John Travolta is gearing up to face off against his former employee - and alleged male lover - Doug Gotterba in court, according to reports.
Claiming that Gotterba violated a confidentiality agreement, Travolta is looking to quash the alleged intimate details that Doug has spilled.
Travolta filed suit against Doug Gotterba when the pilot, who formerly worked for the actor, and says he had an affair with him in the '70s.
Rumors that John Travolta is gay are as old as time, but rarely have they involved a real, named person who says he boned the movie star.
“John was gentle, passionate sexual being,” Doug says. “The next day, he told me, with a big smile on his face, ‘I really enjoyed last night.'"
"And I told him, ‘So did I.'”
The two reportedly carried with each other over a six-year period, during which “I’d stay in the room next to John in hotels,” said Gotterba.
“Sometimes he’d bring women along as his beards. But he would ask me to join him in his suite and we’d spend the nights together."
"It was our little secret.”
After Gotterba’s revelations to various tabloids, Travolta sued his ex-employee, who left his position at Travolta’s aircraft company in 1987.
Travolta cited a signed confidentiality agreement; Gotterba presented a copy that had no confidentiality claim and filed a counter suit.
“Mr. Gotterba has not created a triable matter of fact simply by disagreeing with the defendant,” says Travolta’s attorney Martin Singer.
Judge Donna Geck disagrees, at least for now. She has ruled that the case will not be dismissed, as requested by Travolta's camp.
A court date has been set for August 7, at which point this classic case of he-said, he-said, he-signed, he-didn't-sign will continue.
