(LOS ANGELES) — John Travolta has been accused in a lawsuit of assault and sexual battery for allegedly attempting to have sex with a masseur. The $2 million lawsuit was brought by a masseur identified only as John Doe.
The complaint alleges that Travolta touched his private parts in front of the masseur after removing his pants. The lawsuit says he subsequently apologized, but then allegedly floated the idea of having sex with the masseur, as well as the two of them having sex with a “Hollywood starlet in the building that wanted to have three-way sex and to be double penetrated.”
Travolta, who is currently married to actress Kelly Preston, also allegedly stated that he enhanced his career by performing sexual favors during the time he starred on the TV series Welcome Back, Kotter.
Travolta’s camp has released a statement in response to the lawsuit, calling it “complete fiction and fabrication.”
The statement contends that Travolta was not in the same state as the masseur on the day in question. It concludes, “John intends to get this case thrown out and then he will sue the attorney and plaintiff for malicious prosecution.”
