Stories that John Travolta has propositioned his masseurs exploded over the Internet over the last two days. Well, him being gay is a rumor that has been around forever, but now that serious allegations of harassment are being pointed at him, the rumors are taking an ugly turn. A masseur is currently trying to sue Travolta for $2 million, for inappropriate sexual contact, saying that Travolta booked the masseur for a $200-an-hour massage appointment and then proceeded to grope him. He then, allegedly, suggested he be allowed to give the masseur a “reverse massage,” and said, “Come on dude, I’ll j— you off!!!”
Soon after, a second lawsuit emerged from another masseur in Atlanta, claiming even more inappropriate sexual conduct which included a lot more “glutes work.” While we’re waiting to hear about what Travolta’s team has to say about this second allegation, they’re already working hard on dismissing the first one, with a spokesperson saying, “This lawsuit is a complete fiction and fabrication. None of the events claimed in the suit ever occurred. The plaintiff, who refuses to give their name, knows that the suit is a baseless lie. It is for that reason that the plaintiff hasn’t been identified with a name, even though it is required to do so.”
Perhaps this bit of information from TMZ will help their case more. The first masseur says that the harassment went down at the Beverly Hills hotel in L.A., but the site has photographs of Travolta the same day that the supposed man-handling went down … in New York. Can’t be in two places at the same time, right? The photograph is dated January 16, and TMZ also has a receipt totaling $382 with the addition of a $100 tip paid by Travolta, the same day, at Mr. Chow, also in New York. How about that? This stuff could completely alter this suit! The second case details that the dirty business went down 12 days later, on January 28 in Atlanta, so we’re waiting to see what defense pops up from the actor’s team about that. Photographic evidence is pretty hard to refute.
