His name is John Truesdale, he is 40 and he works as a masseur at the upscale Mandarin Oriental spa.
The 250-pound certified black belt tells the Daily News that 58-year-old Travolta “sexually accosted him in a hotel suite on the 15th floor in January. At that time the swanky hotel was called the Mansion on Peachtree.”
In an exclusive video that was posted to YouTube by Mr. X (the video has since been made private), Truesdale’s former co-worker, explains how an anxious Truesdale came running downstairs following his 15-minute encounter with Travolta.
“I can’t do this!” he quoted a flabbergasted Truesdale as saying at the time.
Moments later, Travolta came downstairs and ordered the masseur to return to his room. But Truesdale refused, according to the former co-worker.
Truesdale, who is now represented by Gloria Allred, filed a $2 million lawsuit against Travolta on May 8.
In court documents, Truesdale describes in graphic detail how Travolta manipulated his genitals — and how the actor, who was sexually aroused, started to “hump” the massage table in his suite at the hotel.
By that time Truesdale had enough of Travolta, who he accused of “spreading his butt cheeks,” and asking the former high school football player to pay particular attention to his butt muscles during the massage.
Travolta has vigorously denied the charges from Truesdale and his first accuser who has since dropped his lawsuit in California. Travolta’s lawyer, Marty Singer, calls the lawsuits “baseless” and a bunch of lies.
But other masseurs have come out of the woodwork with their own tales of sexual misconduct involving the former ‘Grease’ star.
According to the NY Post, Vikki Lizzi, the former fiancée of late actor Jeff Conaway, who co-starred with Travolta in ‘Grease,’ has come forward to reveal a shocking detail that Conaway wrote in a suicide note he left after an unsuccessful suicide attempt in 2006.
Conaway, who died at age 60 last May 2011 of complications from pneumonia, allegedly wrote that he awoke one morning to find Travolta, who was a guest in his home, giving him unsolicited oral sex. The bizarre episode ended Conaway and Travolta’s long friendship.
