John Travolta sued by a male massage therapist for lurid sexual advances
John Travolta is being sued by a male masseur over accusations of lurid sexual advances during a therapy session at the luxury Beverly Hills Hotel.
John Travolta, 58, who has repeatedly denied being gay in the past, is said to have touched the unnamed therapist’s genitals during a $200-per-hour massage appointment, the lawsuit claims.
The claim filed in court claims that the married actor stripped naked – and appeared aroused – before being massaged while at the same time trying to remove the towel covering his bottom.
After the hour’s session was over, John Travolta is then alleged to have touched the man’s scrotum and penis.
But the masseur insists he pulled away and claims he then informed the actor that he was a professional masseur and not a prostitute.
John Travolta, who has been married to Kelly Preston for 21 years, is then said to have responded that “we must have got our signals crossed”, before adding: “Come on dude, I’ll jerk you off.”
The star is then said to have suggested a “reverse massage”, which is believed to mean that he wanted the masseur to lie on the table while the actor gave the man a full body rub.
The lawsuit, filed at the U.S. District Court of Central California, claims John Travolta then masturbated.
During the alleged encounter John Travolta – who claims the accusation are “fiction” – is also said to have told the man that Hollywood “is controlled by homosexual Jewish men” who expect sexual favors in return for granting parts in films during the encounter in an annex of the five-star Beverly Hills Hotel.
John Travolta is alleged to have then claimed he had done things that “would make most people throw up” during the apparent incident, said to have taken place on January 16.
He allegedly claimed that he got his first big movie break due to the sexual favors he performed while starring in the 1975 TV series Welcome Back Kotter.
The plaintiff – who refuses to be named because his lawyer claims he is frightened of the Hollywood powerhouse – alleges that John Travolta picked him up in his black Lexus SUV after a anonymous phone appointment was made instructing the masseur to wait in a specific spot in a nearby street.
During the journey, the man noticed condoms alongside chocolate cake wrappers littering the console of the vehicle.
After pulling up outside the Beverley Hills Hotel, they are then said to have entered one of the business’s annexes opposite the main building, which are known as bungalows.
They were then greeted by an “overweight” black man who was grilling hamburgers. This chef is then said to have disappeared when John Travolta allegedly tried to have sex with the male masseur.
The masseur is seeking more than $2 million in damages.
A spokesperson for John Travolta issued a vehement denial, he said: “This lawsuit is complete fiction and fabrication. 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…On that date when plaintiff claims John met him, John was not in California and it can be proved that he was on the East Coast.
“Plaintiff’s attorney has filed this suit to try and get his 15 minutes of fame. John intends to get this case thrown out and then he will sue the attorney and Plaintiff for malicious prosecution.”
Okorie Okorcha, the lawyer representing the masseur told RadarOnline.com: “My client is afraid of John Travolta. “
He added: “Mr. Travolta made very explicit threats against my client, which are contained in the lawsuit.
“Specifically, John Travolta told my client that Hollywood is controlled by homosexual Jewish men who expect favors in return for sexual activity.
“Let’s face it, John Travolta is an extremely powerful man, and my client absolutely felt threatened by Mr. Travolta. My client was sexually assaulted by Mr. Travolta and he needs to be held accountable for his actions.”
