Littrell's Prayers For Travolta Family
BACKSTREET BOYS star BRIAN LITTRELL has sent his condolences to JOHN TRAVOLTA and KELLY PRESTON following the death of their son JETT.
The 16-year-old died following a seizure at the family's Bahamas holiday retreat on Friday (02Jan09).
The teenager reportedly suffered from Kawasaki Syndrome - a disease which inflames organs mainly in children.
Littrell's six-year-old son Baylee was diagnosed with the disease last month (Dec08), and the link hasn't been lost on the singer, who has sent his "love and prayers" to the actor.
In a statement, Littrell and his wife Leighanne say, "We are so deeply touched for the Travoltas. We thought what we just went through was horrendous enough, so we can't imagine what they are going through. We want to pass on our condolences, our love and prayers."
Neither Travolta nor his wife Kelly Preston have ever confirmed their son was a Kawasaki sufferer.
