Third man accuses John Travolta, says he offered $12,000 for sex
There are a lot of twists and turns in the Great John Travolta Masseur Scandal of 2012, most recently being a third man stepping forth to say the actor offered him money for sex. The surprise this time is the guy is letting his name be used.
Fabian Zanzi told ABC.es that in 2009 Travolta accosted him while Zanzi was working on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, offering him $12,000 for sex -- although Zanzi says he refused Travolta's advances. The Chilean says he was in charge of VIP guests at the time, the New York Daily News reports, but that special treatment likely didn't include the naked hug Zanzi claims Travolta gave him.
"This individual is simply hopping on the bandwagon to get his 15 minutes of fame by coming up with a story for the first time with something that supposedly happened over three years ago," Travolta's attorney, Marty Singer told the Daily News. "Nobody has ever heard from this guy before. No lawyer has contacted us."
Singer has been working overtime lately, most recently disproving prior claims by a California man that Travolta offered him a "reverse massage" by showing the actor was in New York on Jan. 16 and not Los Angeles. Travolta's Gulfstream jet landed in Westchester County that day, the paper says.
"It touched down here at 3:53 a.m., but I don’t know who was on it,"Westchester County noise abatement officer John Inserra told the Daily News. He says he remembers sending Travolta's Constellation Productions company a letter because the arrival was during a voluntary restraint from flying period ovbserved by the airport, between midnight and 6:30 a.m., the paper says.
The costume designer for the upcoming movie Killing Season says Travolta was there working on the movie. "I was at the Greenwich Hotel in New York with him," Denise Wingate said, noting it would have been pretty difficult for him to get to L.A. and back for the alleged incident that day. "I knew that he arrived in the middle of the night and was sleeping most of the morning, so our three-hour fitting was in the afternoon."
A source told RadarOnline that John Doe No. 1 says the attack still happened, but obviously on a different date. You'd think if you were going to sue for $2 million claiming sexual battery, you'd check your day planner a little more closely.
