  • John Travolta at centre of alleged blackmail scheme

    John Travolta is the victim of an extortion scheme involving the death of his 16-year-old son, Jett, it has been claimed.

    It is believed the threat revolves around a picture taken of his dying son by a trusted parademic.

    The other person involved in the scheme is allegedly a politician in the Bahamas, where the teen passed away.

    The men are allegedly threatening to sell the photo to the highest bidder if the Pulp Fiction actor doesn’t pay up first.

    Officers are said to be investigating the plot.

    A lawyer for Travolta, 54, and his wife, Kelly Preston, 46, said: ‘Regrettably, in times of such terrible grief, there are often a few individuals who attempt to make false claims in hopes of making millions of dollars.’

    Too low for words.
