The masseur claims that the actor rubbed his butt and masturbated in front of him at a resort in Atlanta. The lawyer says his client wants his life back and for that to happen at this point we would be willing to accept a settlement. Even if they don’t settle, the case won’t go to trial because both sides have agreed the case should be heard by a private judge behind closed doors in mediation.
John Travolta asked a room steward on a Royal Caribbean cruise line to give him a neck massage in his stateroom back in 2009. The steward, Fabian Zanzi, claims he was delivering something to Travolta’s stateroom when the actor asked him for a neck massage. The guy obliged — and Travolta “then told him he was a beautiful person and invited him to return to visit him later that night.”
Fabian claimed he refused because of a strict company policy banning RC employees from fraternizing with guests. Fabian reported the incident and was disciplined for the neck massage, which is a violation of the no-fraternization rule. He subsequently left the company.
Now, the guy says the encounter was much more than described in the incident report, claiming Travolta opened his robe and gave him a big hug while his penis was erect, and offered him $12,000 for sex and silence.
