John Travolta
was not in L.A. the day a masseur claims the actor sexually assaulted him ... in fact, Travolta flew to New York the night before ... TMZ has learned.

We checked flight records which show Travolta's jet took off from Los Angeles International Airport at 8:21 PM on January 15, 2012 and landed at 3:59 AM the next morning in Westchester County, NY.

The masseur's lawyer claims Travolta met the masseur in question at the Beverly Hills Hotel at 10 AM on January 16, but the flight records show differently.

We've also learned Travolta stayed at The Greenwich Hotel in NYC on the 16th. We posted pics of Travolta taken for a wardrobe fitting on the 16th in the late afternoon -- pics that were taken for his upcoming movie. Notice the photo showing the hotel bathroom ... the tile floor, the marble on the walls and the bathroom door match the photos in which Travolta appears.

Travolta also went to Mr. Chow in NYC in the evening on the 16th. 

So the actor was firmly ensconced in The Big Apple during the time frame the masseur claims the assault occurred.

Knew it, people just want money and thought "If a gang of us say he did it and we all share similar facts, we could do it! Plus people think he's gay anyway".
The human race people. Amazing, isn't it?

Maybe the accuser got the date wrong, I have NO doubt this happened though.

In comments unusually candid for a celebrity discussing another star, Carrie Fisher dropped a bombshell in a new interview, saying that everyone knows John Travolta is gay.

Travolta has been followed by gay rumors and reports since the late 1980s. He has always denied them and has enlisted his legal team to help squelch them.

But Fisher, speaking to the Advocate, showed no fear in addressing the topic.

The interviewer asked: “I know you and Travolta go way back, so let’s get really blunt here: Does his (Travolta’s) legal team have any business demanding Gawker remove a recent post suggesting that he’s given (bleep) jobs?”

Fisher answered: “Wow! I mean, my feeling about John has always been that we know and we don’t care. Look, I’m sorry that he’s uncomfortable with it, and that’s all I can say. It only draws more attention to it when you make that kind of legal fuss. Just leave it be.”

The Advocate also notes that in 2009 Fisher gave this statement for a piece about 10 Things gay men should know about women: “We don’t really care that John Travolta is gay.”

Travolta was first publicly called gay by porn star Paul Barresi who gave a tell-all interview about an alleged gay relationship with Travolta in the 1980s. He later recanted that story and subsequently said the story was true. Other men have come forward alleging sexual contact with John, who recently became a father again with wife Kelly Preston giving birth to son Benjamin.

The actor has raised eyebrows with his behavior, including kissing male staff members on the lips. But beyond that there have been consistent and numerous allegations by men who say the actor either pursued them sexually or indulged in gay sexual acts.

Guess this DOES prove JT was in NYC when the alleged assault took place. I wonder what this bodes for the 2nd accusation.

But, if Travolta had flown to NY from LA and had flown west to get there (rather than east) he would have crossed the international dateline and landed the day before, thus creating an alibi but not discrediting the claims of the masseuse...and if you read this far, you are a dolt.

Maybe the guy got his dates wrong. Or maybe he's lying. But what about the second guy? Is John going to claim he wasn't in town for that either? I still have a hard time believing that all of the other men over the years are lying.

Seriously wtf    

Things I would like to see TMZ do with this site...

1. When I flag something as spam, I want it to disappear off the screen for me. When it is flagged enough, make it disappear pending review.

2. Be able to reply to replies.

3. Have more than 15 comments per page.

4. Have a drop down box (in addition to the current page number navigation) so that one can jump to middle pages easily.

5. Make the new right side bar much narrower. It clutters up the screen as it is now.

Nice hotel.
Can somebody explain why they take PHOTOS for a wardrobe fitting? I thought they would take measurements...?

Oh please, TMZ stopped being objective and therefore credible a while ago. They are now sitting firmly in the anal cavity or back pocket of hose celebs who have the power to do so...like Justin Bieber and Halle Berry. JT is taking the typical celeb defense of victim and threats to counter sue and just
Iike most others his team are busy behind the scenes tracking down ways to blur the truth while dogging up and or paying people off. My guess is the suit will suddenly be dropped (not because it's not true) thanks to behind the scenes threats, payoffs and public character assassination and therefore credibility of those suing JT - whether real or paid for. SO predictable now.

Travolta should sue these guys espically the lawyer. These John Doe's are just accusing where is their proof? He's a professional pilot and of course would file a flight plan.


Say what you want but Travolta is not backing down and not going to be extorted. He is not sceretly setteling. Yes he was in Atlanta but again so what. Where is this guys proof. This is trying to make a quick buck.


Crap like this is way too easy to do. Anyone can sue and claim anything but you better be able to proove what you claim.


Travolta so far hasn't pulled a Lindsay Lohan getting caught in lies and on tape.

Good grief John! You protest too much! You should have kept quiet and dealt with this privately because now all will know what some have known for years....,.You are gay and that's fine! Can't you just accept that and move on? Oh that's right, there are no gay Scientologists.
