John Travolta Sued

By Alleged Gay Lover

I Never Agreed to Keep Secrets

A former pilot who claims to have had a secret gay relationship with John Travolta is suing the actor ... claiming he NEVER signed a confidentiality agreement that would stop him from talking to the media ... but Travolta's camp says he's completely full of crap.

The man behind the lawsuit is Doug Gotterba -- who claims he served as Travolta's pilot from 1981 to 1987. Gotterba made headlines recently when he reportedly spoke to the National Enquirer about his "steamy affair" with the actor.

Gotterba does not go into detail about his personal relationship with Travolta in the lawsuit ... but says after the media tidal wave that ensued, he received a threatening letter from Travolta's attorney Marty Singer.

In the suit, Gotterba claims Singer threatened to sue him for violating a confidentiality agreement he signed when he stopped working for Travolta.  

Gotterba claims he DID sign a termination agreement ... but it didn't include anything about confidentiality. Therefore, Gotterba says he did nothing wrong ... and should be allowed to talk about Travolta without fear of a lawsuit. 

But Singer tells TMZ Gotterba's lawsuit is "ridiculous" ... because he DID sign a contract that contains a confidentiality agreement ... and he even included the document in his lawsuit.

Singer adds, "Mr. Gotterba obviously filed this lawsuit to get his 15 minutes of fame. We plan to get this meritless case promptly dismissed."

Pretty simple solution! Produce the letter that Travolta's attorney, Marty Singer sent the guy and the workld will believe him.

I have said before and I will say it again-the problem is not John being gay it is his behavior. If the allegations of his behavior is true then he is a pig and deserves what he gets but if he is not a pig and wants to stay in the closet that is his business. And if you get the chance to read the Spa book read it-if true Travolta is so gross and horrible. So there that is my opinion.

TRAVOLTA should just GIVE IT UP NOW! EVERYONE knows he likes taking it up the SPHINCTER and the SOONER he's honest about it the SOONER all this will END! If he wants to take the wind out of the sails of these parasites...THEN HE NEEDS TO ADMIT THAT HE LIKES TO DIP HIS BANANA IN THE CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN! No one would care anymore and these leeches will move on to someone else!!!!

This picture is totally freaking me out. If you gave him pointed ears he'd look like a gay Vulcan. That isn't good.
