He denies his son is autistic even if the signs are too plain to see.
No, John Travolta isn’t blind. He just a member of that outa-this-world Scientology whatever whose members (of whom Tom Cruise is the most celebrated) have a different view of life.
In a recent press conference, Travolta, 53, said he and his wife Kelly, 44, are interested in having another child.

He also talks about how his 15-year-old son Jett loves to read or play sports.
But the mediamen who were present at the press conference clearly saw that the boy could not do both because of his autism.
Other stars like Sylvester Stallone, Doug Flutie, Jenny McCarthy and Toni Braxton are parenting autistic children. But Travolta pretends there’s nothing wrong with Jett, although he claims that he has Kawasaki syndrome, a disease characterized by high fever, skin rash and swelling of the lymph nodes.
“Scientology is keeping him from acknowledging his son’s autism. They see it as a weakness,” said Tim Kenny, one of Travolta’s neighbors, and the father of an autistic girl. “He could do so much good for autism awareness if he would just come forward.”
