"[John]'s broken up. He just had to tell Ella a minute ago," family friend Michael McDermott told the Ocala (Fla.) Star-Banner on Friday, adding that "Kelly's very quiet."

"Just say a prayer for them," McDermott added. "That's all you can do at this point."

A Royal Bahamas Police Department spokesperson said Jett, who had a history of seizures, likely hit his head on the bathtub. An autopsy is being performed to determine the cause of death.
