This is one of those shocking items, the ones that make you stare in disbelief at what you just read. John Travolta’s and Kelly Preston’s oldest child, their 16-year-old son Jett, has died tragically while the family was vacationing in the Bahamas.
The police are still investigating, but it is thought that Jett, who has a history of seizures, walked into the bathroom and fell, perhaps hitting his head on the bathtub, according to AOL news. A caretaker of the family’s vacation home in the Bahamas found him, and he was rushed to the hospital by ambulance, where he was pronounced dead. The family, including Jett, Travolta, Preston, and their 8-year-old daughter, Ella Bleu, had arrived on Tuesday. With as sweet of a guy as Travolta has always been, this is just sad beyond words.
Heather Locklear is apparently having a better year than that, avoiding jail time. Arrested on DUI last September, it was later determined she had no alochol in her system at the time, but was charged with driving under the influence of prescription drugs. She pled guilty to a lesser offense, avoiding jail, and receiving a fine and three years probation, along with instructions to attend a driver’s education program. She did not appear in court. Maybe she’s still hungover from New Year’s.
Courtesy of a Hollywood Trivia Calendar by E!, here’s your trivia for today. Yesterday’s answer was Frankenchrist. It was the only one of the four to not be a real Frank Zappa album title. I was wrong, as I thought “Burnt Weenie Sandwich” was just too out there, even for a guy that named his kids Moon Unit and Dweezil.
