Travolta Extortion Suspect -- 'I Feel So Badly'

10/5/2009 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One of the people accused of attempting to extort John Travolta apparently felt guilty while she was trying to execute the plan.

Audio and video tapes from the police sting operation which targeted Pleasant Bridgewater and Tarino Lightbourne are being played in open court today.

In the tapes, Travolta's attorney can be heard telling the suspects that John couldn't pay the $25 million asking price because "John doesn't have that kind of bread ... not even lying around."

On another tape, Bridgewater can be heard telling John's lawyer, "I just want to get this over with ... I don't want to hear about it again ... I feel so badly about the whole thing."

Travolta claims the suspects threatened to release a "refusal of treatment" document John signed after his son Jett was found unconscious in The Bahamas last year.

Awwww!! Well, AT LEAST the parasitic, POS has a concious. SO comforting to know that she felt "bad" about what she was doing. Not bad enough to "walk away" from the whole hideous scheme, just bad enough to maybe lose a few nights of sleep at her posh vacation resort she would probably have been lounging at , had these two creeps actually pulled off this pathetic little scheme.

And obviously not bad enough to "come clean" even now. It's really disheartening to think that some human beings don't have a single redeamable quality about them & are pure slime at the core.

I do wonder why they would do this considering Travolta has a home on the island & am sure that many there love him & his family. What's the deal? Jealousy? Did he piss some people off there?

I can't believe John Travolta doesn't have $25 million lying around. Oh, I forgot, the Church of Scientology took all his money.

You know, it would be so heartbreaking to see your child suffer every day. And there comes a time when there are so many problems, that it may be kinder not to let him suffer anymore. They didn't kill him, and they obviously didn't let him die. That is very different than the boy dying, and accepting it. I don't believe that it was in THEIR best interest. I believe it was in the best interest of Jett....and completely unselfish. He had already passed. Chances are that IF they could of revived him, which they obviously could not, he would have had even further damage..... They were very unselfish and obviously loved their son so very much.
