The first of two “John Does” who have made claims of sexual assault against John Travolta has dropped out of the lawsuit, People magazine reports.
The move comes as evidence has mounted that appears to contradict his claims, the story reports.
His attorney, Okorie Okorocha, told the publication: "Let’s just say we had differences in opinion of how to handle the case and decided to part ways.”
A second John Doe remains involved in the lawsuit, in which he is seeking $2 million from Travolta.
Okorocha indicated earlier this week that the case appeared to be headed to court, as we reported previously.
Marty Singer, an attorney for Travolta, has called the claims from both accusers “absurd.” Commenting on the accusations from the second accuser, he told the publication: "We’ll disprove [Doe Number Two’s claims], but we need specifics first. It’s hard to disprove something when you don’t have more specific allegations."
