John Travolta, long the feature of the gay rumor mill, has been slapped with a $2 million lawsuit by a Los Angeles masseur who claimed Travolta offered to touch his junk during a massage session.
According to the lawsuit and reported in TMZ, Travolta hired the masseur from an online ad and scheduled an appointment for $200 an hour. The masseur did not know it was Travolta when the appointment was booked, but followed instructions and met up with a black Lexus SUV, which Travolta was driving and drove to the Beverly Hills Hotel and Travolta’s rented bungalow.
The suit claims Travolta stripped naked, appearing semi-erect. The masseur says he told Travolta to lay down on the table and the first hour went without incident. Then, according to legal docs, Travolta began rubbing the masseur’s leg, touched his scrotum and the shaft of his penis.
The masseur claims he told Travolta he did not have sex with his clients, but Travolta was undeterred, offering to do a “reverse massage,” adding, “Come on dude, I’ll jerk you off!”
The suit claims Travolta told the masseur he got to where he from “sexual favors he had performed when he was in his ‘Welcome Back Kotter’ days,” adding, “Hollywood is controlled by homosexual Jewish men who expect favors in return for sexual activity.”
John Travolta, a married Scientologist, rose to fame in the 70’s TV show ‘Welcome Back Kotter’ and later starred in such movies as ‘Saturday Night Fever,’ ‘Grease,’ and ‘Pulp Fiction.’
