John Travolta Leaving Clearwater, ‘Breaking Away’ From Church Of Scientology?

John Travolta has been associated with the Church of Scientology since the ’70s. Over the last couple of years, many tabloids have alleged the Pulp Fiction star was ready to leave the religion. Gossip Cop has investigated a lot of these reports, so let’s look back at a few of them and see if we can figure out where Travolta and the church stand.

Leaving The Church Over Wife’s Death?

Soon after the death of his wife, Kelly Preston, In Touch claimed Travolta was contemplating leaving the organization. Noting that the actor was trying to stay strong for his kids, the tabloid somehow jumped to the conclusion that he was done with the religion without any evidence to support the claim besides the word of a Scientology critic. Gossip Cop rightfully wrote the whole thing off as speculation to sell magazines. 

The same outlet reiterated its claims that Travolta was leaving Scientology back in February. This time, its reasoning cited Travolta’s statement announcing Preston’s death, where he thanked the hospital staff. The public acknowledgment of the medical community meant Travolta was slighting the church — at least, it did in the eyes of the tabloid. As if an absurd line of thinking wasn’t enough for Gossip Cop to deem the story false, a rep for the actor also confirmed our suspicions. 

Selling His Home Means Leaving The Church?

In late June, In Touch was back with another article centering around Travolta and Scientology. This time, he was allegedly leaving because he listed his Clearwater home. The Florida town is where Scientology is based, and Travolta’s departure meant the organization had to worry about their most famous member spilling the church’s secrets amidst its multiple lawsuits. The outlet suggested the actor was willing to divulge information to the plaintiffs in cases ranging from exploiting children to perpetuating violence against members in its Sea Org branch to money laundering in Australia. Gossip Cop noted that separation between church and star was unlikely to happen anytime soon because it hadn’t happened the two previous times the publication suggested it. 

Walking Away Would Bring Him Closure?

A few weeks ago, New Idea claimed Travolta planned to officially break away from the church. Jumping aboard the narrative, the publication suggested that turning on the church would give the actor closure in his wife’s death. Gossip Cop pointed out that this was highly unlikely as Travolta has spoken about how the church got him through the death of his son, Jett. 

Of course, the tabloids were wrong about every single story. Travolta is still very much involved in Scientology and hasn’t turned on the church yet.

Will And Jada Pinkett Smith ‘Hoping’ Their Vacation Can ‘Reignite That Spark’ In Their Marriage?

It’s been over one year since the fabled Red Table Talk where Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith discussed their open relationship. It was a major celebrity moment of last year, and it obviously led to a slew of tabloid articles trying to capitalize on the situation. Gossip Cop investigated one such story exactly 365 days ago that said the Smiths’ vacationing in the Bahamas was a desperate move to soothe the marriage. Let’s look back on that story.

The Table Talk

After years of rumors, Jada Pinkett Smith brought herself to Red Table Talk to discuss her “entanglement” with August Alsina, a rapper and friend of Jaden Smith. She and WIll discussed their period of separation before ultimately deciding that their futures were with each other.

According to Star, the real way to save the marriage was to fly to the Bahamas. A so-called “friend” said, “They’re hoping the trip helps reignite that spark.” Life & Style ran an almost identical story, with its insider saying the trip was “a last-ditch effort to save their marriage.”

These stories were pretty much impossible thanks to COVID-19. The Bahamas were closed to U.S. visitors at the time, and Smith was visibility still in California on his Instagram. It was a quick way to capitalize on the Red Table Talk, and it had no basis in reality.

How Are Will And Jada Pinkett Doing?

Since that fabled interview, the Smiths appear to be doing pretty well. Will’s returned to Red Table Talk on four separate occasions, and the Facebook series took home an Emmy Award. The family celebrated together.

Other Tall Tales

The Bahamas is almost a mythical location for tabloids. It’s where Prince Charles’ love child lives, and it also saved the marriage of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. It was even the location of Leonardo DiCaprio’s wedding. None of these stories were remotely true. If you see the Bahamas in a tabloid, it’s likely used as a stock idyllic spot for whatever nonsense the magazine can come up with.

As for Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, the tabloids have not relented in their bogus divorce coverage. They’re apparently secretly separated and are going their separate ways despite the fact that they’re clearly committed to each other. The Red Table Talk was a shocking bit of gossip, but it only exists because Willa and Jada Pinkett Smith have chosen to stay together in the first place. They didn’t need the Bahamas to reach that decision either.
