John Travolta Was Accused Of Sexual Battery In A Police Report From 2000

In what will come as a shock to maybe your grandma with glaucoma who hasn’t picked up a tabloid since the fall of the Berlin Wall and never saw Hairspray, it appears John Travolta isn’t always faithful to Kelly Preston and instead tried to squeeze up on a male massage therapist in Palm Springs back in 2000.

Accusations from male massage therapists claiming that John is creepy on the table are about as common as basic bitches like me buying a Massage Envy Groupon. However, Radar landed a police report on one instance that John’s now-deceased “fixerOlivia Pope Jonathan Krane seemed to back up in his old diaries. The unnamed accuser details in the police report how John exposed himself and jabbered away about all sorts of gay fantasies that would make L. Ron Hubbard blush. It went down at the La Quinta Hotel in Palm Springs (unrelated to the budget brand found around most airports) back in 2000 when John asked for a massage after midnight.

John got a body scrub treatment and allegedly told the massage therapist, “he was very attractive and that he had gotten him ‘excited.’” He then told the massage therapist to join him in the steam room so he wouldn’t be alone. Beginning to sound like a terrible plot point in Queer As Folk, John then dropped his towel and gave the massage therapist a massage and “began rubbing [the masseur’s] bare buttocks as well as in the groove between.” The massage therapist was creeped out and went to grab his equipment from John’s room, and while he was packing shit up, John kept making nasty comments. The report alleges:

“Travolta asked him if he had ‘ever had his a**hole licked buy another man,’ ‘what would he do it he ever had a sexual encounter with another man,’ and if so ‘tell him what he would do, so he (Travolta) could have something to fantasize about.'”

Considering this took place in 2000, it’s kind of weird to think John wasn’t getting enough of a gay fix by singing numbers from Hello, Dolly with Hugh Jackman between takes of Swordfish (how I envision filming went) and had to talk anal play with a total stranger. Usually, the Church of Scientology would take a John Travolta gay accusation as just “shit that happens on a day ending in -y,” but Jonathan’s old diaries detail how he told John to flee the hotel after the masseuse left:

“[I] persuaded the hotel it was in their best interest to get their employee to drop the criminal charges, and any civil claims, and to persuade the police not to investigate because it was just a misunderstanding.”

The fact that the last few weeks have shown we’re more likely to chase a sexual predator out of town than just do nothing and the fact that Scientology could see its tax-exempt status stripped, John better start looking for top dollar for his toupee and airplanes at the local pawn shop. That’s the only way he’ll be able to pay his legal fees if his massage accuser dam breaks!



  1. I need eye bleach…never thought he was cute…he gave me weird vibes in Welcome Back, Kotter..there are movies of his..just like willy non parent smith..I will never watch again….fuck them and their space ship…

  2. and would have been happy…how ever if he is a pedo…secrets…

  3. Wig Chronicles, lol I loves it!

    No really, I’m very familiar with MK’s write-ups about Lacefront’s pervy antics. And MK has always been very thorough at reading and shading JT. And I think that’s why I’m so puzzled by CJ “breaking the silence” in this short-form “exposé”. It doesn’t really fit with the longstanding voice of this site.

  4. Natalie Wood 🙁

  5. I’m on this site because I’ve been on this site for many, many years. I read the story just like everyone else did… expecting that it was an all-new scandal, only to find that it was someone reminding us of what happened years ago with seemingly no impetus for doing so, beyond wanting to join in with a juicy story.

  6. It’s not really letting people know if the whole thing was widely reported years ago over several months.
    It’s dredging up a story as being the timely focus for a thinkpiece. I don’t see anything in the post pointing to this story being being resurrected by other sources. I’ve been on dlisted for 10 years, and I don’t remember MK or anyone else writing firsthand articles bordering on “thinkpieces” from a “Thought Leader” point of view like this. This is typically Jezebel territory.

    I was wondering when they would get to him.

  8. LMAO! Touché.

  9. Oh but which film!? Face/Off with all the prisoners?

    Poor PAs. It gets no respect but they get called on to do all kinds of crazy shit.

  10. VeryOldSyntheticBabyBat

    Pay off from COs?

  11. You Ain't No Sanjaya

    Massage therapists do not exist to absorb this giy’s self loathing.

  12. Wonder if he had wet dreams about Nic Cage during Face/Off.

  13. Ewwww. Lol.

  14. Dumbass punks. Just come out as gay. You should have done that long ago.

  15. Madame Noire

    John Revolta. He’s creepy af. No big surprise.

    LOL, sorry! We were in a casting meeting watching tapes and one of the actors on tape seemed a little gay-ish, which could have been problematic because the role was a hot hetero lover. So the producer said, “That’s not a problem, we can totally edit out the gay. We had to do it for Travolta in __________. “

    Then he went on for 20 minutes about working on that film and how the male PAs would plead with the producers to ask JT to leave them alone and stop pestering them. As far as I could tell from his description, it sounded more like harassment than full on molestation or assault. More of a relentless pursuit that made the PAs uncomfortable.

  17. Marcus Miller

    Now John Travolta. I’m not sure how or why but Bryan Singer seems to have some type indestructible immunity.


  19. In a parallel universe, she runs the government and fits in perfectly.

  20. State of that, bloody hell.

  21. There are medications for the seizures that often come with it, though. Nobody dies of autism, but seizures can be fatal.

  22. Total octopus with Scarlett.

  23. There’s a dark side to Oprah. I have known her to make decisions based on what SHE THINKS people are ‘ready to hear’. In the past she has surpressed the truth. Awful lady, really.

  24. It doesn’t make a lotta sense for a guy who thinks he’s fooling the world, though. “I am making everyone think I like women, so I’m going to act all grabby and weird with them!”
