The following year, Travolta and wife Kelly Preston welcomed son Benjamin, now 10, and the brood suffered another tragic loss when Preston died from breast cancer at age 57 in July 2020.

"It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer. She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many," the father-of-three wrote in a statement. "My family and I will forever be grateful to her doctors and nurses at MD Anderson Cancer Center, all the medical centers that have helped, as well as her many friends and loved ones who have been by her side. Kelly's love and life will always be remembered."

The Hairspray star has credited Scientology for helping him work through his grief, but as OK! has reported, he isn't looking for love right now.

"John's had no shortage of friends wanting to set him up and there are a lot of women who would love to go out with him," an insider shared. "John is flattered, but he just isn't interested."

"No one wants to push him because they understand he's torn between opening himself up to love again and staying single and being the best father he can be," added the source. "Until John can figure things out, everyone is giving him the space he needs."
