The 16-year-old passed away at the family’s Bahamas home on January 2 after suffering a seizure.

According to the Daily Mail, the actor was contacted by two men who demanded “millions of dollars” in exchange for not selling the photograph to the media.

The Nassau-based Tribune reported that one of the men was a local politician.

A police source said: “‘The investigation is at an early stage. Mr Travolta is co-operating fully.”

Lawyers for Travolta confirmed that the plot was connected to his son’s death but declined to give further details, saying that they had the “utmost confidence” that the matter would be resolved soon.

“Regrettably in a time of such terrible grief there are often a few individuals who attempt to make false claims in hopes of making millions of dollars,” they added. “We will never let that happen.”
