WARNING: CONTAINS EXPLICIT CONTENT
The lawyer representing the male masseur who is suing John Travolta for sexual battery says his client is afraid of the actor but is determined to have his day in court, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As previously reported, Travolta is being sued by an unidentified male masseur for assault, sexual battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. According to the lawsuit, the masseur tried to carry out a deep tissue massage, but “Travolta, had removed his draping and was masturbating. Travolta’s penis was fully erect, and was roughly 8 inches in length, and his pubic hair was wirey and unkempt. Sweat was pouring down Travolta’s neck, and he asked Plaintiff again to say something nice to him.”
Okorie Okorcha, the lawyer repping the masseur tells RadarOnline.com exclusively: “My client is afraid of John Travolta. Mr. Travolta made very explicit threats against my client, which are contained in the lawsuit. Specifically, John Travolta told my client that Hollywood is controlled by homosexual Jewish men who expect favors in return for sexual activity. Let’s face it, John Travolta is an extremely powerful man, and my client absolutely felt threatened by Mr. Travolta. My client was sexually assaulted by Mr. Travolta and he needs to be held accountable for his actions.”
Travolta’s rep tells RadarOnline.com: “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. 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. 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.”
According to the documents, the massage began in a bungalow at The Beverly Hilton Hotel and “Travolta appeared to be semi-erect.” The lawsuit goes on to claim that a chef brought in hamburgers during the massage and Travolta “touched Plaintiff’s scrotum, and this time the Plaintiff told Travolta to please not touch him again.” The lawsuit states that the actor promised not to, but “Travolta quickly tried to rub the head of Plaintiff’s penis as he tried to pull away.”
Travolta “started to apologize for his behavior and tried to imply that they ‘must have gotten our signals crossed,’ and that he thought the Plaintiff wanted ‘the same thing he did,’” the documents state. “Plaintiff explained that he did not ever have sex with his clients and that expecting sexual situations when people are providing paid services was essentially prostitution. Travolta tried to act like it was a simple misunderstanding..Plaintiff told Travolta that a masseur lying on the table was unlawful and inappropriate. Travolta said, ‘come on dude, I’ll jerk you off!!!’”
The legal ace attorney goes on to tell RadarOnline.com: “My client is ready to go to trial in this case. I reached out to Mr. Travolta’s lawyers before filing the lawsuit, but nothing came of that. My client has never been in a situation like that ever before and he has been tremendously traumatized by the incident. My client just wants the truth to come out, period.”
Okorcha went on to explain that he files all sexual battery and sexual harassment lawsuits without identifying the Plaintiff, “to ensure privacy and some sort of anonymity, although in this case my client knows that his identity will be revealed eventually and he recognizes that.”
The documents state that Travolta said there was a Hollywood actress staying at the hotel that “wanted three way sex, and wanted to be double penetrated. Travolta said they could have that later, but first they needed to have sex together before calling her, so this way they would be in-sync with each other sexually. Travolta told Plaintiff that he had Hollywood looks but just needed to lose some weight and learn to kick some ass and then Plaintiff would be ready to make millions.”
After threatening to call the cops, the masseur alleges he was dropped off where Travolta had picked him up and that the actor called him “selfish” and a “loser.” Travolta gave the masseur $800, double what he was owed.
Travolta has been married to actress Kelly Preston since 1991. The couple’s oldest child, Jett, died in 2009. The couple have two other children, daughter, Ella Bleu, and their toddler son, Benjamin, born in 2010.
The masseur is seeking at least $2 million dollars in damages and wants a jury trial.
