Fresno, CA – Known for his great dance moves in Saturday Night Fever and Grease, John Travolta has been a household name since the 70s. Everybody knows this guy can dance, even the late Princess Diana did not pass up on the chance to dance with him at a charity ball. But lately it is not about his fame, a new movie or fortune on why people are talking about John Travolta, it is more about the infamous gossip that is spreading like wildfire about him being gay.
It all started back in May when John Travolta was sued by a male masseuse who claimed that Travolta groped him in his private parts and tried to solicit sex from him. The plaintiff who refused to identify himself in the lawsuit and just used the name John Doe sue for $2 million.
According to John Doe, around January of 2012, Travolta took him to the Beverly Hills Hotel , undressed in front of the masseuse and asked for a massage. Travolta then offered him a reverse massage and wanted to hold John Doe’s private part and perform a hand job but Doe refused. While this was happening John Travolta told him that he accredited his success to doing sexual favors to the powerful Jewish homosexuals back when he was still starting as an actor. But John Doe still refused and John sent him away, paying him double for his efforts (John Doe charges $200 per hour).
But Travolta issued out a statement saying all the accusations of John Doe were preposterously false and will fight the suit aggressively. John Travolta even posted a copy of his plane ticket to New York to prove that he was not even near California at the time of the alleged sexual solicitation.
As the case was winding down, another John Doe filed suit against Travolta. The funny thing about the second sexual harassment lawsuit is that the same attorney, Okorie Okorocha, handled the lawsuit. But John Travolta’s legal pitbull, Marty Singer, was able to get to the accusers without settling and the two dropped Okorocha as their lawyer and dropped the lawsuits. But, in a twist of fate, these two accusers then retain the services of shameless media opportunist, Gloria Allred as their lawyer. Fishy.
Months have passed and Travolta seems to have been vindicated from his accusers and apparently has moved on to finish his new movie but lo and behold! There is another guy suing John Travolta for ruining his reputation.
Robert Randolph wrote a book entitled, “You’ll Never Spa in this Town Again” which is a bathhouse sex book about Travolta’s sexual exploits in the gay bathhouse pick up spots. Randolph claimed he was a witness to Travolta’s homosexual encounters in bathhouses and included that he also had a sexual encounter with Travolta.
Randolph claims that when Travolta and his lawyer, Marty Singer, heard he had written a book about Travolta; they went all out to ruin his credibility. According to Robert Randolph, Travolta and Singer spread rumors about him telling people that he had institutionalized in a mental hospital and should not buy his book.
Travolta’s representative issued out a statement saying, “To evaluate the credibility of Robert Randolph and his ridiculous lawsuit one need look no further than his own statements published on his website stating that he sustained ‘permanent brain damage’ and had to ‘retrain’ his brain.”
The representative further stated that Travolta will fight this lawsuit aggressively like the past lawsuits that had sprung up.
In this day and age, everyone seems to be litigation obsessed and will do anything and say anything to make a quick buck. This kind of rumors will really hurt Travolta’s reputation if he is unable to vindicate himself. But could it also be possible that his camp is releasing these stuff as part of bad publicity? He does have a movie coming up come to think of it.
But last of all, isn’t it that when there is smoke there’s fire?
