New evidence has turned up that could play a key role in a lawsuit filed by a masseur who claims actor John Travolta sexually assaulted him, TMZ.com reports. The evidence reportedly shows that Travolta was not in L.A. at the time of the alleged incident, as the masseur claims, but had flown to New York the previous night.
The masseur, identified in the suit as John Doe, is seeking $2 million in damages, accusing Travolta of a variety of sexual overtures after Travolta hired him for a massage, as we reported earlier this week.
Photos reportedly show that Travolta was in Manhattan, having wardrobe tests shot at the Greenwich Hotel for an upcoming movie, on Jan. 16, the date of the alleged incident. Furthermore, he was reportedly seen at Mr. Chow’s restaurant that evening as well, in Manhattan.
The website reports that it checked the flight records and learned that Travolta’s private jet left L.A. a 8:21 p.m. on Jan. 15 and landed on Jan. 16 at 3:59 a.m. in Westchester County, N.Y. The masseur’s lawyers contend the inappropriate incident between their client and Travolta happened Jan. 16 at the Beverly Hills Hotel at 10 a.m.
