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.

lols, oh it's perfectly clear TMZ, perfectly clear. He settled with the guy rather then be forced to humiliate himself under oath at trial!

Stop doing that sneaky stuff and come out already John! +1 Zanzi!

The only people who think John Travolta is gay are gossipy/slanderous women and homosexual men who have a crush on him :D

If he didn't settle then Travolta should sue for defamation of character. But, that won't happen because it looks like he settled. Also, for everyone who's screaming "gay." There really is another option, "bisexual." Which society really has a difficult time embracing...thus...the continued secrecy.

We all know he paid the guy off. The nicest thing Travolta could do for his wife is divorce her so she could find herself a straight guy. She must be in a living he!l.

Money grab and nothing more. I hope that guy dies soon so he cannot enjoy the money he extorted from John.

1.75 million for spreading your a** cheeks to a masseuse. Not a bad payday for the masseuse if I must say.

I could give a crap about wether he is or isn't. What angers me is that just because he doesn't want to come out he thinks that gives him the right to defame others. I beleive the pilot and this guy and it ticks me off him/his lawyers publically bash them as liars, etc. Just own it John or keep it in your pants and quick making advances at people or pay up for being a lying douch bag. Had he handled it differently, honestly, I'd stand behind him. I haven't much sympathy for Kelly either...she has to know.

Is there NO perversion the adherents of that obnoxious for-profit Scientology cult are incapable of performing?

Just an opinion based upon ample reading of the to-me extreme weirdness of those convinced that deceased alien spirits reside inside them.
