Scientology “Minders” Followed John Travolta Every Day For TWO YEARS After His Son’s Death

  • Scientology “minders” followed John Travolta every single day for TWO YEARS when his faith in the pseudo-religion “wobbled” after his teenage son’s death in 2009. Jett Travolta, who had autism, died suddenly on a vacation in the Bahamas after suffering a seizure. Travolta and his wife, Kelly Preston, didn’t publicly acknowledge Jett’s autism until after his death. “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,” he told the UK’s Telegraph. “They were with me every day after Jett died. They even travelled with me when I needed to get away. And 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.” Er, um, okay. [Telegraph UK]
