Travolta Sued for Sexual Battery

Talk about tabloid fodder. An anonymous masseur has sued John Travolta for assault and sexual battery, claiming that the actor made a pass at him after hiring him for a massage. The suit alleges that Travolta began rubbing the masseur's leg, touched his scrotum and the shaft of his penis after the actor took off his clothes. It also claims that Travolta apologized after the masseur turned down his advances, but continued to try and persuade him to have sex with him and a Hollywood starlet in the building at the time. Travolta's rep has released a statement saying the suit is "a complete fiction and fabrication." The anonymous plaintiff, who identifies himself as John Doe in the lawsuit, is seeking $2 million in punitive damages.
