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.

Personally, the fact that John is a scientologist bothers me way more than the fact that he wants penis. I respect his ability as an actor, and his sexual preference affects that in absolutely no way.

John Travolta is gay?! No, the next thing you'll be telling us is he wears a toupee. John is fooling nobody with that "I used to be straight but Hollywood changed me" routine. He is a gay man who attempts to compensate by pretending to be Mr. Macho Super Pilot in that Boeing 707 for which he isn't even rated in (he is only a private pilot.) However the real tragedy is his promiscuous sexual pursuits could bring on a serious or fatal disease to himself and to his wife.

Read the papers - pretty funny. This has been a long time coming. I've seen so many stories about Travolta's antics in bath houses and how he really likes to persuade straight guys. They've said he is so blatant, it's like he wants to get caught so he can come out. John, it's time, go on with your bad self!

The masseur was sooo tramatized he stood there and watched John choke the chicken! Did he wait around for the happy ending? And all massues have touch their clients privates during the massage-with no intentions of nasty time. Its the price of doing business. The masseur is a lowlife!

I'm hardly a Travolta fan, but I'm just not buying this.

I don't believe this story for one minute. Just some schmuck trying to make a quick dollar off John Travolta. He's probably banking on the fact that John will want the bad press to go away. I hope John Travolta fights this and exposes this jerk.

The National via PerezHilton had this story MONTHS ago. The masseuse sold his story but that doesn't necessarily mean that his claims are untrue. Besides there have been rumors for decades on Travolta's promiscuity and homosexuality. Travolta should've came out years ago. I wonder what his wife Kelly Preston thinks of her hubby's behavior.

I say BS. . .Why would any high profile person do anything like this, knowing full well, there are cameras, recorders -TMZ - lurking at every corner. Seriously doubt Mr. Travolta would put himself (no pun intended) in this type of situation or position. The guy's a gold digging jerk. .. I would even bet, the scenario was the other way around and, he most likely got a big huge REjection!!!!!!

WHY was the masseur naked?! How did Travolta touch his scrotum and shaft if he was fully clothed and behind Travolta massaging his back and/or legs. This sounds SUPER FISHY.

Totally believe it, he's been outed so many times it's amazing there are still people that think he's straight. Everyone in Hollywood knows the truth and turn a blind eye.
