John Travolta is finally firing back at Fabian Zanzi, the one-time cruise ship worker who accused the Hollywood legend of sexually assaulting him in 2009.
Travolta filed legal documents yesterday claiming the employee is lying.
Fabian Zanzi claims Travolta exposed himself during a neck massage aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise, then offered to pay him $12,000 to keep it quiet.
Zanzi detailed his salacious allegations in a lawsuit back in June.
Travolta’s attorney, Marty Singer, responded to the claim, admitting John was on the cruise but denying all the allegations of misconduct againstMore >
Just two days after John Travolta’s first accuser filed papers to dismiss his sexual battery lawsuit against the actor, the second accuser has followed suit.
The second accuser, also a male masseur, just fired his lawyer and will reportedly file new papers in an effort to dismiss the lawsuit in the near future.
The second accuser had claimed Travolta assaulted him on January 28 at an Atlanta spa resort. Travolta allegedly grabbed the masseur’s penis, etc.
It’s the last remaining lawsuit against Travolta, as both the third accuser (Fabian Zanzi) and the fourth accuser who came forwardMore >
John Doe Number One, whose accusations of sexual assault against John Travolta made major headlines before his case fell apart and he dropped the lawsuit, apparently isn’t throwing in the legal towel just yet. He’s hired Gloria Allred, according to reports.
“I represent John Doe Number One,” Allred confirmed to People.
“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. Our client andMore >
Score one for John Travolta.
The first of three sexual battery accusers has moved to dismiss his own lawsuit against the movie legend. The anonymous masseur did not give a reason.
E! News has obtained the notice of dismissal, which was filed today in U.S. District Court. So the actor is officially in the clear … with this guy at least.
John Travolta’s accuser set off a firestorm last week, but drew criticism early on both for his extremely graphic lawsuit and for contradicting his story.
While the man claimed sexual assault at the hands of the actor which took place on January 16,More >
The masseur suing John Travolta for sexual battery in a Beverly Hills hotel is admitting a major hole in his shocking story – that the date he claimed the actor groped his crotch – January 16 of this year – is wrong.
John Doe #1 still maintains the attack happened, however.
Travolta’s lawyer has insisted from the beginning that he was in New York City during the alleged massage gone awry, proving it with flight records.
The anonymous accuser’s account of the incident remains the same, however, but in a significant development, he now says it took place earlier.
“It was a miscalculation,”More >
The lawyer for the two masseurs suing John Travolta for sexual assault claims others have come forward with similar stories and will join the lawsuit.
Okorie Okorocha, who reps John Travolta accuser (John Doe) #1 and #2, says he’s keeping their identities secret because they’re victims of sex crimes.
He also says he fears backlash against the men from the powerful actor.
Okorocha claims he tried settling the first sexual battery lawsuit involving John Doe #1 discretely, telling Travolta’s lawyers they could go through a private judge and keep everything completely confidential, only to beMore >
The man suing John Travolta for sexual battery is responding to the actor’s denials, saying he can in fact prove the salacious behavior took place.
Marty Singer, Travolta’s lawyer, says the lawsuit from the anonymous masseur is totally unfounded, as John wasn’t even in town at the time.
Despite his claim that Travolta was not in L.A. January 16, and that the suit is “complete fiction and fabrication,” John Doe tells a different story.
“I have proof to support the truth that I’m telling,” he said.
Much like his name, he won’t reveal specific details … yet.
Singer’s claim that John DoeMore >
