John Travolta’s Wife Kelly Preston Dies At Age 57


Kelly Preston has died aged 57 after a private battle with breast cancer.

The actress and wife of John Travolta, kept her cancer fight away from the public eye with many shocked by the news of her untimely death.

A representative of the Travolta family first shared the news saying: “On the morning of July 12, 2020, Kelly Preston, adored wife and mother, passed away following a two-year battle with breast cancer.”

“Choosing to keep her fight private, she had been undergoing medical treatment for some time, supported by her closest family and friends. She was a bright, beautiful and loving soul who cared deeply about others and who brought life to everything she touched. Her family asks for your understanding of their need for privacy at this time.”

Her husband John Travolta took to Instagram shortly after to pay tribute to his much loved wife in a heartbreaking post.

“It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer,” he posted.

“She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many. My family and I will forever be grateful to her doctors and nurses at MD Anderson Cancer Center, all the medical centers that have helped, as well as her many friends and loved ones who have been by her side. Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered.

“I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while. But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal.”

Preston was a successful actress who starred in a string of films including SpaceCamp (1986), Twins(1988), Jerry Maguire (1996) and For Love of the Game (1999). Her final film role was in the 2018 film Gotti in which she played Victoria Gotti, the wife of Mafia boss John Gotti, who was portrayed on screen by Travolta.

Preston is survived by Travolta and their children Ella, 20, and nine-year-old son Benjamin. The couple tragically lost their son son Jett at age 16 in January 2009.
