John Travolta to Testify This Week

John Travolta will be forced to re-open a wound this week when he testifies in the extortion trial surrounding the death of his son Jett. He will travel to the Bahamas and take the stand against Paramedic Tarino Lightbourn, and former Bahamian senator Pleasant Bridgewater.

They each face charges of conspiring to extort $25 million from Travolta so they wouldn't go public with a document detailing Jett's emergency care that day. Both have pleaded not guilty.

Sources tell TMZ Travolta’s testimony in the extortion trial over his son's death will focus on two issues -- John's interaction with the paramedic as they tried to save Jett, and John's emotional reaction to the alleged plot.

TMZ also reports that once the extortion demand was made, Travolta had no direct contact with Lightbourn or Bridgewater. But sources say prosecutors will ask Travolta about his reaction once he learned of the plot just days after his son's death.

This will such an emotional week for John. Our thoughts are with him and wife Kelly Preston at this time.
