John Travolta

Costume Designer Says

Masseur's Claim is Bogus

A costume designer who shot the photos of John Travolta at a New York hotel says there is no way in hell Travolta met up with a masseur in L.A.. the same day.

Denise Wingate, who worked as the costume designer for Travolta's movie, "Killing Season," tells TMZ she was in the actor's New York suite at The Greenwich Hotel for most of the afternoon on January 16 -- the day a masseur claims Travolta sexually accosted him at a Beverly Hills hotel.

Wingate says she took a bunch of pictures -- including the ones TMZ posted -- during the session that lasted around 3 1/2 hours.  She also says 4 other people were in the room with Travolta and herself.

Wingate, who also fitted Robert De Niro at the hotel the same day, says Travolta was at the hotel almost the entire day, running his lines for the movie.

As we reported, we also obtained the flight plan which shows Travolta flew out of L.A. the evening of January 15 and landed in New York in the early hours of the 16th.

Wingate says any notion that Travolta was in Beverly Hills on the 16th "is absolutely absurd."

The choreographer for Sat. Night Fever was an old friend of mine. He confirmed that......

Wow ...    

When filing a complaint, they use to state "On or about Jan 16, 2012"...because a person's memory of the date can be inaccurate.

Even if the stories are true, it is up to Mr. Travolta to come out. This is his right. His personal life is not on the table for all to see or hear. I do have some pretty accurate witnesses to his alter ego behavior, but that is between "us queens", thank you very much. Not for the public....

I would think that sight of man boobs and request for butt rubs are all in the line of work in the day and the life of a masseur or a masseuse. If they have problems with that perhaps they need to get into another profession. Pushing paper perhaps, it might be less offensive and harassing to them.

If I was travoltuh's lawyer I would come out with an opening argument of: awe c'mon, you act as though you're the only person on earth that has ever been touched by Mr. truhvoltuh's penis. I'm sure other's have found it quite touching.

i'd be careful with defending the man. There are plenty of pictures out there and he certainly can travel quickly using his own plane.
There are 24 hrs in a day....just saying

I don't know why the masseur is asking for $2 million in damage? I don't believe his claim

TMZ was quick to publicize the original lawsuit without checking any facts - great journalism, TMZ.

i've heard about john being a crossed dresser and being gay.
this doesn't surprise me at all.
this is rich john vs not rich massage therapists.
the color of green is what will get him out of this situation.
although people think of "massuers" as a sexual person or profession, the term is massage therapists, there is a lot of education behind this profession and boundaries. a massage therapist goes through over 500 hours of professional training. some a lot more then that.
do you really think john would admit that he did anything sexual with a massage therapist and blow his cover??????
i don't think so.

Am I the only one who doesn't think it even looks like John Travolta's body in that picture? Just curious.
