John Travolta vs. the masseurs update
This is all getting a little tiresome, but seeing as a new masseur has joined the fray while another will get a chance at private meditation, I would surely be amiss in my sacred duty to spread salaciousness and icky rumours not to mention it.
Us has this: "A fourth masseur has come forward with sexual misconduct allegations against John Travolta. STILL NOT AS MANY AS WE WERE PROMISED. HUNDREDS, THEY SAID. HUNDREDS. I'M VERY DISAPPOINTED Former Peninsula Hotel employee Michael Caputo tells the New York Daily News the actor, 58, was placed on the swanky hotel spa's blacklist for over three years because of "inappropriate behavior" around spa staff. "Travolta would always request a man for his massage, but after a while no one would take him," Caputo shares. "It got to the point where they couldn't find any men to take him, and they had to ban him." According to Caputo, male employees accused the star of "removing his towel, grinding against the massage table and lifting his butt in the air. These are signs to a massage therapist he was trying to see how much he could get away with REALLY. I THOUGHT THEY WERE SIGNS HE WAS TRYING TO SEE IF HE COULD FLY OUT THE DOOR, PICK UP A BURGER AND FLY IN AGAIN. THANKS FOR CLEARING THAT UP," the former masseur explains. "They went to management." Following a complaint to hotel officials, Caputo says Travolta was eventually removed from the blacklist. A rep for the Peninsula did not respond to the Daily News' requests for comment regarding Caputo's claims. Prior to Caputo's allegations, Travolta's team was already debunking the claims of three other masseurs - a former cruise ship employee, as well as massage therapists in Atlanta and California - who came forward earlier this week with similar tales about inappropriate encounters with the actor. Travolta's attorney, Marty Singer, tells the Daily News these latest accusations are nonsense, adding that his client has been back to the spa within the last six months. "If he was banned, do you think he'd ever go back? He's never been banned, I guarantee you . . . The hotel never told John he was banned, and John never acted improperly," Singer argued, adding that Caputo is nothing more than a "disgruntled employee" hoping for his fifteen minutes." QUICK AND COMPLETELY HYPOTHETICAL QUESTION: COULD SOME FRIEND OR WIFE OR SPIRITUAL ADVISOR PERHAPS SUGGEST TO A HYPOTHERICAL ACTOR - LET'S CALL HIM JOHNNY - THAT HE BUILD AND STAFF A SPA AT HOME? WOULD THAT NOT SEEM LIKE A FANTASTIC SOLUTION FOR A MILLIONAIRE WITH CERTAIN ALLEGED NEEDS?
And then Radar has this: The sexual assault and battery lawsuit that an Atlanta-based masseur filed against John Travolta will never go to trial because both sides have agreed the case should be heard by a private judge behind closed doors in mediation, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting. The unidentified male masseur, made the blockbuster claims against Travolta, several days after another anonymous man filed a similar lawsuit against the Grease star. According to the lawsuit, the second victim alleges that while working at an unspecified resort in Atlanta, Georgia on January 28, 2012, he did an in-room massage on Travolta, as the massage came to an end ... REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED FOR THE SAKE OF EVERYONE ... Travolta started masturbating [with] about 15 minutes left in the session, and Doe Plaintiff No.2, said he had to go," the docs state. Travolta has vehemently denied the allegations of both lawsuits. "Marty Singer, and Okorie Okorocha have spoken and both are working on the ground rules for the evidence and procedure about how the mediation will proceed, and that process could take 1-2 months," a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. "This is commonly done before formal mediation begins. Both sides will agree to keep all transcripts sealed, as well as all witness statements, depositions, etc. The lawsuit will be heard by a private judge, who will decide how much money if any the accuser will receive. All of the proceedings will be strictly confidential, but make no mistake, this will be a dog fight, that will take place out of the public forum. This is done for a plethora of reasons, mainly, this will allow the masseur's identity from being made public, and it would just be a media circus if it did go to trial. This will be the best way for the case to be heard with minimal disruption to John Travolta and the masseur's life. ALSO IT WILL BE SO MUCH EASIER TO DEAL WITH SHOULD TRAVOLTA SHOW UP WEARING NOTHING BUT A BATH ROBE. "The first man that filed a sexual assault lawsuit against Travolta was dropped, by Okorocha Friday. As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported the man admitted he was wrong about the date of the alleged attack.
