“John was gentle, but very passionate,” the 62-year-old claims. “The next day, he told me, with a big smile on his face, ‘I really enjoyed last night.’ And I told him, ‘So did I.’”
The two quietly became a gay couple, with Gotterba acting as the star’s pilot as a cover.
“I’d stay in the room next to John in luxury hotels,” he says. “Sometimes he’d bring women along as beards. But he would ask me to join him in his suite and we’d spend the nights together. It was our little secret.”
After six years together, Gotterba says he couldn’t keep up with the actor’s extreme sex drive, and soon ended the relationship.
“John was oversexed, and I knew that he had many other lovers on the side. Some of them I’d hear about, others he told me about himself,” he claims.
“John demanded that I come to his house at all hours of the day and night [for sex],” the pilot explains.
“I feel sorry for Kelly. She’s a lovely person,” Gotterba insists. “She’s in the middle of all this, and it’s unfair to her.”
Gotterba claims he ran into Travola the year after his blowout wedding.
“We were making small talk when I blurted out, ‘So John, tell me. Now that you’re married, do you still prefer men — or women?’ He looked me straight in the eye and said, ‘Well Doug, I still prefer men!’” he recalls. “That’s the last time we saw each other.”
