John Travolta's Attorney Responds To Second 'Absurd' Sexual Harassment Lawsuit
John Travolta's lawyer, Marty Singer, has fired back at a pair of "absurd and ridiculous" sexual harassment legal claims against Hollywood star brought on by two anonymous masseurs.
A $2 million lawsuit filed last Friday by an anonymous male claims that Travolta propositioned him for sex and touched his genitalia; and now a second suit has been filed against the star with new claims of sexual misconduct.
The second accuser, also suing for $2 million, filed a similar suit against Travolta Tuesday morning, and the victim claims that he has evidence and witnesses to support his case.
The second John Doe claims that the 58-year-old Pulp Fiction star inappropriately touched him and was masturbating during a January 28, 2012 appointment at a resort in Atlanta, Georgia.
"This second 'anonymous' claim is just as absurd and ridiculous as the first one," Singer told TMZ.com via a statement.
"The attorney who filed the lawsuit on behalf of his second anonymous client... was notified that his first client's claims were totally false and fabricated," the statement continues, "Since our client was not in LA when anonymous 'Doe #1' claims he interacted with John Travolta.
"That fact is easily provable since John Travolta was on the east coast working on a movie on the date that anonymous 'Doe #1' claims he interacted with our client. After we were able to establish that anonymous 'Doe #1's' claims were totally absurd, the same attorney has now filed a claim on behalf of another plaintiff, whom he identified as 'Doe #2'...
"Before the attorney for the two anonymous plaintiffs filed the claim on behalf of the second person... he checked media reports that my client was in Atlanta working on a movie. However, the claim by Doe #2 is just as fabricated as the claim by Doe #1. Our client will be fully vindicated in court on both of these absurd and fictional claims."
Singer is confident the case will be thrown out of court, after which he vows that Travolta plans to sue both the attorney and alleged victims for "malicious prosecution".
