Is John Travolta Becoming Tiger Woods of Gay Sex?

John Travolta is fast becoming the Tiger Woods of gay sex. Yet another man, the third so far, has come forward and claimed the “Grease” actor accosted him in 2009 while he was working on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship.

Fabian Zanzi, a Chilean-born ship employee, was responsible for VIP guests on the cruise ship when he met Travolta, he told South American news website ABC.es.

He said Travolta offered him $12,000 to have sex with him, but he refused. “He had something on his neck. I thought it was a fuzz. As I approached, he took off his white coat and was naked,” he said. “He hugged me and asked me to do a massage.”

Two other men, identified so far only as John Does have filed a civil suit charging the actor with sexual assault. They are seeking $2 million each.

The case brings to mind the Tiger Woods sex scandal, because the golfer’s alleged mistresses stepped forward one-by-one after news broke that he was having an affair with New York party girl Rachel Uchitel.

In all, more than a dozen women came forward to claim they had sex with the golfer during his marriage to Swedish beauty Elin Nordegren, including the 22-year-old daughter of Woods’ next door neighbor.

By the same token, three men have now alleged Travolta tried to have sex with them. Lawyer Okorie Okorocha, who is representing the John Does, said yesterday he has received calls from more than 100 men who tell similar stories, according to radaronline.

“I’ve been getting a lot of phone calls from a lot of men in the massage industry who have the same allegations, the same stories, who come up with facts that my other clients haven’t mentioned. There’s a lot of people coming out of the woodwork…. I’m going to be add more plaintiffs to the lawsuits,” he said.

Travolta’s lawyer, Marty Singer, has strenuously denied the two initial claims. So far, he has yet to comment on the latest claims.

In the first instance, Singer has produced restaurant receipts and airline receipts that prove Travolta was in New York on January 16, the date when the first reported sex assault took place.

The flight records show Travolta landed in Westchester, NY, hours before sunrise on the day John Doe #1 claims the alleged sexual harassment took place in Los Angeles, according to The New York Daily News.
