John Travolta Wife Walks; Cross-Dressing Photos Surface

John Travolta as Edna Turnblad in 2007 movie Hairspray

John Travolta certainly has no trouble getting in touch with his feminine side. New photos have surfaced showing him dress like a woman complete with makeup, amid reports his wife has walked out.

Travolta appears in full drag wearing a dress, earrings, a bra and a necklace in full makeup. The photos, which have been published by The National Enquirer, were not for a movie part.

The magazine also claims that Travolta’s wife of 20 years, actress Kelly Preston, has walked out on him over the gay sex scandal.

The photos are reportedly from a party the 58-year-old actor attended in Los Angeles in 1997, six years after marrying actress Kelly Preston.

“She’s put up with John’s double life for decades while his behavior remained in the shadows,” a friend told the magazine. “But all this coming out in public has humiliated her. Kelly is absolutely destroyed.”

Travolta famously played Edna Turnblad, the mother of heroine Tracy Turnblad in the hit 2007 film version of “Hairspray,” about a 1950s-era television dance show that in confronted by the breakdown of segregation in Baltimore City.

For the part, he dressed as a woman, but said during interviews it had no bearing on his sexuality. He said if had starred in a movie like “Brokeback Mountain,” about gay characters in conservative southwest, that would be a different matter.

The latest revelation comes amid a lurid gay sex scandal. Travolta is being accused by two masseurs of sexually fondling them during massages. Both have hired celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred.

The new photos might not be so sensational except for the fact that Travolta’s lawyer Martin Singer, keeps heatedly denying is a homosexual or engaged in any in appropriate sexual acts.
