In the papers, Travolta's lawyer asserts that the claim is 'blatant defamatory lies' from a 'patently unreliable source' and 'is absolutely ridiculous.'
John Travolta had his team dismissing a gay secret life report, hours before his wife Kelly Preston gave birth to their second son Benjamin. Travolta's team has shot off a five-page legal papers to Gawker, a site which ran a story that the actor has a habit of hooking up with men at Los Angeles sauna.
In the legal papers, which were obtained by Gossip Cop, Travolta's attorney Marty Singer called Gawker's posting "false and outrageous". Gawker itself ran the story with headline read "The Secret Sex Life of John Travolta" based on Robert Randolph's claim which the writer also exposed in his self-published book entitled "You'll Never Spa in This Town Again".
To Gawker, Randolph claimed he had watched Travolta had sex with several men in different occasions and he went on alleging the "Old Dogs" star once seduced him when they "were both next to each other in the steam room". Singer, however, described Randolph's stories as "blatant defamatory lies" from a "patently unreliable source."
Singer even blasted Randolph by pointing out that the "author" acknowledged on his own website that he suffered "permanent brain damage" in 2003. Singer went on saying that Randolph's stories "go back fifteen years, yet inexplicably, he has waited until now to peddle these phony tall tales."
Singer noted that the idea Travolta "engaged in multiple adulterous sexual encounters in different public locations in Los Angeles (where he does not live), and that each time, the (nonexistent) events were coincidentally witnessed by (Randolph), is absolutely ridiculous."
And in the legal papers, Singer demanded Gawker to immediately and permanently removed the "Secret Sex Life of John Travolta" post and "publication of an unequivocal and prominent retraction of the false and defamatory statements."
