  • Kelly Preston Dead – Actress Dies at 57 After Two-Year Battle with Breast Cancer

In her final Instagram post, Kelly posted a heartfelt Father's Day tribute to John, writing "Happy Father's Day to the best one I know, we love you", alongside some sweet pictures of the family, including a sweet photo of John with Jett.

In a public statement given to People, the spokesperson of Kelly stated, "On the morning of July 12, 2020, Kelly Preston, adored wife, and mother, passed away following a two-year battle with breast cancer". Ella finished off the post with, "You have made life so handsome and I know you will continue to do so always".

Post his death, Travolta credited Church of Scientology for helping him cope with the family tragedy. His son Jett died in 2009 while on a family holiday. Jett had been diagnosed with Kawasaki disease, a condition that can cause inflammation of the arteries when he was 2 years old.

Kelly Preston, the actress married to John Travolta, has died after a private battle with breast cancer, aged 57. He was rushed to hospital but could not be revived.

The details surrounding the case remain murky, after a judge called a mistrial and then Travolta dropped the charges.

One look at Kelly Preston and John Travolta's relationship timeline tells you that theirs is an enduring love story-even if it now seems to have been tragically cut short.

Travolta testified during a criminal trial that ended in a mistrial and was prepared to testify a second time, but made a decision to stop pursuing the case and it was dismissed. Later, during an appearance on The Doctors, Preston opened up about her son's health. In the wake of her passing, many are sharing their fond memories of the star-including her longtime partner.
