UPDATE: The trial has now begun. John Travolta has not yet taken the stand. More details to come…
John Travolta is expected to be among the first witnesses called to the stand Tuesday in the Bahamas-based extortion trial linked to the death of his 16-year-old son, Jett.
This is thought to be Travolta’s first trip back to the Island since his son died January 2nd from a seizure at the family’s vacation home on Grand Bahama island.
Three men and six women were selected as jurors Monday for the trial of former senator, Pleasant Bridgewater and paramedic, Tarino Lightbourne; the men are accused of attempting to extort $25 million from Travolta by threatening to go public with a document that protected emergency responders from liability.
Bridgewater and Lightbourne remain free on bail.
