The alleged victim, named as John Doe #1, has released a statement exclusively to RadarOnline, which claims that he was in a room at the Beverly Hills Hotel when the pre-arranged massage turned sexually inappropriate for him.
“I don’t think anyone should form any opinion about Mr. Travolta, his family, his council, myself, John Doe #2, and our counsel,” the statement reads.
“Instead, I would urge everyone to understand that guilt or innocence in our Justice System is decided by our court system. Too often these matters are decided by swaying public opinion through elements that would never be considered in an actual court case.”
By the way, yesterday TMZ published photographs and a restaurant receipt, which can serve as proof that the actor did stay in New York at the time the masseur allegedly was assaulted by him at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California.
However, the victim explained that: “For instance, a photograph, a restaurant receipt, testimony, and other things that may or may not constitute proof have strict guidelines that must be followed.”
He continued: “A fine example is the amazing number of guilty people that escape their crimes due to the mishandling of evidence. Is it disappointing, of course it is, but it is a price we must pay in order to have a justice system that runs in a constitutional manner.”
Well, it seems like the 58-year-old actor had a very bad week. On Monday, John Doe #1 filed a lawsuit alleging that Travolta not only tried to have sex with him, but also suggested a threesome with “a Hollywood starlet” and told him that he “got where he is now due to sexual favors he had performed when he was in his ‘Welcome Back, Kotter’ days,” The Huff Post writes.
Tuesday faced one more Travolta’s scandal, which rose one more ‘victim’, claiming that Travolta “would open his legs and spread his butt cheeks open and had a full erection and would maneuver in a way to try to force [the plaintiff] to touch his anus and around his anus,” according to RadarOnline.
Wonder, but alleged victims have something in common: they are represented by the same lawyer. Which is more, they both seek $2 million in punitive damages. Travolta’s reps denied the allegations in a statement to E! Online, calling them “complete fiction and fabrication.”
“This lawsuit is complete fiction and fabrication,” it reads. “None of the events claimed in the suit ever occurred. The plaintiff, who refuses to give their name, knows that the suit is a baseless lie…”
“On that date when plaintiff claims John met him, John was not in California and it can be proved that he was on the East Coast. Plaintiff’s attorney has filed this suit to try and get his 15 minutes of fame. John intends to get this case thrown out and then he will sue the attorney and Plaintiff for malicious prosecution.”
Travolta, who is married to actress Kelly Preston, has been dogged by rumors about his sexuality for years.
