Two male massage therapists have accused John Travolta of sexual battery, according to E! Online. The masseurs allege that the long-time closeted actor touched them inappropriately, made advances and talked about sexual favors.
Plaintiff No.1 claims Travolta “shamelessly stripped down naked” and was “semi-erect” before a massage session started at the Beverly Hills Hotel in January 2012.
He says the actor touched the masseur’s scrotum while giggling “like a mischievous child.” Travolta also told the masseur that he “got where he is now” because of sexual favors he had performed when he was in his ‘Welcome Back, Kotter’ days because “Hollywood is controlled by homosexual Jewish men” who trade roles for sexual favors.
Plaintiff No. 2 claims he has “substantial documentation and numerous witnesses regarding the substance of Travolta’s actions.” This interaction occurred at an Atlanta resort, also in January.
Meanwhile, you may recall that Carrie Fisher, in an interview with The Advocate in December 2010, casually remarked, “My feeling about John has always been that we know and we don’t care. I’m sorry that he’s uncomfortable with it. It only draws more attention when you make that kind of legal fuss. Just leave it be.”
Travolta was first exposed as a gay man by porn star Paul Barresi, who gave a tell-all interview about an alleged gay relationship with Travolta in the 1980s. Other men have also come forward alleging sexual contact with Travolta, who has been photographed kissing male staff members on the lips. *
