Former Assistant Claims John Travolta Had Long-Term Boyfriend

JTravoltaFor those of you following the John Travolta sex scandal — you know, how he allegedly groped male massuers — here is a bit more information on the famed actor's supposed private life, via his former assistant.

"I did everything for him, including taking care of his personal and professional schedules," Joan Edwards said. "Of course I knew he was gay. It never bothered me."

Edwards, who claims to have worked for Travolta from 1978 to 1994, says Travolta had a six-year-long relationship with a male pilot named Doug Gotterba in the 1980s…

The Enquirer could not confirm the relationship, the publication notes, but did confirm Gotterba did work for the Pulp Fiction star.

Gotterba's post-Travolta boyfriend, Robert Britz tells the Enquirer Gotterba told him in detail about the relationship, and how it began to sour as Travolta gained weight.

"After a few years Doug grew apart from John sexually, and John's advances eventually started to repulse him," Britz claims.

Meanwhile, the British comedian Russell Brand has a new joke about giving Travolta a massage: "He needed it, man. He was so stiff, I'm telling you!" That's one way of putting it…
