John Travolta

DENIES Sexually Assaulting

Cruise Ship Worker

8/4/2012 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0804_john_travolta_tmzJohn Travolta has fired back at the cruise ship worker who claims Travolta sexually assaulted him in 2009 ... filing docs yesterday claiming the worker is LYING and made the whole sordid story up.

As TMZ first reported, Fabian Zanzi claims that Travolta exposed himself during a neck massage aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ... and offered to pay him $12,000 to keep the incident quiet. Zanzi detailed his allegations back on video in June (see below).

In court docs filed yesterday by legal pitbull Marty Singer ... Travolta admits to being on the cruise ... but denies all the allegations of misconduct against him.

Travolta also reiterates his point that Zanzi filed a report with Royal Caribbean over the alleged incident when it happened ... but failed to mention any of the sexual details.

Travolta wants the lawsuit dismissed and for Zanzi to pay his attorney's fees.

If John is gay or bi- sexual, so what, I am sure he wouldn't have any problems finding a willing partner without this much difficulty. His image seems to have been squeeky clean until now so someone is lying or wanting attention. If this dude was embarassed by the offending member he should have said something or ignored it. It happens to us (women) all the time.

why would anyone want this guy? His whinny voice drives me crazy in less than two minutes of this interview. As far as if John T. being gay. Who cares. It's between him and his wife. If he is he should leave her and stop living the double life.
