John Travolta's Former Gay Lover Tells ALL!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayJohn TravoltaLove LineLGBT

The pilot who says he had an affair with John Travolta for six years in the 80s hasn't written his tell-all book yet, but the guy is telling his story to the tabloids!

Doug Gotterba says he met the Savages star in February 1981 during an interview for a pilot position and Travolta immediately began courting him.

Their romance began after the Hollywood star whisked Gotterba away to a Monterey, California resort where he was wined and dined. Once they got to their room, Travolta used his favorite pick-up line, as the pilot explained:

“As we walked from the restaurant back to the room, John suddenly said, ‘Hey, would you like a massage?’ I’d already prepared myself for something like that, so I said, ‘Sure, why not? I went back to his room, showered and came out wearing only a towel. John said, ‘Okay, like down here on the bed.’ He gave me a massage – and it turned into something else!"

Unlike the stories we've all heard from the various lawsuits filed against Travolta, this relationship was definitely consensual! Gotterba continued:

“John was gentle, but very passionate. The next day, he told me with a big smile on his face, ‘I really enjoyed last night.’ And I told him, ‘So did I!”

All was well and good for years until Travolta met and married his current wife, Kelly Preston. Gotterba says the last time he hung out with his famous lover was in 1992 and explains:

“They’d just gotten back from the Church of Scientology’s Celebrity Center in Hollywood when I arrived and John asked me to go with him for a walk on the beach. We were making small talk when suddenly, I blurted out, ‘So, John, tell me. Now that you’re married, do you still prefer men – or women?’ He looked me straight in the eye and said, ‘Well, Doug, I still prefer men!' I said, ‘okay.’ And that’s the last time we saw each other.”

At least it was fun while it lasted. Gotterba is saying that Travolta couldn't get enough sexy time and even enjoyed multiple male partners at once! Oh yeah, and he wanted to make a sex tape!

If they did, we hope he's got that locked away in a safe deposit box somewhere because the jig's up once that bad boy gets leaked.

    I wish we lived in a world where people could explore and live with their sexuality without fear or being outed or ostracized. There have been rumors about John for many years now. I wish he could stand proud for what he enjoys and feels without being ridiculed by the masses. This is not John's problem, it is a problem with our ever growing puritanical society.
    I hope John can live in peace - he has done a lot of good work both artistically and humanistically.
    Also note that he ended his relationship with this fellow when he got married - what a mench.

    Re: Ms. B Nice – After watching the speeches at the Republic Conference last night, you are so right about the 'ever growing puritanical society'.

    Who cares! Plus sounds like bs to me. "Would you like a massage?" Oh please, after these other allegations this guy just wants a piece of the action. If he's gay the only reason he hides it is because people are assholes, and in his day when he was young and still hot if he would have told he was gay he would never have had a job again. Why don't people leave him alone he seems like a nice person. Who give a crap what he does in his personal time.

    Doug Gotterba and Joan are not the only former employees of Travolta that can talk about his sexual preferences, remember his limo driver, read that here and read Gotterba's bio and tons of pics!! this keeps getting nastier, Poor Kelly and her children!

    Yeah right John is gay and I am the Queen of England…….NOT!!! Once and for all stop this stupid witch hunt, Mr. Travolta is not now and never has been gay……leave him alone, this rumor is older than dirt. Just another poor shmuck who wants his 15 minutes. Get a job to make money not lie about something to a gossip rag, have some self respect.

    He is absolutely gay - and has insatiable sexual desires that he has been unable to control (unlike another famous Scientologist, ahem). I heard a story where he made a sexual advance and exposed himself to an off-duty crew member on one of his movies. The guy was gay and rebuffed him - but the comment was that Travolta is EXTREMELY well-endowed. More power to John if he's gay, but I take issue with the fact that he lives this fake life with a wife and kids - and is so brash, distasteful and non-discriminating in his advances.

    Re: rosebud99 – I don't have a problem with what people do intimately. However, I could never be with a man who's had sex with another man. A man who's had sex with other men is gay. Not bisexual but gay!! Woman can be bi-sexual . But not men. I think all straight and gay men would agree.But if a dude claimed to be bi he would be 99% into men and 1% into women. Usually it's so the woman can give them a child.

    I feel sorry for MRs. Kelly Preston - John's wife & their children… If you can't stop being gay then for goodness sake COME OUT! But don't put your family thru the shame & embarrassment of being made a joke of & disrespected as a "front"… that would break my heart like nothing else if I was the woman in the scenario. :(

    Re: Ms. B Nice – That's probably why his marriage has lasted so long.John hasnt had the temptation to full around on Kelly with women. He's into men. How many stories have to come out in order for us to believe them? I remember back in the 80's when John was considered a heart throb. Their were pics in a gossip mag that showed him lounging at a gay bar with several gay men. Before Kelly John was linked with only two women. One woman was much older than John. She died of cancer.Marylu Henner was the other woman he "dated" for several years. Then Kelly came around who got became pregnant with their son. They married in Paris in 1992.

    How can people say 'it's his business' when so much of his public persona just doesn't add up? It's not as if he's NOT married. He's MARRIED, with children! How can it be RIGHT, that he portrays himself as a wholesome family man, when none of it is true? This pilot is clearly not trying to cash in - he obviously can back it up, as the English agent of John's was the one who spoke about the story first A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO! He's used to paying people off - only for his own benefit. I think it's time to realise that the other 'not famous' guys who claim that he assaulted them, are clearly not making it up!

    Now I get why guys act the way they do towards lesbians. This story really turns me on. I think two men connecting is very hot. Re: Ms. B Nice – You're right. He should be careful too though. Make sure the guy knows and agrees to his wants. That way, no one would press charges. His wife knows. She's doing her thing too lol.

    john and tom are at the celebrity centre circle-jerk as we speak!

    Why does't he just come out and make life easier on himself. Kelly is awfully sweet to continue to support him on his misadventures.
