John Travolta: Medic Threatened to Blame Son’s Death on Me

John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston returned Wednesday to a Bahamas courthouse for a trial related to an alleged extortion attempt, and Travolta made some startling allegations.

According to the Associated Press, Travolta said in court that a medic, Tarino Lightbourne, who is being investigated for allegedly attempting to extort money from him, threatened to claim that Travolta was responsible for his son Jett's death last January. Travolta signed a document that allowed his son to be taken to the airport instead of the hospital, but in the end, his son was taken to the hospital. Travolta said in court Wednesday that Lightbourne threatened to cite the document as an example to "imply that the death of my son was intentional and I was culpable in some way."

A week ago today, Travolta took the stand to talk about the day his 16-year-old son Jett died following a seizure, according to the AP. The AP reports that Travolta performed CPR on his chronically ill son after he and his wife were alerted to his son's condition when they were awakened at 10:15 a.m. by a nanny.
