Now, John Travolta has been going through an unimaginable time as of late…

On July 13th 2020, the actor confirmed that his wife, Kelly Preston, had died, aged just fifty-seven.

And, in this time, they shared 2 children: Ella, aged twenty, and Benjamin, 9.

And they quickly became one of Hollywood’s most loved couples.

Kelly had helped her husband in more ways than you could imagine.

When she too, died of breast cancer, just a year into their relationship.

And their relationship would finally allow him to properly settle down and fall in love again for the first time.

John and Kelly’s sixteen-year-old son, Jett, died suddenly after suffering a seizure while on vacation at Grand Bahama Island.

And, speaking in an interview in 2014, John described losing Jett as the “worst thing that’s ever happened in my life.”

In an interview with Lifetime, she said: “Nobody should have to lose a child. It’s unfathomable. But I’m here to say that you can get through it. You can live again. You can want to live again.”

The couple remained strong and helped each other through the grief and, in 2011, they announced the birth of their baby, Benjamin.

And, together, John and Kelly were able to move on from their grief.

So, of course, Kelly’s death last year came as a huge shock…

And it has left a huge hole in John’s life.

He wrote: “It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife, Kelly, has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer. She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many.”

“Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered. I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while.  But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal.”

But then, reports came in about his involvement in the church of Scientology.

In a 2009 interview, Kelly opened up about how her belief in Scientology helped her to deal with the untimely death of her teenage son.

“In Scientology, we have what’s called ‘auditing,’ and that helps you to address things in your life and to strip them away. It’s a path of spiritual enlightenment. Also, it helps rid the mind of painful experience completely. Through that, the people at my church literally held my hand and got me through… I will forever be indebted.”

According to the Daily Mail, the actor is facing a “make-or-break” moment over his forty-five-year devotion to Scientology because he defied the Church’s opposition to cancer treatments.

But other Scientology members have praised John for attempting to break away from the church.

He said: “The statement was unequivocal in the support of medical staff… It shows they’ve backed away from Scientology.”

However, he has taken to social media this week to pay tribute to his late wife by dancing with their daughter ahead of the Super Bowl.
Dancing, John says, was one of Kelly’s favorite things to do in the world.

The pair are among a star-studded group…

Travolta set up a tripod to record himself dancing in the yard as Ella told him he was doing it wrong.

“Dad, it’s the red one,” she said.
“I know,” he answered, continuing to futz with the phone.
“The other red one,” she repeated.
“I know,” he repeated.
