John Travolta Refutes Sexual Assault Accusations – As Another Accuser Comes Forward.

Team Travolta is refuting accusations that the actor sexually assaulted a male massage therapist in a room at the Beverly Hills Hotel...saying he wasn't even in California at the time. Now, another accuser has filed suit as well.

Team Travolta is refuting accusations that the actor sexually assaulted a male massage therapist in a room at the Beverly Hills Hotel…saying he wasn’t even in California at the time. But now, a second accuser has come forward to file charges.

An unidentified man is suing the 58 year old actor for $2 million in punitive damages.

Travolta’s rep told 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.”

The accused claims Travolta made unwanted sexual advances while in a private bungalow during a Jan. 16, 2012, massage appointment.  Travolta’s rep says the actor will get the case thrown out and then sue the attorney and Plaintiff for malicious prosecution.

TMZ has the lawsuit documents here. (Lots of adult content, so be forewarned!)

The suit cliams that Travolta saw the masseur’s ad online, and scheduled an appointment for $200 an hour. The masseur then met up with a black Lexus SUV, driven by Travolta. (The masseur claims he did not know it was going to be Travolta when the appointment was booked.)

The accusations only get more graphic from there… Yes, Travolta has faced allegations of homosexuality before, but these do get a little hard to believe, especially when the accuser alleged that Travolta then told him that he credits some of his career success due to sexual favors given to TV execs during his “Welcome Back Kotter” days. That sounds like a strange thing to say while trying to get a massage therapist to get intimate with you. That said, it seems like a lot of effort to hire a lawyer and sue if none of it were true. (Unless they were hoping to get away with a big settlement before things got out.)

MEANWHILE…. Gawker is now reporting that another accuser, this one a masseur in Atlanta, is making similar claims. The lawsuit has been filed by the same attorney from the first claim, and again, the Travolta camp is promising to debunk the accusations and then sue the accuser.

Additional, graphic details on what the masseur claims happened that night can be found HERE. 

As we mentioned above, in the case of the first incident, Travolta’s team turned to geography to dispute the claim, but this second accuser, based in Atlanta is yet to be disputed geographically. Gawker reports that Travolta was in fact in that city when the alleged incident took place (in late January) shooting a movie.

Doe Plaintiff No. 2 claims to have “substantial documentation and numerous witnesses regarding the substance of Travolta’s actions.” Both accusers are represented by the same attorney, Okorie Okorcha, and both are seeking at least $2 million dollars in damages. 

So… where do you fall in the ‘is he or is he’ category??

  • John Travolta – please don’t settle or offer one penny to these men. Shame on these gold diggers! Even if Travolta had made advancements towards them, if they repudiated his advancements, will someone please explain to me how they were harm? Unless he forced himself on these robust men, and suppressed their will – in other words molested them unwillingly, then I could see the legitimacy of their claims. However, in reviewing their claims, I don’t see that there is anything out of the ordinary that men and women do. Men and Women express interest in each other all the time – that is how relationships are started; but if one of the parties says that “I am not interested,” and the interested party retreats, there hasn’t been any harm. This is normal behavior – regardless of your sexual orientation; yielding to their proposition for a settlement, will only open doors for all wealthy and celebrities to be sued for a simple hand shake. I am appalled that someone would waste time with these kinds of claims. However, I know that unscrupulous lawyers are expected to represent people like these men. Unless these men really suffered a physical assault in a sexual way, then I don’t believe that they are entitled to money. This statement is coming from a poor person too – where I am most of the time with a zero balance in my checking account. I just believe that people should do the right things in life. Celebrities and wealthy people have to solicit services from ordinary people. Can you imagine that if every person that they engage in business would transactions, would launch frivolous law suits against them; how harmful this can be to all of us, should the courts set a precedence for this kind of conduct?
