John Travolta Drops Extortion Charges Against Paramedic, Lawyer

by at . Comments

John Travolta has enough personal issues to deal with these days: some idiot author has accused the actor of having gay affairs, while wife Kelly Preston is pregnant.

As a result of all that's on his plate, Travolta has chosen to drop the extortion charges against a Bahamian paramedic and lawyer who allegedly threatened to expose details of Jett Travolta's death last year unless the movie star paid $25 million.

Said Travolta, speaking on this decision and on the first trial of Tarino Lightbourne and Pleasant Bridgewater, which resulted in a mistrial:

"The first trial in this matter resulted in a heavy emotional toll on my family. It was finally time to put this matter behind us... I concluded that it was in my family's best interest for me not to voluntarily return to the Bahamas to testify a second time at trial."

We wish Travolta and Preston nothing but the best.

Mr.Travolta, you and your family are in my prayers!! It's amazing at how low people will step in order to make money off of someone else's tragedy??!! It's not as if Travolta is one of these goofs out there drinking/drugging causing/making a spectacle of himself and family. Leave this Hollywood legend alone and let him get on with his life.
