Travolta gay claims crop up again, this time, with added libel

by | 22nd, June 2012

GAY or not, John Travolta is being put through the media mangle at the moment while everyone speculates about his sexuality. All we need now is an invite from Oprah for Travolta to have a little cry and tell us how hard it all is, and we’re done.

Previous stories around this have featured large chefs flipping burgers, masseurs rejecting Travolta’s sexual advances, powerful Jews and helicopter pilots. It’s ticked many boxes. And now, the latest addition, is some libel! Robert Randolph, who wrote a book about his alleged gay encounters with John Travolta has filed a libel lawsuit against the actor and his attorney.

Randolph claimed that Travolta and his attorney Martin Singer spread false statements about his mental health in 2010 in a bid to dissuade the public from buying his planned book. His is seeking unspecified damages in the legal action filed in LA’s Superior Court.

Randolph’s book ‘You’ll Never Spa in This Town Again’ was published in February and three months later, two unidentified male masseurs filed sexual assault lawsuits against Travolta. The actor’s spokesman called the accusations “complete fiction.”

When will this all end?
