Travolta Will Testify in Extortion Case

9/19/2009 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has confirmed John Travolta will testify next week at the extortion trial involving the death of his son, Jett.

Travolta will travel to the Bahamas to testify on behalf of the prosecution. Paramedic Tarino Lightbourne and former politician Pleasant Bridgewater allegedly demanded $25 million in return for not going public with a document which authorized paramedics to take 16-year-old Jett to a hospital via ambulance after suffering a massive seizure.

We're told Travolta and wife Kelly Preston are outraged by the alleged extortion plot which authorities say was concocted shortly after Jett's death.

Miranda, if that's true, then that's F'ed up. Do you have any sources? This could be a TMZ scoop.

Miranda doesn't need any sources. It's a known fact that the Travoltas are Scientologists. If they had actually sought treatment for their son to begin with he may not be dead. Suck me if you don't like this post.

Not sources that they are Scientologists. Sources that they weren't giving him anti-seizure meds.

There is no Extortion, just any other ambulance going to the hospital... reporters are going to report,, the ambulance drivers have the 411,, John Travolta corner the driver asked him how much $$$$$$$$ to keep quite... then John Travolta didnt want to pay up..

Anyone that would try to extort, let alone from the pain of parents losing a child should get an extreme prison sentence. They should get chain gang and hard labor so they can exploit big rocks to make little rocks.

18. I don't mean to sound insensitive, however, the fact of the matter is, that as sad as this tragic death is..what is EVEN SADDER is the fact that IF Travolta and his wife, were not into the cult "religion" of SCIENTOLOGY (where they believe in aliens among other incredible nonsense that simply would blow your minds) then they woudl have had their son Jett on ANTI-SEIZURE medication (as he shoudl have been all along) and he then would NOT have died. That is a fact. They have attempted to say his body didn't agree with the meds however all the doctors have said there are HUNDREDS of them to try and choose from. tHE tRAVOLTAS DO not believe in medication - period. pERHAPS THEY WILL WAKE UP AND GET OUT OF THAT crazy cult so that if their daughter ever needs medical attention she will at least get it. The Travolta's didn't even have a nurse or doctor watching their son who woudl seizures weekly..They had two FRIENDS of theirs (PAID friends I might add) to tend to Jett's needs. Now for a guy with MILLIONS in the bank don't you find that adsurd??? This boy had AUTISM, which he denied to the world (because Scientology doesn't "accept" such diagnosis) yet in the court papers he admits his son had autism. Sad - yes but the fcat still remains, Jett Travolta woudl be alive today had it not been for his brainwashed parents, John & Kelly.

Every single time you post, it's something you know NOTHING about, and you tend to ramble; can't spell, and forming a sentence seems a toughie for you, too. What this family chose to do or not to do is NONE of your business, and I'm sure you don't have the inside scoop on a thing. You weren't there...you don't know this family...and you CERTAINLY sound like you might be a tad insane, so STFU! and let this family grieve without all your boring and mundane nonsense.

there are no specific sources he didnt have medication, but scienetologists do no believe in medication like that (remember the tom cruise/brooke shield incident?) so it was likely that jett was not on anything for the seizures.

Thank you Alicia! As for Don.....LOSER.

As for the "source" as to how it is a known factthat Jett was NOT on medication at the time of his death...the "SOURCE"...is from John Travolta HIMSELF..He said "oh, we tried it...didn't like it". What Travolta meant was "we tried it for 10 minutes MAYYBE..but Scientology has made my wife Kelly and I nuts, so we stopped all meds and our poor son tragically died"

Ps..Don............what's it like to be such a pathertic DUFUF that most people must LOATHE???????????????????????

lol, the split-personalities are both out and doing well today, I see! And a 'lawyer' usually can um....spell and form sentences, so I'm guessing your webtv keys are all screwed-up from so much use...you're tapped into your neighbors' internet (at the trailer park), and your government check is late so you and aka/Alicia/Sybil are all a bit pizzed off today. Oh, and you're welcome, by the way, for my full-time job keeping you and your litter of inbreds. It's always the ones like you and your little 'friends in your head' who come on her claiming to know ALL...and be lawyers, doctors, blah, blah, blah...yeah, keep telling yourself that. It's super easy to hit that nerve in those of you who are unstable; ever notice that?

Oh yes, that's right...you're a 'lawyer'...and you behave as someone whom the warden is giving you a bit of 'computer time' today since you've been such a 'good girl' picking up trash around the prison yard. It's the braggarts and delusional who sit back and 'lie' about their careers...incomes...'wonderful lives and families'...that are the sad and meek who wear adult diapers. You're a very bitter and disgusting excuse for a human being, so take your lies and make-believe life and shove it into the 3rd fold of your bowel. No one on here believe a word of what you type, so try and slip back into reality...why not do something constructive, like say...rotate the tires that are holding your roof on. That'd be a great way to get some of your frustrations out, don't you think? NUTJOB!
