In January 2009, while on a holiday with his parents and younger sister, Jett Travolta died in the Bahamas from a seizure.

John announced the heartbreaking news that 57-year-old Kelly had died from the relentless illness over the weekend.

Breaking his silence the devastating loss via Instagram, Travolta revealed, "It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my attractive wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer". It was ultimately Preston's destiny to be upstaged by the more sympathetic and relatable love-interest Renée Zellweger in that film, but she was a fierce and powerful figure as his cynical and fanatically careerist fiancée, Avery, who is furious at what appears to be Jerry's midlife breakdown in quitting his lucrative job, thus putting their wealthy power-couple prestige in mortal danger. But what made her career so remarkable was something that ostensibly had nothing to do with work: her marriage to John Travolta in 1991, which seemed to bring her highly polished trophy-beauty persona down from the shelf and into the real world.

'Pembroke sends their deepest condolences to Mr Travolta and family during this hard time'.

Ms. Preston and Travolta starred together in the 2018 film "Gotti", with Travolta playing John Gotti and Ms. Preston playing the crime boss's wife, Victoria.

"I have never met anyone as courageous, strong, handsome and loving as you".
