John Travolta wasn't in Los Angeles on the day he allegedly did some pretty unspeakable things to a masseur. According to TMZ, the "White Man's Burden" star was in New York City, which completely contradicts the times indicated in the lawsuit against him. The holes in this curious story, it would seem, are starting to come to light.
If the masseur's lawyer is to be believed, Travolta arrived for his appointment at 10am on January 16th. However, flight records place the actor on the other side of the country. Unless the Travolta has somehow mastered the ability to control space and time with the flick of his wrist, he couldn't have been in Los Angeles at the time of the incident.
Additionally, TMZ has discovered that Travolta was staying at the Greenwich Hotel in New York City on the 16th. He was also spotted at a restaurant called Mr Chow on the same day. So what does this say about the charges levied against him? The plot thickens.
Okorie Okorocha, the lawyer representing the masseurs, claims that other individuals are coming forward with similar stories about Travolta's extremely uncouth behavior. He also added that the actor's attorneys stated in the past that Travolta was, in fact, hanging around Los Angeles during the scheduled appointment. Someone is clearly bending the truth in this case, though it's difficult to tell at this point who the guilty part is.
Although the story is quite serious -- sex crimes, regardless of their nature, should never be tolerated -- this hasn't stopped snarky folks on Twitter from weighing in on the subject. If you're easily offended by sexual innuendo perpetrated or really lame jokes, then you should probably stop reading right now.
John Travolta assaulted me too but it was with "Battlefield Earth". I should be able to get a few bucks for that, right?
