Another (Alleged) Ex-Lover Sues John Travolta

Embattled movie star John Travolta isn’t going to wrap up 2012 without another alleged gay lover filing a lawsuit. Former pilot Doug Gotterba claims he had a “steamy affair” with the Savages actor and resents receiving a threatening letter from Travolta attorney Marty Singer.

Gotterba claims he never signed a non-disclosure agreement as is therefore free to discuss whatever went on when he was in Travolta’s employ in the 1980s. Singer told  TMZ that Gotterbadid indeed sign a confidentiality agreement—and in fact included the document in his lawsuit.

Singer calls Gotterba’s suit “ridiculous” and claims the pilot is simply trying to get his 15 minute of fame. “We plan to get this meritless case promptly dismissed,” he replied.

    Ok, 1 complaint i can see, 2 eh, what are we now at 3, 4,5. Yes there is still the possibility that they are trying to get in their few moments of fame, but how many have come forward? Then comes the question of WHY? What ever happened to what happens in the bedroom stays in the bedroom?

    @Raquel Santiago: “Outing” is what happened. The GLBT community now demands those ppl that have influence and public life to be honest and out to their fan base.

    Why the hell does anyone care about Travolta anymore? If he is gay, he is so closeted that he will never willingly admit to being gay and must be so self-loathing that his being publicly gay would not add to our positive image and would not further the cause of LGBT rights. Travolta has to live with himself – we don’t have to exist vicariously through him.

    Relevant or not now(and admit it,Travolta was HOT in that
    nearly naked dance film he did[what?]25,or more years ago!),It’s a shame the news has to be funneled through a shithole like TMZ!

    It’s obvious that all these accusations are fake. Every single case is out for money, and not just to put the truth out at cost of their reputation and privacy.

    @Red Meat: Probably,Red Meat!!
    Nothing lower than fake palimony suits!
