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."

JT probably has to keep up the charade because Scientology insists on it. The guy must feel trapped, at least you'd think so? Doesn't excuse him using his celebrity to coerce people into sex acts though. JT would have to break away from Scientology for him to come out as they claim to cure homosexuality?? That wouldn't be easy.

He is JOHN F-ING TRAVOLTA, who cares if he is gay, if he is not! The point is, he makes awesome, great, incredible movies. He is an amazing actor, who can take on any role, and give an unbelievable outstanding performance. WHO CARES if he is gay or not. WHY is his sexual life, any of our business. People make way too much of a big deal about whether someone is gay or not.

Who cares what his sexual orientation is, the only issue is if he cheated and lied to his children and family. Maby he ans his wife have an "agreement" that he can have his flings. Its their buisness.

You do not want to **** with Scientology's attorneys. They're as bad as Westboro.
It's just impossible for a person who has to pay for billable hours to compete with cult slaves.

I've been in the Spa industry for a while now and it's common knowledge that Travolta has gay tendencies, to the point where he has been banned from high end hotels or required to schedule with women LMTs only. Evry story is the same. In regards to the pilot, just google images of "John Travolta pilot kiss" and it's pretty clear there was a relationship happening.....

If your innocent John why are you trying to push a confidentiality agreement on this guy? What are you worried about? This is like the 4th accusation...My mon used to say "Where there's smoke there's fire."

To all of the people making a big deal about this and still talking about, let me ask you a question. Does John Travolta being GAY or NOT, affect YOUR life in anyway? Whether he is gay or not, does it change anything in YOUR life? NO? Then, why do you care if he is gay or not? TMZ, please tell me to begin with, how this is anyones business? I will support him either way, because I love his movies, his acting. How would all of you like, if the public put YOUR sex life, past and present, under a microscope? Someone explain to me, why this is even a BIG deal?? So what if he is? So what if he isnt? Stop over reacting you idiots. Nothing to see here people, go on about your lives.
