John Travolta's 16-year-old son died Friday in the Bahamas, reports say.
Jett Travolta passed away while on vacation with his film star dad and his wife, actress Kelly Preston, officials at Rand Memorial Hospital in Freeport told TMZ.com.
It was not immediately clear what caused the tragic death of Jett Travolta, whom many believed to be autistic.
Travolta's attorney, Michael Ossi, told the website that Jett suffered a seizure while on vacation with his family vacation at the Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island.
Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful, and he died on the scene.
For years, Travolta denied his son was autistic, insisting he suffered from Kawasaki syndrome, a rare disease characterized by high fever, skin rash and swelling of the lymph nodes.

Even though they are Scientologists, they are pretty cool and don't push it on people AKA T Cruise.
