Most religious organisations can weather a high-profile defection or two. Many might successfully explain away a fraud conviction in a foreign criminal court, or deal with the spectacular suicide of a member, or muddle through a less than stellar public performance by a prominent spokesman. Rarely, though, does a religion have to face up to all these challenges in the same week. The past few days have been little short of a nightmare for Scientology, the strange, secretive religion that thrives ...

A Bahamanian politician blamed a misunderstanding yesterday for the sudden collapse of the trial of two people accused of trying to extort $25 million from actor John Travolta. A Bahamanian Supreme Court judge declared a mistrial on Wednesday just two hours after the politician, Picewell Forbes, announced at his party’s annual convention on live television that one of the accused had been cleared - even though jurors were still deliberating. Tarino Lightbourne, an ambulance driver, and Pleasant Bridgewater, a lawyer and ...

It was a twisted scheme playing on a broken dad's unbearable grief. A blackmailing medic and his brazen lawyer threatened to tell the world John Travolta "intentionally killed" his son unless they got $25 million in hush money, the star's lawyer testified Thursday. Paramedic Tarino Lightbourne planned to make public a routine waiver Travolta signed initially refusing local medical treatment after his autistic son, Jett, 16, suffered a massive seizure in the family's Bahamas resort villa. The actor had considered flying ...

Travolta's Scientology turning point? — The Daily Beast

The actor’s public acknowledgement that his son, who died in January, was autistic has former Scientologists convinced that he will leave the church—which they say has little tolerance for chronic conditions. When John Travolta took the witness stand last week and testified that his late son, Jett, was autistic, it came as a grim relief to some former Scientologists. “Wasn’t that amazing?” said a fallen-away church member after Travolta appeared in an extortion case that followed the death of his 16-year-old ...

A July 25 report in Britain's Daily Mail newspaper claiming that Travolta, 55, had grown disenchanted with his longtime religion in the wake of his son Jett's death in January is "totally false," his rep Paul Bloch tells PEOPLE. "There's no change in the relationship between the Church of Scientology and John," says Bloch. "He is a member and it's as it was, now and forever." The still-grieving actor, his wife Kelly Preston, 46, and their daughter Ella Bleu, 9, recently ...

Dead of night, and on a deserted Florida landing strip, the silence of the oppressively hot early hours is broken by the low whirring of an electric golf cart, driving lazy circuits. At the wheel is a bulky, lone figure, hunched forward over the controls as he tries to kill time during another long, sleepless night. It is a sight that has become something of a regular occurrence in recent weeks, as Hollywood star John Travolta acts out his bizarre nocturnal ...

Travolta and Cruise deny pushing for the dismissal of entertainment reporter In a conspiracy as contorted as the plot of one of their action movies, Tom Cruise and John Travolta have been accused of persuading Rupert Murdoch's Fox News to sack an influential entertainment journalist who had a history of criticising the Church of Scientology.

Fox News bowed to pressure from Kelly Preston, Tom Cruise and other members of the Church of Scientology when it fired columnist Roger Friedman, the entertainment journo is expected to charge in a wrongful termination lawsuit this week. In April, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. announced it had “terminated” Friedman after he wrote on FoxNews.com about watching a pirated Internet copy of 20th Century Fox’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” Friedman is convinced that was a cover story. Last August, Friedman went to Memphis ...

John Travolta, defying Scientology, acknowledged son's autism — Gawker
Type: Blog
Author(s): John Cook

According to a Bahamian police report taken in February after his son Jett's death last year, Travolta acknowledged in his own words that "Jett suffered from a seizure disorder and was autistic." That's a big no-no in Scientology. The report was obtained by the National Enquirer. Travolta's use of the term "autistic" seems to be a break from church doctrine, which teaches that pyschiatric diagnoses are fake ailments invented by Nazi psychiatrists so they can give people drugs to keep them ...

Those evil dudes also kill 3000 people a month by prescribing psychotropic drugs, it says. While Tom Cruise's comely visage does not feature on the DVD, it is the product of that crazy ...

John Travolta and his wife Kelly stood vigil for four hours over the body of their 16-year-old son Jett on the tiny island of Grand Bahama. The poignant scene was described by neighbour and family friend Obie Wilchcombe, who said: ‘They didn’t want to leave.’ The teenager’s premature death from an epileptic fit last weekend was as unexpected as it was tragic. Although Jett had suffered serious health problems since early childhood, the Hollywood actor believed his son would be as ...
