Tom Cruise upset as he describes Jetts death as horrific
Tom Cruise has poignantly spoken out in support of his good friend John Travolta – describing his 16-year-old son Jett’s death as ‘horrific’.
The Valkyrie actor made his comments during an interview on American chat show, The View.
And has he spoke, the actor couldn’t hold back a choke in his throat.
‘John just adored him, both of his children,’ he faltered, before continuing: ‘It’s something that I don’t have the words for.’
The 46-year-old star described Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston as ‘doting parents, just wonderful people’.
The star couple also have an eight-year-old daughter, Ella Bleu.
Jett died on a family holiday in the Bahamas on 2 January 2009.
A Bahamas undertaker said the teen’s death certificate listed ‘seizure’ as the cause of death.
Rumours about Scientology – the religion followed by Cruise and Travolta – and its beliefs towards medication have been swirling since Jett’s death.
But Cruise dismissed the suggestion that the church discourages conventional medical care, insisting: ‘Actually, it’s the exact opposite. They say, “Get your physical, get your medication, get your physical illnesses handled.’
