Actress Kelly Preston, best known for her roles in “Jerry Maguire,” “Twins,” “Mischief,” “What a Girl Wants,” and the 2003 live-adaptation of “The Cat in the Hat,” has passed away on Sunday, July 12, as announced by husband John Travolta. She was 57 years old.
Preston had been suffering from a two-year battle with breast cancer before she died.
Travolta took to social media to express his grief and to thank all those who had helped and supported her in her final moments.
“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. 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,” he said.
“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,” he added.
Travolta and Preston were married for 28 years and shared three children together.
May she rest in peace.
