Brave John Travolta is a practicing Scientologist since 1975. He met Kelly Preston in 1987 for a movie and both got married 1991. Kelly Preston was also a Scientologist and has openly praised The Church from time and time again. In fact, it is said that had it been for Brave John Travolta, he might have left the Church long ago but it was because of Kelly that he continued.
Kelly was a hardcore follower of Scientology. She passed away tragically after battling with breast cancer for the longest on July 12, 2020. Now, it is to be noted that the founder of The Church of Scientology was strictly against chemotherapy and radiation. So, with Kelly gone and John praising the medical team, where does that lead the actor with his religion? Let’s find out.
Brave John Travolta Appreciates Medical Team
Brave John Travolta and Kelly Preston met at sets of ‘The Experts’. John was already a Scientologist back then and Kelly was aware of the same. The couple were attarcted to each other and their relationship began.
Now, it is unsure how much role the Church played in their relationship (read: Tom Cruize and Katie Holmes) but it worked! The couple got married in 1991 and spent almost 29 years together before Kelly passed died.
29 years seem to be a lifetime if we are considering Hollywood normal standard but Kelly and John made it. There were disturbances (more on it later) but couple stick together through thick and thin.
Kelly was diagnosed with breast cancer almost 2 years ago but chose to keep the news private. She was undergoing treatment for some time but did not disclose the news to anyone except her closed ones and family.
Whether the decision to keep things hidden was a intentional because of the Church, is not revealed yet. However, we know for sure that Kelly underwent medical treatment which were against the ideologies of the Church.
Brave John Travolta praised the medical team that treated his wife on social media openly. He thanked the doctors and nurses at the MD Anderson Cancer Center and all the other medical teams that helped.
This message did not go unnoticed by some former Scientologists. They are claiming that Brave John Travolta updating such a message is a clear indication that he is backing out from Scientology.
It would not be the first time John tried doing so as a matter of fact. In the past, there were a lot of controversies that indicated that his priorities do not align with that of the Church. But it was Kelly, who acted like an anchor held him to the Church.
John Brave Travolta Controvery
Believe it or not, but the ‘Pulp Fiction’ star was charged of sexual assault back in 2000. It was not any woman who made the complain but a man. The incident took place at a resort in February 2000.
While seeking a relaxing massage, allegedly, John got way too excited and groped the then 21 year old masseur. John even flashed the masseur in the most inappropriate way and shared his gay fantasy with him.
A report was filed but the case closed as soon as it had opened. No actions were taken and the matter was suppressed. Though, it did come into the headlines that this kind of sexual predator behavior was not new for Brave John Travolta.
The news slowly started to break that he has been interested in starting sexual relationships with men on high-end spas, resorts, and cruise. All such rumors were denied by Travolta.
It is to be noted that Tom Cruize was speculated to be gay by the end of his marriage with Mimi Rogers. Tom Cruise, another high-profile follower of Scientology, denied all such rumors.
It is clear that The Church of Scientology is completely anti-gay and does not tolerate homosexuality. It also prepares its followers to stay unaffected by any news that splashes on the media. And that is what John & Kelly did – stayed unaffected.
Celebrities Bid Their Goodbye
Kelly Preston’s death came as a shock to many. The 57 year old actress has a wonderful career of 40 years in the industry and many of her celebrity friends bid the actress their goodbye. Demi Moore wrote on her post that world has lost another loving soul. Russell Crowe called the late actress a ‘sparkly eyed gem’ and Arnold Schwarzenegger expressed that he was lucky to have worked with her.
John Travolta, in a heart-touching message for his late wife, said that he will be taking some time alone with his family to grieve for the tragic loss. John and Kelly’s daughter, Ella, also updated a picture expressing what a wonderful person Kelly was and thanked her for all her love.
