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.

Did you check out the background of this massager. Ruining a mans reputation because someone said so is bad reporting. All your doing is looking for money and publicity.

Probably did happen but this guy is using this situation for a pay day. Most of these online male massages are for gay trysts and the masseuse would know what he's getting into before hand. JT got sloppy on this particular one but there's probably hundreds of others where he got what he wanted. The guy would have tried to extort him before hand but JT decided to let this one get blown out of proportion. Check his plane log and I'll bet you'd find he was in town?

Travolta is known for being a closeted gay in Hollywood. It is the worst kept secret. Other people have made similar claims if you do your research. Why is he lying to himself and the world? I would have more respect for him if he would come out already! this isn't 50's Hollywood and he is no Rock Hudson

This is sooo true, I met some hotel Masseur a year ago who works at one of NYC top hotels and said the same thing about John. He wants only gay men giving him Massages in return for favors. Its sad that a married man has to embarrass his family in such a way. But the facts are out.

I tend to believe this. There is just too much out there about Travolta and his gay tendencies. Who cares if he's gay, but he's crossing the line making UNWANTED advances to someone.

John is very Gay, he had was gay during Greese, even made some 'Greese Lighting' with Jeff Conaway, and admitted himself that he WAS gay until Scientology 'cured' him. I'm very taken back by how many people actually didn't this.

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 !

Will Smith, John Travolta - what is wrong with these down low men? If he wanted a masseur, they will come to your home, Especially when you have his kind of money, stars have them on call like hairdressers. There's never a reason to go onling to find a masseur unless you are looking for something extra.

I'm not sure why Travolta and Cruise just don't come out. Everybody knows they are gay & who really cares anyway? Marrying beards and having children is not fooling anybody.

As for TC, what hetro man goes on Oprah, jumps on an effing couch does a backflip and declares "I love Kate Homes". Geez...tone it down if you expect the rest of the hetro world to believe you really like the opposite sex.
