John Travolta Accused of Assault & Sexual BatteryIn May 2012, a John Doe male masseur filed a suit that John Travolta - one of Hollywood's most gossiped-about triple threats / Scientologists - tried to bed him after he was hired to do a massage. The suit for assault and sexual battery claims:
Travolta touched his scrotum and penis after having stripped in front of the masseur. ... [Travolta] continued to pursue the idea of sex with the man and later suggested that they have sex with a "Hollywood starlet in the building that wanted to have three-way sex and to be double penetrated. ... The star said he "got where he is now due to sexual favors he had performed when he was in his 'Welcome Back, Kotter' days."Travolta's team of Scientologist publicists called the allegations a complete fabrication.
But wait - this was only the beginning. Just 5 days later, another masseur piled on more accusations of assault, sexual battery, and also sexual harassment and infliction of emotional distress. This second plaintiff alleged that he was asked to do an in-room massage in an Atlanta hotel... and things got graphic:
John Doe No. 2 claims that Travolta had a "strange demeanor" and his eyes were bloodshot when he walked into the room, undressed and climbed on the table. The actor then, per the suit, pushed the sheet away, complaining that it was "sticky."
The complaint states that Travolta then proceeded to ask the masseur to pay special attention to his buttocks during the rub-down. The plaintiff claims that Travolta had an erection and-- I have to stop there. The rest of the report gets very NSFW. Read more saucy details here.
Travolta's PR machine went into overdrive defending the singer-dancer. TMZ reportedly obtained evidence that Travolta was in New York, not Los Angeles, on the day that John Doe #1 said he grabbed his junk. The proof comes in the form of an undated kinda blurry could-be-anywhere photograph and an unsigned restaurant bill with a large tip on it.
What do you say: Is Travolta off the hook? Or where there's smoke, there are flames? Is this the face of a guilty man?l< << PREV 1 of 10 NEXT >>
