John Travolta Gay Rumors

And we never listened to “Greased Lightning” the same way again. John Travolta was slapped with a lawsuit in May alleging sexual assault and battery against an anonymous masseur, who claimed that the actor made a pass at him after hiring him for a massage. In what initially sounded like an awkward "SNL" skit, the suit alleged that Travolta took off his clothes, began rubbing the masseur’s leg, and touched his genitals. Travolta allegedly apologized after making the alleged advances, but continued to pressure the masseur to have sex with him and an actress who was also in the building, according to the suit. A second anonymous masseur came forward a day later, and a third suit was filed within a week. The third came from a Royal Caribbean cruise worker who also alleged that Travolta had taken off his robe and solicited him for sex. The first two suits were later dropped, but that wasn’t the end of the actor’s legal woes. He was sued again in June, this time for libel by a man who wrote a book about his alleged gay encounters with the actor. Robert Randolph alleged that Travolta was spreading false statements about his mental health in order to discredit him and discourage people from buying the book. The case was later dismissed by a judge.
