    John Travolta has been named in a criminal complaint by a 21-year-old masseur who accused the actor of sexual battery that reportedly took place in 2000. According to the bombshell police report, the masseur alleged that Travolta groped his bare buttocks and indecently exposed himself during a deep body massage at the LaQuinta Hotel in Palm Springs, California. During the alleged incident, Travolta, 63, also made lewd remarks about gay fantasies while at the hotel's spa facility around 1.30am on February 15, 2000.

    In the wake of the explosive HBO documentary “Going Clear,” John Travolta has come to Scientology’s defense. The 61-year-old made it clear he has no plans to see the doc, which alleges the church has physically abused and blackmailed some of its members, among other questionable acts. “No I haven’t and I don’t really care to,” Travolta told the Tampa Bay Times when asked if he’ll see the film. He’s been a member of the church for more than 40 years and claims his experiences have been nothing but amazing. “I haven’t experienced anything that the hearsay has (claimed), so...

    It is beyond evident America that there is a massive psychopolitical operation underway in our nation. We are being beaten down on a daily basis by people who would have you believe that you are what's wrong with the world. Our kids are being overwhelmed with inappropriate sex education at very early ages, those who believe in the right to life are considered the radicals while those claiming the right to kill their unborn children are being praised. We have a president seeking to make his own people helpless while funding Islamic radicals overseas, the definition of racism has been...

    A senior Scientologist was locked up, beaten and tortured by the controversial religion's tyrannical leadership, a court has heard after an attempt by the Church to silence her spectacularly backfired. Debbie Cook, who was one of the organisation's most respected executives before she quit in 2007, testified that she was held for 45 days in a crowded, ant-infested trailer in the California desert. The 50-year-old also claimed to have witnessed Scientology chairman David Miscavige, a friend of celebrity follower Tom Cruise, punch another senior executive in the face before wrestling him to the ground.

    Carson City — Surging Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle has had to defend her support of a prison program that her opponents linked to Scientology. Trying to head off that theme, Angle has eliminated from her campaign website mention of prominent members of the church, whom she worked with on other legislative efforts. Angle has removed the claim that she, along with actresses Kelly Preston and Jenna Elfman, approached Sen. John Ensign to sponsor legislation prohibiting school employees from requiring students to take psychotropic drugs, such as anti-depressants. Preston and Elfman are high-profile members of the Church of Scientology, which...

He says, "I have arranged for a plane to take down some volunteer ministers and some supplies and some medics. "I hope that inspires others as well. It's needed."

    John Travolta may be close to leaving the Church of Scientology, according to a new report. The actor - along with fellow Hollywood heavyweight Tom Cruise - is one of the most high-profile members of the controversial organisation, and has been for 34 years. But his faith in L Ron Hubbard's teachings is said to have been severely shaken by the death of his autistic son Jett following a seizure in January. Those close to Travolta – who only publicly acknowledged his son's autism after the 16-year-old's death – say that the tragedy has prompted the actor to question his...

    The ˜Valkyrie' actor started plans to produce the 60s western - which is about two lovable bank robbers - last year and hopes to star in the with his close friend John Travolta. A source said: "It has been a pet project of his that has been on the back-burner for years. But now he's ready to go, and will most likely happily eschew the enormous salary that he normally commands." When the movie goes ahead Tom will revive the role of Sundance - previously played by Robert Redford - and John, 55, is expected to play Cassidy. A friend...

    According to religions that practice faith healing, such as Christian Science and Scientology, using any sort of medical treatment would underestimate and doubt the almighty powers of God, and would ultimately cut them off from God. As parents, however, they must be able to balance their role as caretakers and as devoted followers.

    We now know what the document is all about in the John Travolta extortion case. Sources connected with the investigation tell us the document is an authorization for transporting Jett Travolta in the ambulance. We're told John Travolta and Kelly Preston had an issue over where Jett Travolta should be taken for emergency treatment. We do not have further specifics, nor do we know why the alleged extortionists thought it was worth $25 million to keep private.

    Dames said police have a copy of a document they have not been able to prove the authenticity of. The document, he said, is a refusal to transport document. This, Dames explained, is signed by a party when refusing, for example, emergency medical services from trained personnel. Signing the document absolves the hospital of liability regarding an incident, he explained. "In this context, a document like that does not apply because as we know young Jett was not... he did not have any minor injuries. He was very ill. And so the document does not come into play," Dames said....
