John Travolta Massage Suit Dismissed

The suit alleged that the "Pulp Fiction" star had behaved in a sexually provocative way with a male masseur

An explosive lawsuit alleging that John Travolta acted inappropriately with a male masseur has been dismissed, according to a court document obtained by TheWrap. 

No cause for the dismissal was given. Okorie Okorocha, an attorney for the anonymous plaintiff, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

John Doe #1 alleged that Travolta acted improperly during a January massage session at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Okorocha told TheWrap last week that he had parted ways with the plaintiff, though his name is listed as attorney on the notice of dismissal. Previously, photo evidence and a restaurant receipt placed Travolta in New York on Jan, 16, the day of the alleged incident.

Another plaintiff, whose suit does not appear to have been dismissed, was identified as John Doe #2. He claimed that Travolta grabbed, rubbed and caressed his buttocks and upper thighs during a Jan. 28 massage at an Atlanta resort. The suit went on to allege that the actor began masturbating with about 15 minutes left in the session.

Okorocha, who also represents the second plaintiff, has not yet responded to TheWrap's request for comment regarding the status of John Doe #2's complaint. John Doe #2 was added to the lawsuit with an amended complaint days after the initial complaint was filed.

The lawsuit, filed earlier this month, is seeking $2 million in general damages.

Martin Singer, an attorney for Travolta, did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Singer has vehemently denied the claims of both plaintiffs.

On Monday, Okorocha told TheWrap that he would push forward with the suit and was seeking a private trial, with sealed records.

"We are proposing a full trial that will be a fight like no other," Okorocha told TheWrap.
