This consistent and constantly growing — if not always flattering — representation across nearly all networks has helped humanize gay people for mainstream America, according to gay rights organizations."

Gay Author Sues John Travolta For Libel Over Mental Health Claims

TravoltaBWJohn Travolta has more gay scandal brewing, for an author who wrote about alleged trysts with the actor is now suing Travolta for libel.

From the Chicago Tribune:

Robert Randolph claimed that Travolta and his attorney Martin Singer spread false statements about his mental health in 2010 in a bid to dissuade the public from buying his planned book. His is seeking unspecified damages in the legal action filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Singer called Randolph's lawsuit "absurd," saying it was based on a private letter to the publisher of a gossip blog and "was completely privileged under the law".

"We intend to sue the attorneys for malicious prosecution after the court promptly dismisses this baseless lawsuit," Singer said in a statement.

The paper reports that Randolph's book, called You'll Never Spa In This Town Again, was published in February of this year, just before two masseurs claimed Travolta assaulted them during massage sessions.


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...
