John Travolta’s first accuser is speaking out in the wake of new evidence, which seemingly discredited his case. After flight records and photos proved that Travolta was in New York at the time John Doe claimed the actor sexually assaulted him, the anonymous fan addressed the situation.
While still refusing to disclose his identity, the man released a statement saying, “Despite the circus that celebrity matters seem to spiral into, we should grant all parties involved a wait-and-see attitude, and wait for either the official decision of a judge and jury, or the possibility of a dignified discussion between people who are not pit bulls, or aces, or anything, but are actually officers of the court (lawyers) who have sworn an oath to protect the justice system from losing its blind lady of justice with scales and replacing her with the days of Salem Witch Hunts.”
- The flight records show that Travolta flew out of LAX at 8:21pm on January 15 and landed in Westchester County, NY at 3:59am. John Doe claims the alleged sexual assault occurred during a 10am massage at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 16th.
THIRD MAN STEPS OUT
Meanwhile, a third man has come forward with similar allegations, accusing the actor of accosting him on a cruise back in 2009. Fabian Zanzi told South American news website ABC.es that Travolta said, “He had something on his neck. I thought it was a fuzz. As I approached, he took off his white coat and was naked. He hugged me and asked me to do a massage.”
Zanzi claims that Travolta offered $12,000 to have sex with him, but he says he refused.
- Reports have said that Zanzi also filed a sexual harassment lawsuit, but it’s unclear if he has actually done so.
