Kelly Preston, an actress known for her role as a hardhearted fiancée of the Tom Cruise character in the 1996 film “Jerry Maguire,” died Sunday at 57.
The cause was breast cancer, her husband, the actor John Travolta, said in an Instagram post on Monday.
“It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer,” he wrote. “She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many.”
In addition to her husband, Ms. Preston is survived by their daughter, Ella Bleu; and a son, Benjamin. Their eldest son, Jett, 16, died in 2009 after having a seizure.
