OMG!!! people. Get a grip. This family has lost a beloved son. I know the pain, of loss of a child. It is unimaginable. Every day I am sure the Travolta's feel this horrible pain, regardless of how or why Jett Travolta died. How can anyone judge on pure speculations?, What is so sad about this story, is the sensationalism that always surrounds celebreties and their families, without respect to their grief. Whatever was the reason for this alleged extortion will come to light in the upcoming proceedings of a righteous judicial hearing. No one, in the Bahamas or the USA, can say which way this will be finalized. However, I do want to mention to all of the readers, viewers, and interested parties, to please allow this family to grieve, make forward movements to the memory of Jett, and allow them to get on with their lives without any kind of speculative and distasteful accusations about John Travolta whom I saw in the news, every time, holding Jett's hand as if to protect him from the harms of publicilty. Please, let the Travolta's alone, and stop this warring of words, that to me seem as senseless as the tragic death of a 16 year old boy. Let everyone reading this send a prayer of hope to the family left behind. SHALOM Jamie Dakis

Guys something stinks here. It is no way in hell I believe that Travolta was being extorted for wanting to fly his kid to Florida. I believe that kid had an injury that was very suspicious -- either John knocked the hell out of him causing a damaging injury or he was left alone and fell and hurt himself severely. The body was cremated so the evidence would be gone from furture investigation.. I believe these so-called blackmailers have photos of the injured Jett and that photo does not agree with this media-spin story that the Travoltas are trying to feed the public. Jett died suspiciously and if the Travoltas were not rich and famous they would be investigated. I really think John knocked the hell out of the kid in fight with him. Things like this happen with Autistic kids.

Please wait for all the facts before you pass judgement on this honorable woman. When the truth comes out she will be vindicated and thus you will see that it is not Ms. Bridgewater, but the Travoltas themselves that had something to hide. Keep the hateful and nasty comments for someone you don't know to yourselves, it is not needed. This is a woman of God and integrity and she will be cleared when the true story is told. The first question that needs to be asked and answered is What REALLY happened to Jett Travolta? Until that is truthfully answered, many will suffer unjustly.

Praying for you Sen. Bridgewater

What amazes me in this whole situation is that every media outlet has neglected to inform their audiences that this woman is a respected attorney and was acting on behalf of a client.

I doubt its anything more than the press and the police are saying it is. If as posters are saying, the culprits had incriminating evidence in their possession worth 25 million dollars, would JT want that turned over to police and then exposed in a public trial for the world press to feed on? If he was so eager to hide something, why would he permit an official and public investigation?

Zimmerman, I would have you to know that there are countless Bahamian attorneys who have all graduated from top law schools in London, England. I would also have you to know that the British legal system is one of the oldest sytems in the world, far more superior than that of the United States of America! Consequently, Americans cannot practice law in England nor the Bahamas as they would have to go back to school in order to do so!

i was there and i do think something is not as it seems i am looking at what is being said and the fact that this lady did know something but it seems there is more than what meets the eye.
i also saw that the media has blown this matter beyond now just the matter with the travlotas but now making it a country divide on poltical lines.
and in my oinon i do believe the family is iding something from the public
but we will see

$cientology brainwashes people into suggesting that children can be DEGRADED BEINGS who bring on their own physical and psychological problems and have to cure themselves of the evil BODY THETANS inside of them.

People in the Bahamas watch your back! The Cult of $cientology is very dangerous and are very experienced with extortion and character defamation.

John Travolta is an important asset to $cientology that David Miscavige will do whatever it takes to keep. Despite the tragic loss of his son, Jett, $cientology management's "handling" of the Travolta’s will see to it that they stay "in."

How many hours was Jett dead before he was found?
Where is the OTHER NANNY, known only as "Eli"?
What do we NOT KNOW THAT IS WORTH $20 MILLION?

There are many other suspicious deaths surrounding this dangerous greedy cult created by L. Ron Hubbard, a very bad science fiction writer…

RIP Jett, God Bless You!

What in the world did these people supposedly know that Travolta did not want leaked? Another suspicious $cientology death. When is the government going to stop this crime syndicate as they did with the Mafia? "Religion" my ass. The cult cloaked itself in religion so it could operate as a criminal enterprise.

Write your representatives and demand this dangerous cult's tax exempt status be revoked. 60 years of destroying families, scamming people out of millions and deadly quackery all for the sake of greed is enough.

People who live in glass houses really should not throw stones!
Yes if extortion was attempted it is wrong and should be dealt with. But the unfair characterization of the Bahamas and Its people by the American media is just unbelievable. Isn't there a Senate seat for sale on Ebay ...oh and isn't there an unjustified war happening as we speak ...and who was Monica sucking off IN THE WHITE HOUSE?????? oh I know the F..ing PRESIDENT for God sakes...but isn't theUSA still the land of the free? a beautiful country with great people? So please don't act all saintly. Every nation, every government, every family has its own set of issues.
How dare the media act like this is the sin of all sins???? This case is far from over but they have already handed down sentance on the Bahamas. Why aren't they questionion John and Kelly's role in all of this. Jett was more than autistic..he was sick..very sick and they pretended that there was nothing wrong with him, not getting him proper treatment. The Bahamas didn't kill anna(died in Florida USA), her son danny (drug overdose)or Jett (scientology -condition ignored and denied conventional medical treatment ). In each case their own actions led to thier deaths...it just happend to be in the Bahamas.
The Bahamas is and will always be a beautiful place with beautiful people.
