John Travolta was 'a great kisser' and ‘very experienced’ in bed during passionate hotel romp, claims masseur

More news from the Daily News (quoting the National Enquirer):

ANOTHER FORMER massage therapist has come forward — this one with compliments — claiming John Travolta has a magical set of lips.

“He’s a great kisser,” Luis Gonzalez, now living overseas, told the National Enquirer. “I know because I had sex with him, and he loved it.”

Gonzalez told the Enquirer he found the “Saturday Night Fever” star “very experienced” in bed. He told the newspaper he spent an afternoon having passionate sex with Travolta at the posh Ritz-Carlton hotel in Laguna Niguel, Calif., in 1997.

The former masseur claimed the randy rendezvous started shortly after he set up his massage table in the actor’s room.

Travolta reportedly stripped down and said it was too warm for a top sheet, Gonzalez said.

“I gladly let him lay on the table naked . . . and within five minutes, Travolta spread his legs and I could see an erection,” he told the Enquirer. “He moved around and started to breathe heavily. He’d say, ‘Oh, yeah, that feels so good! A little higher, please!’ ”

Gonzalez said Travolta made it clear he wanted more than a regular massage, so the couple hopped into the sack.

“We got into the bed that was right next to the massage table and had a really good time,” he claimed.

“Travolta may not identify himself as a gay man, but it doesn’t dismiss the fact that he likes sex with men,” Gonzalez said.

Travolta’s lawyer, Marty Singer, dismissed the new accusations.

“When it comes to claims about my client in supermarket tabloids, consider the source,” Singer said in a statement to the Daily News. “This spate of recklessly published tabloid stories is just part of a malicious tabloid agenda to boost lagging sales by running outrageous, defamatory stories about my client sourced by people seeking notoriety or a payday.”

Meanwhile, John Doe No. 1, a former masseur who accused Travolta of groping him at the Beverly Hills Hotel in January, has hired Gloria Allred as his new legal muscle.

That accuser appears to be in damage-control mode after withdrawing his graphic claims from federal court.

“I represent John Doe No. 1,” Allred said in a statement obtained by The News.

“Mr. Doe’s lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice, which means that he is still legally entitled to file a lawsuit against John Travolta if he chooses.”

“We are in the process of conferring with him regarding the next steps which he may wish to take,” Allred said.

Flight records, photographs and an eyewitness later placed the “Pulp Fiction” star almost 3,000 miles away in New York working on a movie at the time of the alleged attack. Faced with the star’s alibi, the man claimed he simply screwed up the exact date.

“My client is completely vindicated by Doe No. 1 dropping his claims and dismissing his lawsuit,” Singer said in a statement.

The Oscar-nominated actor remains the subject of a related $2 million lawsuit brought by an Atlanta masseur identified as Doe No. 2.

Singer has denounced the claims of both Does and also blasted a similar allegation by a former Royal Caribbean staffer who said Travolta propositioned him with a naked hug and the offer of $12,000 cash during a 2009 cruise.

The News revealed Saturday that New York masseur Michael Caputo, a former masseur at Manhattan’s posh Peninsula Hotel, claims Travolta was blacklisted from its rooftop spa for inappropriate conduct.

John Travolta hitting on straight guys was always talked about. Back in the 90s a friend who worked for a soap opera magazine told me. Her magazine was published by primemedia which published gossip tabs and they have a lot of stuff they don't use. I was all - wtf is he hitting on straight guys, there's plenty of gay guys who would fuck John Travolta (he was still hot then). She was like - he's John Travolta, he can fuck anybody, and he keeps raising the stakes. Fuck any woman - done. Fuck any guy, done. What's the next coup - seducing a straight guy. My POV was if he can seduce a straight guy the guy isn't straight, but apparently this isn't uncommon behavior with big movie stars and I guess John Travolta doesn't ask "So you're really REALLY straight, right? Until me you never thought about fucking a guy? Always thought it was just women for you? And I changed your mind?"

I think Travolta and people like him - whatever they get other people to do that makes them feel powerful - can get off without doing due diligence on their partner. ("Damn! Turns out he messed around with guys in high school! Now it's not as fun!")

From the NY Post:

The Hollywood horndog shocked “Grease” co-star Jeff Conaway when he attempted to give him oral sex while he was sleeping, a bombshell report claims.

Travolta’s steamy Early Morning Fever session happened in the 1990s at Conaway’s home, Conaway’s former fiancée, Vikki Lizzi, told the National Enquirer.

The late Conaway allegedly said he was so dismayed to wake up and find his friend giving him oral sex that it ended his long relationship with Travolta.

Lizzi told the tabloid that Conaway made the claim in a suicide note he left after a failed bid to kill himself in 2006.

Conaway appeared on Broadway in “Grease” for a couple of years with Travolta — who starred as Danny Zuko — before they both were cast in the 1978 film classic.

Conaway played Travolta’s sidekick Kenickie in the film. He died last May from complications of pneumonia at age 60.

Lizzi also claimed that Conaway told her that Travolta, 58, and his wife, Kelly Preston, were locked in a sham marriage.

“Jeff told me that John and Kelly’s marriage was an arrangement,” she told Star magazine. “Jeff said that Kelly knows that John is gay, and that’s why she’s OK with it.”

Yes, R44, but it's not enough to say someone has a large pubic bush - that is not a distinguishing mark, and Travolta can shave it off if asked to show his genitals at trial.

This may seem like something only people on DL discuss, but in real court cases of sexual harassment, the accused is often asked whether he is cut or uncut to determine whether it corresponds to the accusations of the Plaintiff. You can even find discussions of circumcision status in published court cases.

So my question is, do any of these accusers identify whether Travolta is cut or uncut?

I don't know, R46, but a big part of why the sexual abuse accusations against Jackson failed is because one of the boys claimed Jackson was circumcised. Jackson showed his penis to the police and proved he was uncut, thus destroying the credibility of the accuser.

As rumors swirl about her scandal-rocked marriage, Kelly Preston is standing by her man – at least online.

The gorgeous wife of accused groper John Travolta has posted a sentimental Mother’s Day video on her website, gushing that it was a gift from “Johnny.”

“My husband, Johnny, made his directorial debut creating a special Mother's Day video for me. I was so moved and love it so much that I wanted to share it with all of you,” Preston, 49, wrote in a message that linked to the 4-minute montage of dozens of private family snapshots.

Set to a soundtrack of Barbara Streisand’s “That Face,” the video starts with a headshot of Travolta, 58, and the words “From me to you.”

It fades from one smiling family photo to the next, showing the couple happily embracing, pecking each other on the cheek and doting on their three children.

THE ex-fiancée of Grease star Jeff Conaway has alleged that John Travolta tried to perform oral sex on her former partner while he was sleeping. Vikki Lizzi has claimed the incident happened at Conway's home in the 90's and left him so upset it ended the pair's long-term friendship. She told The National Enquirer Conaway - who played Danny's best friend Kenickie - left the details in a suicide note after a failed bid to kill himself in 2006. The claims come after two of the five masseurs who accused the star of sexual misconduct dropped their lawsuits. Lizzi also alleged in an interview with Star magazine that Conaway told her Travolta, 58, and his wife, Kelly Preston, were locked in a sham marriage. "Jeff told me that John and Kelly’s marriage was an arrangement," Lizzi told the mag. "Jeff said that Kelly knows that John is gay, and that’s why she’s OK with it." The magazine claimed another source confirmed that Preston signed a contract with Travolta when they were wed.

However Travolta's lawyer, Marty Singer, has dismissed the allegations as "outlandish", claiming Lizzi is a paid source.

"Vikki Lizzi sold more stories than we can count to AMI publications both before and after Jeff Conaway died," Singer told Gossip Cop. "Why didn't this 'notarised letter' story ever come up before?"

"Why did this story surface only now, after the AMI tabloids sparked a frenzy with its bogus Doe number one story, and a year after Mr Conaway's death when he is no longer around to refute it?”

DUI Attorney Okorie Okorocha had no idea how his world would be turned upside overnight by representing two John Does who are accusing John Travolta of sexual battery.

He’s now lost both clients and he’s PO’d Travolta’s pit bull attorney Marty Singer and even the John Does’ new attorney, Gloria Allred.

Okorie, who often says one thing to one media outlet and denies it to another, was caught on videotape accusing Allred of “unethical” behavior by illegally “seducing” his clients.

Allred fired off her response to RumorFix:

“It has been reported in the press that Mr. Okorie Okorocha claims that I solicited John Doe 1 and John Doe 2 as clients. Mr. Okorocha’s representations are false, outrageous and defamatory. John Doe 1 and John Doe 2 contacted my offices and neither I nor anyone in my law firm solicited either of these two clients. Both clients first called me and asked me to represent them. I have been practicing law for the past 37 years and I have not and do not solicit clients. Clients come to me. John Doe 1 and John Doe 2 called me without my having any contact with them whatsoever prior to their phone calls. I demand an immediate retraction by Mr. Okorocha of his false statements. I value my reputation and will defend it vigorously both publicly and in court.”

This scandal is about more than being gay, if the rumors are true than Travolta would be an incredibly depraved individual who gets off on assaulting and humiliating other men up to the point that it could be considered rape. If he simply had boyfriends or used escorts I might have some sympathy for his situation, but this behavior is the behavior of a sexual predator and a pervert.

I bet Scientology filled his head with all sorts of "you are the master of your domain" nonsense which allowed Revolta to rationalize his behavior.

These masseurs did not want their private lives and profession to be in the public eye but they have to... to stop Travolta from doing this to some other honest people who are only trying to earn a living. Travolta is not a tortured closet case, to harass every masseur that you encounter is disgusting. He should just come out and live a happy gay life.

From the DL SUMMER STOCK MEMORIES thread a few years ago:

-Star Fucking-

I’ve hinted at it, but now it’s time to get down to some details. You know you’ve been waiting for this part!

In the mid 70s, in spite of the zeitgeist of free love and gay rights, Cape Cod was still a very conservative place. The staff and apprentices who arrived at the beginning of the Falmouth Playhouse summer season would start a brief, chaotic journey, moving from innocence to curiosity to indulgence to decadence. This all happened in a bubble, isolated from realities of the world surrounding them. We were horny kids. Some of us were horny adults. We talked, we compared notes, we kept score on each other, we envied the hotter kids, and we all pretended like this was the norm. What we didn’t do very much was screw each other. That was too much like incest.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Sara & Peter were a young married couple, living in Woods Hole. They apprenticed at the playhouse to advance their acting careers. They planned to move to New York in the fall and make a go at it. They were ambitious, fresh, and hot. Peter was a Nordic blonde with still a hint of baby fat. Sara was from a wealthy family in California, with west coast charm and big tits. They arrived ready to conquer the world. We all tried to figure out their story. Were they an open couple? Was Peter bisexual (or even gay)? Was Sara as innocent as she pretended? We soon learned the truth: they were star fuckers. Their MO was simple: with each week, they would scope out the potential stars, and then plan a strategy that would end up with one (or both) of them in bed with the victim(s). They planned to leverage these liaisons into contacts for future work. They were very successful in the execution of the seduction part, but no so successful in the follow-up. I caught them in one of their plots, and was forced to tell them to back off.

John T. was an incredibly hot commodity in the mid-seventies. His popular character role on a hit TV show had propelled him into a quick stardom, and made him the idol of teenage girls. So, when he arrived at Falmouth, my job was to keep him safe, secure, and hidden from the screaming fans. This was difficult. Even in the summer, Falmouth was a small town, and the locals all knew what was going on. We rented a small, secluded cottage with a pool for Mr. T, and hoped that would be enough. I did errands for him, drove him around, took him to press interviews, and even helped him with the reading of scripts (he was auditioning for some films). Although he was a year or two older than me, he seemed really naïve, and a not the brightest bulb on the marquis. But he was endearing, and I liked him.

I arrived one day at Mr. T’s cottage and found an interesting scene: John was lying on the living room floor, with Sara and Peter giving him a back rub. They were all in swimming attire, and from the look of it, I had caught them in the middle of something more involved. I was really shocked, and asked Sara what they were doing there. She replied that they had come to welcome John to the community. They had brought a gift for Mr. T, and wanted to let him know that he could feel safe with the Falmouth Playhouse family. I demanded to know how they found out where he lived, since we had kept that secret. They said that the owner of the cottage (a neighbor in Woods Hole) had given them the information. I told them that this was really inappropriate and asked them to leave. Mr. T said nothing, but I could tell that he did not like being caught. I found out later that they did return to the cottage and spent the night there. This whole incident moved Sara & Peter to the top of the summer star fucker list.

NPH and Ricky Martin don't have gay shame. Travolta and Cooper obviously have some serious damage and neither of them can cope with being an out and proud gay man.

Further, being "out" doesn't suddenly bring happiness, r107. Do you think an out man who is homeless is happy just because he's out? Do you think an out lesbian who just lost her job is happy just because she's out?

I like this masseur who said he loved the encounter. it sounds more real to me than the ones who say "OMG he came onto me.I mean I am a masseur,no one ever does these things to me.No one ever tries to come onto me ... I need 2 million to get over the trauma .."yeah right.

Really find it hard to think that these guys are like this is pay dirt lets get him.

I also have to say I would do John in a heartbeat :)

Don't get me wrong I believe when someone is molested or raped theO full weight of the law needs to apply but somehow I just think in these cases it is all about the money

Travolta Sex Scandal: Kelly's Private Hell

Created 05/21/2012 - 11:01am As allegations stream in that John Travolta has aggressively sought sex from masseurs, Kelly Preston, his wife of 21 years is devastated.

"Kelly's whole world is crashing down. She's going through a private hell — and, worst of all, Kelly is left wondering when the men will stop coming out of the woodwork. It's like a nightmare she can't wake up from," a source tells Star.

When the flood of accusations against John erupted, Kelly broke down in her Florida home. "Kelly was suddenly besieged by the reports of John's secret sex life. She couldn't escape the constant phone calls and texts from friends and family asking if she was OK. Kelly felt like she had nowhere to turn."

When Kelly's 12-year-old daughter, Ella, asked her what was going on, she couldn't hide her pain.

"Kelly had to leave the room — she couldn't take it," claims the insider. "When she was alone, she fell to the floor in a flood of tears. Suddenly, Kelly feels like she's been living a lie for two decades, and it's like a knife to the heart."

Kelly has been laying low since the scandal broke. She appeared on Lifetime's The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet, which was taped before the allegations came to light, and declared about her and John's marriage: "Our kids are the center of our universe." She also admitted to getting sober for the sake of her family. "It's different in that I'm so much wiser," Kelly explained. "I know myself so much more now."

The private state of her relationship, however, is another story. "The gay allegations are tearing John and Kelly's marriage apart," says an insider. "Kelly is torn because some of her friends are urging her to pack up and leave John, while others are suggesting she stand by her man. She's in terrible pain. She can't believe this is what her life has come to."

"It's definitely crazy that she could stand by him through all of this," a family source tells Star. Yet another family member, Kelly's mom, Linda Carlson, seemed to be sticking to the same line that Kelly and John have been publicly pushing for years: "Please don't believe the trash out there. It's such trash. Absolute rubbish," Linda tells Star. "They couldn't be happier. They're over the moon." Even if the allegations are untrue, given their similarity and the weight of decades of similar accusations, it's hard to believe that either of them could be happy right now.

WASHINGTON, United States of America - Actress Kelly Preston finally breaks her silence on the molestation accusations thrown her husband's way by several men, mostly masseurs.

The actress, John Travolta's wife for 20 years, says she is not just going to sit back and listen to the false accusations against her husband. Instead, she will fight and try to clear her husband's name.

In a 6-page spread on People magazine, Preston calls the allegations "absurd" and admits how stressed and angry she has been over the accusations.

She adds that she is worried about how their 12-year-old daughter, Ella, might get affected by the rumors.

Travolta and Preston lost their 16-year-old son, Jett, in 2009, after he suffered from a seizure. Jett lived with autism.

The coupled moved on by deciding to have another child, Benjamin, in 2010.

Preston says that if they can go through the death of a child, they can go through anything.

Are you certain that wasn't planned due to the dim bulb's involvement in the cult? Could that be the reason they took the boy out of the country where there wouldn't be a medical examiner closely checking the death? Was their son ever provided with help or medication since the cult doesn't approve?

The guy who Travolta was kissing on the plane steps was the guy, Jeff Kathrein who found Travolta's child when he died. Maybe Jeff was a little too distracted taking care of John instead of his son.

The rumor was also that JT stopped giving his son his anti seizure medicine as scientology didn't believe in it. It's hard to feel bad for him if he allowed his scientology beliefs to influence his medical decisions regarding his son.

It is very obvious that Kelly has known all about John being gay since the beginning of their relationship and has aided and abetted him in his subterfuge. She was paid well and got to be the Hollywood grande dame she always wanted to be. She's only upset now because she and John have been exposed as lying hypocrites.

2.This actress, wife, and mother is pushing hard to maintain her fake marriage. She hasn’t spoken to her own mother in years. However, after some recent unfavorable publicity, she called up some relatives and asked them to provide a positive comment to one of the tabloids in support of her family.

They all said “No.” They just weren’t willing to lie for her.

Desperate, the actor called her own mother, to whom she hadn’t spoken in years.

Grandma initially said “No.” Mom offered up a wad of cash. Grandma said “Not enough. I want something else, too.”

Turns out that Grandma wants another grandchild and access to all the grandchildren (up until now, her bad relationship with her daughter precluded her from seeing the grandkids). Mom agreed, mainly because she is desperate to to keep up the charade of a happy family, and having pics of the Grands and the Grandkids together would actually make for some good photo ops.

No, we don’t know how the actress’ husband feels about all this. He’s the biggest liar of all, so he can’t exactly take a moral stand here. Frankly, we don’t know whether the actress will even tell him about all this. Yes, she’s sneaky that way. (Blind Gossip)

R136 of course I believe he is gay. He even cruised an acquaintance of mine. But being gay and having a straight marriage doesn't make you a bad person. It makes you cowardly but the man is an Italian from the catholic suburbs of NJ pushing 60. It was a different time.

And sometimes men who are sexually attracted to men end up married to women they love platonically and with kids they adore, particular men of that age. And sometimes idiots turn to religion when they have a sick kid and are in denial.

I'm not saying it is a good thing but it's something that can happens to good and nice people. John and Kelly may be morons, but good hearted morons.

John Travolta handling scandal over groping allegations properly, say damage control experts  The 'Grease' star is taking a page from politicians and letting his opponents self-destruct

John Travolta's marketability and role in upcoming 'Savages' likely won't be affected by the allegations.

Breeze is the word.

Two prominent crisis management gurus say John Travolta is weathering the storm of his groping allegations well — and that the recent flurry of scandalous headlines shouldn't dampen his box-office bankability.

"John and his team handled this situation quickly, wisely and unified. There will be no career repercussions," veteran celebrity publicist Howard Bragman, now an executive at Reputation.com, told the Daily News.

Travolta, 58, got hit by a tabloid tsunami earlier this month when two masseurs claimed in a joint federal lawsuit that the “Grease” and “Pulp Fiction” star fondled their private parts and masturbated in their presence during separate massages on opposite coasts in January.

The first anonymous masseur said in his May 4 filing that Travolta groped him repeatedly during a private massage at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Jan. 16.

Identified as John Doe No. 1, he withdrew his claim last Tuesday after flight records, photos and an eyewitness placed the actor almost 3,000 miles away in New York at the time of the alleged assault.

The second masseur joined the lawsuit May 8 but dismissed his claim without comment Thursday. Both men are now working with noted civil rights lawyer Gloria Allred.

Crisis expert Mark Fabiani, whose celebrity clients include Lance Armstrong and Madonna, told The News, “There's an old adage in politics that applies just as well to this situation: If your opponent is in the process of destroying himself, you should stand aside and let it happen."

Fabiani said the now-defunct federal court filings and allegations from other men who purportedly sold their stories shouldn't hurt Travolta’s upcoming movies, including Oliver Stone's much anticipated “Savages,” which co-stars Blake Lively, Salma Hayek, Uma Thurman and Benecio Del Toro.

"Here, the accusers' cases seem to have been self-immolating almost from the get-go, and the credibility of the entire bunch has been called into serious question without Mr. Travolta having to say or do much of anything," Fabiani said.

"It's hard to imagine that such sketchy allegations will impact movie-going behavior much at all," he said.

Allred released statements saying she's conferring with her new clients about possible follow-up action. She said federal court was the wrong venue for the action filed by original attorney Okorie Okorocha.

The Daily News revealed the name of the second accuser Saturday, identifying him as Atlanta-area resident John Truesdale, a burly personal trainer, former football player, certified black belt, onetime Army medic and married dad.

Truesdale declined to say why he pulled the plug on his federal lawsuit but posed for photos for The News.

The article upthread on Kelly being all surprised by John's extra carricular activities is a load of crap. There wasn't a person alive or dead, even before this scandal, who thought their marriage was real, including Kelly no doubt. I remember my sister pointing it out years ago, she said: "Preston and Travolta only ever speak about their marriage in movie cliches, there's no sincerity". So if Kelly is upset it's only because she thinks their sham marriage has been exposed......someone should tell them everyone knew already.
