John Travolta may be off the hook for at least one of the sexual assault lawsuits filed against him by an anonymous male masseuse, but there are plenty more stepping forward.
The first lawsuit claims that the married actor made a VERY uncomfortable pass at him during a massage at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in El Lay on January 16. However, sources have uncovered a photo of Travolta in New York City on that specific day AND a $382 receipt from a meal at an NYC restaurant called Mr. Chow.
The restaurant has also verified the receipt, so that's pret-ty convincing evidence that condemns the first plaintiff's lawsuit.
High profile lawyer Marty Singer has called the claims "absurd and ridiculous." He accuses both men of lying and plans on countersuing for malicious prosecution. The lawyer filing the suits, Okorie Okorocha, on behalf of the masseurs isn't intimidated though.
In fact, he says there are MORE people stepping forward who have had similar experiences with the Grease star. The lawyer explained:
"By the time this case is over Marty Singer will have to accuse more than 100 men of lying because I have been contacted by people, mostly men, that have first hand information about similar behavior on John Travolta's part to that contained in the lawsuits I have already filed against him. I have witnesses and the potential for more accusers in virtually every state of the union who have called me. I'm currently in the process of investigating their claims and verifying the information before possible further action is taken."
And as for that countersuit? He says, "Bring it on," and continued:
"If Marty Singer thinks he can sue me on the validity of Mr. Travolta's denials, and if he wants to file the lawsuit now, I will give him a waiver allowing him to proceed with it at this stage of the case, even though under California law he has to wait until he wins the case, and that absolutely won't be happening. It will never happen, he won't win, so we might as well get it over with now. Bring it on."
This guy sounds confident that he's got a case! Like, REALLY confident! However, since Travolta's camp easily disproved the first accusation, we wonder how valid the rest of them are.
Do U think this is all B.S. or is this Hollywood heavyweight about to start handing out $2 million left and right?
