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.

I always felt that Mr. Lightbourne was in serious trouble
when he gave the Interview to one of the major news shows.
When he said Mr. Travolta lifted his head and said "Help me God", as his son was dying. I thought then he would never be allowed to give another interview. Not knowing, he told the world that John
(poster boy for scientology) asked for God's help in his moment of need. I just hope this is not a persecution. 1st-pics then no pics? Be true to yourself John.. I have faith in you.
