John Travolta denies sexually assaulting massage therapists
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- John Travolta is denying claims that he sexually assaulted two massage therapists.
The actor is being sued. One of the plaintiffs, who is seeking $2 million, says Travolta responded to his ad last January.
He claims the actor inappropriately touched him and talked about sexual favors in Hollywood. Travolta hopes to have the cases thrown out and says he plans to sue for malicious prosecution.
"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,'" Travolta's lawyer, Martin Singer, said Tuesday in a statement. "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."
