In 2018, Alley, while appearing on Celebrity Big Brother U.K., spoke about her fondness for the Hollywood stalwart, which extended into romantic areas.
‘I think I kissed Travolta,’ Alley said of the actor, a fellow member of the Church of Scientology. ‘I almost ran off and married John. I did love him, I still love him.
‘If I hadn’t been married I would’ve gone and married him and I would’ve been in an airplane because he has his own plane.’
Alley’s children of the actress, True, 30, and Lily, 28, issued a statement on social media Monday confirming the sad news.

They ended the statement in saying, ‘We thank you for your love and prayers and ask that you respect our privacy at this difficult time.’
