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.

A Bahamian judge has declared a mistrial in the case of two people accused of trying to extort $25 million from John Travolta, citing suspected jury misconduct.

Extortion isn't the kind of crime you generally associate with a smoking gun, but it looks like secret police videos may have nailed the alleged extortionists in the John Travolta case as they haggled over how much to bilk the star for.

Tarino Lightbourne and Pleasant Bridgewater were allegedly overheard demanding John Travolta's lawyers pay millions in return for them not making public a document related to the treatment of his son Jett, who passed away in January.

The item at the center of the John Travolta extortion case has been revealed as a "refusal to transport" document, RadarOnline and TMZ are reporting.
