A spokesperson for John Travolta has denied the star rushed home from Australia because his wife Kelly Preston went into labour.

The spokesperson told People magazine on Sunday: "This story is 100 per cent false.

"She's not in labour. John is en route back to the US as was always the plan for him to return this weekend."

A Channel 7 representative, however, confirmed that Travolta had every intention to attend Telethon in Perth at the weekend but the reason for his return home was not Preston's labour.

"We were told he was returning for 'family' reasons, we were never told it was because she had gone into labour," she said.

Travolta was in Australia last week to celebrate the 90th birthday of Qantas, for which he is a goodwill ambassador, and planned to attend Telethon in Perth on Sunday.
