Ever since, gay rumors, accusations, denials and new lawsuits have seemingly been popping out of the walls around John Travolta.
Is John Travolta gay, or is someone trying to make him look gay to mess with the actor's career?
Is the Hollywood superstar a sexual predator, or is Travolta being victimized by a predatory plot to rape his public image?
Are the multiple allegations against John Travolta without merit, or does the famed actor need to be caught, punished and rehabilitated for crimes?
It is perhaps worth it to go back to the very first Travolta accuser of 2012 for some hindsight of the original John Travolta lawsuit:
John Doe Number One filed a notice dismissing his lawsuit with the federal court after his gay sex accusations against John Travolta fell apart and his lawyer dropped him.
John Travolta's lawyer, Marty Singer, said the superstar actor was vindicated by the dismissal of the complaint.
Suddenly, Gloria Allred has taken on John Doe Number One as her new legal client.
"I represent John Doe Number One," said Allred. "Mr. Doe's lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice, which means that he is still legally entitled to file another 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"
The plaintiff had previously claimed that John Travolta fondled him down below, sexually propositioned him, inflicted emotional distress and traumatized him into a state of fear that continues to persist.
The supposedly damaged male claimant had filed legal action in federal court, seeking $2 million from John Travolta for general damages, punitive damages, attorney fees and court costs.
According to court papers previously filed by Okorie Okorcha, the former attorney for the plaintiff who is suing Gloria Allred:
- Massage appointment was booked online.
- Massage took place inside a hotel bungalow in Beverly Hills.
- Defendant stripped of all clothing and was passive for first hour without incident.
- Plaintiff performed a standard non-sexual deep tissue massage.
- A chef delivered hamburgers during the 2-hour appointment. (Did the chef see anything unusual?)
- Defendant removed his garment. (Wait, wasn't he already without clothing?)
- Defendant began stimulating himself. (Why didn't plaintiff just walk out?)
- Plaintiff described, in inches, defendant's fully-erect organ measurement. (Exactly how would he know this?)
- Defendant separately fondled 3 distinct sections of plaintiff's genitals. (How would this be possible if plaintiff was dressed?)
- Plaintiff pulled away after refusing to engage in prostitution (but did not leave the room).
- Plaintiff informed defendant that he never has sex with his clients. (Has he never had similar offers before?)
- Plaintiff told defendant that a masseur lying on the table was "unlawful." (Too much talk and not enough exit?)
- Defendant told plaintiff that Hollywood is controlled by gay Jews who trade in sex. (Out of character for Travolta)
- Defendant suggested that his acting career success was due to gay sex. (Extremely out of character for Travolta)
- Defendant offered to perform a sex act on plaintiff. (Cue to leave?)
- Defendant continued pressuring plaintiff for gay sex. (Cue to leave immediately?)
- Defendant suggested a 3-way tryst with a female hotel guest staying in another room.
- Plaintiff threatened to call the police but did not. (Why didn't he have defendant arrested on assault and battery charges?)
- Defendant made explicit threats against plaintiff. (Why didn't plaintiff call police?)
- Defendant called plaintiff "selfish" and a "loser." (Does this constitute emotional distress?)
- Defendant profusely apologized to plaintiff for his aggressive behavior.
- Plaintiff received 4 hours pay from defendant for only 2-hour massage.
- Plaintiff presently lives in fear of defendant. (In fear of what exactly?)
Based on the masseur's allegations, a reasonable person is to assume that John Travolta would trade his successful 35-year Hollywood career and long marriage for an antisemitic gay life of adultery involving criminal actions.
Many agree that, as initially presented, the accuser's allegations did not seem capable of convincing the public nor a California jury that John Travolta committed the acts claimed.
What new attorney Gloria Allred plans to do with John Doe Number One is still up in the air.
John Travolta Reaction to Allegations
John Travolta, 58, has been famously married to actress Kelly Preston for 21 years. Travolta, Preston and family are understandably furious at the accusations.
Kelly Preston is NOT divorcing her husband, John Travolta.
Travolta insists that he was not in California when the alleged assault and sexual battery occurred in Beverly Hills, and that he can prove it.
The superstar's legal team is headed by L.A. mega-lawyer Marty Singer, who was named the top entertainment attorney of the year by the esteemed Beverly Hills Bar Association.
Denise Wingate, the costume designer for Travolta's new movie, Killing Season, was in Travolta's New York suite at The Greenwich Hotel in New York when the masseur claims Travolta sexually violated him 3,000 miles away in Beverly Hills, California.
Wingate snapped pictures for nearly 4 hours during the session with Travolta, where four other people were also in the room. There are other witnesses in New York as well.
Additionally, John Travolta's flight plan shows that the actor could not have been in California to molest a masseur in Beverly Hills, and the accuser has now stated that he remembered the wrong date by mistake.

Exactly why Gloria Allred chose to take on an anticipated new lawsuit by John Doe Number One against John Travolta over an alleged gay sexual assault remains unclear.
