John Travolta

Costume Designer Says

Masseur's Claim is Bogus

5/10/2012 12:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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."

How long does Travolta plan on doing this? Has he completely deluded himself into believing he is above the law?

Maybe he made a mistake regarding the dates. Clearly, Travolta was in Los Angeles on the 15th, so this is not a clear and absolute discharge of whether this abuse happened. I don't believe he would have that propensity in his character, so I totally support him until there is absolute proof to the contrary.

Didn't his wife have a baby in December? No sex for a month after a baby, right? No wonder he needed a handie !!!

Can you say shakedown? We have a famous (gay?) celebrity on one side and an anonymous masseuse who works in the buff and his DUI/ambulance chasing attorney in the other. We also have to believe that John Travolta is dumb enough to pull stupid stuff like this after all the years he has been a celebrity. Give me a break, i,m sure John's personal assistance would be very careful before deciding to set up a close encounter with the likes of Mr. John Doe.

Is this what 15 minutes of a "fame" has become or costs? If you can afford to sue someone famous, you can have your 15 minutes??? Pathetic!!!

TMZ isn't reporting the third accuser. Interesting. I don't know, it seems like John has a fetish for being sexually aggressive toward other males, especially ones who perform massage. I think most people would get bored with that scenario after the first few times.

I feel sorry for John, from everything I've read, if true, he has desperately wanted out of the life he has been living for years, but the powers that be--around him, won't let that happen. Maybe his flagrant inappropriate behavior is how he acts out.

The spin doctors at the C of S must be working overtime trying to nip this one in the bud. It's too late JT, no one believes your lame excuses anymore. The more you deny your actions with "new" evidence, the guiltier you look.

Why is this even making news? It sounds so bogus!

I've known for years that Travolta and Tom Cruise lead double lives - knew someone who worked for his publicity firm who said they spent all their time covering up for them. Travolta came onto a male massuese at Palmetto Bluff in SC several years back - he's known to do this.

Travolta came on to male massage therapist at Palmetto Bluff, swanky private resort in South Carolina approx 5 years ago. This is his pattern. He travels with a male companion, not his wife and is a very strange (sleeps all day, up all night when he was there). We've heard for years from well-placed 'sources' that Tom Cruise is gay. Not sure why their wives live a lie but it's all a set up from what I understand. Lots of money to be paid so it's worth covering up
