John Travolta is being sued by author Robert Randolph, who accuses the movie legend of numerous gay trysts and consequently claims that Travolta spread lies about Randolph's mental health in order to diminish his credibility.
Robert claims he personally saw John engage in gay sex at various bathhouses.
The book, entitled You'll Never Spa in This Town Again, details Travolta's alleged sexual exploits with other men, including Randolph himself.
In his suit, Randolph claims that as he was releasing his book, Travolta and his powerful attorney Marty Singer unleashed a P.R. attack against him.
They claimed, Randolph says, that he had mental issues and had been institutionalized, all as a calculated attack to paint him as an unreliable source.
Randolph claims the plan worked and that retailers were deterred from selling his book. He is suing both Travolta and Singer for unspecified damages.
Another alleged Travolta gay lover, Doug Gotterba, is also said to be writing a book. Re: Randolph, a rep for Travolta has issued a statement saying:"The lawsuit filed by Robert Randolph is absurd. The suit is based on a privileged communication, and it will promptly be thrown out by the court."
The statement continues, "To evaluate the credibility of Robert Randolph and his ridiculous lawsuit one need look no further than his own statements on his website stating that he sustained 'permanent brain damage' and had to 'retrain' his brain."
"Mr. Travolta will aggressively defend himself against this lawsuit and expects to be fully vindicated when this meritless case is dismissed."
Singer also said in a statement: "This is a ridiculous lawsuit. It is based on a letter which is completely privileged under the law. We intend to sue the attorneys for malicious prosecution after the court promptly dismisses this baseless lawsuit.”
Maybe so, but this is like the 500th story in which someone claims John Travolta is gay. We don't care either way if he is, but it's interesting.
