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.

According to a post on Flightaware, it seems Mr. Travolta was flying in his old Gulfstream IISP (N492JT) from L.A. to New York on January 16th. So John Travolta was on both coasts on the day of the lawsuit.

I knew it was BS. People who aren't out going online and propositioning a total stranger for gay sex is a story that just doesn't fly.

I like John as an actor and as far as what he does that isn't hurting other people is his own business.

I am a straight guy who says "John if your gay or bi come out, nobody really cares, we just like you.

The only real thing about the suit is that "Hollywood is controlled by homosexual Jewish men who expect favors in return for sexual activity"

Sincerity    

Whether the allegations in this lawsuit are true or not masseur, it doesn't matter because it's simply the masseur's word against John Travolta's. If this man was actually sexually assaulted, he should have filed a "police report", PERIOD!!! Instead, he has chosen to "PUBLICLY" shakedown John Travolta which says a great deal about his overall "PROFESSIONAL INTEGRITY". Being in the same room with a person is "NO INDICATION" that an assault actually occurred. I doubt if this lawsuit will make it to trial. I hope that John Travolta "DOESN'T CAVE IN" and pay this EXTORTIONIST!!!

LOL    

John has been risking his sexuality for a very long time- Risking! is the word and now it might have caught up with him-only time will tell if this is true or paid off scene. Yes it is $200 for an hour massage in california and sometime more.

The Truth    

It seems like a lot of Hollywood types are quick to defend John and "the Secret" just look how the industry accepts Roman Polanski with open arms. I believe this is true and only time will tell if more revelations come to light.

Why is this even a story? Everyone knows Travolta has been gay for years.

Its such a shame that this is news, If John is gay, he should just admit itt, there is nothing unusual about it, just dishonest!

To those who claim Travolta couldn't have done this because he was in NY at the time, please tell me why he couldn't have been in both cities on the same day. There is a restaurant receipt showing that he dined at appx 11:30pm. He could have been on a private jet shortly after the encounter, and on his way to NY.
