John Travolta is reportedly still struggling to come to terms with the loss of his wife Kelly Preston, who passed away in July 2020 after battling breast cancer for several years.
According to sources, the actor has vowed to never date or enter into a relationship with another woman again after losing his wife of almost two decades.
A source told RadarOnline.com, “John still considers himself married and says he will stay loyal to Kelly until the day he dies. He talks about Kelly constantly. Their lives were so intertwined, it’s very hard for him to go on.”
The insider added, “It’s hands off when it comes to dating. As far as he is concerned, Kelly will always be the only woman for him. It’s sad, but he’s essentially taken a vow of celibacy for the rest of his life. He simply can’t wrap his head around ever falling in love again. He says it would be a betrayal of Kelly’s memory.”
Travolta’s focus is now on his children, and the source shared that “The kids are everything to him. If it weren’t for them, it’s hard to know what he’d do.”
However, it’s not just Kelly’s death that has left him heartbroken. The source revealed that the actor is still mourning the loss of his son Jett, who passed away in 2009.
“He talks about wanting to be reunited with them in the next lifetime,” the source said.
Following Kelly’s death last year, Travolta took to social media to share the news and pay tribute to his wife.
In his post, he expressed gratitude to the doctors and nurses who helped his wife during her illness, as well as her loved ones who stood by her side.
Travolta added, “Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered. I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while. But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal. All my love, JT.”
Fans of the late actress have also been offering their condolences and support to Travolta.
One fan from the Netherlands wrote, “My condolences by the loss of your beloved wife, John. Stay strong.” Another added, “What a beautiful soul she must have been and still is. Sending lots of love and hugs.”
