Oprah Winfrey, Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks have expressed their grief to devastated couple John Travolta and Kelly Preston, who lost their son on January 2.
The grieving parents’ 16-year-old Jett was found unconscious in a bathroom, where he had apparently fallen and hit his head following a seizure, in the family’s holiday home in the Bahamas.
Jett, who began suffering from seizures at the age of two and was a toddler when he was diagnosed with rare Kawasaki disease, had later been taken to Rand Memorial Hospital, Freeport, where he was pronounced dead.
Mike Ossi, the family’s lawyer, revealed that all celebrity friends had made it known that they were with the stars during their hard times.
"Everybody has reached out. It seems like the world has reached out and feels the pain that John and Kelly are going through,” Contactmusic quoted Ossi as telling U.S. TV show Entertainment Tonight.
“Thousands and thousands of phone calls have been received. Oprah has called. You name it, they''ve called,” he added.
