John Travolta wants one of his many sexual-assault lawsuits dismissed

These are still some of the funniest photos ever, right? I love when John Travolta and Kelly Preston kissed each other awkwardly for the cameras, on a red carpet, shortly after half a dozen dudes came out to claim that Travolta sexually assaults masseurs. Like a few completely heterosexual and NOT AWKWARD AT ALL kisses can change that. But Travolta is hoping that you’ll forget all about it. Travolta is hoping that you’re only thinking about Tom Cruise and Kristen Stewart. And what’s worse is that Travolta is winning… most people have moved on to other scandals and Travolta’s “massage problem” has definitely gone to the back burner. Thus, Travolta and his lawyers have asked that one of the civil cases be dismissed. Just one of them.

John Travolta has fired back at the cruise ship worker who claims Travolta sexually assaulted him in 2009 … filing docs yesterday claiming the worker is LYING and made the whole sordid story up.

As TMZ first reported, Fabian Zanzi claims that Travolta exposed himself during a neck massage aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise … and offered to pay him $12,000 to keep the incident quiet. Zanzi detailed his allegations back on video in June (see below).
In court docs filed yesterday by legal pitbull Marty Singer … Travolta admits to being on cruise … but denies all the allegations of misconduct against him.

Travolta also reiterates his point that Zanzi filed a report with Royal Caribbean over the alleged incident when it happened … but failed to mention any of the sexual details.

Travolta wants the lawsuit dismissed and for Zanzi to pay his attorney’s fees.

I remember Fabian Zanzi’s accusations – you can go here to read them. I referred to him as John Doe #3 – he was the third man to come out (within a few weeks) and claim that Travolta had acting inappropriately. Zanzi claimed the incident went down in 2009, and said, “He had something on his neck. I thought it was a fuzz. As I approached, he took off his white coat and was naked. He hugged me and asked me to do a massage.” So… Travolta is admitting that he was on that particular cruise, but that he never sexually assaulted Zanzi. And considering Zanzi is going to have a hard time proving it, there is a good chance that the civil case would be dropped. My guess is that Travolta and his team are trying to pay off some of these guys who have more believable stories, but I still have high hopes that at least one guy (perhaps Doe #2) will stick to his story, refuse a payoff and take this thing all the way to a public civil case.

    He looks like he’s had a face lift or something.

  5. tru tru says:

    yuck! that kiss is scary, turns my stomach–guess its worth it to Kelly.

  6. Birdie says:

    What a freaking loser. “Oh, I want everything dismissed”. Yeah, I want you to accept that you have no hair and remove the dead cat from your head. Hope the judge won’t grant his request and the victims stand by their claims. These are serious accusations and I feel like people don’t really take it seriously.. they say he sexually molested them. That’s not a stupid hit and run. Hope he will pay big time.

    That wiglet is giving me the creeps!
    Who glues on crap like that?

  8. princesslizabeth says:


    He isn’t doing himself any favors by using that hair color, either. Something a bit more natural is needed!

  9. serena says:

    He’s gross.

    Awww, kissy kissy *barfs* These two make me sick. The more I read of their lies around their son having autism, the more I can’t stand them. Kelly used to leave Jett to nannies and say “HANDLE IT” when he had a melt-down. After the child died, John admitted in an interview that he’d been autistic. Before he died, it was ” Kawasaki syndrome” from carpet fumes. Riiigghht. Scientology doesn’t acknowledge autism (along with many others). Liars, assholes, idiots, Scientologists. Tom Cruise’s unauthorized biography paints a VERY unflattering picture of Scientology, VERY.

    He looks like an ape.

  12. RHONYC says:

    god, i just think of him from his ‘WBK/SNF/Grease’ days & weep.
    wtf happened to him? damn. 😥

  13. the original bellaluna says:

    Why is he giving platypus face? So gross!

  14. TTT says:

    If John Travolta wants to be a “closeted gay” that is his choice. Part of being tolerant is learning you must tolerant of ALL choices, not just the ones you consider to be politically correct.

    • CAM says:

      The biggest problem here is that he’s acting out by sexually harassing people. If its true what he’s doing to these guys whom he hires, then yeah, its a problem.

  15. skuddles says:

    Why, because he can’t keep track of them all?? And is one less suit really going to make a difference now?? A perv is a perv is a perv JT, ain’t no secret anymore.

  16. erika says:

    God he is soooooo SCARY!!!

    Is nobody else frightened by that ‘hair’? HELLO!? it’s like, he took a black Sharpie marker and colored in his hair!

  17. eljeran says:

    I dont like people being mean about JT. I think he is a sweetie. I dont think he sexually assaulted anyone. I do think he is gay and had a few hook ups with some fags that are trying to cash in.
