Rumors that John Travolta was about to escape the clutches Church of Scientology were apparently just that: rumors. Though John recently acknowledged his son Jett’s autism — contradicting some of the Church of Scientology’s beliefs — insiders say that the force is still strong with him.
According to an insider close to John, the grieving father remains “firmly committed” to Scientology, despite reports that Church big wigs aren’t happy with his public acknowledgment of Jett’s disease.
John apparently doesn’t hold a grudge against the Church, which doesn’t acknowledge chronic mental illnesses or prescription medications used to treat them — even though it’s now generally accepted that John’s son Jett suffered from untreated Autism.
Jett died of complications resulting from an apparent seizure brought on by his untreated illness back in January.
