It looks like John Travolta will easily be able to avoid coughing up $2 million to the first masseuse that has accused him of sexual assault.
John Doe #1, as the anonymous man is being referred to, filed a lawsuit that claims the married actor tried to repeatedly solicit sex from him during a 10am massage at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 16th. Unfortunately for John Doe's case, Travolta was in New York that day and has provided pretty significant proof.
On top of a receipt from an NYC restaurant and pictures from that day, flight records show that Travolta jetted from LAX at 8:21pm on January 15 and landed in Westchester County, NY at 3:59am. Furthermore, he was actually staying at the Greenwich Hotel on the day that he supposedly touched his scrotum and peen in front of the massage specialist.
That's pret-ty solid proof from Travolta's camp, but his accuser doesn't seem to be backing down. In fact, he would prefer if the world stopped talking about the issue (good luck with that) because "too often these matters are decided by swaying public opinion."
While still remaining anonymous, the man has finally spoken out. He asks that nobody "form any opinion" about any parties involved in the lawsuits before they go to trial. In a statement he issued the press, John Doe #1 writes:
“Despite the circus that celebrity matters seem to spiral into, we should grant all parties involved a wait-and-see attitude, and wait for either the official decision of a judge and jury, or the possibility of a dignified discussion between people who are not pit bulls, or aces, or anything, but are actually officers of the court (lawyers) who have sworn an oath to protect the justice system from losing its blind lady of justice with scales and replacing her with the days of Salem Witch Hunts."
Now that's what we call a run-on sentence! LOL!
We hate to be the people who break it to this guy, but he's living in a fantasy world. When you file a lawsuit against a major Hollywood movie star and accuse him of sexual assault and battery, the world is GOING to talk about it. People are going to want to know the details of the case and they are going to form an opinion one way or the other.
Speaking of which, do U think that John has successfully vindicated himself from the first lawsuit's accusations or is there still a chance he's guilty?
