“Serious Crimes Unit” In Bahamas Investigating Jett Travolta’s Death



UPDATE 1/4/09:
TMZ is reporting that there’s a conflict brewing between the Bahama PD and John Travolta’s camp regarding the time line of Jett Travolta’s death. People who are with Travolta are bristling at the suggestion Jett might have been left unattended for more than 10 hours, but this morning cops say they are sticking to their story.

Police in the Bahamas are investigating yesterday’s death of John Travolta’s 16 year-old son Jett Travolta through their “Serious Crimes” unit. Jett died yesterday, ostensibly due to a seizure that caused him to hit his head in the bathtub of the Travolta vacation spot on Grand Bahama Island. What is not clear is WHY Jett was alone in the bathtub.

Jett was last seen by anyone the night prior to his death when he went to the bathroom. He wasn’t found until 10:00am yesterday morning. His “nanny” Jeff Michael Kathrein found him. This pic of John and Jeff is from 2006, but maybe it’s why Jeff wasn’t caretaking too well.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday, and Jett’s body is to be flown Tuesday to Florida.

Jett had a history of seizures, and, unfortunately, John and wife Kelly Preston are Scientologists. Scientologists shun virtually all forms of medication, and instead use dangerous detox “purification rundown” regimens, potentially toxic high-dose Niacin treatments, “auditing” (the tin-can sham) and other whacky “cures” like “touch assists” for what ails someone. No anti-seizure medicines for Jett, you can be sure of that. Jett was extremely developmentally challenged, and was known not to be able to communicate with words. Most people agree he was autistic, especially people in Ocala, FL. where the family spends much of their time.

John and Kelly refused to admit Jett’s true affliction, choosing instead the obscure “Kawasaki Syndrome” to define Jett’s problems. Any quick study of the syndrome reveals that it was highly unlikely that it was what Jett suffered from.

Is Scientology responsible for this tragedy? Had Jett been taking the proper medications he more than likely would not have suffered a seizure. He would probably still be alive. Instead of being cared for by a proper medical facility, Jett underwent Scientology “sec checks” and “auditing” – neither of which involves the treatment he needed for his disease. The Church and its members freely practice medicine without being licensed.

It is heartbreaking that this young man, obviously dependent on others to care for him, was a victim of the insane doctrines and of the cult of Scientology. Scientologists actively perform the exact same treatments on others who suffer from similar diseases. They are doing it right now, in this country.

For all of the Xenu and alien jokes we make about the members of this cult, Jett’s death highlights the true danger involved for anyone who has been brainwashed into the hands of these money-grabbing idiots. I feel very sad for John, Kelly and Jett’s little sister Ella. Maybe this tragedy will open their eyes, and those of others, to the truth about these horrible people- and Jett’s death won’t be in vain.

Breaking: John Travolta’s Son Jett Travolta Dies

John Travolta’s son Jett, age 16, has died. Jett passed away after suffering a seizure at the family vacation home at Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island. The boy’s body was discovered by his caretaker, Jeff Michael Kathrain, at around 10 a.m. in a bathtub in the Travoltas’ suite, according to police superintendent Basil Rahming. He had not been seen by John or anyone else since he went to the bathroom the previous night. The theory is that Jett hit his head in the bathtub. Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful, and he was declared dead at Rand Memorial Hospital on Grand Bahama Island. “We are still investigating,” Rahming said.

Jett has long been rumored to be autistic, and most certainly had medical issues. As John and his wife Kelly Preston are devout Scientologists, they allegedly denied any therapeutic autism treatments for Jett’s problems, and have kept him virtually hidden away for years. Seizures are not uncommon at all in autistic children, and Jett had suffered many previously. Travolta has always denied the autism claims, and contended that Jett had Kawasaki Syndrome, a poorly understood vascular disease which can affect the heart. Kelly Preston told Montel Williams that Jett was put on a special detox program as prescribed by Scientology. “He ended up getting better,” she said, but noted the boy still “has lots of allergies.”

The noise-canceling headphones Jett wore, however, are indicative of an autism-spectrum disorder. Scientologists consider any type of “mental disorder” as bogus, and someone who exhibits signs of such as inferior. As someone who has worked closely with autistic children for over a decade, video clips of Jett certainly look like he suffered from the disorder.

It is extremely rare for anyone over the age of 8 to have symptoms of Kawasaki Syndrome, an extremely rare syndrome itself. It is even more rare for someone to die from the syndrome. An autopsy will be held in the Bahamas on Monday. Video of the ambulance rushing Jett to the hospital is here.

Jett was the eldest child of John and Kelly; they also have a daughter, Ella Blue, age 8. Restview Memorial Mortuary and Crematorium in the Bahamas says Jett’s body will be transferred to them on Monday. We will be updating this breaking news as more info becomes available.

Crimes Against Fashion: Katie Holmes Edition (Again)


Sigh. Oh, Katie Holmes. Snarkista is naming you her winner for “Most Crimes Against Fashion 2008.” No, it won’t help you get a Tony Award. Are you not living in New York, arguably the fashion capital of the world? And is it not WINTER in New York? Even if the city’s experiencing a warm snap, there is NO excuse for this outfit. Wearing leggings, Snarkista’s most hated form of clothing is violation #1. Wearing leggings with SHORTS is violation #2. And wearing leggings and shorts with PUMPS is the third strike, making you OUT.

Not out like your hubby Tommy wants to have the gays be, with his proposal for a U.S. gay census like the UK has (for realz!). That’s a subject for another post, although it is QUITE amusing coming from Ms. Tom. No, Katie, just out like PLEASE DON’T GO OUT DRESSED LIKE THIS ANY MORE! You’re hogging all of the CAF awards. Pamela Anderson and Solange Knowles are getting pissed. Do not mess with Solange- she will cut a bitch. With FEATHERS!

Tom Cruise Gives Katie Holmes Hallucinogens For Her Birthday


Tom Cruise has been on a tour lately to try and convince us he’s normal. Guess what? Nice try, but EPIC FAIL. Tommy-Girl has been alluding for weeks that his birthday present for wife Katie Holmes was going to be really special. Oh, it’s special alright. Katie better haul ass.

Tom revealed his present to robot devoted Katie today… a Salvia divinorum mint plant in full blossom! Ah, mint, you say. Great for cooking! Tommy will be making some “special tea” for Katie soon. He found a small specimen of the plant, known as “the Sage of the Seers,” in an East Village WITCHCRAFT store. The plant is indigenous to Mexico and was and is used by shamans of the Mazatec Indians for its ability to create visions and hallucinations. Just what every woman dreams of! VIVIDLY.

Look for Katie to commit more “crimes against fashion” soon, yet in a much more colorful way. Happy Birthday, “Kate”!

Tom Cruise Wants To Marry David Beckham. Oh, And Posh Too.


This is NOT gonna help squelch those “Tom Cruise is gay” rumors! Tommy-girl is a certifiable freak. Australia’s Live News says that he gave David and Victoria Beckham a truly bizarre Thanksgiving present…a pseudo-wedding between him, David, Katie and Posh. WTF?! Who the hell gives Thanksgiving presents anyways? Sneaky Scientologists, that’s who! Tommy’s been trying to lure Posh and Becks into the alien corps forever, and now he’s cemented the title of Chief Nutbag.

Reportedly, at some point next year, Tom & Katie will hold a ceremony during which both the Cruises and the Beckhams will “vow to be brothers and sisters and exchange heartfelt speeches.” A source tells the site, “Tom wanted to make a special gesture that would show how much he appreciates their friendship and he thought this would be the perfect way.” The joining will take place at Katie’s New York hideout townhouse.

Tommy wants to make a “special gesture” towards Becks, alright, and besides- you KNOW this has to be some kind of Scientology trap! Don’t walk down the aisle, Beckhams! Wrap that turkey of a Thanksgiving gift back up and give it to Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz. They’ll be ALL for it, (especially Pete) and Papa Joe can sell the wedding pics! Bonus!

Uh Oh, Tom Cruise Is “Laughable” In Valkyrie

Oh, this is NOT good for Tom Cruise’s efforts to reverse his current “box-office poison” reputation. As you all know, Tom is starring in the much-delayed “Valkyrie”, where he plays a Nazi bent on assassinating Hitler. The movie is NOT a comedy, but test audiences are having a hard time not laughing at Tommy-Girl’s performance. Yikes. MGM’s marketing team having to work hard to convince them that “Valkyrie” is a thriller. Unfortunately, those who’ve gotten a peek say not only is the film nowhere near as exciting as a thriller, but Tommy’s performance elicits uncomfortable and inappropriate laughs. We saw this coming a MILE away. Tom cannot separate his off-screen, couch-jumping, Xenu believing self from ANY character he plays, unless he’s in a really good disguise.

Some of the odd moments in “Valkyrie” come when Cruise’s character, Claus Von Stauffenberg, is forced to give a “Heil Hitler” salute. A source tells The Scoop that

“It’s an unsettling scene but you almost start to laugh. His character is resisting it but you never forget it’s Tom Cruise saying ‘Heil Hitler.’ It’s funny and shocking at the same time.”

Another described a scene where Cruise’s character removes a false eye.

“It was disgusting,” said another who saw the film. “It was like watching someone pluck their contacts out. The film just isn’t a thriller at all. It’s a bunch of white guys in Nazi uniforms. It’s too bad. And Tom doesn’t speak with a German accent, though they did add a voice-over of him speaking German to the beginning of the film. Still, it’s as if he could say ‘I complete you’ at any time. This is not his Oscar moment.”

Snarkista’s having a hard time believing ANY “Oscar moments” are in store for Tommy. He’s become the face of Scientology, has turned his wife Katie Holmes into a robot, and is constantly trying to control every aspect of his family’s life. Don’t despair, Tom. Surely Scientology has SOME kind of equivalent. Oh yeah, they already gave it to you!

What’s Up With Katie Holmes’ Teeth?!


Oh, this makes Katie’s OTHER Crimes Against Fashion look like misdemeanors! What happened to Katie’s teeth? The pic on the left was shot yesterday, the pic in the middle was shot this summer, and the pic on the right is a closeup. Yikes! This is beyond a chipped tooth…her whole smile is snaggled! Is Katie getting ready to be a vampire on Halloween? Did she forget her dentures? Is this the result of too much Scientology barley water? WTF?!
