John Travolta received word on Tuesday that he was being sued by a second masseur for sexual battery. Like the first plaintiff, the second masseur is also unidentified and joined the $2 million suit claiming the “Grease” actor assaulted the two men in separate individual incidents when they were performing personal massages.
The second individual is a Georgia resident only referred to as John Doe No. 2 in papers obtained from the court. The second John Doe alleges that Travolta touched his genitals, rubbed his legs and tried to start sex with him at an appointment in a hotel room in Atlanta.
The latest allegations echo the ones from John Doe No. 1 who is from Texas and filed the initial lawsuit over the weekend. The second complaint, said Martin Singer the attorney for Travolta, is as absurd as the previous one. He said his client would be 100% vindicated by the court in both of the fictional claims.
Okorie Okorocha, a Pasadena, California based attorney is the plaintiff’s legal counsel and said he has a number of other masseurs who may join the lawsuit. He said he would file for all the victims that Mr. Travolta has hurt but evaded legal action.
He said the plaintiffs never contacted the police department because they felt the police would have a hard time believing them. Travolta, who is 58, first rose to fame in Welcome Back Kotter ad sitcom from the 1970s. Then he hit it on the big screen for Saturday Night Fever and Grease.
