John Travolta

I Didn't Pay Off Accusers

John Travolta
didn't cough up a red cent to the two male masseurs who accused him of sexual battery -- despite the fact that both dismissed their lawsuits just days apart.

Travolta's lawyer, Marty Singer, tells TMZ, "Not one penny has been paid nor do we have any intention to pay any money for these ridiculous and false claims."

As we reported, the second accuser fired his lawyer -- just two days after the first accuser filed papers dismissing his lawsuit. The second accuser is also expected to file papers dismissing his lawsuit.

It's unclear why accuser #2 is ending his Travolta war.

Accuser #1 called it quits after TMZ posted photos proving his story was bogus.

Can I ask a question of Marty Singer ..... you threatened legal action against those making the alleged claims on the basis of being false, and causing harm to John Travolta's reputation, etc. So, get on with it. If John is innocent as you say, put your money where you mouth is and launch legal action against Doe #1 and Doe #2. If you don't commence proceedings, can I assume you're hiding something ?

The National Enquirer was right about John Edwards and Rielle Hunter, they were right about Gary Hart and Donna Rice, they were right about Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, and they are right about John Travolta and many, many men.

Again.....Translation: "I" didn't pay anyone off. The Church of Scientology did it for me so the payments couldn't be traced to me.

He just needs to come out of the closet before the videos are released. I am betting someone had either video equipment or audio equipment somewhere, sometime.

John T. has obviously not been very discreet.

Well of course Travolta didn't write the check personally but what the difference if Travolta wrote a check or Scientology writes a check?

.

I don't get people like Travolta who claim they are all for gay rights but continue to hide in the closest.

Forget Tom Cruize, JT is the real one trapped in the closet with R. Kelly. Scientology weaklings.

Of course he didn't pay them off, that's why they went running to Gloria, Queen of the BS lawsuits.

i'm not saying one way or another about Travolta, but things like this happen every day. you can't "pray the gay away" or pretend you aren't, then start a family. there may be gay men who start families with women and never do anything, but there are married men cheating on their wives in every chat room on the internet looking for someone to meet at a motel/hotel. i wouldn't be surprised if he was like that, but i think you need real proof and not just words, and you should be contacting the wife not TMZ and lawyers.

Obviously they did not pay of accusers number 1 and 2 since they have both retained Gloria Allred after dumping their original lawyer. In cases like this the objective is always to reach an out of court settlement. Gloria has been very successful in negotiating seven figure payouts in similar sex extortion cases. I doubt that Travolta wants any of these claims to proceed to court because he will be forced to give depositions under oath and he will no doubt be asked if he has EVER had gay sex. If he lies about this he could go to prison. This is a no win situation for JT

Whoa!! If he didn't pay a dime for them to dismiss their lawsuites, then I have to believe those Scientologists are a force to be reckoned with!!
