Travolta Allegedly Extorted Over Jett Pics

1/22/2009 12:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It looks like there may be something to the story that John Travolta is the victim of an alleged extortion attempt.

The story goes ... Travolta was contacted by several people who claim they had pictures of Jett Travolta as he was dying and that they would sell the pics to the highest bidder unless Travolta anted up first.

A Bahamian official told us Travolta's lawyers have contacted the government complaining of the alleged plot.

An investigation is ongoing.

Put them all in jail - the extortionists and the purchasers. There are so many beautiful photos of John and his son that just make your heart ache for him and his family. We don't need to mix up the memories for them by any media trash.

Maybe the pictures show PROOF that Jett did NOT die the way the Travoltas have spun his death.

Riddle me this Batman.... If John was reported to have been IN the ambulance with Jett on the way to the hospital (which he was pronounced DOA), how would anyone have been able to take any pictures of him IN the ambulance?? Yeah.

Point being, the cult of scientology as put their best spin control surrounding Jett's death. Just google the deaths of scientologists and educate yourselves. Maybe they're worried that the photo shows that there was indeed a coverup and they have proof.

Based on the cult's teachings, Jett was defective. Johns' been quoted as saying he wanted to try for a son, so his perfect daughter could have a brother. In almost all his interviews, John has conveniently left out the fact that he already had a son. In scientology, autism does not exist, you just need to take more vitamins and get more auditing sessions, the best money could buy. Tom Cruise is quoted as saying that these sessions cured his dyslexia. Yeah, right.

Poor Jett never had a chance being born into that family. Thank god at least now he is at peace, and not hidden away in his basement anymore with the two "caretaker/photographers" that were slated to take care of him while John's perfect family lived upstairs.
