John Travolta

Ex-Cruise Worker Claims

Actor Wanted Neck Massage ... and More

5/14/2012 12:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0514_travolta_report_Document-LaunchJohn Travolta asked a room steward on a Royal Caribbean cruise line to give him a neck massage in his stateroom back in 2009  ... this according to an official incident report obtained by TMZ, but the documents don't mention anything about any overt sexual overture on Travolta's part.

The steward, Fabian Zanzi, claims he was delivering something to Travolta's stateroom when the actor asked him for a neck massage. Although the report doesn't expressly name Travolta, we've confirmed the actor was indeed the guest in question.

Fabian claimed he obliged -- and Travolta "then told him he was a beautiful person and invited him to return to visit him later that night."

Fabian claimed he refused because of a strict company policy banning RC employees from fraternizing with guests.

Fabian reported the incident and was disciplined for the neck massage, which is a violation of the no-fraternization rule. He subsequently left the company.

Fabian now says the encounter was much more than described in the incident report, claiming Travolta opened his robe and gave him a big hug while his penis was erect ... and offered him $12,000 for sex and silence. 

The video of Fabian (above) was shot yesterday.

Travolta's attorney Marty Singer tells TMZ, "The incident report now confirms Mr. Zanzi fabricated his story about my client. He never stated that my client did anything wrong. Obviously, if he had engaged in any inappropriate conduct he would have reported it to his supervisors."

A rep for Royal Caribbean tells TMZ, "Fabian Zanzi worked for Royal Caribbean International from October 2003 until May 2011 on various ships. In June 2009, Mr. Zanzi was working as a Room Service Phone Operator onboard Enchantment of the Seas."

The rep claims Fabian was NOT fired by the cruise company, but rather resigned on May 18, 2011 -- two years after the alleged incident.

Hey, jerk. Just because some dude hit on you doesn't make you a victim. Whether he did or didn't, you are extorting him because he's in the closet, not because you were abused.

If John wants a massage - I mean an ACTUAL one, not a *cough* massage *cough* he should only use a massuese (woman) not a massuer (male), since I don't hear any accusations comming from women!

Jt isn't going to risk million $ lawsuits coming onto underpaid stranger.s Most Rich people can afford discretionary escort services or sex clubs. He could do the household help like Arnold did or have romps with his gay friends at home or on his jet or boat.
This could be a few men looking for fame or even a smear campaign a la get Mel Gibson by someone with a grudge or agenda.
Two of these stories have already been discredited.
and why wait for years to complain or run to the gossip columns to sell your story? I doubt that a beautiful women like Kelly Preston would stay around for 20 years if he was gay not even for money because they are men more rich and powerful than JT to meet her needs. She could stick to her beliefs a swell and marry another Scientologist. Rumors will always abound esp via radio or a friend of a friend. But where are the facts and evidence, photos etc?

you shouldve taped him, tell him you will be right back and tape his ass, no one is going to believe you because travolta is this big star, so its your word against his, and they gonna believe him, three accusers cant be wrong, but dont look for his career to sink, this incident might make him even more famous.

I also believe these guys, but just because travolta is this big star nothing is going to come out of it, he abused the ordinary working person that have to struggle to survive, what a dirty guy. Too bad someone didnt tape his sexual requests

people dont realize in the workplace if the boss harrass you or make your life a living hell, sooner or later you have to leave, and there is no proof to it, just your word against the boss word, and they gonna believe the boss, happens all the time in the workplace, workers need more rights.

maybe the cruise ship was looking at the big money travolta could pay for his trip, and wanted fabian to keep quiet about it, but if I was him I would set up my phone to record him and video tape him asking for sex, but dont travolta have a wife. I think its best you get information on tape, just as proof, may not stand up in court, but you can sell it to the highest bidder if you loose the case.

These are just people trying to score their 15 minutes of fame and maybe a few $$$ as well. If John Travolta were gay it would have come out a long time ago. Now, if you really want a gay kid, go see Justin Bieber.

Do you have any idea how many times I've been propositioned, groped and harassed in my life? Most women probably have many, many times. Not one lawsuit.
