Rand Memorial Hospital in the Bahamas tells TMZ the son of John Travolta died today.

We're told 16-year-old Jett was vacationing with Travolta and wife Kelly *******. We do not know the circumstances of his death.

There have been reports that Jett was autistic, though Travolta has denied it, saying he suffers from Kawasaki Syndrome, a condition which often leads to heart disease.

That's so terrible.

A friend of mine's daughter had Kawasaki's two years ago. I know it weakens the heart. I haven't seen any link between the Kawasaki's and the seizure in this instance. Wondering if they're related?

Is there a link from an actual news source? Sorry but blogs and tabloids aren't something I'm going to take as fact. I googled and only saw it posted on tabloid sites.

So, so sad. Grief in the public eye has to be even harder.

wasn't there something about him possibly having autism and the travoltas refusing to treat it because of the scientology church not allowing it or soemthing? I don't remember exactly.

I am sad for them - what an awful thing.

autism is NOT fatal. we don't "treat" our son's autism - not because we're scientologists but b/c we don't consider it a disease...

just an fyi....

this is very sad - my heart goes out to the travolta-******* family

I'm Andrea - I have three boys - 12 year old twins & an 11 year old
