'He Was Autistic'

Testifying today in the trial of two Bahamians accused in a $25 million extortion plot against his family, John Travolta for the first time acknowledged his late son Jett's autism. The actor further testified that the disease prompted seizures in the 16-year-old every five to 10 days, usually lasting 45 minutes each. Jett had suffered such a seizure on the morning of Jan. 2; his father unsuccessfully administered CPR before medics arrived. Matters got uglier from there, prosecutors say, when the ambulance drivers attempted to strike a deal to take Travolta and family to the airport instead of the hospital. Travolta will retake the stand Thursday; the trial is expected to last three weeks. [E!]
