John Travolta And His Male Pilot Had 6 Year Romance

John Travolta Doug Gotterba Pilot Sex Scandal

Uh-oh. Look who’s talking now!

According to the most recent National Enquirer, John Travolta spent the better part of the ‘80s making Mile High manlove with his pilot and "right-hand man" Doug Gotterba.

The publication tracked down Travolta’s secretary at the time and Joan Edwards spoke about her old boss’s sex life. She said:

“Of course I knew he was gay. It never bothered me… Doug is a wonderful guy and we are still good friends. He told me that John was gay and they had a sexual relationship."

Doug's ex-bf, Robert Britz sang mostly the same tune. He said:

“Doug made it clear that it was very lucrative for him to be what he called John's 'personal right hand man' and homosexual partner."

The article also suggests Travolta faked a relationship with a 16 year-old Brooke Shields just to muck up the media’s gaydar.

Perhaps only a small percentage of these accusations are true but, with the recent Gotti implosion and all the talk of out-of-court settlements, there are already very real career consequences from his tarnished public image.

Is there no hope of saving his rep at this point???

    "OH and the national Enquirer Never Lies! "- said no one…ever.

    What have we heard from the National Enquirer that has ever been true? Um…..oh wait….NOTHING!!! Seriously Perez? Thought this was supposed to be TRUE and CONFIRMED gossip, not rumors from the National Enquirer…sad =(

  3. 3

    He can save himself by coming out and not living a lie. His sexual preferences have not exactly been a well-kept secret.

  4. 4

    Remember what The National Enquirer said about John Edwards having a mistress? No one believed that, either.

    And it was TRUE!

    It's time John tell the truth, for the sake of his family especially!

  5. 5

    These are the consequences for living a lie. He wanted to a big box office star and had to hide who he was in order to get the level of fame he wanted. We all pay a price for our choices.

    gay>? maybe bisexual? to marry and have kids in this day and age up until this point doesnt make sense to me.

    If it isn't true = great. If it is true = great. Leave the man alone.

    Kind of makes Kelly Preston and that cult - Scientology look like chump change…… Is Kelly prego yet w/ her latest love child?
    Frankly, there was no way he could of come out at the beginning of his career. But he certainly could've after Pulp Fiction. What makes this sad is he could probably feed LA's homeless for a few months on what he's paid, and probably continues to pay to hide what makes him tick. Dick.

    Everyone knows he is gay. No body cares he is gay except the scientology people.

    I bet Travolta just wants to be out of the closet and free from the scientology crap. Preston won't have to be his beard anymore and she can be free too.

    I love your comment - "Is there no hope of saving his rep at this point???" lol, for being gay?

  11. be strong says – reply to this


    Maybe he is bi.

  12. DintheA says – reply to this


    Being gay is fine, not a big deal. But how would his wife not know? I mean come on. I only feel bad for his family IF they REALLY DID NOT KNOW. Otherwise gay straight and everything in-between is fine in my eyes. Lying though gets you in trouble.

  13. Nikki says – reply to this


    I think it's terrible for you Perez to even report this. If he's gay, that's great, but shouldn't he be able to choose when he comes out of the closet? Not being pushed out by gossip magazines and websites. You for one should be understanding.

  14. 14

    I don't understand why he doesn't just say he's gay. I feel bad for his wife and I hope she at least knows the truth.

  15. MT says – reply to this


    Re: Nikki – He's reporting what the NE said…the broke the story. Not Perez. John sealed his own fate when all this shit went to the court and lawyers. You can't have it both ways.

  16. lil ang says – reply to this


    coming out/mid life crisis

  17. 17

    Kelly better watch out for GON GON GON, GON GON-ORRHEA.

  18. yup says – reply to this


    Re: genarae – It is not a PREFERENCE…it is an orientation…..I think at this point John has done so much in secret that is now coming out in the news, it will not help gays in the least..because to some, it will just reinforce the negative stereotype that gay men are sleazy…John, just be proud of who you are…being gay is not a bad thing…hiding is causing problems….I sure hope his wife is getting some on the side too….

  19. yes says – reply to this


    Re: kissofDeath – There are many "out" successful actors and actresses today….I wish some would know you can be gay and lesbian and still have a fan base…the ignorant will never get it…who cares.

  20. 20

    I don't need the inquirer to confirm what most people in Hollywood know.. C'mon! He is gay! DUHHH and who cares? Where there is smoke there is fire!! This kind of accusations do not come from nowhere! Him, Cruise are just as gay as Ricky Martin and whats his name from Nsync! It's only a matter of time before enough people talk about it and becomes public knowleadge!

  21. yes man says – reply to this


    Re: Grouchy Marps – I doubt Kelly has touched him in years….I mean look at him…he is not that attractive, plus he likes guys…that cannot be attractive to her. I am sure she knows he is gay and perhaps she is bi too…They must have some kind of agreement…whatever works for them. ce la vie…..But, I do wish John would just be honest…he would live a happier life….Being Gay and Lesbian does not mean you have to be tortured…just live life dude…honestly.

  22. DALE says – reply to this


    if there's smoke, there is fire… i knew it… i've always had that feeling about him.

    Poor Brooke Shields. - Looks like she was Everybody's Beard in the 80s.

  24. Kim says – reply to this


    I think it is appalling that you as a gay man are 'outing' someone before they do it themselves! how dare you contribute to that kind of a low life stunt! people commit suicide over this kind of thing. you are meant to be an antibully but you are the worst kind. Shame on you:(

  25. A.J. says – reply to this


    Kim, You can't be serious…
    He's OUT !! What more do you need? … A video, pictures, A used condom sent to a Lab?
    Anyways, Hilton used to do that (out people) which I agree was wrong… But here, this dude couldn't get any further out of the closet if he was on the moon.
