John Travolta

The 'Massage' Lawsuit

Is Total B.S.

John Travolta says the lawsuit claiming he sexually assaulted a masseur is a total lie ... and that he was 2,475 miles from the place it supposedly happened.

Travolta's rep tells TMZ ... John was on the East Coast the day the masseur claims John got on the massage table and, among other things, allegedly grabbed the guy's penis and then masturbated.

The statement says, "This lawsuit is a complete fiction and fabrication.  None of the events claimed in the suit ever occurred."

The statement notes, the masseur didn't disclose his name in the lawsuit -- he sued as "John Doe."

John is confident he will get the case thrown out and will sue the attorney and the masseur for malicious prosecution.

the only way Mr. Doe has a chance here is if he can provide video evidence....

You guys who are in denial -- have you ever seen the A-List (it was all the dirt on various celebrities). It was on Alt.gossip.celebrities about 15 years ago. I saved it onto a word doc. Here's what it said about JohnT.

Do any of you guys remember the A-List?? This goes back 15 years: it was on Alt.gossip. celebrities
Travolta, John. Reportedly a nice man, but $cientologist and disingenuous about it. Reportedly a closet queen. Never graduated from high school. Difficult to work with. Linked with Richard Gere, Marilu Henner, Hugh Jackman (well, if so, John's got good taste in men, at least.) Olivia Newton-John, Kelly Preston (his wife and fellow $cientologist), Brooke Shields, and Debra Winger.

This guys story may be BS but that does seems to be Travolta's MO...hitting on male massage therapists so he has made himself a target.

I think using John Doe is cowardly. If this masseuse wants to be taken seriously he needs to grow some balls and use his own name. Or does he have a hit list clients or so called clients he wants to tackle, and Travolta is first on the list.
Or is his name mud and there are too many people out there willing to back Travolta, based on their experiences with the cough, sputter, poor masseuse.

Some people have no morals and this idiot just wants money. Don't believe a word of his garbage. Never heard a bad word about John Travolta being difficult or egotistical; leave him alone.

This is a reoccurring item. This guy is gay, he knows it, Kelly knows it. Who the f cares? My only problem is is that he isn't honest.

FYI I read this comment on Celebichy: There’s a theory going around that Travolta himself is behind this sudden rash of stories, that he wants out of his marriage and out of Scientology, and has therefore given his blessing to media outlets to confirm the rumors that have been going around forever anyway.

Perhaps after the tragic death of his son, he wants to live an honest and open life.

Wow wouldn't this be something if it were true.

Why would some one make up such a story? Lets see if any money is paid out.

THE TRUTH HURTS. This, like all the other stories in H-wood about John's homosexuality, is 100% true. The issue for John and his PR machine is that usually they're able to make sure his conquests never talk -- for various reasons -- some are star struck, others get paid off, and the rest are just gay and sleep around - whether it be with John Travolta or John Doe. In this case, this particular person truly was not impressed, wasn't interested and felt attacked. But make no mistake about it, John Travolta is gay. I like some of his work, and yes, he's a terribly nice man, but gay nonetheless. K. Preston has gone through he11 and back living a lie and trying to hold it all together. He's becoming reckless, so there's definitely some big changes coming. Remember this post when you hear some big news about John & Kelly. We in the industry have known this for YEARS.

Now we know why he flys his own jet, so he can be anywhere at any time. West coast in the am, east coast by noon.
