John Travolta

Triumphs Against Author

of 'Bathhouse Sex' Book

John Travolta
just won a big legal victory against the author of a book who claims the actor frequented gay bathhouses ... TMZ has learned.

You'll recall, Travolta was sued for libel by Robert Randolph -- the author of "You'll Never Spa in This Town Again" -- who claimed Travolta and his lawyer conspired to discredit him and his book by spreading lies about his mental health.

Randolph's beef stems from a letter fired off and allegedly leaked by Travolta's lawyer Marty Singer, which stated Randolph suffers from mental problems -- and claimed his book was packed with lies.

The judge dismissed the case today -- agreeing with Travolta and Singer's lawyer Lynda Goldman -- ruling the letter was a legitimate part of the legal dispute over the book, and therefore protected by the First Amendment. 

Translation -- Travolta and Singer can't be sued over what was written.

How did the rumor that he was gay ever get started? Every time a post about any man is put on TMZ people start ranting that the celebrity is gay. I just don't get it.

How is that a victory? I am starting to think Travolta is a predator.

I can't stand down low gay men. Deceitful fckers. I don't know why he won't just come out. We seen the pictures of him kissing his lover on the plane stairs.

I read the book. Can't say whether it was full of lies, but JT will always be a closeted predator in my mind.

Proud of you TMZ! Thank you for NOT referring to Marty Singer as a 'legal pit bull'. I knew you could get it right. This is a small victory for misunderstood "pitties" everywhere.
