John Travolta

Claims 2nd Masseur

Is ALSO Lying

EXCLUSIVE

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."

You people are all a bunch of schmucks! All it takes is one rumor, and you already have the man tried and convicted. You make me sick. All you imbeciles are just jealous of his fame and fortune, and want him to be brought down a peg or two. Childish. Just childish.

I worked in the resort industry in Palm Springs for many years. It was fairly common knowledge that Mr. Travolta had this "problem" with male masseuses.

About 10 years ago, one of my best friends from college who is a professional masseuse told me a similar story about a massage Travolta. This is when Travolta was filming Primary Colors. It was in Vail, CO. Dropping the towel, asking for a massage in in private area. Same MO. When I saw this story I knew it was true.

When I lived in Hollywood in the 70's the rumors about him being gay were all over the place, that's why I can't say this is not possible.

Always liked Travolta in movies, just kind of lost respect for him when he started following that cult, Scientology crap along with Kirstie Alley and all that Oprah schmoozing yuck.

I ain't saying it's right. But you're saying a **** massage don't mean nothing, and I'm saying it does. Now, look, I've given a million (dudes) a million **** massages, and they all meant something. We act like they don't, but they do, and that's what's so f***ing cool about them. There's a sensuous thing going on where you don't talk about it, but you know it, he knows it, ****ing (John Doe #1) knew it, and (John Doe #2) should have f***ing better known better.

What's next? A masseur class action suit? ;-) With all of the longtime rumors and innuendo, I wouldn't be surprised.
