John Travolta's Alleged Former Gay Lover Responds to Comments That His Lawsuit Is Motivated by 'Money'

Travolta

John Travolta's alleged ex-lover is responding to the actor's recent comments that the former employee's lawsuit against Travolta is "just about people wanting money."

In July, a California appeals court judge ruled Travolta can no longer stop Douglas Gotterba from telling his side of the story. Gotterba claims that his working relationship with the actor turned into a six-year affair when he was employed by Travolta’s aircraft company Alto in the 1980s. 

The Daily Mail reports:

Responding to Travolta's comments, Gotterba said: 'What John Travolta said about me in a recent interview is an inaccurate description of what our court case is about. 

'Our dispute is purely about declaratory relief and will be a non-monetary judgement. This is about the truth and my right for a court to decide who is telling the truth, not for Mr Travolta to make a judgement.'

The paper adds that, according to Travolta's attorneys, Gotterba had asked for $10 million to settle the case out of court.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, John Travolta has addressed allegations by a male former employee that they had a six year affair.

In July, a California appeals court judge ruled Travolta can no longer stop Douglas Gotterba from telling his side of the story. 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.

While discussing Travolta’s latest movie The Forger, interviewer Marlo Stern asks the actor about the allegations.  Travolta replies:

“This is every celebrity’s Achilles heel. It’s just about people wanting money. That’s all. It happens on many levels.

Also, I don’t care that much about it. Other people may attack it back more than I do, but I let all the media stuff go a long time ago because I can’t control it. I think that’s why it persists, to some degree.

I found [the allegations] most offensive with the loss of my son. I felt like that was the lowest I’d ever felt. Sex stuff is always going to be interesting to somebody, but you stay away from family. You really should. With that, I always felt like the media—not all of the media, but parts of it—went too low there.”

John Travolta's Alleged Former Gay Lover Can Tell His Story: VIDEO

Travolta

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.”
