John Travolta Says Scientologists Were With Him "Every Day" After Son's Death

Travolta Says Scientologists Were With Him

In a new interview, actor John Travolta reveals Scientology was the thing that helped him get through the death of his son Jett in 2009. He told The Telegraph members of the church were with him "every day" after his teenage son's death - even traveling with him. Travolta said, " ... for a solid two years it was like that. It was only in the second year that I started to take a break of a day or two just to see how I was doing on my own."

Travolta has made headlines in the past for reportedly revealing Jett did have autism - a disorder that Scientology has reportedly denied exists. But both Travolta and wife Kelly Preston maintain their support of the church - in 2011 she, too, credited it for helping her get through Jett's death.

Helpful hint.....It's not really a "church."

you're right - it's a cult.

It is a very sad thing to lose a child. I feel bad for both parents. No grown adult needs "company" from the church ---any church---24/7 for two years.

Scientology loves his money I'm sure. And to practice a "religion" that denies Autism exists while having a son with Autism is beyond stupid.

That's just plain creepy. I guess they wanted to make sure that Travolta didn't have any "ideas" that would remove him and his wallet away from the cult. After two years, I guess they figured they were ok.

Maybe they were afraid some other church would get a hold of his wallet in his grief.

Regardless of the fact that he needed help and guidance to get him through a terrible
loss, why has he not focused on helping other children stricken with the Autism spectrum.
The web site he started in the name of his son accepts donations and contributes to everything
except Autism research or help for other families. Way to go JT.
