Will John Travolta Finally Be Forced Out of the Closet?

Morning confession:  I don’t find John Travolta sexy* and I don’t want to have sexual relations with him.  And, with two lawsuits coming out of the closet this week from two male masseurs, it appears that there are other men that feel the same way.  Kelly, he’s all yours.  (*Okay, in this picture from the 1983 movie, “Staying Alive”, the follow-up to 1977’s “Saturday Night Fever”, Travolta was hot!  And, as an 18-year-old, I did find him sexy then!)

Travolta faces allegations of sexual battery and harassment stemming from two separate massage sessions.

On Monday, John Doe Plaintiff No.1 filed his lawsuit in a Los Angeles federal court.

He claims that Travolta, “shamelessly stripped down naked” and was “semi-erect” before the session started.  He goes on to say that the actor started rubbing the plaintiff’s and after being asked to stop, Travolta allegedly touched the masseur’s “scrotum” while giggling “like a mischievous child.”

In the second lawsuit filed Tuesday morning, John Doe Plaintiff No. 2 claims that he had “substantial documentation and numerous witnesses regarding the substance of Travolta’s actions.”  This interaction apparently occurred at an Atlanta resort on January 28, 2012.

Both plaintiffs, who are being represented by the same legal team, are asking for $2 million each in punitive damages.

The first lawsuit filed claims that the sexual come-on happened at the Beverly Hills Hotel on January 16, 2012.  The biggest shocker is that Travolta supposedly told the masseur that he “got where he is now due to sexual favors he had performed when he was in his ‘Welcome Back, Kotter” days because “Hollywood is controlled by homosexual Jewish men” who trade roles for sexual favors!

After the first lawsuit was filed, Travolta’s handlers fired back with this statement, “This lawsuit is complete fiction and fabrication.  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.”

When the second accusation came out, Travolta’s people called it “absurd and fictional” and “just as fabricated” as the first claims on Monday.

All I will say about the accusations is that I find the second one a little fishy that it surfaces just one day after the first lawsuit was filed and the alleged events were in January, months ago!

If Travolta is guilty, then the court can do whatever it wants if it finds the advances unwanted and that the lawsuits weren’t filed just for a big payoff.

However, on the other hand, if Travolta is “outed” as gay (or bisexual), that is something that he and his wife of  21 years, Kelly Preston, have to deal with.  If  the actor is gay or bisexual, you can’t tell me that Preston doesn’t already know that.  They have children together and accusations and rumors of Travolta being gay have hounded him for much of his career.

In 1990, one year before Travolta married Preston, the “National Enquirer” ran a story that Travolta followed a man into the shower room at a L.A. health club in 1982 and that they had a two-year relationship.  However, the paper eventually retracted the story.

But, that wasn’t the end of it.  “Yahoo! News” ran a story that Travolta was banned from a Los Angeles country club and a major hotel chain in the early ’90s for allegedly hitting on men in shower rooms.  And, then in 2006, the “National Enquirer” ran a story and this picture of Travolta hugging and kissing one of his families’ nannies, Jeff Kathrein, on the mouth.

And, some people close to Travolta, have even spoken out about their friend.  Two years ago, actress Carrie Fisher, said this about him to “The Advocate”:  “I mean, my feeling about John has always been that we know and we don’t care. Look, I’m sorry that he’s uncomfortable with it, and that’s all I can say. It only draws more attention to it when you make that kind of legal fuss. Just leave it be.”

The bottom line is that I love John Travolta as an actor.  His performance in “Swordfish” is creepy and stunning.  There are many movies that I want to go back and watch again and I still haven’t seen Travolta taking over Divine’s role of Edna Turnblad yet in “Hairspray”.

If he’s gay or bisexual and has been living this public lie all these years, I’m saddened for him that it has taken multi-million dollar lawsuits to out him.  If that’s okay with his wife, then I hope they lead a happy life and don’t try to hide anymore.  I just want people to be happy and not have to hide in the closet.  It will save him his sanity and millions!

I guess these lawsuits are just another “Twist of Fate” in Travolta’s life.  That’s also the title of this #5 song from 1984, from his movie, “Two of a Kind” with friend, Olivia Newton-John in 1983.

    I certainly don’t want anyone forced out of the closet, but a world that put them into it is sadder still. People need to be who they really are…I would love to see John come out and Kelly say she was fine with it. That would be a wonderful day!


  2. Darla,

    Closets should only be for clothes and shoes. 🙂

    The world is definitely the reason for the closet. As for John, I don’t know one way or the other. If she is gay or bi, I’m sure Kelly already knows and they have still have a life. It’s their life. Let them be happy, but be open about it and we wouldn’t have to wonder about it.

    You have a wonderful day, too!
