John Travolta sued by masseur, who claims JT groped him

Back in 2010, The National Enquirer and Gawker went a little bit crazy covering some particularly salacious stories about John Travolta’s VERY ALLEGED AND UNVERIFIED gay spa adventures. I believe The Enquirer got the ball rolling (so to speak) when they began excerpting heavily from Robert Randolph’s You’ll Never Spa In This Town Again, a bitchy, sordid exposé on Hollywood’s “secret gay spa culture”. Gawker followed up with a very graphic interview with Randolph, which you can read in all its NSFW glory here – Randolph claims Travolta has a real “thing” for young, dark, lithe men. Shortly after Gawker published that, Gossip Cop reported that Travolta’s lawyers were trying to get Gawker to pull the story – which they still haven’t. The Enquirer did follow-ups too – Randolph claiming that Travolta had anywhere between six to fifty gay lovers over the course of the years.

So… that’s all background for this story. Travolta has just been sued by a masseur, a male massage therapist who claims that Travolta groped him in the middle of a massage. The masseur is seeking $2 million in punitive damages which… seems a bit steep. I don’t want to excerpt too heavily from TMZ’s report, just because I think the graphic terminology isn’t in our site’s best interest. Let see if I can summarize… John Travolta saw the masseur’s ad online and scheduled an appointment for $200 an hour. They met up by car (Travolta keeps condoms in his car console) and the masseur followed Travolta to the Beverly Hills Hotel, where John had his own bungalow. Once in the bungalow, John took off his clothes, and masseur says John was already “excited”. There was one hour of just vanilla massaging, and then Travolta began touching the masseur. He began touching the masseur’s… swimsuit area. The sack and shaft of his swimsuit area. It gets worse from there, so you’ll just have to go to TMZ to read it all.

CB and I talked about this story and the history of the sketchy reports on Travolta’s extracurricular activities. I think I’m probably more gullible than CB, more likely to believe a tabloid story in general. My take: I believe the stories in general terms. I can take issue with specific details here and there, and I think Robert Randolph is probably somewhat of a fantasist, but I do believe Travolta likes to bone dudes in spas (and everywhere else). I believe he probably gropes men on a regular basis. Whether or not it happened specifically with this masseur, I have no idea.

Incidentally, Travolta’s lawyers ran to Gossip Cop yet again to deny the story, just like they did when Gawker published their report about Travolta’s spa activities. Travolta’s rep says in a statement: “This lawsuit is a complete fiction and fabrication. None of the events claimed in the suit ever occurred. The plaintiff, who refuses to give their name, knows that the suit is a baseless lie. It is for that reason that the plaintiff hasn’t been identified with a name even though it is required to do so. 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. Plaintiff’s attorney has filed this suit to try and get his 15 minutes of fame. John intends to get this case thrown out and then he will sue the attorney and Plaintiff for malicious prosecution.” Go back and re-read the Gossip Cop piece about the Gawker story in 2010 – the same kind of grandiose huffing and puffing and threats. From what I can find, Travolta’s lawyers never followed through. I wonder if they will this time?

    it is true. he is gay and a pervert.

    wonder what his cash-in-church thinks.

    • brin says:

      Yeah, that was my first thought.

    • Marjalane says:

      I’m sorry but The Enquirer has become pretty damned credible over the years; They usually have the truth, it just takes a while to get the proof. While I might be inclined to say the public should look away and mind their own business- John and Kelly Travolta have consistantly trotted out their “very healthy and hetero marriage” on every magazine cover for years! They make up all these lies to protect their “image”. John’s gay, we all know he’s gay, and his lies about not being gay, are insulting to gays everywhere.

      • Maguita says:

        Well said!

        I don’t mind if Kelly is consciously in this relationship, with absolute understanding of what it entitles. But the fact that they keep touting that “perfect hetero marriage” to the media and their fans is too insulting. Would rather they keep low.

        Also, this reminds me of all those supposedly gay men in Hollywood, who are part of the “power couples”. Hugh Jackman, Will Smith, Tom Cruise, etc. See, no matter how much you try to cover your nature, NATURE WINS. Every time. Most of these men are now in mid-to-late forties, and are getting sloppier in hiding their true preferences. Heck, if you believe the latest, Will Smith’s lover is sick of hiding and wants to lead a full-on respectful, and publicly acknowledged, same-sex relationship.

        Your true nature, your true self, just refuses to be hidden, and screams to be let out when nearing mid-life term.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        @Maguita – I didn’t know Hugh Jackman was a Scientologist. I just thought he was a nice gay man from a macho country/background who’s sexuality would be frowned upon by those close to him. I also thought he a really obvious beard and a knack for song and dance. I see him as somewhat conservative overall and someone who wanted that family unit.

        Do you have more details on the Will Smith thing.

      • Maguita says:

        @ZenB, I don’t think Hugh is part of the CoS, I was simply enumerating the action-figures in Hollywood, who are in their forties, and are reputed to lead a double life, and where their double identity seems to want to break out.

        As for Will Smith, about a month ago there were stories in NE on his long-standing relationship with another man, who is tired of staying hidden.

        Also on Lainey, she is reporting on a long-standing Marriage obituary for the Smiths: Where all gossip rags already have their stories ready regarding the Smiths ending marriage, for whenever their PR people would announce, on a Friday, that they are splitting up.

      • Annie B says:

        Remember when George Michael was a straight man who hadn’t found the right lady yet? ;)

    • JustcallmeMary says:

      The handprints of the $ church are plainly obvious in his response. He is counter-suing not just the accuser but the lawyer. The church does this with every suit they receive as a matter of course. Its a nuisance suit that almost no judge would grant but it serves to intimidate lawyers from taking cases critical of them.

      I also predict that we will know the identity of the accuser very shortly because without a doubt, the lawyers trash is being riffled through and he is now being followed I bet.

      His accuser and his lawyer will be flooded with all kinds of pre-trial applications that will keep them in court for years. His lawyer will find that he is unable to focus on other cases given the work load arrising from his being sued. His practice will collapse in afew years and he will file for bankruptsy just like the dozens of lawyers who have dared cross the $ Church.

      Also, expect a surge of similar sounding posts on website comments pages. A large staff at SeaOrg is often dispatched to attend to pesky things like website comments.

      I’ve said enough. *backs into the shadows fearfully*

      • Kate says:

        Wow your insight is Aaamazing & totally spot on!! Do you have your own blog?? If not, you should. Oh & it really feels like there’s some $ church people on here now ( hmmm). Just saying…

      • Marjalane says:

        That was a really interesting post; I’m sure it’s quite accurate as well. It’s not like John Travolta needs to be publicly humiliated, but it would serve a great purpose for this crazy ass “church” to get exposed for all their crap. I know what you mean about Sci minions coming on and defending Travolta, (or any of the other Sci crazies) It’s pretty obvious.

      • gg says:

        That pretty much sums it up. And JustcallmeMary is not exaggerating in the least.

      • lil ole me says:

        @ JustcallmeMary & maryjane: Dang ladies yur comments were SPOT ON! Some of the general public aren’t so easily fooled huh? Really makes me wonder why some of these celebrities and politicians don’t just own their shit. People make mistakes it is human, and most of the time if you are honest- the public will forgive you.

        Nobody cares if John is gay. He seems like a good man (aside from his weird religion). The Enquirer has been right about a lot of stories actually- but no one gives them credibility until a mag like “People” picks up the story

      • Joolz says:

        @katie. Anybody who keeps a blog on that church would deserve a bravery medal.
        Heres what they did to Marty Rathburn a very high ranking defector who kept a blog. Theres youtube video embedded for those who need to see to believe http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/2011/04/when_scientolog.php
        They’ve also harrassed hard core news guys including a BBC journalist, Washington post writer and Anderson Cooper of CNN. (for Anderson they published an entire magazine and distributed it outside his offices – google Freedom Magazine Anderson Cooper.)
        If you think online activity is safe, think about this. Wikipedia has banned all known Scientology IP addresses from editing Wiki articles. They would write up slanderous articles about critics and then reference those articles on Wiki as evidence. So for instance, one defector who I wont name found a Wiki article on herself calling her an adulterer and sex addict.
        What these people do is outrageously nutso that when I talk about them I wonder if maybe I am a paranoid schizo or somethin.

      • LeeLoo says:

        That is so correct it is scary!

      • LeeLoo says:

        My opinion is that it is quite the opposite. I think the handprint of Co$ is all over the LAWSUIT. If you haven’t noticed, John hasn’t been the most faithful of Co$ members since the death of Jett.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      I know he’s a gay and has anonymous sex in bathhouses all over town but I question this based on the fact that JT got his paws on the masseuses’ junk. Was the masseuse undressed? If some guy attempts to unzip my pants I am outta there so fast…

      And for $200 an hour and an online ad what should JT expect. That is pricey for no happy endings. It doesn’t sound very professional to me.

      If this was on Craigslist – hello?? Perv central.

      In short, I believe that is what JT expected because it is the logical assumption but I am not totally buying the assault.

      • Maguita says:

        honestly Zen, I get my massages from masseurs (male), and there are moments where you can easily grab at them. If you don’t close your eyes, it could be a bit… discomforting to have their junk so close to your head! You know, when they’re in front of you and rubbing the length of your back.

      • OlsenTriplet says:

        Yeah, he’s guilty.

        But I also wondered how you’d let someone touch you in such… detail… without being slightly involved yourself.

      • bubbles says:

        Okayyyyy, so when JT took his clothes off he was “already pretty exited” that should have been a clue for the masseur, but he continued with about an hour of vanilla massage dressed in a bathing suit? something smells here … it could be Travolta’s wiglet, but I’m just saying …..hm

  2. Original Lucy says:

    and it begins…I think Travolta is the gay Tiger Woods…I predict 85 more dudes come to the surface and tell their “massage” stories…by the way, some of the commentators over on D-listed were saying that there were rumors that Kelly Preston had a son by her first husband and that the child was mentally handicapped and she just kinda dumped him in Hawaii with relatives and denies his existence. Anyone know anything about that?

  3. Dibba says:

    Travolta must be an unhappy man. Too bad he can’t come out of the closet. Must be terrible way to live and he seems like a nice guy. Who is actress who wants threesome?!

  4. Hmmm says:

    Calling this total BS. It sounds like John Doe has been spending too much time on erotic story websites. LOL @ him going into depth about size and neatness instead of leaving, especially after 2 previous “attacks”

    Not to mention him telling John Doe all about how he made it in the business. That would be something that a celeb who is in the process of being rejected would share. This is not the way someone who is being sexually assulted would react, especially as he is not a total professional, just a guy who puts ads in a paper to get clients

    And LMFAO at the “skill and dexterity” of the burger man

      • Hmmm says:

        Also, why did he have to pick him up if they were meeting at a bungalow at the Beverley Hills Hotel? Wouldn’t it draw attention to Travolta to walk into a bungalow at this hotel with this guy? Do the paps give this place a wide berth?

        And why didn’t he just leave, walk to the main part of the hotel and call the police? Instead, he waits 4 months and then calls his lawyer LMFAO

        Sorry, I still have the giggles over him “watching his skill and dexterity in food preparation” Jackie Collins can use this in her next book

    • Tapioca says:

      Well, we called BS on the anonymous herpes guy, and he paid up to the tune of millions!

      As for his coming out, at this point I think people couldn’t care less about JT being gay, but it’s his living a complete lie for so many years that would be used as a stick to beat him.

    • LeeLoo says:

      I think John likes some man strange but I tend to think he knows where to go and get it. My best guess is that he made a pass at the guy and when the guy said no he left it at that and dude saw $$$$.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        Exactly – we all know JT is gay. We all know he has a rep at certain spas where this behavior is encouraged.

        Assuming that guy #1 did not know it was JT calling, he had to know what was up the minute he saw JT.

        #2 sounds a bit more credible because he left and may have witnesses that he told but he also said JT was banned from the spa so when he saw JT again, he knew what was up.

  5. Madison says:

    JT’s lawyers can deny all they want, but John is gay, gay, gay. I wish he were out and proud instead of living a double life with a sham wife and family. Wasn’t Kelly one of George Clooney’s girls back in the day, guess she likes her men gay as long as they are rich and famous.

  6. Jackie says:

    carrie fisher outed him. everybody knows by now that he likes to have sex with men.

    why all the denials? i guess because he is like some old gay guy from the 1950′s…hides and gets kinky behind closed doors with the help.

    times have changed, john.

  7. birdie says:

    It is known in Hollywood that he is bisexual, he has adventures, Kelly probably knows. I believe JT and his accuser did something and now John Doe wants a paycheck. Poor JT!

  8. Jennifer says:

    Oh no! Can’t be! He is my future husband and father of my nine children!

  9. lucy2 says:

    There have been so many rumors like this about him, I’m willing to believe it happens. But I don’t know about this particular case – it’d be a lot more convincing if the guy had filed a police report as opposed to a $2 million lawsuit.

  10. mln76 says:

    He should have just come out after Jett died everyone would have had sympathy for him then and it would have been an opportunity to inspire and educate people as opposed to this humiliation. I believe that repression is what caused him to be such a reckless sex addict. I also think his so-called Church and his wife are blackmailing him.
    Still there is no excuse for sexual harassment.

  11. Jayna says:

    Anyone can tell this is fake, just like Bieber. The way Travolta taped down to him, threatening manner is not Travolta. Secondly, wealthy men don’t have to take to Craig’s list, picking him up and bragging about the celebrity world.

    Travolta says he wasn’t in town and is suing attorney and the guy. I think he is at the very least bisexual, but that doesn’t make this story true.

    • MaggiesPies says:

      There was a time that I too would try to reason out the actions of celebrities as if they were normal and rational human beings. I am gladly now cured of that delusion.

      Remember Tiger Woods and his array of cocktail waitresses and porn stars? Richest sports star in the world couldnt engage a discreet high class madam, right?

      Remember that A list movie star turned Governor of one of the worlds largest economies siring a child with the maid, leaving her in the job and keeping the secret for over a decade?

      Remember that star CNN business anchor arrested whilst strolling central park for a hook up at 3 am with a sex toy, a rope around his bazoongs and Meth?

      Remember that US Senator in that bathroom stall in the airport? And the congressmen with nude pics online?

      Remember that famous british actor receiving “assistance” from a street prostitute in his car?

      Some people simply think they are above getting caught. Maybe they like the thrill. It really wouldnt surprise me if Travolta is making his hookups via CraigsList. Or attending bathhouses as has also been reported.

  12. Bad Gal Addiction says:

    With 200 bucks per hour for a massage there better be some “extras”.

  13. Sisi says:

    I associate the letters JT with Justin Timberlake… The title of this piece made no sense to me XD

  14. flan says:

    When a woman gets raped, they get told it’s their fault because of clothes/ attitude/being female, but when a guy like JT alledgedly gropes someone they can sue for 2 million.

    Crazy.

  15. Jazziejaz says:

    Ok so hes gay, why the hell does he have to be so sleazy about it. Cant he just find himself a nice boyfriend and call him his business partner, move him into the family compound and wear matching “business partnership” rings. You know, like Hugh Jackman did with Palermo. Or, if they are not ready for the “business partnership” rings they can just do like James Franco. Ya know, call him you business partner and move him into your NY Loft and say its for ease of business.

    My heart bleeds for his family though.

    • Leleti says:

      ^this. At this point it doesnt matter whether his wife is paid to beard or is self-deluded or is just very open minded or is lesbian too. This degree of constant humiliation will break anyone. He doesnt need to make the pretense so obvious, especially seeing as he is the bigger beneficiary of the bearding.

      I hope she smashes up that black SUV with his own golf clubs ala Erin Woods.

    • mln76 says:

      Its pretty simple he WANTS to get caught. He’s not happy with his closeted life. If he was he’d be discreet and to his best to protect his family from scandal. Kelly thought the miracle baby from JT’s frozen sperm would keep him quiet and calm him down but whether consciously or subconsciously he’s going to be more reckless until he’s completely out.

      • Kimbob says:

        Yeah, I think since Jett died (I mean, I’ve ALWAYS HEARD of these rumors) but maybe since Jett died, John I’m sure is hyper-aware that he’s already been outted.

        Maybe this is his way of “acting up/out” his frustration. I mean, it’s nice Kelly had the baby & what-not, but people, just like pet animals, just CANNOT BE REPLACED BY ANOTHER.

  16. moopsie says:

    I can see this being true. Being famous you have access to so much sex it becomes an addiction.

  17. Nanea says:

    And so it happens again…

    The $ciento-Bots coming to this site, defending one of their own.

  18. Julie says:

    i believe he likes guys and i can believe that people assault other people sexually.

    but i always think: what if its not true? those claims will never vanish even if it was proven it was wrong. thats the bad side of rumours.

    it wouldnt be hard to come up with something like that. its widely known and if you can cash in…i could make claims about lindsay lohan and drugs. wouldnt take too much fantasy and all people would believe me.

    im not saying its true or it isnt im just saying media should wait with reports in those matters until the courts made a decision.

  19. Neelyo says:

    Let’s talk about how horrible he looks. Embrace your age, John. The shoe polish dyed wig and magic marker eyebrows just make you look older. I wonder if he dyes the hair on his privates too.

    • Chatcat says:

      The masseus would know! Anyways…I agree I don’t care if he bones every gay man in every town he visits if he and they want too but like Beyonce, the lies and fabrications of the life they lead is what festers in me. Like why do some of these celebs think the rest of humanity is stupid? He gross’s me out on so many levels (always has) he and Tom Cruise should just come out now…their careers are over anyway so they might as well be happy in who they really are and stop lying and damaging their children! (I hold their wives as accountable for perpetuating the lie!)

    • Otter says:

      Yeah, his face just looks SO WEIRD now!

  20. Bad Irene says:

    Eek! I would be scared to say anything about anyone in the “church” of scientology, They don’t play around when attacked. The guy bringing this lawsuit either has a case of the dumbs or has the crazies. Backs out of thread, keeping an eye on thetans and making the sign of the cross.

    Seriously everyone needs to read Inside Scientology, very good read

  21. Cathy says:

    I never realized how funny looking he is until I looked at that second picture. He’s wierd looking.

  22. NYC_girl says:

    I think it’s really sad that in 2012 a gay man can’t live his life truthfully, whether it’s him, Tom Cruise, or whoever else. Meaning, if he wants to keep it private – OK. But to get “married” and act hetero, involving someone else in the lie I think is really unfortunate. Esp for this guy – it’s not like he’s new on the scene, he’s been around for over 30 years. I can see why Tom Cruise might not have come out when Top Gun was so big, but seriously. Must be a very painful way to live, no matter how much money they have.

    • Adrien says:

      not a lie if you are bisexual.

    • Lee says:

      Closeting still happens for sure, and not just in the celebrity world. My friend’s ex husband is still closeted, with a new baby on the way(!!). But his homophobic parents are still alive, and he won’t be coming out until they’re gone. It is wrong on all levels. My thoughts on these cowardly men: they’re profoundly selfish, and just don’t care who they hurt in the service of their deceitful life. And they know their (ex)wives won’t tell, to protect the children.

      • Kimbob says:

        Well, of course I believe this. There are TOO TOO MANY GAY RUMORS OUT THERE, & also from what’s been previously-discussed about Travolta on this site, this story just rings true to me.

        Just like how @MaggiesPies so DEFTLY points out…there are WAY TOO MANY CELEBS AND POLITICIANS AND WHATNOTS that have screwed up royally along the way!!!

        Anyways, Travolta likes his dong. Sorry, but this suit has made its’ rounds throughout the new these last two days…there has to be some merit to it. This “incident” has Travolta stamped all over it

        I think the plaintiff would have dropped it by now if they just thought they’d get a quick payoff.

        Oh, & BTW, this crap about Travolta being “out of town,” please don’t forget that Travolta is a VERY ACCOMPLISHED PILOT. If Travolta sensed there could be a fallout from this incident, as he very may well have, he could HAVE EASILY HOPPED ON ONE OF HIS PLANES/JETS (he has more than one) & FLOWN CROSS-COUNTRY just to establish such.

        Also, this rings true to me because it said that Travolta DOUBLED this guys massage fee. That sounds right to me. Travolta, w/his largesse ego, erroneously thinking that this everyday masseuse dude would just QUIETLY POCKET THIS $$$ AND GO AWAY.

        In Travolta’s warped mind (and MANY in H-wood) this is just “par for the course,” to double a person’s fee….there’s an “unwritten rule” in such, I believe in H-wood.

        It also rings true w/me that after paying this dude DOUBLE, Travolta, and his insufferable ego, called the masseuse a “LOSER,” because he did not participate in Travolta’s overatures!

        Lookit, this massage therapist (masseuse is really an outdated term) as I believe they do prefer to be called “massage therapists,” but ANYWAY, this massage therapist could, in fact, be gay. But SO WHAT???!!!

        I have way too many gay friends and relatives & they are excellent/UNCANNY in their ability to “spot” those of their own persuasion.

        You know what I think? I think Travolta probably “correctly sensed” this massage therapist WAS/IS GAY, & Travolta erroneously assumed the dude would just GO FOR IT once he presented his intentions.

        For all we know this massage therapist is probably gay, but in a MONAGAMOUS RELATIONSHIP, & was seriously offended when Travolta leered/made passes at him. I know, I know, I CERTAINLY DO NOT HAVE ANY EVIDENCE to prove what I think, but until I’m proved wrong, this is what I truly believe.

    • fabgrrl says:

      Maybe he’s not living a lie. Sure, he likes to bone random dudes, but that doesn’t preclude him being happy in his domestic life. There are men, who while sexually attracted to men, still want a wife and children. Now, if this comes from homophobia and repression – hide your “dirty” desires and pretend to be hetero – then that is wrong. But it could also be how someone really feels. Sexual love, eros, isn’t the only kind of love. I am thinking of men like Cole Porter and Oscar Wilde – loving husbands by all accounts who liked to get in on with young guys. As long as no one is being lied to, what’s the harm?

      Also, we have to remember, being out and proud gay is a quite new thing. John Travolta is almost 60. An entirely different generation than many of us who post here. Certain things just weren’t done, talked about, acknowledged. It’s not as simple as just “coming out” for older people. Travolta may not even think of himself as “gay”.

  23. Katie Too says:

    As mentioned above, Carrie Fisher outed him in an Advocate article. Sure, the masseur is looking for his 15 minutes, but I’m shocked anyone still believes he isn’t gay.

  24. Bubulle says:

    JT is definitely gay or at least bi, that being said you can tell this guy is only here for the money, the NE published his story two months ago, I guess it wasn’t enough for him hence the lawsuit.

    http://www.gossipcop.com/john-travolta-gay-prostitute-prostitution-national-enquirer-scandal-massage-therapist-masseur/

  25. Annie says:

    I have a close gay friend who was approached by JT at a spa in Miami. My friend says it was clear JT was cruising and very comfortable in the gay scene. JT asked him out for Colombian coffee but got spooked when he realized how high profile my pal was and left. My Friend said no question he was gay, and he was sad for him because he seemed very sweet….

  26. Krock says:

    Even if JT is gay or bi or whatever, I don’t buy this story. I just don’t. Lets sit back and watch to see if he can prove he was 2000+ miles away like his lawyer says he was.

    It just sounds over the top sordid. I don’t see JT threatening and cursing at the guy. I just don’t. It would make no sense for him to start a war with some dude since he’s (supposedly) trying to keep it in the closet.

    • Jayna says:

      Exactly. John is way too sweet to be threatening or cruel. This was filed and before it was the attorney contacts them threatening lawsuit or hey let’s settle it quietly. In other words, blackmail. If this was true, John would have paid him off before it got to this. Many file unprovable lawsuits and the celebs settle as a nuisance claim because it’s cheaper. John has the stigma of people thinking this already and they probably thought they could blackmail him into a payoff so gay rumors don’t surface again or the guy is nuts and believed it was Travolta. What legitimate masseuse is on Craigslist and is picked up on a street and taken to a hotel?

  27. SleepyJane says:

    Hold on. Let’s discuss this chain wallet he’s wearing. Grow up, old-timer.

    Lawsuits are always suspect, particularly for criminal acts.

  28. Asli says:

    Can’t say that I’m surprised.

  29. RuddyZooKeeper says:

    Why the hell do these people jump straight to money before filing criminal charges? I get sexually assaulted and I’m looking for justice first and maybe I squeeze you for money later to cover the cost of my freaking therapy! Not saying this story is true or false, but if all of the sordid details are true (not just a brush across the groin or something), why simply a punitive damage lawsuit?

    I’m becoming jaded. It’s as if these alleged victims willingly and knowingly put themselves in potentially compromising and dangerous situations hoping to win the molestation lottery.

    **Sorry. I just realized how insensitive this sounds to those who have legitimately faced abuses. As an assault survivor, I truly don’t mean to minimize the reality of the suffering and oftentimes impossibility of achieving justice through the court system. And that’s what makes me scream when I hear about people bringing false charges for the purpose of extortion.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I fail to see how this is insensitive. On the contrary, I think you have some very valid observations. Has nothing to do with “blaming the victim”, just saying that when someone is automatically looking to cash in, it kind of undermines/trivializes the horror of a violent, sexual attack. Again, this is why living in such a litigious society is more often harmful than ultimately beneficial.

    The masseust (spelling?) knew exactly what was going to happen and I believe set up JT! Just my opinion, I have no further info!

    • Trillion says:

      I own a massage company and JT used our service. He did not sexually assault his (male) therapist, but he did pressure him to have a nude sauna with him before the session.
      BTW, let’s all just please remove the words “masseuse” and “masseur” from the lexicon. It’s massage therapist. Gender neutral, much more professional sounding. As a massage therapist myself, this drives me nuts.

  34. Kate says:

    He is gay, gay, gay!!! Oh & hi to all the $ church that joined in on this blog talk. Your devotion is Aaamazing! It must be a slow week for Tom!! LOlz!!

  35. Alexis says:

    Just b/c he’s gay or bi (which I think he is — too many rumors for too long) doesn’t mean this happened. (Just like just because Biebs might get it in with groupies didn’t mean that crazy girl had his kid) I’ll just wait and see…

  36. DT says:

    Whether or not he is gay – I doubt very seriously that he would indulge in this type of harassment. I call BS on this one.

  37. Kim says:

    What celebrity with assistants galore schedules his own massage from an ad then meets the masseuse in his car by himself??

    There are a million places to go in LA to get a massage & a thousand masseuses who would come direct to him at home or in his hotel room.

    The jig has been up for so long on John. Why doesnt he give it up? He is just going to get himself in trouble by groping or meeting strange guys in bath houses.

  38. valleymiss says:

    I believe that JT is gay, or at least bi. But I don’t believe this suit. I don’t think JT harrasses/sexually assaults anyone.

  39. maggiegrace says:

    What about that photograph going around a couple years ago where he was about to get on a plane, and he was, oh, kissing another man ON THE MOUTH. Not gay. Yeah, right — I’m with Carrie Fisher: we know and we don’t care. But we’re not stupid so quit insulting us with the bold-face lies.

  40. LeeLoo says:

    Normally I am anti-conspiracy theory on everything. However, this is one conspiracy theory I do believe in.

    Let’s remember though, John’s career took off in the 70s and 80s. It was still the days of Cary Grant style ways of dealing with homosexuality. Leading men in Hollywood were not allowed to be gay. He has been so conditioned by that mentality that I doubt he realizes what he is doing anymore.

    Also, step in Co$, they also are effectively a bearding brothel in how they handle this. They find willing beards for their gay men. I think Co$ trains their women to be beards for these men.

    That being said, it’s no secret John is gay. It’s never been a secret. I mean it took him forever to get married. Before that no one ever saw him with women. There was hardly any gossip on his dating habits. It makes me think he laid low at the height of the AIDS epidemic and didn’t do anything with anyone for fear he had it. It’s also the EXACT same time he found religion.

    Oh and now a SECOND male masseuse has come forward. I sense it’s gonna go Tiger Woods by the end of the week.

    • Jayna says:

      Actually. he dated Marilu Henner for quite a while back I’n her Taxi TV show days because I remember her talking about it. He also was in love with an older woman when he was in his early twenties. she fell ill with breast cancer and he stayed with her through her illness until she died. I think he is gay but has bi-sexual leanings, so enjoys women. Marilu said he was a very sexual man.

      • LeeLoo says:

        Yeah. He “dated” Jenner. They were two successful TV stars and that was a studio match made in heaven.

        I’ve heard the story of him and the older woman. It sounds very suspect and fishy to me.

      • fabgrrl says:

        That was Diana Hyland, and she died in his arms.

      • LeeLoo says:

        @fabgrrl and Jayna Wasn’t she his mom in the Boy in the Plastic Bubble? For me it’s fishy and suspect not because of whether or not it happened. It’s fishy and suspect because I wonder what his true motives were. I honestly believe there was some genuine affection there but I don’t think it’s as sad and romantic as everyone has made it to be. I think she protected him and was his best friend. I always found John Travolta’s past to be somewhat….questionable… in terms of what his descriptions of events.

        Also forgive my auto-correct in my previous post. I meant to say Henner not Jenner. Although I totally would totally believe him and Bruce Jenner had a thing.

      • Maguita says:

        ARE YOU SERIOUS??? THE BIG BLUE!!!! Le Grand Bleu with Jean-Marc Barr, Jean Reno and Roseanna Arquette. MUST WATCH, in original bilingual version.

        Did I use enough caps for ya? Did I insist enough on you watching that movie? Did you know it would go better if you wear your beach gear, drink ouzo, and eat tabouleh while watching that movie? Just so you feel the Mediterranean salty hot air.

        Also, Luc B. has written all those cheesy but goody Transporter movies with Jason Statham, Taxi, The Professional (Jean Reno), Joan of Ark (with Mila), and countless action and horror movies.

        Yes, all hail the mighty Luc Besson.

    • MayaMae says:

      I think you might mean Rock Hudson – who was gay. I’ve never heard that Cary Grant was gay.

      • LeeLoo says:

        Cary Grant was bisexual. He had been married 5 or 6 times but there are several verifiable rumors of him having sex with men. Many of the women he married were merely beards and covers for him. He was George Clooney, only he married the women he was in contract with. I tend to think of him as bisexual though because I think there were a couple of his wives he genuinely cared about and loved. But he was known to have sex with men.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        Cary Grant has one daughter who is in her early 40s – with Dyan Cannon who was at least 40 years his junior.

        I got the feeling he was mostly gay before then.

        Rock Hudson only had one contract wife. He refused after that. He was very, very discreet but it was also a very, very different time. I don’t think he would have remained closeted had he been a young actor now nor do I think JT would have made it closeted past the 80s were the media 30 years ago the same as it is now.

        There are too many of us with cellphones and blogs to hide now.

  41. Ginger says:

    I had a little girl crush on him in the 70′s and early 80′s and even then my mom said she thought he was gay. She has great “gaydar” too.

  42. Jayna says:

    LeeLoo, Fabgrl is right, it was Diana Hyland. He adored her and it wasn’t some manufactured relationship. There was something really strong between them. He dated Marilu before he met Diana and then later they met up again. I said before I think he is more gay than bi-sexual but definitely has a bisexual side to him. Marilu wrote
    about their relationship, which was off and on for years, and they definitely had a lot of sex. she wrote the book when she was older and comes across refreshingly honest. She probably knew
    his leanings but back then probably was open-minded.

    My point is I think he has loved women but think he is probably gay. Fran Drescher’s husband came out gay after she left him, but she said they
    had a great sex life and he was obsessed with her and angry when she left him (not because he was attracted to men).

    Whatever Kelly and John’s relationship is, I think he married her because of rumors and to save
    his career but they lasted because they have a love for each other. They spent way too much time together all these years not to be
    tight, whatever their understanding is. They are in
    tiny Ocala, Florida, at their fly-in home all the time as a couple and loved by the community.
    He and Kelly are see live an hour away. I think
    their relationship has changed though. They
    probably have some kind of open marriage about his attraction to men as long it’s not full-on intercourse it sounds like, just happy endings. Kelly is stunning and could leave him. So there must be love between still.

    • LeeLoo says:

      I just read this article from The Mail that came out after Jett’s death about the subject. I will agree with you on this one and semi-recant some of my previous statements. I do however think the Marilu Henner relationship was manufactured though, at least at first. Maybe afterwards they came to some sort of arrangement. Or maybe they did love one another. I don’t know. John’s always been an odd book to read when it comes to his private life. But I believe he does have a lot of skeletons in his closet.

      That being said, I think he treats Kelly very well. Whatever their relationship is it is something both are okay with. What bothers me is the idea they push that they are a normal heterosexual couple. I mean I will agree that I think this lawsuit is 90% bs but there has been too much gossip and rumors over the years in regards to Travolta’s extracurricular activities that I believe that the most basic aspect is true. John Travolta has gay sex from time to time. At the very least John should at least come out and say he is bisexual and that his wife is okay with it. Eventually irrefutable evidence will surface, why not beat it to the punch and just come out as bi? It saves everyone’s face and it makes him a softer icon towards the LGBT community which has been known to have profound positive PR for those who are open with their sexuality. I just fail to see why he doesn’t spin this in his favor and be honest instead of issuing empty threats.

  43. Jordan says:

    I just don’t even know what to say about this story. On one hand, not surprised but on the other, it could be totally fabricated. Not that I don’t think JT is at least bi-sexual, but I don’t know if he would be desperate enough to grope, etc. Seems like he be able to get some for just being JT.

    On a side note, I always find it funny when they call him JT. I was like, Oh-Justin Timberlake finally came out? LMAO

    • Jayna says:

      What I don’t get is the second masseuse. He worked through a hotel. Most masseuses are straight. Why would John think he could come on to a legitimate masseuse at a legitimate hotel and try to force interaction, even touching him. Straight men are homophobic if a man
      touches them. I find it hard to believe that story.
      It isn’t like the other one who was on Craigslist, which would make me think a gay going to meet
      someone for a hookup.

      If any of this is true, John is out of controt and not discreet,

      • LeeLoo says:

        It really leaves me to believe that while the core issue is true (John has gay sex) that these stories are BS. I think John knows where to go for his discreet hookups. I think that John may have made a pass at both masseurs but they refused he left it at that. But the first guy realized that a lawsuit could come of this if he exaggerated and the second guy is jumping on the gravy train.

      • mln76 says:

        @Jayna
        Why would John think he could come on to a legitimate masseuse at a legitimate hotel and try to force interaction, even touching him.

        The rumors of John being banned from certain hotels for inappropriate behavior directed @ the male spa employees have been around for years.
        For what it’s worth several years ago I asked a friend who’s in the spa world about JT and he talked about rumors pretty similar to what the second man describes. I don’t think that’s a coincidence.
        What you have to understand is in general when a high end client comes into an establishment they are treated like gods and the management would rather do anything but say ‘No’ to an A-lister. For someone like John who has unlimited resources and connections it’s perfectly believable that he’s gotten away with this for years. I do believe that this will end up being a ‘Tiger Woods’ type scandal with more and more people coming forward.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        Masseuses are straight? I actually never gave it much real thought but since it’s such a touchy feely job I thought they would be mostly gay.

        Touchy feely not in a sexual way but in a job that attracts more women kind of way.

        Maybe I just hope they are gay since I don’t want them coping a feel?

  44. JRenee says:

    Maybe the rumors are true that he wants out of living the lie or maybe he needs more thrills to get off. Sounds like some of this may be true and some added to sell the story!

    • Maguita says:

      I always thought, since the tragic death of his son, that he has had enough of all the lies, and wants out of it all: marriage, and church.

      His acts are looking more and more suicidal. Career suicidal, not life ending. He is like the serial cheater who wants to get caught, because he doesn’t have the courage to tell his wife and break it off, but by his actions he is pushing her to end it.

      • LeeLoo says:

        Actually, I just read something on TMZ that I agree with. I agree, Maguita that I think he’s been different since Jett’s death. I think he’s wanted out Co$ since Jett’s death.

        I think Co$ is behind all of this. I think John is trying to make a break from them and this may be Co$ trying to exact revenge by outing him in this way and trying to put an end to his career.

        If this is the case, he needs to come out NOW and be honest. He has so much ammo on the church it’s ridiculous. If the church is blackmailing him this way then he would be a much more sympathetic figure.

      • Jayna says:

        But you forgot one thing. He and Kelly had another baby. One thing about John, he is with his family almost all the time, homeschooling the children, bringing his family. I can’t see him splitting from Kelly now that little Benjamn is in his life. You can see the joy back in his face after so much sadness.

      • LeeLoo says:

        I 100% agree Jayna. But at the same time the man gets away sometimes. But I also am wondering if he wants to avoid making the same mistake he made with Jett and he wants to get out of Co$. This could be their way of punishing him (and the family?) for trying to leave. This is fishy but now that I think about it, I think it has Co$ written all over it. If you’ve noticed he hasn’t been the most faithful cultie since Jett’s death.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        I thought he was trying to get out of the $church ever since Jett died, but Kelly wants to stay and he wants to be near his kids.

        If he leaves the $church he will never see his kids again – ask Nicole Kidman.

        @LeeLoo – if they make him out to be a sexual predator that is a slam dunk for him to never see his kids.

        I’ve met him a few times… once with Olivia Newton John at a restaurant and once at a company event where he had is whole family – that was one of their first appearances after Jett passed.

        He seemed like a very nice guy and regardless of what may go on behind closed doors, they were a lovely loving family.

        It would kill him to lose those kids.

      • Maguita says:

        What I’m going to say on this is a very personal opinion, and has nothing to do with any gossip rags, blogs, or hints from interviews.

        I believe that Kelly, and the church, had agreed to get pregnant (via insemination) in order to keep John within the folds of the Church. I believe after Jett’s death, he was very ready to break away, especially since the church had always taken a hard line against autism, and had never authorized John to state publicly that his kid was autistic. I think he had had enough of the bullshit and double standards. Many couples who have lost a child get pregnant again, in order to heal the pain. I think though in this case, it was to keep John within the ranks.

        BTW, Lisa Marie Presley is reputed to have broken up with the church, and is hiding out, sequestrating herself within her compound so not to be bothered by aggressive members of the cos.

      • LeeLoo says:

        My personal opinion: I think Kelly wants out too. Reading her most recent article where she talks about breastfeeding Ben (against Co$ rules) suggests she is just as fed up as he is.

        In reality I think Jett’s death brought them closer as a family. I think Kelly and John are in sync on this one.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        @Jayna They used Benjamin to trap him.

      • mln76 says:

        @Maguita that’s also my personal opinion. I think his reckless behavior is due to the fact that he’s trying to ‘out’ himself.

      • LeeLoo says:

        @Zen since you have some inside info I have to ask: Do you think Co$ is behind the lawsuit? Do you think this is an effort to get him to be more faithful and tow the line. The whole lawsuit screams Co$ blackmail so I think they are involved. But since you work in the business I was wondering if you knew whether or not this would be a tactic Co$ would take to make him obedient again.

  45. Roma says:

    I agree that CoS got ahold of both JT & Tommy during the AIDS crisis. And I think both have been brainwashed to believe CoS can “cure” them of their gayness if they just live with the hetro wife they’ve been assigned.

    I think CoS has covered for years and everytime the boys “slip”, it’s just extra auditing & money in the CoS bank.

    JT is done with all the lying but trapped. I truly feel sorry for him.

    • LeeLoo says:

      1) There are a lot of things I believe about Tommy but being gay is not one of them. I seriously do not believe he is gay. Mysogynist manic depressive sadistic liar with a Napoleon complex, yes. Gay, no. Tom is the poster child of Co$ and I bet they got a lot of scary things on him. Men with Napoleon complexes are scary and dysfunctional in different ways.

      2)I do think you are 100% on how they got John into it. I think between the death of Diane and then scared over the AIDS they told him they could make him 100% straight. They have used those audits to beat him into submission but I think between the death of Jett, the birth of Benjamin and Kelly’s recent statements going against the Co$, he’s done with them and is prepared to lose it all to rid of them once and for all and I bet Kelly is 100% behind him.

  46. ZenB!tch says:

    Is Tom Cruise gay, sterile or both? I’ve never gotten a clear answer on that one.

    • LeeLoo says:

      I DON’T believe the rumors that Tom Cruise is gay. But I do believe he is a sterile man who has bipolar disorder and a Napoleon complex.

      • Aotearovian says:

        I tend to agree. The easy answer is “Tom Cruise is gay and has contractual arrangements with his wives” but I have a hunch it’s not quite that straightforward. There is certainly a very unusual personality there, and an extraordinary degree of discipline. Whatever he’s up to, very few people have all the information.

      • Jayna says:

        I agree. Tom isn’t gay. I thought he was sterile until he knocked up Katie within the first month or so of dating her and plus, Nicole has said she miscarried early on in their marriage. And Nicole had a hard time getting pregnant with Keith. So I don’t even think he’s sterile. He is insane, though. His speech and promo video for Scientology are mindboggling and frightening.

      • LeeLoo says:

        I don’t think Tom is Suri’s father. I really don’t. I see more Chris Klein in her than I see Tom. He could be her father but somehow there has always been something fishy there. The overlap of Katie with Chris and Tom was really fast. I think Co$ told him to buck up and say she was his.

        I think both Tom has fertility issues. I think Nicole’s main issues afterwards with Keith was more due to her age. I think her early miscarriage was due to Tom getting her pregnant with defective sperm (as men with low sperm counts tend to produce more defective sperm). It can happen it just takes awhile.

      • Amanda_M87 says:

        I agree with you about Tom Cruise. I think Tom is actually trying to cover up the fact that he has a mental illness. I read somewhere that his father had mental problems too, so it could be genetic and therefore why Tom may not actually have biological children.

    • mln76 says:

      His first wife Mimi Rodgers strongly, strongly hinted he was gay and outright said that he was sterile and impotent since then the gay rumors have dodged him.
      Ted C (who is infamously unreliable) seems to say that he makes his liasons sign iron-clad non-disclosure agreements (which I can totally see). Still I’ve never heard anything concrete even from the columnists(although they all seem to agree about his sexuality just never give details) and he’s been extremely litigious whenever gay rumors surface about him.

      • LeeLoo says:

        I still don’t buy it. I know the rumors are there but with Tom I think there is a much darker sexual history that goes beyond just homosexuality. I think there’s a history there even the worst of the tabloids will not confront with him. Tom has violent and sick deranged man written all over him but I don’t see him gay.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        Iron clad agreements to sleep with Tom Cruise. Who the H would sign that?

        Thanks for the refresher. I remember his being confirmed as sterile before. Poor little Suri – she may be pampered and live a nice life as a little girl but she is going to be trapped by these people for life.

      • Aotearovian says:

        I remember she talked about their marriage after the divorce, and said the beginning of the end was when he decided to adopt a very ascetic, monkish lifestyle, including no sex, in order to “preserve the purity of his instrument”.

        Nicole Kidman, however, was adamant that he was heterosexual and that they had a normal sexual relationship, and of course she would say that, but based on her reaction when he left her, I think she regarded it as a genuine marriage. (And I think that was largely about her refusal to join the Co$, ‘suppressive persons’ and all that.)

        Which makes me think he is capable of keeping up appearances with his nearest and dearest, whatever his natural proclivities.

  47. ZenB!tch says:

    I don’t see this as a “Tiger Woods” situation at all. Tiger Woods was a hetero man cheating on his hetero wife that he vowed to honor and be faithful to.

    JT is a gay man who might be in a monogamous relationship were he allowed to be in one. He is trapped for whatever reason. He sneaks out when he can but his situation does not enable him to have a true significant other.

    JT is not “cheating” on his wife because unless she is the biggest idiot in the world she is aware of his sexuality and accepts it as a condition of her perfect life. A lot of women I know would be very happy as wealthy a mom with a good father for their kids. Sex drives vary.

    Tiger was about an arrogant and vile man. This is about an arrogant and vile cult.

    • mln76 says:

      Lets not forget that whether or not you choose to believe what the men are saying what the accusations amount to is sexual assault. If more men come forward and if the establishments that have banned John for similar behavior at their spas are forced to testify it will end up a greater scandal equivalent to Tiger Woods.

      • LeeLoo says:

        Unfortunately, I do see that happening. There’s too many stories about this and I can see many of them coming to light now that these two masseurs have come forward.

        You are going to have the media sniffing around for more massage therapists to come forward and you are going to have any massage therapist who is slightly unscrupulous and has even touched John say something.

    • LeeLoo says:

      I really do believe that despite his sexuality, they are a family unit.

      Kelly’s most recent interview which she dissented the views of CoS on breastfeeding and was breastfeeding Ben instead of giving him that weird barley/corn syrup mixture. It makes me think that neither of them are happy with Scientology at the point and both are ready to go. Kelly may be being more diplomatic about it. I don’t think John would make a move unless Kelly was on board and vice versa. I think they do have a strange little family that works for them. Even if Kelly wants to stay, I think John is emotionally done with them. But something tells me there would never have been a whiff of dissent or speaking against the church if there wasn’t a shared opinion about their position. Both of them in the past two years have made subtle jabs at CoS.

      I actually believe Kelly has been smart and hasn’t given them any info they can use against her. Or if she has, we may hear about it soon.

      Either way, on one side CoS is involved in this. But I really do think that they are trying to scare John into submission with this.

  48. Kel says:

    Nevermind if any of it is true or not – my heart aches for his family and for his children. The gossip is tragic for them and can only lead to hurt for all involved.

    • LucyOriginal says:

      Kel, I was going to say that when I read your post. I completely agree with you + his sexual preference is none of my business.

    • irishserra says:

      I do feel bad for his children, but not his wife. She is party to the enabling that makes her husband believe he can treat young men/boys however he wants and get away with it. While his sexual preference is not our business, the sexual harassment IS. Everyone has the right to be safe and secure and not be treated inappropriately. JT has always felt he is above the law in this regard and therefore, the “gossip” may be the surest means of protection for some of those who find themselves in the position to have to wait on him in one way or another.

  49. Moi says:

    It’s about dang time he got busted for this kind of behavior. He’s been doing this spa and massage stuff for awhile.

    He belongs to a totally homophobic organization (Scientology), plus Kelly is supposedly a lesbian. What people do in their bedroom is their thing, but I think he’s been crossing the line as far as putting the moves on guys for quite some time. There will be a lot more guys coming out of the woodwork before this is over.

  50. skuddles says:

    Geez I still remember a time when John Travolta was the epitome of hetero – a lot of women couldn’t help but lust over him. Grease, Saturday Night Fever, Urban Cowboy, etc – he was the hotness. So it’s still a big shock to realize he’s just a poofy old perv who trolls bathhouses and spas for sleazy sex. Shudder….

  51. irishserra says:

    I find myself being agitated that JT seems to think his celebrity status entitles him to behave however he wants, toward whomever he wants… and then deny, deny, deny. Only the most delusional are buying his BS.

    If he doesn’t want to officially come out, that’s fine; it’s his own damned business… but he needs to keep his hands to himself and stop assuming every boy on the spa scene is his for the taking. His arrogance is disgusting and the enabling by his wife and handlers is appalling.

  52. grngrl says:

    First of all, “JT” (those initials kind of freak me out, too, BTW) knew EXACTLY what he was getting by hiring a $200/hour “masseuse” from Craigslist–and the “masseuse” knew exactly what he what he was selling. I’ve hired many massage therapists through hotels and other establishments and there’s NEVER been a remote suggestion of impropriety–just a proper, therapeutic massage. “Masseuse” #1, at the very least, sees an opportunity to cash in and is attempting to do so.

    Secondly, it’s been common knowledge in Hollyweird for YEARS that JT is homosexual and frequents spas/saunas, masseuses/massage parlors, WeHo hotspots and pays for the company of male escorts. He’s never been “Tommy Boy” discreet about it (anyone remember TC’s male escort “friend” in the early ’90s who literally disappeared right before he was about to tell all, allegedly at the hands of Co$?? Google it; it’s HW legend), but he HAS always been rather reckless, especially for someone with his means. I believe he’s been “done” with the facade for a while now, and since Jett’s death he’s been REALLY done. But the all-controlling Scientolofreaks have been blackmailing him for years (a la Tommy Boy), and he’s been stuck. I believe Kelly knows and is fully in on the charade–it’s been mutually beneficial for her. She got a family, major name recognition and access to a LOT of money. I also think Kelly and JT have a “best friend” sort of relationship and totally have each other’s backs.

    I believe JT’s had enough and is beating Miscavige and his minions at their own game. I believe JT engineered this “leaking” and encouraged this “lawsuit” HIMSELF, because he’s tired of the charade (rumor has it he’s been wanting to be “out”–of both the closet and the p$eudo-religion–for years now, which is why he’s been acting out and taking such crazy risks). This is his big “F*ck you” to the Scientolofreaks who’ve been suppressing him for years…he doesn’t care anymore. He knows he’s already been accepted by his colleagues and the public, and he’s confident he’ll be accepted by the (very few) fans who still think he’s straight. It’s pretty damn clear he doesn’t care who knows anymore. I believe Kelly is equally disillusioned by the Co$ (Jett? No barley water for Benjamin?) and will stand beside him (she has her own reasons for her years of bearding…not sure whether or not she’s ready to reveal her own “issues”). Because they’re BOTH done, there won’t be an issue with “alienation” from the kids. JT got himself into an unsavory situation–can’t believe it’s taken THIS long, but that’s the Co$’s money and influence for you–and he’s taking the opportunity to FINALLY come OUT. It may take a minute…but it’s gonna happen. Trust.

    Congrats, John; it’s about time you’re allowed to be who you really are, and we’ll all still love you.

    Something just doesn’t add up here. I totally beleive that he made a pass at the guy, but if he (the masseur) was actually assaulted, he would gone to police, not sold his story to the National Enquirer.

    These people can smell an opportunity a mile away and Travolta is so easy.
