Yesterday, John Travolta shared a heart-wrenching wife for Kelly Preston. "She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many". She shared a heartfelt post and penned that she has never met anyone as fearless, strong, beautiful, caring and loving like her mom. "Her family asks her to understand her need for privacy at this time".

"Kelly was a radiant, warm and gentle spirit: a loving and devoted wife, mother and sweet friend", the "Physical" singer said in the statement to Entertainment Tonight. "My coronary heart breaks for John, Ella and Ben. Xox", Olivia, who is now living with stage four cancer, penned alongside a throwback photo of the pair. What a attractive and unbelievable actress and person. She found the joy in life.

Rita Wilson shared a photo with the late actress, captioning her post: "Such a lovely soul, sparkling eyes exuding kindness and strength".

One of Preston's final Instagram posts was a tribute to Travolta, and it featured a picture of Jett looking lovingly at his dad.


Left to ideal: Olivia Newton-John, John Travolta and Kelly Preston. "I love you so much mama". "May She Rest In Peace". I was lucky enough to star with her and direct her, and her talent was off the charts. No words can express my sorrow for her family.

Oklahoma country music star Toby Keith paid homage on Twitter today to his one-time co-star Kelly Preston, who died Sunday. She first tackled acting in 2009 and appeared in Old Dogs, alongside her dad and the late Robin Williams. Such a lovely person. In 1995 we auditioned together for Breaking Up; Salma Hayek got that gig.

"I'm just sorry that I hadn't seen her recently because I wanted to tell how much I've started to hear from people who said, "You know".

A rep for the family members explained to Individuals magazine that Preston chose to maintain her breast most cancers fight out of the public spotlight.


Preston died at the age 57 on Sunday after a personal struggle with breast cancer.

Baldwin wrote: "How tragic and sad about Kelly Preston". I shot CAT IN THE HAT with her some years back. She would work with Schwarzenegger again in 1992 in the Tales From the Crypt episode "The Switch", one of The Governator's only two directorial credits. "My heart goes out to John Travolta and the entire family". The singer is heartbroken to learn the news of her demise.

The couple's 20-year-old daughter Ella also shared an emotional tribute over the loss of Preston: "I have never met anyone as courageous, strong, beautiful, and loving as you".

Preston, who also starred in films such as "Mischief" and "Twins", was married to Travolta for almost 30 years and they have a daughter, Ella, and son, Benjamin.


Demi Moore uploaded a touching throwback photo of their families.
