John Travolta Blows Off Gay Sex Scandal Allegations

John Travolta has issued a categorical, flat-out denial of new allegations contained in a second lawsuit that he tried to force a male masseur into performing gay sex acts during an in-room massage.

Through his Hollywood lawyer, Marty Singer, the actor has called “absurd and fictional” allegations he “grabbed his genitals and masturbated” during a massage on Jan. 28 at a resort hotel in Atlanta, Ga.

Singer charged that the allegations by a second “anonymous” male masseur to sue the actor for sexual harassment are “just as absurd and ridiculous as the first one.”

In both cases, the plaintiffs are only listed in court papers as John Doe, although they will have to identify themselves at some point. Courts only protect the identities of individuals if they are minors. Both plaintiffs are likely adults.

Travolta, 58, was hit yesterday by the first lawsuit, claiming the actor tried to talk the plaintiff, also a masseur, into a sex act and touched him inappropriately.

John Doe No. 2 filed a $2 million sex assault suit this morning (May 8) in Los Angeles Superior Court. He claims to have “substantial documentation and numerous witnesses regarding the substance of Travolta’s actions,” gossip site RadarOnline reported.

But Singer isn’t buying any of it. “Our client was not in LA when anonymous ‘Doe #1’ claims he interacted with John Travolta,” the actor’s lawyer said in a statement published by gossip site TMZ.

“That fact is easily provable since John Travolta was on the east coast working on a movie on the date that anonymous ‘Doe No. 1’ claims he interacted with our client,” he said.

“After we were able to establish that anonymous ‘Doe No. 1’s’ claims were totally absurd, the same attorney has now filed a claim on behalf of another plaintiff, whom he identified as ‘Doe No. 2.’

“Significantly, although the same attorney made the fabricated claim for Doe No. 1, there was never any claim made by anonymous Doe No. 2 before he filed his specious lawsuit.”

“Our client will be fully vindicated in court on both of these absurd and fictional claims,” Singer said.
