Controversial Celebrity Parents

John Travolta and Kelly Preston

John Travolta and Kelly Preston, who are open about their extreme devotion to Scientology, reportedly practiced the ritual of a “silent birth” during the delivery of their third child in 2010. Preston did not talk or scream while giving birth to baby Benjamin. The pair reportedly forbade doctors from running medical tests on or speaking to the baby for seven days. Scientologists do not traditionally believe in the use of antibiotics or anti-psychotic drugs, a decision that Travolta and Preston were heavily criticized for in the case of their late son Jett, who was believed to have suffered from Kawasaki disease. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Toby Canham/Getty Images)
