John Travolta faces new claims of sexual assault from a second masseur
Actor John Travolta faces new allegations of sexual assault after a second male masseur joined the $2 million legal action against him.
In amended court documents filed on Tuesday, the unidentified man claimed John Travolta, 58, tried to initiate sex at a hotel in Atlanta on 28 January.
The new accusation follows allegations that he sexually assaulted a masseur at the Beverly Hills Hotel on 16 January.
John Travolta’s lawyer called the new claim “just as ridiculous as the first one”.
“Our client will be fully vindicated in court on both of these absurd and fictional claims,” said attorney Martin Singer.
The second man, a resident of Georgia, was referred to in court documents as John Doe No. 2. He claimed that John Travolta rubbed his legs, touched his genitals and tried to initiate sex during a private appointment.
His claims echoed those of the first masseur, referred to as John Doe, who accused John Travolta of exposing himself and groping him.
Both legal actions were filed by Okorie Okorocha, a lawyer based in Pasadena just outside Los Angeles, and have been dismissed as “fabricated” by John Travolta’s legal representatives.
Best known for his roles in Saturday Night Fever and Pulp Fiction, John Travolta has been married to Kelly Preston since 1991.
