John Travolta lawsuit thrown out
Los Angeles - John Travolta has been cleared of accusations he ruined an author's reputation.
Robert Randolph wrote You'll Never Spa In This Town Again
, in which he made claims the Pulp Fiction
actor enjoyed gay sexual relations in Los Angeles' City Spa in the 1990s.
He then claimed John and his lawyer Marty Singer had falsely accused him of having serious mental problems to try and make him out to be an unreliable source.
However, a judge has thrown out his lawsuit against John and Singer, ruling a letter in which they made the accusations was a legitimate part of the legal dispute and so they cannot be prosecuted for it, according to TMZ.Lawsuit is absurd
Both John and Marty have previously issued statements branding the lawsuit "ridiculous".
A representative for the Hairspray star said: "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.
"To evaluate the credibility of Robert Randolph and his ridiculous lawsuit one need look no further than his own statements published on his website stating that he sustained 'permanent brain damage' and had to 'retrain' his brain."
Marty echoed the claims, saying: "We intend to sue the attorneys for malicious prosecution after the court promptly dismisses this baseless lawsuit."
John - who is married to actress Kelly Preston - has been dogged by a number of claims of sexual misconduct
, some of which have since been retracted, from a number of male masseurs since the publication of You'll Never Spa In This Town Again.
