John Travolta Reveals He Had Two Scientology Handlers With Him For Two Years After Son Jett's Death

Feb 13, 2014 10:40 AM


Wonder if they gave him massages too?

John Travolta has revealed that after his son Jett died in 2009 he was assigned two full-time handlers by the Church of Scientology who stayed by his side nearly 24/7 for over two years.

The 59-year-old actor told the UK’s Telegraph:

    “They were with me every day after Jett died. They even traveled with me when I needed to get away! And for two solid 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.”

Apparently there were reports that Travolta was thinking of abandoning his church, and at the time Scientology expert Rick Ross (no relation to the rapper) claimed there were “strong rumors coming out of Scientology that John Travolta [was] disappointed that the religion was not able to help his son more. It’s led him to question his faith.”

However, Travolta added, “I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t had the support of Scientology. I don’t think I could have got through it.” It's not clear what exactly the handlers did for the Saturday Night Fever star all day, but we're glad he's in a better place now!

John Travolta Is A Cool Rider in Vintage Mercedes-Benz

Go Greased Lightning! While automobile hounds like Justin Bieber and Scott Disick like to tear up Los Angeles streets in banana-yellow and leopard-print sports, Hollywood veteran John Travolta loves to tool around town in his vintage 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL. At least there is one thing he keeps classy! On Monday, the Pulp Fiction actor was snapped cruising through Beverly Hills looking like a cool rider in his vintage ride. Once a Danny Zuko, always a Danny Zuko!

Clearly Travolta must love this model of car because last year the actor had a different 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL stolen from him. In January 2012, the Saturday Night Fever star's classic Mercedes, which was believed to be worth around $100,000, was stolen off the street while the actor was visiting a Jaguar dealership in Santa Monica, Calif. The vehicle was later recovered in a chop chop, and two men were later arrested and sent to jail for the theft of the car.

The Get Shorty actor, who hasn't done a film since the 2012 clunker, Savages, next stars with Robert DeNiro in the action thriller Killing Season. The Oscar-nominated actor is also slated to take on the role of legendary crime boss John Gotti in the biopic Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father, due out in 2014.

John Travolta Sexual Assault Case Heading To Court

Feb 5, 2013 07:55 AM

A federal judge has thrown out a petition from Travolta's lawyer that requested the lawsuit be handled through private arbitration.

As a result of this ruling, the 58-year-old Pulp Fiction star will have to head to court and publicly face graphic accusations from Fabian Zanzi, who has accused Travolta of "forcefully embracing" him during a neck massage.

Zani says the actor engaged in contact that was "nonconsensual, inappropriate, extreme and outrageous" after disrobing during a June 2009 cruise. The lawsuit also claims Travolta offered the former cruise line employee $12,000 to stay quiet.

Travolta has denied all allegations.

The A-list actor and the rest of the cast of The Savages took care of their promotional duties in Rome today, and we have to give it to the Grease actor for putting on a smile for the cameras. The 58-year-old looks amazing for his age, but we have to ask - what is with his hair? We all know you're bald, Johnny, so just rock it!

The famous Scientologist was just honored with a lifetime achievement award at the San Sebastian Film Festival, and the action star opened up about his outlook on the future and his contentment with his personal life.

"I don't believe in regrets. I believe your future's in your tomorrows, but I do believe you learn from the past. It's been a good life. It's been filled with ups and downs, and fascinating adventures. As long as it's the right wife and the right family, I think it's marvelous. I have the right one, and I'm very happy for it. I know we're kind of dinosaurs in Hollywood, being together so long. But it works," he said.

Maybe all those masseurs were lying? He sounds like a happily married man!

John Travolta And Attorney Marty Singer Sued For Malicious Prosecution

Jun 22, 2012 08:00 AM

travolta042412_01_X17travolta230.jpgJohn Travolta and his lawyer Marty Singer are being sued by author Robert Randolph ... the man who wrote the book "You'll Never Spa In This Town Again."

Aside from writing the book, Randolph also contributed to a 2010 Gawker article called "The Secret Sex Life of John Travolta" which made allegations that Travolta had gay encounters in bath houses.

As a result, Singer sent a response to the website saying the allegations against his client were false. Randolph says the attorney also made "defamatory statements" against him ... alleging that the author had gone to a mental institution. Randolph's lawsuit says the following:

    "Several of the statements made by Defendant Singer, on behalf of Defendant Travolta, are untrue and amount to defamatory statements sought to disparage the quality of [Randolph's] property and reputation and to induce members of the public to believe [Randolph] is an unreliable source and thus abstain from purchasing" his book."

In response, Travolta's rep released the following statement:

    "The lawsuit filed by Robert Randolph is absurd. The suit is based on a privileged communication, and it will promptly be thrown out by the court. To evaluate the credibility of Robert Randolph and his ridiculous lawsuit one need look no further than his own statements published on his website stating that he sustained “permanent brain damage” and had to “retrain” his brain."
