John Travolta

Cruise Ship Assault Suit

Mysteriously Dropped

John Travolta is officially off the hook in an alleged high seas assault -- the cruise ship employee who sued him agreed to drop the matter ... just 2 days after a judge ruled the case would be argued in open court.

As TMZ first reported, Fabian Zanzi sued Travolta last June ... accusing the actor of exposing his penis in his stateroom, and hugging Zanzi during a 2009 Royal Caribbean cruise.

But on Friday a federal judge shut down Travolta's attempt to handle the case in arbitration, instead of going to trial. The judge's decision essentially left Travolta's attorneys with 2 options -- go through a messy public trial ... or reach a settlement with Zanzi.

The case was dismissed on Monday, but terms were not disclosed -- so it's unclear if Travolta made a financial settlement with Zanzi.

Check out blindgossip.com to find out the answer to this mystery. It was a very expensive massage for Travolta.

He's probably spent more on "massages" than anyone on the planet. Too bad he doesn't think he can come out.

He doesn't need more money, so what's stopping him? Gay-hating Scientology?

I was at a party 5 years ago and a person who works at the Ritz Carlton here told a story about how Travolta stayed there and word around the hotel was that he wanted sex from a massage therapist (male) he summoned to his room. I didn't believe it at the time. I do now!

Being gay is not a crime. It's doing stuff with big mouths that want their 15 mins fame that are the problem.
