John Travolta Denies Caribbean Cruise Worker’s Sex Charges: He’s Just Seeking ’15 Minutes Of Fame’ (EXCLUSIVE)
John Travolta is rejecting claims from a Caribbean cruise worker — the first of three alleged victims to give his name — who says the Hollywood megastar offered him $12 thousand for sex.
In a statement provided to Celebuzz, Travolta’s attorney called both the latest accusations “ridiculous” and suggested the man, Fabian Zanzi, was simply attempting to join the whirlwind of sexual harassment charges.
“This is just another ridiculous claim by someone hopping on the bandwagon to get his 15 minutes of fame with a story about something that supposedly happened over three years ago,” said Travolta’s high-powered attorney Martin Singer, whose Hollywood A-list client list has included Charlie Sheen, Demi Moore and Arnold Schwarzenegger, among others.
“At that time Zanzi’s supervisors did not believe him, confined him to his cabin, and subsequently fired him, according to media reports.”
Chile-born Zanzi, formerly of the Royal Caribbean cruise line, told South American media outlet ABC.es on Thursday, “[Travolta] 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.”
“Significantly, we never heard of this guy before,” Singer added, in a statement sent exclusively to Celebuzz. “The fact that we are only hearing about him now through tabloid gossip stories three years later speaks volumes.”
Two other masseurs listed only under the name John Doe #1 and #1 have accused the Pulp Fiction star, 58, of improper behavior during massage sessions.
But even before the allegations are heard in court, Travolta’s camp has provided evidence to contradict some of the alleged victim’s claims, including private flight-tracking information and a costume designer vouching for his whereabouts.
