New evidence in Travolta assault case

2012-05-10 08:33
Los Angeles - John Travolta was in New York the day he is accused of sexually assaulting a male masseur in Los Angeles.

A receipt from a meal the Pulp Fiction actor ate at Mr Chow restaurant in New York on 16 January 2012 - the same day he is alleged to have sexually harassed an anonymous masseur in a Beverly Hills hotel - has been obtained by gossip website TMZ, along with a photograph of the actor in the city.

On Tuesday, a second man also filed a lawsuit claiming the actor tried to grab his penis during a massage session on 28 January in Atlanta, Georgia but John's attorney Marty Singer has denied both claims.

'Over 100 men'

However, Okorie Okorocha, the lawyer representing both alleged victims - who are each seeking $2m in damages - claims there are over 100 other men prepared to come forward with similar stories about the Hairspray star.

He told "By the time this case is over Marty Singer will have to accuse more than 100 men of lying because I have been contacted by people, mostly men, that have first hand information about similar behavior on John Travolta's part to that contained in the lawsuits I have already filed against him.

"I have witnesses and the potential for more accusers in virtually every state of the union who have called me. I'm currently in the process of investigating their claims and verifying the information before possible further action is taken."

'Bring it on'

In response to Mr Singer who said he will take legal action - not only against the claimant, but also the claimant's lawyer - for malicious prosecution, Okorocha said: "If Marty Singer thinks he can sue me on the validity of Mr Travolta's denials, and if he wants to file the lawsuit now, I will give him a waiver allowing him to proceed with it at this stage of the case, even though under California law he has to wait until he wins the case, and that absolutely won't be happening.

"It will never happen, he won't win, so we might as well get it over with now. Bring it on."

John - a devout Scientologist - has been married to Kelly Preston since 1991. Their oldest child Jett died in 2009 at the age of 17 and they have two other children, Ella Blue, 11, and 23-month-old Benjamin.

    To try and jump on the gravy train provided by a stupid liar is not the best idea - at least look for someone who can back up their lies with solid fabricated evidence. I hope John Travolta (Singer) exposes their lies and counter-sue for defamation.
