    John Travolta sued for sexual battery

    http://www.people.com/people/article...593894,00.html

    I'm not sure what to make of this. Very sad for his family whether it's true or not.

    Sounds like someone is just trying to get money from him. I wonder what type of proof they actually have.

    Rumors have circulated for years about his sexual proclivities so I guess I'm really not surprised by this story. There are supposed to be many more masseuses who have had similar encounters with him so it sounds like this story won't be going away very soon.

    I read about this yesterday too. I do feel badly for his family. I feel badly for him as well if the claims are unfounded.

    I read the legal documents filed on TMZ's website. There are a lot of details. It may be true or it just may be a way to shake down a celebrity for cash. I really don't have an opinion either way.

    What I find most interesting is that these men were allowed to file as John Doe's. In such a high profile case, their names are going to come out or they'll end up giving interviews. Just by filing the suit, they've already done damage to Travolta's image/reputation.

    I am sorry to hear this, I think JT is great and he has had so much sorrow in his life. Not naming the complaintants is not cool, if they want to make the charges let them stand behind them, not be cowardly.

    My favorite movie of his is Michael, I've seen it a million times. I'm sorry he is having these problems and wish him well.

    I wouldn't call it sexual battery unless these are legitmate masseuses at hotels and not male prostitutes.

    I think this is more of an attempt to out him.
    I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

    I feel bad for his family but not him. I do need more facts but I tend to
    feel some of this may be true. Over the years, so many sexual rumors about John, dating back to his Welcome Back Kotter days.

    What I find highly disturbing, is anyone at all, man or woman, forcing themselves on another sexually like what may have taken place in these lawsuits. I find it so offensive and if John did do this, I hope he pays for his crime.

    We must wait for all the facts but also must remember, just because he is a celebrity does not mean he is above all others and not cabable of doing these henious acts.

    The accusers' attorney, Okorocha, tells PEOPLE: "The reason my clients are wishing to remain anonymous is because the public passes judgment on sexual harassment accusers and people who file lawsuits in general."

    I am sorry but this bit made me laugh. Yeah, his clients are the ones who are being judged. John and his family surely don't have that option now do they? Wow. til I see something credible, think I will withhold judgment on whether this case has wings or not.

    I'm not surprised, although I am disappointed. I suspect there will be more joining this suit. There have been rumors about him for years and my friends in the film industry have shared many stories about him.

    Or, conversely, that he is capable. He is innocent until proven guilty; this seems more a money grab than anything. These people won't put their names to the charges, that speaks volumes. IMHO

    I hear you, and have heard the same stories. In all honesty, whether he is gay or bi or whatever is irrelevant for me. If he did assault these men in any way, now that's effed up. Being a masseuse, escort, or prostitute does not give "johns" (lol) a free pass to rape and batter.

    I've never heard rumors that JT is gay. Why would JT have to force himself on anybody? I'm sure if he is gay, he would have worked out having a discrete partner available to him by now. He's JT.
    What are they accusing him of? Holding them down, raping them? What?

    I think the new hit show 'The Client List' is bringing out the worst in the vultures of the world. They're after his money is all. They probably gave crappy massages so he didn't tip them (fill in large amount equal to whatever they expect a celebrity to tip) what they thought they deserved or he turned them down!

    I'm remembering how devasted JT was when his gf, who was much older than him, died from cancer. Are people speculating that she was his 'cover' when he was young? I never got that impression.

    Are JT's accusers gay or straight? If they're gay, then why not do whatever he wanted? Come on - they're out for his money, probably because he didn't accept their offers. If they're straight, why would JT, if gay, expect anything from them? Not buying it.

    I just read the TMZ article - never again. Why is the massuse being picked up and being driven to JT's bungalow in a car that has condoms in the console? Give me a break. Why wouldn't he just leave the room and what was his penis doing out to begin with? Oy vey.

    Assault is the operative word in this story; if there were proven assaults then they have a case.

    Otherwise, I don't understand the obsession with who is putting what where. People's sexuality is their business.

    My theory on why so many famous people find themselves in situations like this:

    Famous stars can have virtually anything they want, just by making a phone call, or nodding their head. Men, women, people, are constant throwing themselves at them, just for the chance to say they've been with them (certainly, things like this don't normally happen to the rest of us). Eventually, with so many different "opportunities" being offered to them, they grow bored with what has always satisfied them before, and need a new "thrill" to up the ante. This could take the form of sex, drugs, alcohol, etc.

    There are some grounded famous people, but they seem to be the exception, rather than the norm.
