John Travolta sued for sexually harassing male masseur
An anonymous male masseur is suing John Travolta for sexual harassment, alleging that he has “proof” the actor tried to have sex with him during a massage session.
According to papers filed in a Los Angeles court and obtained by TMZ, “John Doe” says that the “Grease” actor touched his legs and genitals and made unwanted sexual advances toward him.
The suit alleges that Travolta responded to an online advertisement for massage services and picked up the masseur in a black SUV, driving him to the actor’s private bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Travolta allegedly took off all of his clothes and rubbed the plaintiff’s legs and genitals. The masseur, an aspiring actor, told Travolta that he would not have sex with his clients. Travolta supposedly told the man that the only way he would make it in Hollywood is if he performed sexual favors.
“Hollywood is controlled by homosexual Jewish men who expect favors in return for sexual activity,” Travolta allegedly said.
Travolta then masturbated in front of the masseur, offered him a “reverse massage” and said, “Come on dude, I’ll jerk you off.”
In a statement to E! News, Travolta’s lawyers say that the claims are fiction: “This lawsuit is 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.”
The statement continues, “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 Doe told RadarOnline on Tuesday that he has “proof to support the truth that I’m telling” but would not reveal any specifics.
In 2010, Los Angeles-based interior designer Robert Randolph wrote explicitly about Travolta’s supposed secret gay sex life in his book, “You’ll Never Spa In This Town Again.”
Randolph said that starting in 1995, he saw the actor engage in countless sex acts in an L.A. bathhouse. According to Randolph, “everyone in L.A.” knows that Travolta has gay encounters.
Travolta has been married to actress Kelly Preston since 1991 and the couple had three children together, but their eldest son, Jett, died from a seizure in 2009. They welcomed a son, Benjamin, in 2011. Travolta and Preston are devout Scientologists — a religion that strictly opposes homosexuality,
