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.

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?)

Isn't Travolta's homosexuality, like, the biggest open secret in Hollywood? Didn't Carrie Fisher essentially "out" him in an interview last year? I'm quite sure this incident occurred, but if this masseuse thinks he's gonna get $2 million because Johnny tried to play a little game of doctor, he's aiming pretty high.

There is some degree of truth to this story. WHY did he pick someone up? Him and his wifey could have gotted massage's at there home together! But, I don't believe the non sense of him saying this is what happened on Welcome Back Cotter!!! Who would really do that!?!?! Both wrong and there shouldn't be any payout!

Is this guy trying for his 15 minutes of fame? Why did he make that 2nd appointment if he was harassed the first time. Makes you wonder why, doesn't it? Must be the money he can make from the tabloids. Phoney

I totally believe this. And the "hollywood controlled by gay Jewish men" thing is an insider secret, and not likely something a random masseur would make up someone saying. Rich and powerful people tend to get kicks out of pushing the limits, and they love manipulating ordinary people to get what they want. JT's only mistake was being cheap. He should have paid him thousands, given him a compliment, made him feel special, and we would never hear about this.

And good ****ing god TMZ your new comment system is no better than the old one. Most of the time you can't rate, can't reply (or even read the replies) and placing your own comments only works half the time. Do you have a bunch of ****ing monkeys working for you? Pull your head out of your asses and hire someone who can actually program a website.

How could John touch the guy's scrotum and shaft unless he was naked too. It happened but the guy is greedy and wants more money. Somebody told him how rich he could get and it's probably true.

Where are some people coming up with the idea the masseur was naked? The story says nothing about him being naked. Travolta is alleged to have touched the man's scrotum and penis through his pants. The guy wasn't wearing a chastity belt, brainiacs!
