nice moobs Johnny!
This is pretty much a no-brainer. The very fact this kook even tried to sue over the Singer letter pretty much says what needs to be said about the whole lawsuit. He's lucky if Travolta and Singer don't file an anti-SLAPP motion against this bogus lawsuit.
So he's not gay??
Yes, in court in the bahamas.
actually, wasn't it first revealed to the amba lamps driver?
or it was on the police report?
May have been, but I know he testified to it in court. KP probably siezed up when she heard him say it out loud.
John Travolta Is Gay, Kevin Nash Claims
Wrestler and actor Kevin Nash believes John Travolta is gay.
Nash makes the claim in an upcoming You Shoot DVD available at KayfabeCommentaries.com.
In a preview clip of the 155-minute special, Nash is asked whether Travolta hit on him during the 2004 filming of The Punisher. In the film, Travolta starred as the villain, while Nash played one of his henchmen.
When asked whether Travolta hit on him on the film's set, Nash answered: “All I'll say is this. I told my buddy from Pittsburgh when I got off the set, this was in 2003. I said, 'There's no way that dude's not gay.'”
Nash explained that Travolta would inappropriately wrap his arm around Nash's waist during photo opps.
“That's a little creepy,” Nash said.
He also described an incident in which Travolta gently caressed his naked shoulders in a makeup trailer.
Sooooo, has anyone seen John around lately? What about his beard?
I don't know what's holding him to the cult now, him being gay (or rather bisexual I'd guess) is all over the net. Unless David Miscavige have some more dirt on him, he should have nothing to loose by leaving.
excepting his sphincter... and it's 2013, so no one cares, so long as they don't have to watch
Travolta is bisexual with preference for men.
Cruise is bisexual with preference for women.
He may have bought into the whole keeping the family together is better for the kids bit. The death of Jett stood to either bring them undone, or draw them closer together as a family.
Well, when he finally tells, he'll be the last one to do so.
How does that "preference" thing work?
Flip a coin... heads - hair pie, tails - balls across the nose?
John Travolta Civil Case to Be Heard in Santa Barbara County
By Giana Magnoli, Noozhawk Staff Writer
The civil case between actor John Travolta and his former pilot — and alleged gay lover — will be heard in Santa Barbara County Superior Court, despite Travolta’s attempts to move the hearings to Los Angeles.
Douglas Gotterba worked as a pilot for Travolta — and corporations Alto Inc. and Constellation Productions Inc. — from 1981 to 1987, according to the complaint filed last November.
He signed a termination agreement in March 1987 while living in Santa Barbara County, which has since become the topic of much debate between himself and Travolta.
When reports came out last summer that Gotterba and Travolta had engaged in a relationship, Travolta’s attorneys insisted that the agreement included a confidentiality agreement, according to the complaint filed by Gotterba’s attorneys from Sanger, Swysen & Dunkle.
The complaint states that Gotterba did not initiate the publicity about the relationship, and Travolta’s attorneys from Laverly & Singer threatened legal action for alleged violations of the “purported confidentiality agreement.”
Gotterba says otherwise, and is suing in the face of Travolta’s threats to sue. Gotterba is asking a judge to declare the March 17, 1987, agreement — without a confidentiality agreement — as valid.
With Judge Donna Geck’s ruling this week, the case will be heard in its entirety in Santa Barbara County, not Los Angeles County. Travolta and his attorneys had argued to move the case since the actor and many witnesses reside in Los Angeles.
Geck insisted that the case be heard here, since Gotterba lived in Santa Barbara at the time the agreement was signed.
“The contract at issue was entered into and was to be performed in Santa Barbara County. Therefore, Santa Barbara County is a proper place for trial,” she wrote in her tentative ruling, which she upheld in court Wednesday.
She also ruled that Laverly & Singer must pay $2,200 to Sanger, Swysen & Dunkle to pay for the time spent fighting the motion for a change of venue.
Gotterba has given multiple interviews to tabloids and other media, and claims that he was Travolta’s gay lover for six years in the 1980s.
According to the Huffington Post, one of Travolta’s former assistants was the one to first tell the media about their relationship.
Travolta has been married to actress Kelly Preston since 1991, according to the Internet Movie Database.

TRAVOLTA GETS GUY-FLIRTY WITH BEVHILLS BARTENDER - The National Enquirer
By Mike Walker
TRAVOLTA TAKES A CRUISE!
You’d think JOHN TRAVOLTA would’ve learned his lesson after endless headlines alleging homosexual hanky-panky – but here’s an eyewitness account of the married movie star’s shameless shenanigans, direct from a trusted source.
Reports My BevHills SpyWitness: “John was shopping in a swanky Wilshire Boulevard store and stopped for a drink at their bar. Instantly, the star locked his gaze on a very handsome, blue-eyed, mid-20-ish bartender. Wherever the bartender moved, John’s eyes followed. It was very blatant. And every time the bartender glanced at John, his eyes were transfixed. It was obvious John was infatuated, and he kept trying to make small talk with the younger man.”
But the chit-chat ended fast when John overtly came on to the studly guy – who made it crystal clear he was NOT interested.
Only then did John finish his drink and dance off… solo!
Wilshire Blvd? Is that where the Celeb Center or other COS offices are?
"The civil case between actor John Travolta and his former pilot — and alleged gay lover — will be heard in Santa Barbara County Superior Court, despite Travolta’s attempts to move the hearings to Los Angeles."
Where the judges have been fixed and the jurors more likely influenced in Travolta's favour.
This explains why Cruise is closer to Davey that John.
It all makes sense nao.
more streets than that!
Judge Denies John Travolta's Unusual Arguments for Arbitration in Cruise-Ship Case - Hollywood Reporter
The ruling means the suit -- in which a ship attendant claims Travolta exposed himself and "forcefully embraced" the staffer following a neck message -- won't be litigated in secret.
On Friday, a California federal judge rejected Travolta's arguments in a 31-page ruling.
Anytime anybody buys a ticket -- whether it's for a concert, a ballgame or a cruise ship -- the purchaser agrees to certain things that are usually printed on the ticket. These stipulations are typically written by lawyers for the protection of the seller.
In this instance, Travolta flipped the usual script, attempting to gain advantage from the "Cruise Tour Ticket Contract" by having it deemed to be an agreement to send any dispute between a passenger and a cruise employee into arbitration.
The advantages of arbitration are speed, more control over proceedings and, of course, secrecy.
Unfortunately for Travolta, the judge isn't buying the arbitration arguments made by Travolta's attorney Marty Singer.
"This argument misses the mark," Judge Stephen Wilson writes in his ruling. "The pertinent inquiry is not whether Plaintiff's dispute falls within the Cruise Contract's arbitration provision (it might), but rather whether Plaintiff may be compelled to arbitrate despite being a non-signatory."
In other words, the contract was between Caribbean and Travolta, and the judge adds there is no evidence that Caribbean was authorized to bind Zanzi to the Cruise Tour Ticket Contract.

Oh, how fun! The cult's 2nd celebrity is going to be completely EXPOSED (hehehehe) for all to see. Can't wait! Hope that attendent takes him to the cleaners.
I have NO sympathy left for celebrities that are still drinking the cult's kool-aid. The time has passed where they could claim ignorance - it's clear that if they are still in, then they condone the crimes perpetrated by the cult.
John Travolta -- No Arbitration in Cruise Ship Massage Lawsuit - TMZ
A federal judge cleared the decks for John Travolta's legal battle with a cruise ship employee -- who claims the star exposed himself -- to play out in open court.
On Friday the judge shut down an argument from Travolta's attorneys that his ticket for the 2009 Royal Caribbean cruise liner included an agreement to settle all disputes between a passenger and the company in arbitration.
As TMZ first reported ... cruise ship steward Fabian Zanzi sued Travolta last June -- claiming the actor exposed his penis in his stateroom and forcibly embraced Zanzi after asking him for a neck massage.
In Friday's ruling, the judge basically said there's no evidence Zanzi is bound by the arbitration agreement between Travolta and Royal Caribbean.
The upshot is this could be headed for trial unless a settlement is reached -- which is common in cases where one side wants to avoid a public trial. So, the judge blocking arbitration also effectively drives up the price on a potential settlement ... though we don't know that's happening in this particular case.
Travolta's attorney has called Zanzi's suit a "ludicrous" attempt to grab "15 minutes of fame" -- and believes Travolta will be "completely vindicated in court."

John Travolta Gay Lawsuit Can Go To Trial, Judge Rules | Radar Online
By Radar Staff
In a legal setback for John Travolta, a Federal judge has ruled a sailor can take the Grease star to court, as part of a lawsuit claiming the actor sexually assaulted him on a cruise ship, providing the two sides don’t reach an out-of-court settlement, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
As we previously reported, Chilean-born Fabian Zanzi is suing Travolta, 58, for assault, battery, and infliction of emotional distress. He claims the star – who’s long been dogged by gay rumors – accosted him while he was working on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship in 2009, and the actor was a guest on the boat. Zanzi, a former employee of the cruise line, was in charge of VIP guests when the alleged incident took place. Zanzi told South American news website ABC.es that Travolta said, “He had something on his neck. I thought it was a fuzz. As I approached, he took off his white coat and was naked. He hugged me and asked me to do a massage.” Zanzi alleges that Travolta offered $12,000 to have sex with him, but he says he refused.
Travolta has adamantly denied the allegations.
In one of the first legal moves in this case, Travolta’s legal camp attempted to settle the matter by forcing it to arbitration – and thereby keeping it out of open court – by pointing to the fine print of his ticket for the cruise.
At issue, anytime anyone buys a ticket – whether it’s for a cruise ship, concert, or sporting game – the purchaser agrees to a list of things that are usually printed on the back of the ticket.
In Travolta’s case, his legal team argued that the “Cruise Tour Ticket Contract” stipulates that any dispute between a passenger and a cruise line employee go to arbitration.
The advantages of arbitration are speed, more control over proceedings and, perhaps most importantly in the case of a celebrity – secrecy.
Good try – but on Friday, California federal judge Stephen Wilson rejected Travolta’s arguments in a 31-page ruling, saying, “This argument misses the mark.”
Travolta’s attorney attempted other arguments to force the matter into arbitration, but the judge also denied them. His legal team has previously filed documents asking for Zanzi’s claim to be dismissed, and that he be forced to pay for legal fees.
Travolta has been married to actress Kelly Preston since 1991. The couple’s oldest child, Jett, died in 2009. The couple have two other children, daughter, Ella Bleu, and their toddler son, Benjamin, born in 2010.

Hm. Now they're probably just arguing over price.
I like this sentence from the Hollywood reporter:
So, Travolta's "propensities" to grab any good looking guy by the tail whether gay or not is common knowledge in cruise ship circles? If so, I guess someone will spill the beans sooner or later, and whatever is left of Travolta's closet will be well and truly gone. If that happends, he will cease to have any value to the cult internally.
How long was Zanzi working on the ship? Maybe they knew and sent him in as a hazing ritual on "the new guy"?
A liquored-up OT VII? That's not out-ethics, not to mention invalidative of the Tech?
LATEST! TRAVOLTA "GAY" CRUISE LAWSUIT DROPPED! - The National Enquirer
Published on: February 5, 2013
By NATIONAL ENQUIRER staff
UPDATE: 1:30 PM EDT: The former cruise ship staffer FABIAN ZANZI who claimed John Travolta assaulted him with a naked, "gay" hug has dropped his lawsuit against the actor.
The surprise reversal came just three days after a federal judge denied Travolta's request to force the matter into private arbitration — that would've led to a VERY public trial. Lawyers for Zanzi and Travolta signed paperwork dismissing the action Monday, according to court records. The voluntary action includes a clause that prevents Zanzi from refiling the case, the paperwork states.
The plaintiff, Fabian Zanzi, not only filed the lawsuit for assault and battery but for infliction of criminal distress in June 2102.
In the allegations, Zanzi, said he gave Travolta a neck massage while at seas on the cruise ship. Then, the suit alleged, Travolta disrobed, exposed himself and then "forcefully embraced" him.
The Hollywood superstar has denied the allegations, and his attorney Marty Singer threatened to sue the plaintiff for malicious prosecution, The Hollywood Reporter said.
But, in attempt at legal maneuvering, Team Travolta tried to compel arbitration by pointing to the small print on his cruise ticket.
On Friday, a California federal judge rejected Travolta's arguments in a 31-page ruling saying that anytime anybody buys a ticket -- whether it's for a concert, a ballgame or a cruise ship -- the purchaser agrees to certain things that are usually printed on the ticket.
Naturally, THR noted, the stipulations are written by lawyers for the protection of the seller much like the warning labels on anything and everything.
Travolta attempted to flipped the as defendant in the lawsuit by saying the "Cruise Tour Ticket Contract” was an agreement to send any dispute between a passenger and a cruise employee into arbitration.
Of course, abribtraon is usually done behind closed doors, and often rends a speedy verdict.
Unfortunately for Travolta, the judge isn't buying the arbitration gambit made by Travolta's legal pitbull.
In the ruling, Judge Stephen Wilson wrote, "This argument misses the mark."
In other words, the contract was between Caribbean and Travolta, and the judge adds there is no evidence that Caribbean was authorized to legally bind Zanzi, an employee, to the Cruise Tour Ticket Contract.
Meanwhile as Zanzi, the most vocal in a long line of accusers, challenges Travolta in open court over an alleged neck massage gone south, Zanzi is also in the middle of arbitration against Royal Caribbean, saying he was falsely imprisoned by his employer.
Zanzi claims that after he reported the Travolta incident to his cruise ship superiors in June 2009, Zanzi alleges in the legal filing he was ordered to stay in a "segregated room" for five days until Travolta departed the vessel.
The judge ruled that the two cases were separate -- ruling against another attempt by Team Travolta to arbitrate his case.
"There is no evidence that Defendant's assault and Royal Caribbean's subsequent response were interdependent or concerted,” Judge Wilson ruled.
Not surprised, just disappointed, I wonder how much that cost him.
That's depends on what Zanzi's price was. Everyone has a price.
