Did John Travolta hire his rumored gay lover to care for an ill child?

TMZ reported on its website that Jeff Kathrein, one of the Travolta family’s two nannies discovered the body of 16-year-old-son Jett around 10 a.m. Friday. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.

Kathrein was scandalously photographed by paparazzi touching lips with Travolta in 2006, fueling speculation that he was Travolta’s gay lover.

On his blog, he describes himself as a photographer. He mostly seems to do wedding and maternity shots.

Oh well…as if Italians don’t kiss each other… We really don’t know why the National Enquirer even bothered printing it.

We at the Daily Contributor don’t care about John’s sexual preference. We are more concerned about Jeff’s qualifications for childcare — particularly a child with serious medical problems.

Meanwhile, Travolta has released a statement on the death of his son on his official website. The statement reads:

“We would like to extend our deepest and most heartfelt thanks to everyone who has sent their love and condolences. Jett was the most wonderful son that two parents could ever ask for and lit up the lives of everyone he encountered.”

“We are heartbroken that our time with him was so brief. We will cherish the time we had with him for the rest of our lives. We have received many messages of condolence from around the world and we want to thank everyone for their prayers and support. It has meant so much to us. It is a beautiful reminder of the inherent goodness in the human spirit that gives us a hope for a brighter future. With love, John, Kelly, and Ella.”
