John Travolta is facing a third claim of sexual harassment as Fabian Zanzi comes forward
John Travolta is facing a new accusation of sexual harassment after a third man came forward yesterday.
Chilean-born Fabian Zanzi was an employee on the liner at the time and was in charge of VIP guests.
Fabian Zanzi – the first of the three victims to be publicly named – told South American news website ABC.es that John Travolta approached him and offered him $12,000 to have sex with him.
He told the website he refused the actor’s advances.
Fabian Zanzi recalled: “He had something on his neck. I thought it was a fuzz. As I approached, he took off his white coat and was naked.
“He hugged me and asked me to do a massage.”
Reports suggest Fabian Zanzi has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against John Travolta – although this has yet to be verified.
The news comes following claims from two unidentified masseurs alleging John Travolta sexually assaulted them. They are suing for $2 million in damages.
John Travolta’s lawyer, Marty Singer has strenuously denied the two initial claims and is yet to comment on the latest allegations.
The first two masseurs to come forward have been named as John Doe #1 and John Doe #2 in U.S. lawsuits. Both are being represented by lawyer Okorie Okorocha and claim John Travolta made sexually advances towards them.
Wednesday John Travolta’s camp put forward photographic evidence which appeared to provide Travolta with an alibi with regard to claims by John Doe #1, who alleges he was assaulted by the actor on January 16 of this year at a Beverly Hills hotel in Los Angeles.
John Travolta’s lawyers, however, claim the actor was in New York City on that date – releasing a restaurant receipt from the Mr. Chow restaurant in NYC and two photographs of the actor as evidence.
It is claimed by TMZ.com that two photos show him first at 4:30 p.m. and then again at 5:21 p.m., at a fitting for his upcoming movie Killing Season in the Big Apple.
In a new development today, the New York Daily News reports flight records prove John Travolta landed in Westchester, New York, hours before sunrise on the day John Doe #1 claims the alleged sexual harassment took place in Los Angeles.
It supports the actor’s alibi he was 3,000 miles away from the scene of the alleged groping.
In another bizarre twist the unidentified masseur has released a statement wishing John Travolta “health and happiness” – despite pressing ahead with the lawsuit.
In a statement to RadarOnline he said: “Even though Mr. Travolta and his counsel are on opposing sides in this matter, I do wish them good health, happiness, and want them to be judged with absolute fairness as our great nation affords all citizens regardless of their wealth or station.”
