John Travolta

6-Figure VICTORY Over

'Bathhouse Sex' Book Author

12/7/2012 11:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
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.”

probably still doesn't come close to how much money Travolta has allegedly paid out to masseurs, bath-house attendees and cruiseship employees to keep their mouths zipped (except when allegedly indulging Travolta personally)

Why all this brouhaha about John Travolta? It doesn't matter whether he is gay or not. That is his personal business and these people are just trying to cash in at his expense.

If judges did that more often there would be less of these crap lawsuits from people out to scam money from celebrities.

But, seriously, WHAT did he do to his hair?!?! Bald would be better than the chia-pet on his head.
