Actor John Travolta has been sued for assault, sexual battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress in U.S. District Court by an anonymous masseur, according to court papers obtained by EW. Referred to only as John Doe, the plaintiff alleges that Travolta hired him for a two-hour private massage in Los Angeles in mid-January and then made unwanted sexual advances, including touching his genitalia. He is seeking $2 million in damages.
When reached for comment, Travolta’s rep released this statement: “This lawsuit is a complete fiction and fabrication. None of the events claimed in the suit ever occurred …On the date when plaintiff claims John met him, John was not in California and it can be proved that he was on the East Coast.
