It could be a bogus blackmail attempt.

Travolta's spokesman dismissed the claim in a statement as a "baseless lie."

"On the date when plaintiff claims John met him, John was not in California and it can be proved that he was on the East Coast," the statement said. "John intends to get this case thrown out and then he will sue the attorney and plaintiff for malicious prosecution."

Funny how we Want to believe even though There Is no substantiated Facts but from some "unidentified masseur" [title] who probably is out for notoriety, is a nutcase.

Go for it I say..

I am strangely surprised that I am not surprised that the victim was a masseur, not a masseuse.

It’s almost like I sorta always knew.

Feh!

Even us rock-ribbed heteros (NORMALS), could dance like that, if it was our full-time job and we received top- notch, focused instruction.

Personally, I hope neither of them ever does. If more gays abided by "Don't Ask Don't Tell", and kept their orientation in their bedrooms where it belongs, it would make me happy.

According to the article, plaintiff’s attorney tried to “resolve” the matter with Travolta before filing suit. In other words, tried to get Travolta to give him a bunch of $$$ to avoid the lawsuit. When that didn’t work, the plaintiff filed the lawsuit, demanded a jury trial, and his attorney released the info to Reuters. That’s a standard escalation of an attempted legal extortion, with the attorney/plaintiff still hoping to force an out-of-court settlement from Travolta. In the meantime, the plaintiff is allowed to conceal his own identity so nobody can question him or bother him.

I don’t think the plaintiff’s in it for the notoriety. He’s in it for the money.

Remember in Saturday Night Fever when he was looking in the mirror going, “Attica....Attica....Attica”. That was imitating Al Pacino’s gay character from “Dog Day Afternoon”

No surprise.

Kelly Preston must be one of the best looking female beards ever. OTOH, her choice in men (Chazz Sheen, Jacques Travolta) is bad at best, deadly (gunfire, AIDS) at worst.

I just don't get it..........

No. In fact Hubbard declared that all homosexuals are suppressive persons.

I’ve read a mocking analysis of this that concludes it’s bull.

http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/john-travolta-massage-lawsuit-543687

But if it’s true it paints an extremely bad picture of Travolta’s mental state. Basically that he prostituted himself to men to get roles and thereafter acquired a taste for perversion.

In my book he was great in Saturday Night Fever. And at least he played a ladies’ man. He was very good at playing a cartoon of a cool New York dude.

A second anonymous accuser, coincidentally using the same attorney as John Doe #1. Maybe it will all turn out to be true, but I remain skeptical.

It is very well known that Travolta is gay and constantly on the prowl. He’s not very discreet, it is said. Also that Scientology has him blackmailed so he has to do their bidding.

Reese Hopkins proved he wasn’t in New York when he was accused of Rape. So they changed the date back a year to when he was. But he’s a Black Conservative.

He may not have looked like a ladies’ man in the movie but some of them were after him. But I still liked his acting and dancing (and of course the great BeeGees music). True, he had a dancing double but he did a lot of it himself and quite well.
