John Travolta Accused of Sexually Assaulting 2 Masseurs
Two unnamed male masseurs are claiming that they were sexually assaulted by John Travolta.
Fox News reports that both men say the "Pulp Fiction" star tried to have sex with them during massage sessions. The first John Doe filed a sexual assault lawsuit on Monday while the second John Doe filed a $2 million sex assault suit on Tuesday.
The same attorney is representing both masseurs, the news station points out.
Travolta’s rep said the first man’s claims are "complete fiction."
"This lawsuit is complete fiction and fabrication," the star’s rep said in a statement. "None of the events claimed in the suit ever occurred. The plaintiff, who refuses to give their name, knows that the suit is a baseless lie.
"Plaintiff’s attorney has filed this suit to try and get his 15 minutes of fame," the statement continues. "John intends to get this case thrown out and then he will sue the attorney and plaintiff for malicious prosecution."
The second John Doe alleged that in late January, during an in-room massage session in an Atlanta, Ga., resort, Travolta, 58, took off his sheet and asked for his butt to be massaged. He then opened his legs and revealed his erection.
RadarOnline.com reports that the suit says Travolta then tried to "force Doe Plaintiff No. 2’s hand on Travolta’s scrotum. Then, Travolta started to grab, rub and caress Doe Plaintiff No. 2’s upper thighs and buttocks."
The first John Doe claims that the "Grease" actor touched his genitals and then suggested that they have sex, ABC News points out.
John Doe is prepared to fight back and told RadarOnline that "I have proof to support the truth that I’m telling." He would not tell the website what the proof actually was, however.
The lawsuit says that the movie star booked a massage from an online ad, picked up the masseur and eventually brought him to his personal bungalow.
The celebrity allegedly undressed in front of the plaintiff before the massage began. After an hour of treatment, the lawsuit claims that Travolta rubbed the alleged victim’s leg and touched his penis. The masseur says he told the actor that he would not have sex with him but Travolta offered to perform a sexual act.
Travolta married actress Kelly Preston in 1991 and the couple had three children together. In 2009, their oldest son died from a seizure.
