Travolta was in a relationship with actress Diana Hyland, whom he met while filming The Boy in the Plastic Bubble (1976). They remained together until Hyland’s death from breast cancer on March 27, 1977. In 1980, Travolta dated French actress Catherine Deneuve.
Travolta also had an on-again/off-again relationship with actress Marilu Henner, which ended permanently in 1985. In 1988 while filming The Experts, Travolta met actress Kelly Preston, whom he married in Paris in 1991.
They had three children: Jett (1992–2009), Ella Bleu (born 2000), and Benjamin (born 2010). They regularly attended marriage counseling and Travolta has stated that therapy helped the marriage. They resided in Ocala, Florida.
On January 2, 2009, Jett died at age 16 while on a Christmas vacation in the Bahamas. A Bahamian death certificate was issued, attributing the cause of death to a seizure.
Jett, who had a history of seizures, reportedly suffered from Kawasaki disease since the age of two.
Travolta confirmed that Jett was autistic and suffered regular seizures, and immediately made his public statements while giving testimony at a multimillion-dollar extortion plot against him in connection with Jett’s death.
After a mistrial, Travolta dropped the charges and has credited his immediate family and Scientology with helping him to cope with Jett’s death and move forward with his career.
In memory of Jett, Travolta created the Jett Travolta Foundation, a nonprofit organization to help children with special needs.
It has contributed to organizations such as the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy, Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential, and Simon Wiesenthal Center.
On July 12, 2020, Travolta’s wife, Kelly Preston, died at the age of 57, two years after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Preston was receiving treatment at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas; she was also treated at other medical centers.
