John Travolta’s Camp Slams Second Masseur’s Sexual Harassment Allegations

A second masseur is accusing John Travolta of unwanted sexual advances — and the Hollywood star’s camp is slamming the latest allegations as forcefully as the first round.

On Monday, news broke that an unidentified male massage therapist was suing Travolta for $2 million, claiming the actor had sexually harassed him at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Travolta’s lawyers blasted the plaintiff and said the star was not even in California on the day in question.

On Tuesday, a second accuser anonymously filed a sexual battery lawsuit against Travolta, using the same attorney as the first masseur.

The new allegations — in the amended complaint — claim Travolta tried to initiate sexual contact during a massage in his 15th-floor room at an unnamed hotel in Atlanta in January.

While the specifics vary slightly from the alleged Beverly Hills incident, “John Doe #2″ describes in similarly graphic detail how Travolta supposedly masturbated and made sexual overtures to the masseur.

Travolta’s lawyer, Marty Singer, hammers the latest charges in a just-released statement blasting both accusers and their attorney.

The statement reads, “This second ‘anonymous’ claim is just as absurd and ridiculous as the first one.”

It continues, “The attorney who filed the lawsuit on behalf of his second anonymous client, who does not want to disclose his name although he is required to do so, was notified that his first client’s claims were totally false and fabricated, since our client was not in LA when anonymous “Doe #1” claims he interacted with John Travolta.”

Singer adds, “That fact is easily provable since John Travolta was on the east coast working on a movie on the date that anonymous ‘Doe #1′ claims he interacted with our client.  After we were able to establish that anonymous ‘Doe #1’s’ claims were totally absurd, the same attorney has now filed a claim on behalf of another plaintiff, whom he identified as ‘Doe #2.’  Significantly, although the same attorney made the fabricated claim for Doe #1, there was never any claim made by anonymous Doe #2 before he filed his specious lawsuit.”

“Before the attorney for the two anonymous plaintiffs filed the claim on behalf of the second person who refuses to disclose his identity although required to do so, it is obvious that he checked media reports that my client was in Atlanta working on a movie,” continues the statement, concluding, “However, the claim by Doe #2 is just as fabricated as the claim by Doe #1.  Our client will be fully vindicated in court on both of these absurd and fictional claims.”
