John Travolta Accuser Drops Claim
A man who filed sexual battery charges against John Travolta has filed papers to dismiss the case.
The masseur - who has been named only as John Doe #1 - had originally accused the actor of assaulting him on January 16 at the Beverly Hills hotel but made an application in California this morning to have the lawsuit dismissed.
A second masseur - known as John Doe #2 - is still pursuing his claim, which alleges the Pulp Fiction star sexually assaulted him in an Atlanta hotel. The second man's lawyer, Okorie Okorocha - who had dropped the first masseur as a client when he claimed he had the date of the alleged assault wrong after Travolta was able to prove he was elsewhere - insists he intends to pursue the allegation as far as possible.
"Believe me, he's not going anywhere. He was really traumatized by this. He went to the doctor for anxiety. This is somebody in the south, not Beverly Hills. When a brother is going to the doctor for anxiety, it has to be pretty bad," the lawyer told The New York Daily News.
John's lawyer has denied the allegations against him, including the claims of a third man, Chilean-born Fabian Zanzi who alleged the actor '"hugged" him, asked for a massage and offered him $12,000 for sex while Fabian was working on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship in 2009. Fabian - who was in charge of taking care of VIP guests on the boat - says he refused John's offer.
