John Travolta Gay Sex Assault Lid Blows Off Case Again

John Travolta’s John Does are apparently revamping their legal strategy now that Hollywood super lawyer Gloria Allred has stepped into the case. It looks like more trouble for the Grease star.

In a series of legal maneuvers, John Doe No. 2 fired his attorney Okorie Okorocha and took steps to withdraw his federal lawsuit after hiring Allred.

The Hollywood lawyer is a veteran of celebrity sex scandals involving Tiger Woods, porn actress Ginger Lee and actor Herman Cain.

Ocorocha dropped John Doe No. 1 as a client after the masseur gave the wrong date for the alleged sexual assault. Allred stepped in to represent him, and his case has taken off again.

It seemed for a moment that Travolta’s lawyer Marty Singer had things all wrapped up after Doe No. 1 dropped his case and Doe No. 2 agreed to litigate his case in private before a judge.

That seemed to assure the lurid allegations wouldn’t play out in a drawn out public forum. Meanwhile, Singer declared victory, claiming the 58-year-old actor had been vindicated.

But Allred appears to have been behind Doe No. 2’s decision to drop his federal lawsuit.

“We believe that the lawsuit should be filed in another court and, therefore, the lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice. We will be conferring with our client regarding what will happen next in this case,” she told gossip site TMZ.

Travolta has yet to produce any evidence that the second assault on Jan. 28 at an Atlanta spa resort didn’t take place. The actor is alleged to have exposed himself and grabbing the masseur’s penis.

For the moment, Okorocha is on the outside looking in, but he says he’s received a number of calls from individuals who claimed similar experiences with the actor, so there should be plenty of clients to go around.

As for Singer, “I’m looking forward to trying the case against Gloria Allred in a court of law, not in the media,” he told TMZ. Travolta has not paid any hush money to his accusers, he added.
