Travolta divorce and those old sexual assault cases

Although John and his wife Kelly Preston are facing a $220 million divorce, the actor is desperate to avoid a messy, high-profile trial where all of his dirty laundry will be exposed.

“John surrounds himself with straight, macho guys, reeling them in with exotic vacations and an almost bizarre level of attention before making physical advances toward them.

“Now John is more desperate than ever to smooth things over with Kelly – she’s been around long enough to know all John’s darkest secrets. The last thing he wants is a messy public divorce where Kelly could reveal everything she knows, so now he’s backtracking and trying to be the perfect husband.”

Meanwhile, what's the update on those old sexual assault suits? HuffPo brings an update:

UPDATE: In an email, lawyers for John Travolta told the Huffington Post that the document obtained by Gawker does not reflect that any settlement payments were paid out, but rather it reflects cost and expenses incurred, which they say is consistent with legal fees being paid in connection with the defense of lawsuits that were filed. Additionally, Travolta's legal team would not comment on the authenticity of of the document obtained by Gawker.

PREVIOUSLY: John Travolta has been named in a number of sexual assault lawsuits over the past year, and according to a new report, the actor has paid out a considerable amount of money to settle these claims.

Those are just two of the sexual assault cases filed against Travolta last year. In June, cruise ship steward Fabian Zanzi filed a suit against Travolta, in which he claimed that in 2009 Travolta allegedly asked for a neck massage, and then exposed his erect penis and forcefully embraced him. In his suit, Zanzi claims that Travolta offered to pay him $12,000 to keep quiet about the alleged incident. In February, both parties agreed to drop the case, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Similarly, both John Doe plaintiffs dropped their suits merely weeks after they filed them, and though Travolta's lawyer, Marty Singer, had previously insisted that there had been no settlement made in those cases, Gawker claims that Travolta's insurance company documents prove otherwise.

Requests for comment made to Travolta's attorney have not been returned at this time.

OMG!! That cruise ship steward who Travolta harassed was named Fabian! That's just too rich!

Quote from LRH on RJ67......"So long as we are elusive or Fabian we grow strong, so I have examined the statistics, and we have grown in numbers to the degree that nobody could quite put a finger on what we were doing". :hysterical:

Straight up and vertical David Miscavige - straight up and vertical divorces in the Church of Scientology!

What a kooky church - what a kooky group - what a kooky kook!

Surely if Kelly is a good scientologist she would not be able to even hint at her husbands sexual activities, because he is in good standing. Any really juicy stories would therefore be kept under lock and key.

Is it normal for cabin stewards, even if they're called Fabian, to give massages to passengers with or without waving genitals? Surely that's a bit more than their job description.

I do wish the church would take a look at the world as it is now, not as it was in 1950. John Travolta is not the sort of guy that has herds of screaming teenage girl fans who would be upset if they found out he was 'batting for the other side''. OK James Dean had to keep it hidden, but John Travolta's not a teen idol anymore. Yes in the seventies, but that was over thirty years ago, he is now a charming but chubby mature man, and the real world accepts that gay men exist even in Hollywood.

Do we really care about JT and the tabloid fest occurring? I don't care if he blows dead goats, and while T Cruise is holding them down at the same time (rigor-mortis...)

The thing is that no one should give a toss about his sexual interests. What is attracting attention is that scientology would think it OK to lie about their celebrities to look better, scientologists are just human beings, not homo novis and they have as many gay people in it as any other group of humans. They also have right and left handed people and people who prefer blonds, so what?

What is of interest here is that the "holy scripture" of Travolta's "church" was written by a bigoted old bastard who was a homophobe. If JT is publicly acknowledged to be gay, the cult will have to either surrender their meal ticket, or show that it's all about the money, and the writings of the cult founder can be disregarded if you hand over enough cash.

Interesting times.

Also a reminder that Scientologist marriages seldom last. Nobody fails at marriages like Scientology victims.

But that can't be, there must be so many, provable well documented cases of homosexuals who have been cured by scientology, well documented cases of blind people who ran out engrams and became jet pilots, all those people with throat cancer who are now opera singers? One silly little case of a hideously unethical cleared cannibal proves nothing.

My dos pesos is that John would not be a Tone Scale failure at Covert Hostility if he left - he would be an instant icon; instantly embraced by the gays and straights. So I think, anyway. It would be a boon to his career. Further happy ending would include Kelly dropping the cult completely and hosting a great talk show or something.
