Masseur Sues John Travolta for Assault and Sexual Battery

A masseur is suing John Travolta for $2 million, TMZ reports, alleging that Travolta groped him during a session:

TravoltaThe masseur claims he told Travolta he did not have sex with his clients, but Travolta was undeterred, offering to do a "reverse massage," adding, "Come on dude, I'll jerk you off!!!"

In addition to specific sexual details about the encounter, the lawsuit also alleges that Travolta told the masseur "he got to where he was 'due to sexual favors he had performed when he was in his 'Welcome Back Kotter' days,' adding 'Hollywood is controlled by homosexual Jewish men who expect favors in return for sexual activity.'"

Travolta's reps released a statement to Entertainment Weekly:

“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. On the date when plaintiff claims John met him, John was not in California and it can be proved that he was on the East Coast. Plaintiff’s attorney has filed this suit to try and get his 15 minutes of fame. John intends to get this case thrown out and then he will sue the attorney and Plaintiff for malicious prosecution.”

John Travolta's Legal Team: Gay Allegations 'False And Outrageous

John Travolta's attorneys want Gawker to remove a post (titled "The Secret Sex Life of John Travolta") on their site that recounts, via a book by author Robert Randolph, the actor regularly engaged in sex with men at public saunas. Travolta's legal team sent a letter with the request to the website on the same day as the birth of his son. They also called allegations that he is gay “false and outrageous.”

Trav The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports:

The lawyer calls the claims "blatant defamatory lies" from a "patently unreliable source," pointing out the author previously suffered permanent brain damage, which he has acknowledged on his own website.

Singer also notes the claims "go back fifteen years, yet inexplicably, he (Randolph) has waited until now to peddle these phony tall tales."

Travolta's lawyer is demanding the immediate and permanent removal of the Randolph post and "the publication of an unequivocal and prominent retraction of the false and defamatory statements."

The full five-page letter from Travolt'as legal team is up on the Gossip Cop website.
