Travolta trial: The guy who talked is sorry, and he's shutting up now

October 27, 2009 |  4:38 pm
Bahamas"Injury, meet Insult. Insult, this is Injury. And I think you've both met John Travolta and Kelly Preston? Oh, you have? More than once? Hmm, so sorry."

After the unexpected death of their son, Jett, in the Bahamas and the criminal allegations that followed, it seemed only fair that almost regardless of the verdict, grieving parents Travolta and Preston deserved closure in the trial of those accused of trying to extort $25 million.

Didn't happen.

Now the Bahamian official who caused a mistrial by speaking too soon wants to say he's sorry, E! Online reports.

"My statements were reckless and interfered with the course of justice in that case and were further capable of bringing disrepute to the whole administration of justice," Picewell Forbes said at a news conference Tuesday morning. 

Thing is, Forbes is now facing some related legal issues of his own, as E! has rounded up, so he took no questions.

Technically, yeah, that's saying you're sorry. And it's always nice when a person apologizes, right?

But for some, it's probably going to be more satisfying to find out what the real verdict will be -- in the retrial, which Travolta is seeking to have brought to the U.S.
