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.”

You call this a victory for John Travolta? I bought the book on Amazon last week, a victory for Travolta would have been if he had stopped the book from coming out, and staying out. The fact that Randolph's book is here says so much. I used to think John was really something special, and I DON"T care if he is gay or not, now he is just STRANGE!!!

Who cares if he perfer's bathhouses over dungeon's they must hold some kind of 'excitement' for him. He has a big airplane he should go where these old ladies are not looking thru his window all the time.

Travolta's lawyer says anyone who sue's Travolta should expect the same thing. I intend to sue Travolta and his lawyer for being insufferable bores.
