John Travolta Reveals Heartbreaking Plan to Find Love Years After Wife’s Passing

After the death of Kelly Preston in 2020, John Travolta resisted moving on and finding new love as he didn’t want to betray the memory of his beloved wife. However, friends now suggest that the Pulp Fiction star, thriving as a single father of two, may be open to adding a new chapter to his love story with someone else.

John Travolta, the 69-year-old Hollywood legend, has been single since his wife Kelly Preston passed away at the age of 57 from cancer in 2020. The couple, who shared three children, openly expressed their love for each other, and Travolta has since grappled with the profound absence left by her loss, often expressing his enduring grief on social media.

Travolta had previously faced heartache in 2009 when Jett, his firstborn with Preston, passed away at the age of 16. The pain intensified with the loss of close friends and co-stars Olivia Newton-John in August 2022 and Kirstie Alley in December 2022.

Following these tragedies, it’s understandable that Travolta initially vowed to remain celibate, viewing any future relationship as a betrayal of Preston’s memory. A close friend revealed, “John still considers himself married and says he will stay loyal to Kelly until the day he dies. It’s hands off when it comes to dating. It’s sad, but he’s essentially taken a vow of celibacy for the rest of his life.”

Recent rumors, however, suggest a change in his stance. According to a report from Radar Online, the Saturday Night Fever star is now open to finding love again. The source claims, “John just needed to feel ready, and now he is. He knows Kelly wouldn’t want him to spend the rest of his life alone, so he’s finally allowing friends to line him up with dates.” Additionally, he is reportedly considering the help of a matchmaker.

“He’s not asking for much, just that she be kind, warm, gracious, funny, and spontaneous,” the insider shared. “And being attractive wouldn’t hurt.”

While Travolta has taken significant time to mourn and remember Preston, the rumors suggest he is now open to the idea of finding love once more.
