John Travolta's teenage son died of a seizure, according to a death certificate issued by Bahamian officials.

Early reports had suggested that Jett, who passed away on January 2, suffered a seizure and hit his head on a bath tub while on vacation with his family in the Bahamas.

Glen Campbell, the assistant director of the local funeral home, said that the body was "in great condition" and showed no signs of head trauma. He revealed that the death certificate, which has not been released, had recorded the cause of death as "seizure".

Travolta and wife Kelly Preston previously stated that the 16-year-old had a history of seizures and suffered from Kawasaki disease, a condition that causes inflammation of the blood vessels.

A funeral is expected to take place later this week in Florida.
