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.

Does anyone else think Travolta kind of looks like a young Jerry Sandusky?

Gad zooks. Tell me it ain't so. But who really cares. People's lives are their business. The only reason we think it's also our business is because publications try to make it so.

As the PROUD and RESPONSIBLE furmom of a PITBILL, who is training to become a TDI (therapy dog), I resent the use of the term PIT BULL when using it as a derogatory adjective! The Pit Bull breed has enough problems trying to defend itself against frenzied media hype and BSL, w/o having to deal with additional stereotypical and negative comments from TMZ! Discrimination is not fair, whether it is against a race, religion (remember Hilter!), sexual preference, dog breed and/or anything else! Sincerely, Shawn Goodwin Melbourne, Fl

How many people is Travolta accused of assaulting? I don't care if he's gay or not but if enough, everyday people, accuse you then I have to wonder what's up. Seems like there 1/2 a dozen people (men) who've accused him and let see ZERO women. Hmmmmm.

What a crock! So he was afraid of John's power & fame, huh? And what....FABIAN isn't a celeb himself? Anyone besides me recall "Turn Me Loose" or "I'm a Tiger"? Dick Clark would.

It does not matter to me in the slightest about John Travolota's sexual lifestyle or choice of "religion."


The "witch hunt" by the media on these two topics is cruel. The same cannot be said about Mr. Travolota ~ that bears far more weight with me.

You could "care less"? That means you really care. I thing you mean "I could not care less". Please people, pick up a book once in a while. While I am at it
IRREGARDLES
is NOT a word. Look it up. Regardless, people, just plan regardless.
