John Travolta

Accuser #2 Drops Lawsuit

That was fast -- just two days after John Travolta's first accuser filed papers to dismiss his sexual battery lawsuit against the actor, the second accuser is following in kind ... dropping his own lawsuit.

According to CNN, the second accuser -- also a male masseur -- just fired his lawyer. The accuser will reportedly file new court papers in an effort to dismiss the lawsuit in the near future.

The 2nd accuser had claimed Travolta assaulted him on January 28th at an Atlanta spa resort, grabbing the masseur's penis.

It's the last remaining sexual battery lawsuit against Travolta. The first accuser -- who had claimed a similar incident occurred on January 16th at the Beverly Hills Hotel -- dropped his lawsuit on Tuesday.

Attorney Okorie Okorocha -- who repped both accusers -- claims he doesn't know why his second client called it quits.

TMZ posted hard photographic proof the first incident couldn't have occurred on January 16th -- but so far, proof against the second incident hasn't surfaced.

I could understand that he might not have "battered" these people if you will. But now he has to explain or be known as being gay and randomly potentially trying to at least hook with random men (possibly consentually). Not to make it sound bad to be gay but that has never really been the image he's portrayed. He also has a wife and kid's how embarrassing for them.

The lawsuits are doing exactly what they were designed to do. They were never intended to drag JT through a lengthly court battle. They were designed to do a number of things - 1. OUT John T. by confirming what many already know and creating doubt among those who thought they knew otherwise. 2. Hit John T. where it hurts for his transgressions -- in his deep pockets and in his image (which indirectly affects his deep pockets). 3. Motivate those who benefit off of JT's celebrity (yet use "the PR Machine" and hired mouthpieces to hide his transgressions) to understand that neither he nor them are untouchable. 4. Remind the public of what they already know --- where there is smoke, no matter how faint in appearance-- there is most certainly fire nearby. By now, the public realizes that the first response is to deny and distract. How many times have we seen these people deny allegations of abuse, drugs, affairs, being gay, or broke. Exactly. This was brilliantly planned and executed!

So how much money did Travolta's people give him to go away? I just wish Gay actors would have the courage to come out!

Do you suppose for once, oh those that seem to know John Travolta so intimately, that the whole thing was a money grab??? People know that celebs will pay to keep their names out of the news if possible, maybe he didn't tip them well enough or something. Who knows, but I think from the start it was a bunch of bandwagon hooey...

i thought it was pretty common knowledge that travolta has been popping up, so to speak, at saunas, spas, and baths all around the greater los angeles area for years. the only suprising thing is that it took so long for anybody to think of suing.

I thought that the proof needed to come from the prosecution... The article states no proof against the second accusation exists. Isn't Harvey a lawyer???

So John Travolta has come to his senses now that he's gone thru the cleansing at the Scientology church after he asked to not have to pay the hefty fees anymore due to declining movie caree!r Finally, we are getting somewhere. But let me take this further. I know that Travolta went to the higher uppers at the church and asked that he not have to pay the 10 percent salary to church, and he'd had to sell off some of his "toys" due to financial downsizing. He pissed someone off at the Scientology cult, and they decided to stop blocking the bad stuff Travolta is/was doing, so they let the cats out of their bags and let it run in media, even paying off people in process. When a member in THETA level comes and asks this of the church they then have to be CLEANSED, and it's not pretty, so he had to go thru that, and now Scientology is pissed off at Travolta, I mean, what movie has he starred in lately???? Think about it. It fits. Something not smelling too good there.
