THAT SINKING FEELING

Cruise Ship Steward Files Sexual-Assault Lawsuit Against John Travolta

Fabian Zanzi, the cruise ship steward claiming John Travolta sexually assaulted him, is suing the actor, according to TMZ.

In 2009, Zanzi was a steward on a Royal Caribbean luxury liner, where his job entailed seeing to the needs of VIP guests. Travolta,  a passenger on the ship, asked Zanzi to deliver some food to his stateroom.  After he brought Travolta his meal, Zanzi claims, the star asked for a neck massage.  He began the massage, but says Travolta then intentionally dropped his robe, exposing his fully erect penis—and forcefully embraced him.

The cabin boy claims Travolta said, “Take me, I will take care of you, please” and offered $12,000 to buy his silence when he turned him down. Zanzi, who says the ship’s management refused to allow him to file a complaint, is suing for unspecified damages.
