John Travolta suffered an emotional collapse as he prepared to testify in the extortion over his son Jett’s death.
The Hollywood star was apparently panic-stricken by idea of returning to the Bahamas and recalling the agony of the unsuccessful fight to save the life of his 16-year-old autistic son.
“The worry over giving evidence had been eating away at John for months,” a source told the National Enquirer.
“Just the thought of going back to the country where he and Kelly lost Jett and having to live through that nightmare again became too much for him.
“He was truly panicked by the idea of having to go on the witness stand and recall the battle for Jett’s life.”
Meanwhile, Travolta has been ordered to give more evidence in the trial — after reportedly flying out of the Bahamas and returning home to Florida.
He was informed by the judge at Nassau Supreme Court that he will have to give further evidence when more witnesses have been heard.
Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston are believed to have returned to the family home in Ocala, but are likely to fly back and face fresh anguish in the witness stand next week.
Paramedic Tarino Lightbourn and his attorney, former Bahamian Sen. Pleasant Bridgewater, are accused of conspiring to extort $25 million from Travolta for a document relating to Jett’s treatment. The pair have pleaded not guilty and are out on bond.
