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

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

However, in 2009, tragedy struck again.

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."

But, despite her pain, she was a solid rock for her husband.

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 came as a huge shock...

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

John shared the devastating news via Instagram...

He wrote: "It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife, Kelly, has lost her 2-year battle with breast cancer. She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many."

He informed his fans that he would be taking some time to grieve with his children.

"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."

This week, just 2 months on from Kelly's death...

John has been faced with even more heartbreak.

His nephew, Sam, has passed away.

According to The Sun, a friend told the publication: "He will be greatly missed, but he will always be with us."

"I found out through high school friends, they reached out to me to let me know. We had a great time when we used to hang together in high school."

"Sam was definitely proud of being related to John Travolta. He was happy go lucky and a good friend, good-spirited."

Sam was the son of the actor’s eldest brother, Sam Travolta Sr...

He carved out a career for himself as a screenwriter and previously claimed that his uncle sent him a monthly allowance of $1800.

Sam was just fifty-two years old.

And his cause of death is currently unknown.

John Travolta is yet to speak out.

Rest in peace, Sam. Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this difficult time. For more on stars, we've sadly lost this year, scroll on...
