Proof Travolta Didn’t Grope Masseur: Handsome Tip At NYC Resto (For A Handsome Waiter)?

TMZ is spinning more stories around the John Travolta-masseur scandal, which now has two masseurs accusing him of unwanted sexual conduct toward them.

TMZ claims to have a picture of Travolta from the date that Masseur-Accuser-#1 names, placing him in New York City. To buttress the fuzzy photo, they present a receipt from fancy NYC Mr. Chow’s. The total is $382.69, with a handsome $100 tip—”the kind of generous tip for which John is known,” they say.

Thing is: TMZ’s pic looks shoddily Photoshopped, and, if it is him, he could be anywhere that calls for a jacket and scarf, which includes Canada, Russia, and Sweden. (All of which have gay-friendly masseurs, probably.)

Plus: the receipt is unsigned. We’d need Travolta’s John Hancock to believe that one.

Even if the receipt were real, it’d probably be generous not because the service was good, but because the waiter was a handsome man with big hands.

      Its possible he spent the morning in LA and the evening in NY. The receipt is from 11:30 PM.

      Sorry, again, if there was proof he was out of town, they never would have filed the case. Travolta’s attorney’s knew about this for over a month and if they’d had the prrof the plaintiff’s attorneys could lose their law licenses if they still filed in the face of that evidence.

      Those pics were no doubt sent by Travolta’s publicist. If the proof was real they would have never filed, or Travoltas attorneys would have already had the case thrown out and filed a suit against the attorneys and plaintiff.

      rather sad the guy is being persecuted like this especially by fellow travellers- whether he is gay, straight,bi or whatever is his business – he’s hardly a hypocrite espousing anything – Travolta lives his life and is not know for making judgements on others. As for a masseur suing for 2m because he did/did not/ make a pass … gimme a break .. speaks for it self ..

      While I can entertain a fantasy that John T is gay I find the massage therapist stories so implausible and the reporting very unkind and inappropriate. John T could conjure up and afford so many more opportunities thanftfter to act like a drunk and cross a boundary in a massage pallor. I find this Scientology a lot of caca and can imagine closeted people using it as a cover and desperate reach for internal troubles, this story does not sound like how a big time actor like Travolta would act. I think it unkind to the man given that he is still mourning the loss of his son to play this story day after day. Let’s stop acting like queens and caddy and be responsible with our rhetoric and accusations.

      John Travolta is just another man who enjoys homosexual sex acts but does not identify as gay.

      26 percent, while nice, is hardly particularly handsome in fine restaurants where waiters regularly receive 30%.

      Now that we have heard two sides of the story, wonder what the third side of the story or rather the truth is. The massage therapist story his hilarious, something about being legit yet advertises on Craigslist and has the client pick him up at some random street corner. As for Travolta’s side of the story, a receipt with no signature, pics taken in NYC hardly back up this claims that he wasn’t in LA. One would think any random celebrity whom is in transit between NY and LA at any given time would have more then a few people able to confirm having seen the person in one place or the other. I’m smelling and attempt at extortion and now a Scientology cover-up.

      OH NOoo not John T! This is a very curious story. Were the police called? Security maybe? Sounds like a payday scam to me. If I felt threatened I would attack or scream for help, not call a lawyer. But that’s just me.

      Lol hahaha this story is ridiculous. John Travolta would not be trying to score with some sketch masseuse. Talk to people who are from Hollywood or surrounding neighborhoods. The rule in the business is keep quiet when it comes to those in the closet. Within the confines of upscale l.a. neighborhoods Hollywood closet cases are free to do what they please without the fear of pictures getting out or people talking. People like John go to “party’s” that move from mansion to mansion and require membership card as well as a security pat down at the door to make sure you are not bringing cam’s or recording devices in. The workers sign a confidentially agreement before they meet with clients to make sure everything stays quiet. Honestly gay hollywood is not just these “glass closet cases”, most of them are the very masculine rugged males who nobody has ever questioned. Sorry though no Pitts and Clooneys in the club unfortunately. You guys should go to the abbey around 10 am on weekdays and look for the fedora and aviator wearers (idk why the food is good but not WOW). Or just walk down Westwood, Palisades, and Beverly and see which starts have dog walking companions

      @christopher di crapito: funnier how some people misread the article and don’t understand what the word buttress means and think the receipt is Travolta’s supposed alibi LOL.

      His religion/cult makes him a self-hating homophobe who sucks dick.

      Big deal. He’s fat and ugly and a bad parent who killed his kid.

      Is the picture of John Travolta dressed up as a fat woman that you keep showing supposed to be the “proof” that he’s really gay?

      I just want to say that I grew up in California, and came out in 1975. Our community has really come a long way since that time. What I want to know is why anyone even gives a rats ass about what John effing crazy Scientology freak Revolta does,EVER??? I was there when Harvey Milk was murdered,saw my friends get clubbed by cops during the White Night Riots. You people, and I mean everyone, Gay, Straight, Bi, Blue, Green, Yellow, Brown, Black,Whatever!!! Need to get a life. Lady Gaga and a host of other people are by far more interesting and note-worthy than some tired old bloated Hollywood has-been. Our collective asses are on the line here people, and even though Obama is a lying,pandering,many-faced politician, he is the lesser of many evils. So please give your attention,love,and support to the people and issues that really matter,and don’t forget to vote in November 2012.
      Thanks a million folks. Dagrlzrd.

      @Larkin Member-What a mean-spirited person you are…who are you to make the judgemental statement that John Travolta “killed” his son. As someone who has lost a child, I can assure you Travolta didn’t “kill” his child. You’re a first-class A_ _hole!

      In America, we’re innocent until proven guilty, and I’m willing to give John T the benefit of the doubt; even though my inner voice sez, “I wish he’d grope me!”, he may not even be gay. Although my inner voice also sez I’m wrong on that for sure. But I don’t think he’d force himself on an unsuspecting massuse unless he was getting a positive “come-on” vibe, so if there is any truth in it I think it was a set up. Precisely because of whats happening now. A lot of people stay in the closet, not just because of denial but also what it could do potentialy to their careers, so I don’t begrudge him not coming out, but if I were him I’d never be alone with any male, just because things like this can happen if your rich and famous.
