John Travolta is being plagued with yet another claim that he has a gay lover. This one is his former pilot who is suing the actor over right to speak about their alleged affair.
Travolta’s attorney calls suit “meritless” and a grab at “15 minutes of fame” but this is not the only similar claim that Travolta has faced in his career.
I’ve known for many decades porn director and star Paul Baressi, who was the first to out Travolta back in his heyday in the 1970s. They had an affair, Baressi sold his story to the National Enquirer, then he recanted (because he got offered a lot of money), and then he later started talking about it again.
The actor, who has been nominated for an Academy Award in the past, was hit with several gay-related lawsuits but this latest one claims a six-year affair with the actor.
Doug Gotterba claims in his lawsuit that he was threatened with legal action by Travolta’s attorney Marty Singer after he reportedly spoke to the National Enquirer about his alleged relationship with the actor and offered up some lurid details of their relationship. Supposedly the pilot has violated a confidentiality agreement he had signed when he was the actor’s employee.
“Mr. Gotterba obviously filed this lawsuit to get his 15 minutes of fame,” Singer says. “We plan to get this meritless case promptly dismissed.”
In addition, Joan Edwards, who worked for Travolta as a secretary from 1978 to 1994, discussed the alleged relationship with the National Enquirer. There are also two lawsuits by two male masseurs accusing him of sexual battery and harassment, which were both withdrawn. Then, a former Royal Caribbean Cruise line steward also claims he was sexually harassed by the superstar.
Travolta no doubt has had relationships with women. He had three children, and has been married to actress Kelly Preston for more than 20 years. One son died in his teens.
Robert Randolph, an interior designer by trade, said he first started visiting City Spa in Los Angeles in 1995. There, he met Travolta who often hooked up with other men there, he said.
The allegation that hurt the most was when his past supposed lover, the nanny of his son, Jeff Kathrein sold a story about him finding his son Jett dead in 2009.
“I found it most offensive with the loss of my son,” Travolta told the Daily Beast. “I felt like that was the lowest I’d ever felt. Sex stuff is always going to be interesting to somebody, but you stay away from family. You really should. With that, I always felt like the media — not all of the media, but parts of it — went too low there.”

Travolta’s sexual appetite was insatiable, that he wanted to make a sex tape, and that he enjoyed cavorting with multiple male partners at a time, according to one sex partner.
Another said, “I walked in and the guy was giving John a blowjob and, like guys do, he pulled his head up when I walked in. Then they left the room.” Randolph said the guy Travolta was with was a “very handsome, very hung” Middle-Eastern man. “I decided to follow them. There was an empty massage room upstairs where guys could go and have sex. I followed them up there and I went in the next room where I normally got my massages, and I watched them have sex. Full-blown sex. Anal.”
