoltaTMZ has confirmed Bahamian police are indeed investigating an alleged extortion plot against John Travolta, but it does not involve pictures of his dying son.

We're told several people have allegedly demanded $20 million from John and cops are on the hunt. We have now confirmed that the alleged extortion attempt does not involve pictures of Jett as he was dying. As for what the extortion attempt is about....no one will say.

UPDATE:
We've confirmed the alleged extortion is over the circumstances surrounding Jett's death, but we have no more specifics. And, we've learned, it was Travolta's reps who contacted cops and lodged the complaint.

We're now told by police sources they got the complaint approximately a week ago and their investigation will be concluded "very shortly."

Cops are on the hunt?

No, an army of SeaOrg drones are on the hunt. THEY can't be bargained with. THEY can't be reasoned with. THEY don't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. THEY absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are DEAD.

I wonder if there are more pics of him kissing the "manny". While I am a fan, I was shocked to see him kiss the guy on the lips as he was boarding a plane. Kinda gay.

It's a giant cover up by Travolta and the cops about what really happened to his son. Major hush money was spent. Pure evil is at work here. Godless people and sinful beliefs. Corruption and blasphemy.

Travolta is gay? Thats like finding out Tom Cruise is gay or Clay Aiken or Boy George or George Michale or ....

Battlefield Earth 2 will in theaters soon. As soon as I remove the last of these pesky Body Thetans. They get so clingy - sort of like my wife when she is having her special monthly visitor.

THE DEATH OF A CHILD IS A HORRIBLE THING. THESE PEOPLE HAVE HARDLY HAD A MOMENT TO RECOVER FROM THEIR DEEPEST GREIF. STOP SPECULATING AND GIVE THEM SOME TIME TO COPE WITH THEIR SON'S DEATH. IF YOU ARE ANY KIND OF DECENT HUMAN BEING YOU CAN PROBABLY DO THIS.

I can't wait for the story. That takes a sick person to do that.

I'm still pushing the LIFE GEM idea though. They should turn him into a gem stone of his favorite color.

Well, if it is true that John Travolta is gay? why would Kelly Preston be with him? and she "obviously" had his children, so what., other than money, would be in it for her? she already has money, she is an actress, why would she need HIS money....sometimes people on these boards just LOOK for conspiracy theories and "hidden truths" where there are NONE
