John Travolta Sued By Man Claiming To Be Lover

By: Amanda Crum - December 3, 2012

A man who worked as John Travolta’s pilot for six years and claims they had a steamy love affair is suing the actor after Travolta’s lawyers tried to hush him up by bringing up a confidentiality agreement that he allegedly signed when his employment ended.

Doug Gotterba went public with the affair to the National Enquirer recently and says he was sent a threatening letter by Travolta’s lawyer, Marty Singer.

“Mr. Gotterba obviously filed this lawsuit to get his 15 minutes of fame. We plan to get this meritless case promptly dismissed,” Singer said.

But Gotterba insists he only signed a termination agreement and never agreed to confidentiality, which would have bound him from talking about his employment during the years 1981-1987. He says that while their relationship ended just before Travolta married wife Kelly Preston, Travolta confided in him that he still preferred men.

Travolta has had several allegations thrown his way this year concerning gay affairs and has been embattled in legal issues since at least the spring, when two massage therapists accused him of inappropriate behavior while under their care.

    Its pretty daming that these men keep coming forward about my handsome man John being gay and saying these different gay acts about John. One time you can say bull, two times you look away three times you start to rub your head, more than that you ok all these men could not be lying on this one man. I was not thier and I did not see it so I really don’t know rather its true or not and not one of these men can prove it. So I choose to stick it out with my man John, because more than anything money talks and bullshit stinks. And all these accusations didn’t start until John lost his son. I have nothing to hide use my name a nd email I’m about the same age of John and I belive in him, John is an awsome man. John keep up the faith,Love Lera.

    If you choose to be in a gay relationship you have no right to bitch and try to cash in its no different than any other one. GET OVER IT – Move On he owes you nothing. If he was not a well known celeberity you would not give a danm, money and publicity is what you want, to bad its even news worthy.
