When a Los Angeles man wrote a book that claimed John Travolta was a well-known cruiser of gay massage spas in town, we were a bit doubtful.
First, why didn’t others come forward with similar accusations that the actor was doing this pretty much out in the open? Second, one of the main spas mentioned was not known as a gay spot at all.
Well, maybe we were wrong (warning — explicit language):
In a lawsuit revealed today, a masseur alleges that Travolta hired him, took him to a Beverly Hills Hotel bungalow and fondled him after he stripped himself nude.
The news of the L.A. lawsuit was broken by RumorFix.
Depending on if you believe them or not, the accusations could corroborate allegations made in Robert Randoph’s You’ll Never Spa In This Town Again, self-published in 2010.
His claims seemed far fetched at the time, and not a soul, it seemed, came forward to back them up.
Then there was this suit, in which the John Doe masseur says Travolta told him:
TMZ says the filing also claims that Travolta told the masseuse, as he masturbated, that sexual favors were his way up in a Hollywood allegedly controlled by Jewish men who expect such service.
Gay? Travolta allegedly asked the massage artist to help him double penetrate a Hollywood “starlet,” according to RumorFix.
He paid $800 to the guy, who said he charged $200 an hour.
The suit seeks $2 million plus “damages,” says TMZ.
The last time someone accused Travolta of being a gay massage fiend, he threatened to sue. The key word here being threatened.
