John Travolta

Claims 2nd Masseur

Is ALSO Lying

EXCLUSIVE

0508_john_travolta_tmz
John Travolta's lawyer is lashing out at the second "anonymous" male masseur who's accused the actor of sexual harassment -- calling the 2nd claim "just as absurd and ridiculous as the first one."

Travolta's powerhouse attorney, Marty Singer, just released a statement in response to a report that a second accuser filed legal docs claiming Travolta grabbed his genitals and masturbated during a massage session on January 28th at an unidentified Atlanta spa resort.

Singer calls the new allegations "absurd and fictional" ... and says they're "just as fabricated" as the claims made by John Doe #1 in the initial lawsuit filed May 4th.

Singer also blasts the lawyer who's representing both accusers -- claiming the attorney obviously read media reports which poked holes in accuser #1's story ... and then made adjustments when asserting claims on behalf of the 2nd alleged victim.

We've put in multiple calls to the lawyer who filed the claims -- but he has yet to return our calls.


Marty Singer's Official Statement:

"This second 'anonymous' claim is just as absurd and ridiculous as the first one. 

The attorney who filed the lawsuit on behalf of his second anonymous client, who does not want to disclose his name although he is required to do so, was notified that his first client’s claims were totally false and fabricated, since our client was not in LA when anonymous “Doe #1” claims he interacted with John Travolta.
 
That fact is easily provable since John Travolta was on the east coast working on a movie on the date that anonymous “Doe #1” claims he interacted with our client.  After we were able to establish that anonymous “Doe #1’s” claims were totally absurd, the same attorney has now filed a claim on behalf of another plaintiff, whom he identified as “Doe #2.”  Significantly, although the same attorney made the fabricated claim for Doe #1, there was never any claim made by anonymous Doe #2 before he filed his specious lawsuit.
 
Before the attorney for the two anonymous plaintiffs filed the claim on behalf of the second person who refuses to disclose his identity although required to do so, it is obvious that he checked media reports that my client was in Atlanta working on a movie.  
 
However, the claim by Doe #2 is just as fabricated as the claim by Doe #1.  Our client will be fully vindicated in court on both of these absurd and fictional claims."

Thank you    

@JDUB, can you blame them for being anonymous? The media are vultures. I think that these people ARE trying to remain anonymous speaks volumes - they're NOT gunning for 15 minutes of fame.

Now to wait and see how many others might step forward....

Travolta rumors are nothing new. Either sue them or be brave.

The rumors about John and masseurs and getting kicked out of health spas around the country go back at least 10 years. The stories about him being gay goes back even longer.

This is beginning to snowball like for Tiger Woods. More and more of these disgruntled masseurs are going to start coming out.

Look, we all know John is gay and in the closet and we all know that Scientology doesn't allow it and have made people "go away" for lesser claims, which is exactly what will happen here. Scientology will harrass the accusers to death and we'll never hear about it again. So what's the point really?

His butt chin makes him look guilty. If it were spackled then I'd believe him.

They're all lying. The flight attendants, masseurs, steam room cleaners, gym employees, hotel desk clerks, they're all lying. Except John. He's not lying. Hahahahahahahaha!

He was cross country on the first one, so the lawyer had to get a second John Doe. Sounds like an extortion scheme to me. I could care less if he likes the fellas in private, he is still one of my favorite actors.

I love John Travolta, I don't care if he is gay or not. I do feel bad that he can't live his true life if he is. He might be bi and have an understanding with his wife and that is NONE of our business. Being a celebrity just can't be worth the invasion of privacy.

I wonder if he was that anonymous hollywood celebrity who settled the herpes claim or something awhile back?

hmmm... where there's smoke there's fire...

And, this isn't about him being gay or not, it's about him being accused of unwanted touching of a sexual nature. Being gay doesn't give him a free pass to grope any man he pleases.

I don't remember ya'll defending Ahnold for his "gropings".
