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.

Travolta's wife knows all about the accusations and whispers about her husband for years. It's no surprise to her except that, if accurate, it begs the question WHY Travolta would pick this guy up, take him to a hotel for a "massage" in the first place. He found him on the internet? Are you kidding? And then the masseur, after having the alleged suggestions made and the attempted "fondling" (it sounded like happened to me) didn't IMMEDIATELY LEAVE THE ROOM begs the larger question. This happens to this so-called "masseur" a LOT, I would imagine. I wonder why??? (He's a pro, that's why. And Travolta KNEW it - he can spot 'em.)

Ummmmmm.....why was the massuer's penis out of his pants to where Travolta could touch "his scrotum and the shaft of his penis"?

No way did this happen, no way...this "John Doe" is full of crap and in turn is trying for his 15 min. of fame at the expense of a family that's already suffered enough with the death of their son. John is a good man, he's a good husband and father and they don't deserve this. No one deserves something like this.

I have said this several times and my fellow TMZ commenters agree. The new TMZ layout is horrible! It is too cluttered with too many ads and too many silly non news story's. If TMZ doesn't fix this they will become like myspace and Radaronline will be facebook. I think TMZ may be obsolete in a year

Why was the masseuse naked in the first place?

Putting aside the fake that he is gay and it's the worst kept secret, i think this story really could go either way. It sounds fishy that he put up with him that long and got paid double and still decides to file a lawsuit intead of going to the cops or something. Just sounds like someone who wants a big payday.

I've heard blind items about Travolta sexually harassing male "help" for years. And doesn't Scientology claim it can make gay people straight? I can't understand why anyone is surprised about this story.

If this story is true, what's the 2 mill claim for? The guy was harassed, not threatened or raped. He could have walked any minute.

Strange story, though. Would anyone be so reckless as to hit on a stranger he found online?

That sounds like a load of crap. If he really wanted sex with a man I'm sure there would be ways he could discreetly do that. He would have no need to hire a strange masseuse who would tell the world. They should make these douchebags pay for the attorney fees of the celebrities they try and extort. Might end some of these crap lawsuits (Miranda Yates, anyone?)
