Los Angeles - John Travolta wants to launch a counter-suit against a man who accused him of sexual misconduct.

Travolta is accused of alleged sexual harassment by an anonymous masseur, who is seeking $2m in damages.

However, the 58-year-old Pulp Fiction actor's lawyer Marty Singer revealed he will take legal action - not only against the claimant, but also the claimant's lawyer - for malicious prosecution.

'Complete fiction'

He told The Hollywood Reporter: "There is a heightened standard for a lawyer suing a celebrity and knowing the media will pick it up. The lawyer can't just rely on the client. He needs to do an investigation and has an obligation to do due diligence."

Marty also said that he could prove Travolta was not present in Los Angeles on 16 January, the date of the alleged incident.

Travolta released a statement through his publicist on Monday saying that he was over 3 000km away on the opposite side of America at the time.

He added: "This lawsuit is a complete fiction and fabrication. None of the events claimed in the suit ever occurred."
