John Travolta is being sued by a masseur who claims the star touched his penis and tried to initiate sexual activity during a session at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

The massage therapist, who originally made the allegations in March in the National Enquirer, has filed a lawsuit in which he says Travolta responded to an online ad and drove the masseur to Travolta’s bungalow at the hotel.

According to the lawsuit, the massage was interrupted when Travolta allegedly rubbed the masseur’s leg and genitals before masturbating and requesting sexual favors.

The masseur, who is seeking $2 million plus punitive damages, says he repeatedly declined Travolta’s advances and was eventually sent home.

Travolta’s camp is strongly denying the charges, saying Travolta was not even in California on the date in question.

In a statement to Gossip Cop, reps for Travolta declare, “This lawsuit is a 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. It is for that reason that the plaintiff hasn’t been identified with a name even though it is required to do so.”

The statement continues, “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.”

Travolta’s camp claims, “Plaintiff’s attorney has filed this suit to try and get his 15 minutes of fame,” adding, “John intends to get this case thrown out and then he will sue the attorney and Plaintiff for malicious prosecution.”
