Details in Mystery Travolta Extortion Doc

1/27/2009 9:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John Travolta & Jett TravoltaWe've now gotten to the bottom of the mystery document that was the basis for the alleged extortion plot in the John Travolta case.

Sources connected with the investigation tell us John Travolta told EMT workers he wanted to fly his son to Florida rather than drive by ambulance to the hospital ... which was 45 minutes away.

There was a disagreement over which course would be better. John felt initially it might take the same amount of time to get his son to Florida where he might get better care.

The document at issue would have released emergency services from any liability if Travolta elected the Florida route.

In the end John realized the hospital was Jett's best hope.

Scientology trolls are all over this blog. Scientology wants to clear the planet of degraded beings, they hold all authority but David Mscaviage and his thugs in contempt. God knows what Travolta was trying to hide by getting the poor kid to Florida. They are building new centers with new bizarre equipment to enhance their supposedly super human abilities, so who knows what they are up to. Scientology is not a religion, it's more like a para-military movement with it's own government and it's own laws. Scientology needs to abide by the rule of law, not have secret voyages out to sea (Freewinds) where they could be torturing people for all we know. Another Scientologist, David Gaiman, writer Neil Gaiman's father actually experimented on Russian children exposed to Chernobyl radiation, applying the Scientology purification run down of extreme heat and massive vitamin doses until the kids broke out in sores and the Russian authorities stopped them. Scientologists are ruthless and will stop at nothing to gain power.The Travolta's are trapped in this cult and there is no way to know what the Scientologists hold over them, whatever it is... it is not good.

If your child is dying on the bathroom floor, I don't care WHERE you are....you take that child to the nearest hospital!! I can't believe Travolta wanted to load the kid on an airplane and FLY him to Florida!! Something is not right with this story and despite people saying Scientology had nothing to do with it, I'd bet my last dollar he wanted to take that kid to a Scientology physician. Probably one he had on his payroll...... poor kid.

John Travolta was right ! He could have flow his child to the hospital in Florida and saved his life.
It took 45 min. to get to the hospital in the Bahamas ?

What is the Extortion about?

I agree sandbox. Who would have even think to get in a plane and FLY their kid somewhere? Good Lord, just get him in the ambulance and go. My opinion, and I'm entitled to it, is that he did not want a non-Scio doctor to treat him. It's happened before, with deadly results.

Confused at a time when his son was dying and they thought that was exploitable? The Travolta's have always been a close and respectable family dispite their fame.The Bahamas is off of my list of places to visit FOREVER!

Hey, John maybe you should have just put him in the bathroom and steamed the sickness out of him, you know like your crazy church does in their detox to cure mental health diseases

something STINKS about this. from what we've heard, jett was unresponsive and presumed dead at the scene (as far as i remember, someone correct me). the problem is, if jett was deceased at the scene, why would this even come up? if, in fact, jett had a week pulse or was barely alive, the matter was an EMERGENCY. there should have been NO thought to fire up a plane and fly an hour away and, ESPECIALLY, no debate that requires paperwork and a signature! something is up, tmz, something is up!!!

HAVE WE AS AMERICANS NOTHING BETTER TO DO THAN TO TALK ABOUT A FAMILY THAT'S GOING THROUGH THE MOST UNIMAGINABLE PAIN ANY PARENT CAN EXPERIENCE? WHO ARE WE TO HAVE AN OPINION, THE TRUTH IS NOBODY KNOWS HOW TO REACT WHEN A TRAGEDY LIKE THIS KNOCKS ON YOUR DOOR. AND THESE PEOPLE WHO COULD EVEN THINK OF TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE DEATH OF A CHILD TO MAKE PROFIT HAVE NO HEART. AS A MOTHER OF 2 CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS AND AS A PARENT PERIOD MY HEART GOES OUT TO THE TRAVOLTA FAMILY MAY GOD GIVE YOU THE STRENGH TO GO ON. GOD BLESS YOU!

EXACTLY Right! If you watched TomCruise's crazy Scientology recruitement video from Gawker, He said it himself..."It's not like anyone else can help! You're the ONLY one that can do anything about it" etc...

John wanted to make sure only a Scientologist had access to his son. He wanted to make sure his son death was handled properly. This is NOT the first time the clams have staged death scenes, and manipulated them. John and the rest of his cult are being disgusting. Poor Jett never had a chance being born into this cult family.

IF that's true, that's disgusting. IF that's true, why would you take the time to fly to the states rather than have close-by medical attention?

IF that's true, then why did they even take their special needs son out of the country?

I'm withholding judgment because we don't know all the facts. But I'm thinking Scientology plays a big factor here. Perhaps the Travolta's wanted to get him to a Scientology "place" to "CURE" him?

Something is very fishy...
