Actor John Travolta had quite a week after three unidentified men came forward to file a $2 million assault and sexual battery lawsuit, but in the way of it all the evidence does cast doubt on the accusers.
The men allege that Travolta, 58, assaulted them in two separate incidents during private massages.
A third man, cruise ship worker Fabian Zanzi, said on a Chilean TV show “Primer Plano” that Travolta offered him $12,000 to have sex while on a cruise in 2009.
Travolta’s lawyer have called the claims absurd and ridiculous and say all three men are trying to get their “15 minutes of fame.”
On Friday celebrity website Radaronline.com reported that the first accuser, known only as John Doe No. 1, now claims to have been wrong about the date – January 16, 2012 – of the alleged assault.
The lawyer for John Doe No. 1 said he no longer represents the man, although he is staying with the second accuser, John Doe No. 2.
Tiger Woods, Hugh Grant, Rob Lowe and Kim Kardashian, among others, have all been mired in sex scandals. As was the case with them, Travolta’s career should survive, the experts said.
Experts also believe that Travolta and his representatives have done a good job of disproving and deflecting the claims.
