A California appeals court judge ruled on Tuesday that John Travolta can no longer stop former employee and alleged former lover Douglas Gotterba from telling his side of the story, reports Entertainment Weekly.

Gotterba claims that his working relationship with the actor became more personal when he was employed by Travolta’s aircraft company Alto in the 1980s.

After Gotterba announced plans to release a book telling “the story of his life and those involved in it,” Travolta’s attorney sent the pilot cease-and-desist letters claiming Gotterba was breaching a confidentiality provision in his Alto termination agreement.

However, Gotterba and his lawyer said that the paperwork in question is inauthentic as it is an early draft of the agreement. Gotterba sought a judge’s opinion about which agreement was valid and whether or not confidentiality was enforceable.

California appeals court Presiding Justice Arthur Gilbert has now ruled in Gotterba’s favor, stating that the lawsuit was based on “the validity of the asserted termination agreements.”

Gilbert added that if Travolta had won, the decision “would lead to the absurd result that a person receiving a demand letter threatening legal action for breach of contract would be precluded from seeking declaratory relief to determine the validity of the contract. Declaratory relief would be limited to situations where the parties have not communicated their disagreement.”

    I hate to see the personal pain that this will cause Travolta’s immediate family… but, when celebrity & wealth are involved, you take the good with the bad.

    I mostly look forward to anything related to Scientology… that’ll be a whole new set of cease & desist challenges.

    Kelly Preston knows Travolta is gay. She has known since day 1.
    Why would anyone feel sympathy for her.
    She can stay buy with that (fake) baby she pretended to have a few years.

    We are way beyond the “where there’s smoke, there’s fire” level of Travolta rumors. I think it’s now, “where there’s fire, there’s fire.” As South Park noted, Cruise and Travolta are in the closet together.
