Doug Gotterba, the man who claims to have had a gay affair with John Travolta, is now suing John and claiming that he never signed a confidentiality agreement which prohibited from talking to the media.
In his lawsuit Doug claims that he received a letter from Marty threatening to sue him for violation of the confidentiality agreement. TMZ is reporting that while Doug does admit to having signed a letter of termination after allegedly serving as John’s pilot, and gay boyfriend, from the years 1981 to 1987, he did not sign any contracts containing such an agreement. Meanwhile, John’s lawyer Marty Singer says that Doug’s lawsuit is “ridiculous,” because not only did he sign the contract, he also included the contract in his lawsuit.
Doug, however, stands by his claim and feels he should be allowed to speak freely to the press regarding John and his own relationship with the actor. Marty believes that the lawsuit was filed in order for Doug to get “his 15 minutes of fame,” and believes the “meritless” case will be “promptly dismissed.”
I’m not sure why people feel entitled to speak about private relationships to the media in general … oh right … those 15 minutes of looking like a fame seeking, untrustworthy leech … very tempting.
TELL US- DO YOU BELIEVE DOUG SIGNED THE AGREEMENT?
Oh yes she did! In an all new interview, Rashida Jones is publicly stating what we’ve all been thinking for years and years and years, which that John Travolta needs to come out of the closet already!
The 36-year-old actress made the shocking revelation in a new cheeky interview with SpinningPlatters.com to promote her new movie Celeste and Jesse Forever.
During the interview, the topic of conversation turned to R & B singer Frank Ocean who publicly came out of the closet last month. Rashida’s writing partner and former boyfriend Will McCormack first said: “There needs to be, like, a professional athlete that comes out.”
Rashida then added: “And a movie star! It’s time…Like John Travolta? Come out! Come on. How many masseurs have to come forward? Let’s do this.”
She is referring to John’s gay sex scandal from months ago during which seven men, yes seven, accused him of sexual assault. Three went on to file lawsuits against him. Shortly after, a report also came out alleging the married John, 58, had a six-year affair with his former male pilot.
“Big stars need to come out. Ricky Martin was huge. That was big; I was really happy about that,” she added.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK JOHN TRAVOLTA WILL EVER COME OUT OF HIS (ALLEGED) CLOSET?
UPDATE – Rashida has now apologized for her comments urging John Travolta to come out. She tweeted the following -
Made a thoughtless comment about John Travolta.I sincerely apologize.Nobody’s personal life is my business.

Masseur-gate was starting to die down a bit but thanks to yet another lawsuit, John Travolta is back in the headlines for sexually assaulting male employees all around the world! All allegedly of course.
Fabian, who was working on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship in 2009, alleges John, who was a passenger on the ship, ordered food and requested that Fabian deliver it to his room.
Fabian states that while in John’s room, he allegedly asked for a neck massage. When he went for John’s neck, the actor allegedly exposed his erect penis and forcefully embraced him.
John allegedly told Fabian he was “beautiful” and said, “Take me, I will take care of you, please.” When Fabian refused John’s advances, he alleges John offered him $12,000 to keep quiet about the incident.
Fabian, who is suing for unspecified damages, says he complained to his management but they did nothing. Fabian first spoke out about his claims last month.
John’s attorney Marty Singer is of course denying the claims, calling the lawsuit a “dubious allegation.” No word yet on if that’s code for we will offer him a settlement in private.
By the way, John, 58, has yet to speak out on the allegations of sexual assault by 7 different men. Maybe it’s just me but surely any heterosexual man who has been accused of sexual assault by 7 men would have spoken out by now to defend himself, and not hide behind lawyers.
TELL US – SHOULD JOHN BE DEFENDING HIMSELF? DO YOU BELIEVE THESE ACCUSATIONS?
It appears writer Robert Randolph was way ahead of this time as he was one of the first people to reveal John Travolta’s alleged penchant for having gay sex with random men in spas. Fast forward to today and seven men (including a few male masseurs) have accused the actor of sexual assault.
In 2010, Robert released the book “You’ll Never Spa in This Town Again” which detailed John’s alleged sexual encounters with many men, including himself.
In his lawsuit, Robert states that after he released his book, John and his pitbull attorney Marty Singer (pictured above) waged a PR war against him, during which they falsely accused him of having mental issues and spending time in a mental institution.
Robert states that the PR attack, which was meant to tarnish his reputation and paint him as an unreliable source, ended up working and led the public to not purchasing his book. Not just that but retailers were also deterred from selling his book.
Robert is now suing both Travolta and Singer for unspecified damages.
A rep for Travolta calls the lawsuit “absurd,” while Marty Singer is threatening a counter lawsuit saying in a statement: “This is a ridiculous lawsuit. It is based on our letter which was completely privileged under the law. We intend to sue the attorneys for malicious prosecution after the court promptly dismisses this baseless lawsuit.”
Meanwhile, it doesn’t appear John plans to come out of his comfy closet anytime soon. The last we heard of the male masseurs suing him for sexual assault was that he was allegedly trying to offer them settlements behind the scenes.
TELL US – DOES ROBERT HAVE A CASE? DO YOU BELIEVE JOHN IS GAY?
Further proving he’s completely innocent and very heterosexual to boot, a new report this morning is stating that John Travolta is now offering hush money having settlement talks with one of his male accusers.
Yes, while Masseur-gate has taken a rather anti-climatic turn in recent weeks, unfortunately for us, it seems all the action is happening behind the scenes.
“John Travolta’s lawyer is currently in settlement talks with one of the accusers. The goal is to have a settlement reached very quietly and quickly because John just wants this scandal to go away,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.
The source adds: “No money has been paid yet, but it’s almost a done deal. It will be an out of court settlement and John Travolta’s name won’t even be in the agreement to ensure complete confidentiality, along with a clause that states if the man ever goes public with his story, he will be sued for at least twice the amount of the settlement.”
While a total of seven men have accused the a-list actor of sexual assault, only two have filed lawsuits. It also appears the accuser who is having settlement talks with John’s lawyer Marty Singer has yet to file a lawsuit. Interesting.
“If the accuser who is in talks with John’s lawyer right now is unable to reach a settlement, he is absolutely prepared to file a lawsuit against him,” the source says. “The man isn’t intimidated by John’s celebrity status and just wants the actor to be held accountable for his actions.”
This report seems quite believable as a different report by the NY Daily News came out last week stating John offered Accuser #2 John Truesdale a settlement amount of $125,000 to drop his sexual assault case against him.
It was also reported days ago that John, 58, alongside his wife Kelly Preston, 49, and their two kids have been hiding out in the Bahamas.

TELL US – IS A SETTLEMENT AN ADMISSION OF GUILT TO YOU?
While John Travolta has publicly insisted, via his attorney, that he is innocent of sexually assaulting one or seven male masseurs, it seems the actor is feeling a tad guilty in private.
Sources allege the a-list actor’s camp offered the six-figure sum to Truesdale, an Atlanta-based massage therapist, to withdraw his $2 million federal lawsuit, in addition to keeping his mouth shut about the alleged sexual assault.
Truesdale reportedly turned down the offer last Wednesday, and soon after fired his attorney Okorie Okorocha, to hire Gloria Allred on Thursday. Of course, Travolta’s attorney Marty Singer is denying any offer was made.
As for Truesdale, 40, he is meeting up with his attorney Gloria today in Georgia. Something tells us the pitbull attorney will be able to get Truesdale way more than 125K!
We do have to wonder what kind of evidence Truesdale has against Travolta as his original attorney stated he had proof of the sexual assault weeks ago.
TELL US – SURPRISE BY THE ALLEGED SETTLEMENT OFFER?
