Kelly Preston dies

BANG! NEWS – Actress Kelly Preston, 57, passed away last Sunday after secretly battling breast cancer for the last two years, a spokesperson for the star and her husband John Travolta announced.

The spokesperson told People magazine, “On the morning of July 12, Kelly Preston, adored wife and mother, passed away following a two-year battle with breast cancer.

“Choosing to keep her fight private, she had been undergoing medical treatment for some time, supported by her closest family and friends.

“She was a bright, beautiful and loving soul who cared deeply about others and who brought life to everything she touched.”

As well as John, Kelly is survived by daughter Ella, 20, and nine-year-old son Benjamin.

The couple’s 16-year-old son Jett tragically died in January 2009 after suffering a seizure.

The Jerry Maguire actress’ final Instagram post was on Father’s Day last month, in which she shared a family portrait and a black and white image of the Grease star with Jett. She captioned the post: “Happy Father’s Day to the best one I know, we love you.”
