John Travolta gets big money from gay bathhouse author




While John Travolta was being sued by former personal pilot Doug Gotterba over a disagreement about nondisclosure clauses, he won big against the author of a book claiming the actor frequently visited gay bathhouses. How big? Six figures big, that's how big.

A judge threw out a libel case brought by You'll Never Spa in This Town Again writer Robert Randolph case back in September, because there was no proof Travolta's attorney Marty Singer had said anything illegal about Randolph in response to the book's allegations. Now the judge has awarded Travolta legal fees from Randolph, to the sum of $139,645.17, TMZ reports. That 17 cents is important.

"This legal fee award is another complete and total victory for Mr. Travolta," Singer told the site. "Anyone else who files a ridiculous lawsuit against him should expect a similar outcome." Then Marty went shopping for yachts.
