John Travolta

Sued By Masseur

He Touched My Penis

John Travolta has been sued by a masseur, who claims the actor tried to have sex with him during a session.

According to the lawsuit, Travolta saw the masseur's ad online, and scheduled an appointment for $200 an hour. The masseur did not know it was Travolta when the appointment was booked, but followed instructions and met up with a black Lexus SUV, which Travolta was driving. 

According to the suit, Travolta and the masseur, who says he saw Trojan condoms in the center console, drove to the Beverly Hills Hotel and went to Travolta's bungalow.

The suit claims Travolta stripped naked, appearing semi-erect. The masseur says he told Travolta to lay down on the table and the first hour went without incident. Then, according to legal docs, Travolta began rubbing the masseur's leg, touched his scrotum and the shaft of his penis. 

The masseur claims he told Travolta he did not have sex with his clients, but Travolta was undeterred, offering to do a "reverse massage," adding, "Come on dude, I'll jerk you off!!!"

The suit goes on to allege Travolta then masturbated and told the masseur he got to where he was "due to sexual favors he had performed when he was in his 'Welcome Back Kotter' days," adding "Hollywood is controlled by homosexual Jewish men who expect favors in return for sexual activity."

The masseur -- who is only listed as John Doe -- claims Travolta called him a loser, but then doubled the hourly rate and sent him on his way.

The suit seeks $2 million plus punitive damages.

Travolta's reps could not be reached for comment.

And thats the truth    

It is amazing how many people "knew John before he was famous" or "they have a friend of a friend who knows John" or there are images of John kissing a man.....lol. I do not believe any images I see as long as Photoshop is around and I have heard the "I have a friend" story way too many times. It seems to me that it may be difficult to do all of that touching while you are laying on our stomach. Isn't the masseur usually around your waist area with their hands on our shoulders and back?

It's probably BS, but like Tom Cruise, the rumors have been out there about Travolta for years and won't go away no matter what heterosexual flags he flies. He can afford to pay for discretion and doesn't need anonymous nobodies to play with. One hopes John Doe doesn't have a towel with Travolta DNA on it.

I doubt he will win this case. Since there are no witnesses to the alleged sexual battery, it's basically his word against John Travolta's. Travolta might settle this suit just to make this guy go away and the guy might decide to drop the criminal charges. But since none of us were there, we don't really know who's telling the truth and who's not.

Actually sounds plausible about him being in the area on the date in question. He attended the annual G'Day USA gala on Janruary 14th, in L.A. So he would have been staying in a hotel as he does not live in L.A. The other parts of this story are so descriptive this person either has a wild imagination or is telling the truth. I don't know.

Are you kidding me? If the story is to be believed, why would Travolta be able to touch the masseur's scrotum unless the masseur was already naked? Sorry, Mr. Masseur, a professional massage therapist (who wants to keep his license) doesn't do massages in the nude.

I don't beleive it either, but I think this man has a double life. Looks like Hollywood owners (that happen to be Jewish) are getting bad habits served to them on a platter. The day of the internet where nothing is not going be said.

So why the lawsuit? Even if the solicitation did occur, the masseur refused, Travolta paid him for his services and sent him on his way - if anything really happened at all. Regardless, there is no reason for a lawsuit. This massuer just rubbed himself out of employment, permanently.

If anyone is a loser here it will be the buyer. Word of advice... if you want to do that sort of thing, it's best to appear like you're lower middle class. A similar case happened to Brett Favre. Stop showing off your money! You deserve this you !

This man is a real deviant! There are way too many stories that have surfaced through the years about bath house liaisons etc.,He has even been photographed kissing men on the mouth.
He and Kelly are living more than one huge lie...It's a fact that her latest pregnancy was fake. Can we say SURROGATE!

Words and sentences like the ones below are a giveaway that the plaintiff is lying:
-Plaintiff is informed, believes, alleges
-They knew plaintiff was particularly vulnerable to emotional distress

1. Plaintiff forgot that the chef is a witness.
2. Plaintiff never left the room when he was supposedly first confronted.
3. Plaintiff doesn’t know for sure this was Travolta or a look-a-like.
4. Plaintiff’s name should be exposed to the public as his reputation should be tarnished just the same as he did with Travolta’s by filing his lawsuit.
5. Plaintiff is hoping Travolta will settle out of court to stop the publicity.
6. Travolta isn’t going to use a middleman to set up his appointment for this massage because that brings in another witness.

If Travolta is gay or not, I don’t care but the lawsuit is all b.s.

Travolta has been playing, touching and anything else with everyone else's Pee Pee for as long as he has been in the public eye, he has just played it off real real well. Dig/connect up with some of his old stand-ins from years past and you will get the truth. They were harassed, intimidated, threatened and even run out of the business because they refused to have sex with Travolta....the closet Queen. TMZ has the means to dig for the truth if they want to use it and go after it, the truth that is.

This story sounds fishy. Why would John Travolta call for a massage from an ad in the newspaper? If it was on the up and up, why would John have to pick up the masseur? Keep us updated.

Truth hurts    

I believe the Masseur, It's true, when he was in NM at the Hemez Moutains he had a couple of dudes up at the hot springs, then he had a john doe go to his hotel room. Small town, people talk.
