Kelly Preston remembered by Demi Moore with sweet throwback photo playing around with daughter Rumer

DEMI Moore has paid tribute to her longtime friend Kelly Preston with a sweet throwback photo.

Kelly, who was married to John Travolta, passed away at the age of 57 on Sunday following a battle with breast cancer.

Actress Demi Moore published a photo on Instagram to remember her "beautiful" and "kind" friend.

The image shows Demi with her then-husband Bruce Willis and their daughter Rumer, together with Kelly and her husband Travolta.

The caption reads: "The world has lost one of the most beautiful, kind, generous, tender-loving souls that has graced this earth.


"Rest easy @therealkellypreston, we will miss you."

In the photo, Bruce Willis was holding daughter Rumer while Kelly playfully nibbled on the tot's feet.

Moore and Travolta are smiling in the background of the picture.

Preston is survived by Travolta, 66, whom she married in 1991, and their kids Ella, 20, and Benjamin, 9.

The couple also had son Jett, who died at 16 after suffering a seizure in 2009.

Travolta paid tribute to his wife's "courageous fight" as he revealed that she had battled the disease for two years, but chose to keep her illness private.

Sharing the sad news, John, 66, wrote on Instagram: "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.


"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."

And the couple's daughter, Ella Bleu Travolta, wrote on Instagram: "I have never met anyone as courageous, strong, beautiful and loving as you.

"Anyone who is lucky enough to have known you or to have ever been in your presence will agree that you have a glow and a light that never ceases to shine and that makes anyone around you feel instantly happy. Thank you for being there for me no matter what.

"Thank you for your love. Thank you for your help and thank you for making this world a better place. You have made life so beautiful and I know you will continue to do so always. I love you so much mama."

She once said "love your kids like it could be your last moment".

While Kelly was posing for the cover of Health magazine in 2011 with then baby Ben, she said: "I've always wanted to be a mother, ever since I was 11."

"I absolutely adore my kids. Johnny and I look up to them constantly."

Kelly made her last Instagram post on June 22.

Sharing a smiling selfie of her and John, 66, with their kids Ella, 20, and Ben, nine, Kelly wrote: "Happy Father’s Day to the best one I know, we love you."

Travolta and Preston met in 1988 when they appeared together in a film called The Experts.

They married in Paris on September 5, 1991.

The American actress, who starred in Twins alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito, secretly battled cancer for two years.

A family representative said in a statement: "On the morning of July 12, 2020, Kelly Preston, adored wife and mother, passed away following a two-year battle with breast cancer.

"Choosing to keep her fight private, she had been undergoing medical treatment for some time, supported by her closest family and friends.

"She was a bright, beautiful and loving soul who cared deeply about others and who brought life to everything she touched.

"Her family asks for your understanding of their need for privacy at this time."
