John Travolta

6-Figure VICTORY Over

'Bathhouse Sex' Book Author

EXCLUSIVE

1207_john_travolta_01
John Travolta just kicked even more ass in his legal war with the author of a book who claimed the actor frequented gay bathhouses ... and it's costing the author a bloody fortune.

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.

The court threw out the case back in September ... but now, adding salt to the wound, the judge has ordered the author to reimburse John for the entire legal bill ... to the tune of $139,645.17.

Travolta's attorney, legal pit bull Marty Singer, is fired up about the ruling ... telling TMZ, "This legal fee award is another complete and total victory for Mr. Travolta.  Anyone else who files a ridiculous lawsuit against him should expect a similar outcome.”

Who cares what his sexual preference is. That's all the people and media want to focus on. Quit being such homophobes and look past it. This man is still a good actor and his personal life doesn't affect any of us on a personal level.

This is ALWAYS the case in the US now: whoever has the most resources to spend on any legal action ALWAYS wins. OJ, Robert Blake, etc. Even these types of things. SAME result.

- A big list of big names like Jennifer Lopez, Anita Baker, Larry King, Donna Summer, Elton John , Madonna and others have claimed that articles written about them are false. In another words a lot of things published from artists don't have substantial truth and whoever wrote things without any proofs should be paid for the damages. Good for John Travolta this time ^i^
