Kelly Preston feels if John ‘was with his family more, allegations wouldn’t surface’

John Travolta and Kelly Preston took a “togetherness” trip to the island of Kauai in Hawaii a couple of weeks ago. It was transparent attempt to repair their family image after all the lawsuits surfaced accusing John of sexually harassing various men. According to which account you read, it either repaired their marriage or made the rifts deeper. I imagine the truth is somewhere in between, and that these two have an unspoken agreement to be together in public and not much else. I could be wrong, but I see Kelly as quietly accepting her position in the marriage. It’s possible she’s as upset about the stories as everyone says, but I see her as either having a clue and just living with it, or being very deep in denial.

In Touch has photos of the vacation, which only show Kelly and John separately and never together except when they’re boarding a plane home. (You can see those pictures here, at The Daily Mail.) In Touch is selling the “family vacation” story. Which makes you wonder, if John and Kelly posed for paparazzi photos separately, and went on this vacation to try and make it look like their marriage was fine, how was it that they couldn’t even stage one outing together? The Enquirer has Kelly screaming at John and wanting to leave early, but they also have a photo from 1981 of John with that co-pilot who claimed to have been his lover for 6 years, which incidentally was from 1981-1987, right before he married Kelly. So it’s in their interest to make it sound like things are terrible. Here are those two very different stories:

In Touch: John & Kelly Healing in Hawaii
While Kelly believes the allegations – made by multiple male masseurs claiming that John fondled them during separate massages on opposite coasts in January – is “baseless”… it has nonetheless put an almost unbearable strain on [their marriage]…

“Kelly has always given John a long leash, and that’s why their marriage has been successful,” explains the friend. “But after Jett died, his need for solitude only increased…

“Jett was John’s best friend – a part of him died then. Kelly believed the best way she could support him was to give him space to grieve. If John was with his family more, she feels these kind of allegations wouldn’t surface…

“They will survive this,” predicts the friend. “In the end, their friendship and love for each other always wins out.”

Enquirer: Kelly’s Hawaiian Hell
They stayed with friends at a private home in Kauai, but things didn’t go as planned – and a source says Kelly exploded in a fit of rage soon after they landed.

“She boiled over and ripped into him” after our disclosure about John’s long-term sexual affair with his pilot lover, the source said. “She lashed out at Travolta and is wondering what’s next…

“The reports about the affair with the pilot put her over the top. She told him she was packing her bags and leaving, but he begged her to leave with him and instead to make onlookers think they were a happy couple. She reluctantly agreed.”

[From In Touch and The National Enquirer, print edition]

Again, I don’t see how Kelly either had a nice vacation with John or cares enough to get mad at him. How could she not know for so long? “Given him a long leash” is code for “ignored his affairs with men in favor of keeping up the facade.”

Meanwhile John is facing yet another lawsuit. A guy named Robert Randolph, who wrote a book called You’ll Never Spa in This Town Again, is suing John and his lawyer for defamation. The book has passages which detail John’s alleged romps in spas with various men. Randolph claims that Travolta and his lawyer, Marty Singer, tried to discredit him by sending out emails (to retailers, I gather) in which they claimed Randolph was crazy and had been in a mental institution. Singer’s defense is not that they didn’t send out those emails, but that the content of the e-mails is protected by law. Ridiculous! Of course they did this, this is how L Ron Hubbard told his flock how to deal with detractors. In Scientology, ad hominem attacks go way beyond words and get very personal and dangerous. They call it “fair game.” Randolph also told the National Enquirer in the fall of 2010that his car was run off the road twice when news of the book first came out. You can read more about the lawsuit he filed on TMZ.

    HA HA! Yes.. so many people set this scandal up and are jealous heathens and hate him… because?

    • foozy says:

      yeah. first tom cruise and now travolta. why do i get the feeling that they’re trying to bring down the church of scientology..

  2. Maguita says:

    Kelly, the troubles your man is facing could never be remedied with all the family time in the world. Even on the sunniest of beaches.

    Your man needs treatment, and not the kind they offer in one of them deserted Co$-approved locations.

    Your man is a felon. Allegedly. Your man is an abuser of men. Your man sexually attacks and tries to force himself on other men.

    No amount of “marriage” counseling, brainwashing, cleansing sessions, is going to rid your man of that disease.

    Best he faces allegations, for the first time in his life like a real man, and finds balance in his life as a father to your children, and an out and proud homosexual.

      this b sounds delusional. chillin in the tropics is not going to heal the seven types of effed up that is JT

    Let me try to fix that: “If John (allegedly) didn’t sexually harrassed masseurs at all, allegations wouldn’t surface”.

    • Anon says:

      So is true Kelly has an older disabled son (before Jett) with ex-husband Kevin Gage? that PR-reps did their best to erase, thank you bowels of the internet.

  4. lolaluvsu2 says:

    I don’t know….this whole thing makes me wonder a lot, about Kelly that is. How can a woman stay in a marriage like this? What is this need for money or fame worth? What kind of woman is she?

    • Chatcat says:

      Oh there is no question they are both sick f*cks.

      On a bright note (it won’t happen) but if JT finally got brought to justice for his abuses he’d get all he wants in any prison here in the good ole USofA.

      I have not one iota of positive thoughts or feelings for these two.

    • SarovaMellons says:

      @lola: I think you are wrong about Kellys motives.

      They’ve been together over 20 years. They’ve had 3 kids together (one of whom died). One of the kids is an infant no less. The bulk of the cash was made while they were married. Any court would give her half or very close to half the assets. The worst lawyer on the planet could secure that for her.

      As for the fame – Kelly isnt in the news until Johnny has news scandal. I’ve only just recently been able to recognise her in movies. She certainly hasnt had a booming career as a result either. At this point, Travolta is also having trouble securing roles – he was dropped from the Gotti film.

      Kellys motives go down to her religion, which tells her that if shes a “good wife” the gay husband will change. Also the fact that all her previous relationships were so deeply dysfunctional. Oddly, THIS may be the “healthiest” relationship she has ever been in. Crazy!

      • Tamima says:


        I dont understand people who think cash is a motive. The lady is set for life if she walks away now.

        She also doesnt do solo PR snaps. Its always with hubby or kids and usually in response to a new gay scandal.

        I just dont buy the fame whore or gold digger angles at all.

      • mln76 says:

        Her motive is power WITHIN the church of Scientology and behind the scenes industry.

      • LeeLoo says:

        People! This is the girl Charlie Sheen SHOT. This IS probably the most functional relationship she’s been in. This woman was a raging alcoholic and drug addict in the 80s. First off, she cleans up and then Co$ gets her hooks into her THEN she marries the gayest gay man in Hollywood, John Travolta. What does that tell you? This woman is not well and has been brainwashed to the maximum.

      • Aussie says:

        “Her motive is power WITHIN the church of Scientology and behind the scenes industry”

        But Min, she has zero power in Hollywood. Girl cant even get cast in a Leading Role. FYI: same for Spielberg and Hanks wives.

        And JT is no Spielberg either. He cant even carry film by himself. He is always cast with some recognised name; for good reason, JT alone does not put butts in Theatre seats!

        Where the cult is concerned, shes way above JT. Shes a Church Insider, with or without JT. And they love her for her money (which she will still have if she leaves him).

        Sorry this is so long but this is something I keep seeing going unchallenged. I just believe shes brainwashed and also traumatised by past relationships with drugs (Clooney) or physical abuse (Sheen).

      • Moi says:

        I agree with you LeeLoo. Bless her, she didn’t have a chance once involved with CoS.

    • Launicaangelina says:

      I think about the kids. How can they look at those kids’ faces and continue this facade? Their daughter is getting old enough to start hearing rumors and understand. I guess the money’s too good.

  5. mln76 says:

    Didn’t Gawker claim ages ago that Kelly has a boyfriend of her own? I doubt she gives a flying f–k what JT does behind the scenes if she’s pissed it’s only because HE GOT CAUGHT.
    I think his progressively flagrant, compulsive, and harassing behavior is a symptom of how tight a leash Kelly and the Scienos have sought to keep around his pudgy neck.
    She had Benjamin from frozen sperm because she thought that would keep him safely tucked in the closet.
    JT despite himself is doing his best to claw his way out if it weren’t for the way he’s chosen to do so by abusing and harassing innocent bystanders I’d have a bit of sympathy for him.

    • Lantana says:

      Ita. I don’t think either one of them cares what the other one does. I don’t see her as trying to salvage anything. She’s just going along to get along and keep the press out of JT’s face as much as she can. Maybe she looks at it as her job, as in employment.

    • mayamae says:

      I would think at her age Kelly had to use a donor egg as well. I’m sure the egg was stolen from some poor sea org girl.

  6. lisa2 says:

    Is this becoming a running theme. I see so many of these successful men NOT WITH THEIR FAMILIES. and then the men that are with their families they are the ones being smeared on the web and gossip rags.

    I applaud men that put family first.

  7. ZigZagZoey says:

    Is she INSANE? I’m asking this seriously.
    That Scientology KoolAid is much more potent that I ever realized.

  8. Mia 4S says:

    Look whatever their arrangement is, I have never felt it was anyone’s business…however…the second he started acting like a predator, HE made it a public concern. If she wants to stay with him she has to come to peace with the fact that everyone knows, we all know Kelly.

  9. lucy2 says:

    Sounds like COS is setting her up for public victim-hood.
    I’m not buying it – I think she knew all along, and was quite fine with their image/arrangement/marriage.

  10. LAK says:

    Kelly Preston feels if John ‘was with his family more, allegations wouldn’t surface’

    …..because that was the real problem!!!LOL.

  11. Jackie O says:

    i don’t think she really cares. she will just wait for it to blow over in the media, and then go back to the lifestyle she has had for over 20 years.

    even if charges were pressed against this guy, i don’t think she would go anywhere.

    their deep, deep denial has become a way of life.

  12. Dibba says:

    Quite the freakshow.

  13. irishserra says:

    LOL… and they chose to vacation in Hawaii? Not exactly the right setting to prevent John from being “distracted.”

    • Jackie O says:

      ha! and i am sure it was his idea.

      wonder if he is still ordering massages. predators like him can’t help themselves, so probably.

  14. Jaded says:

    I think this has been an arranged marriage from the get-go. CoS doesn’t want to let go of JT because he’s a gazillionaire and provides a great deal of $$ and “actor” prestige to the organization. He’s probably spent untold millions trying to control his “tendencies” but has to bust out once in a while. Marrying Kelly and having children is all part of the cover-up to make him appear “normal”, and Kelly bought into it because she never would have made it as an actress, she was deep into CoS and figured marrying him would keep her in the kind of lifestyle she could never have on her own. I think they are good friends who have an “agreement” and are both so tied into CoS that they could never extricate themselves even if they wanted to.

  15. Kim says:

    Uhhh no duh! If he was with his fanily he wouldnt be spending as much time is spas/with his lovers. She knew exactly what she was getting into when she signed the marriage contract she has with John. She just never thought his homosexuality would come to light and she is freaking out more so about people finding out she has known all along & agreed to be his wife in exchange for fortune & fame than people finding out her husband is gay. Everyone in Hollywood has known for decades he is gay. This is no secret.

    What would be a bigger scandal that a man we pretty much all know is gay confirms he is OR it coming to light that his wife has always known he was gay and agreed to be his beard for a huge payout?

    She sold her soul and its coming to haunt her big time.

    Does that baby look ANYTHING like either of them? The first two were so dark-haired. Haven’t seen other pix but his eyes… downs?

    This brawd!! She needs to be slapped, just like she got slapped by Angela Bassett in “Waiting to Exhale”
