Travolta lawyer debunks sex claim by 3rd man
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) – John Travolta’s lawyer on Friday hit back at ‘ridiculous’ new claims of sexual advances levelled at the actor by a third man, as a first accuser backtracked on the date of an alleged Beverly Hills incident.
Cruise ship worker Fabian Zanzi claimed on a Chilean TV show, Primer Plano, that the Hollywood star offered him US$12,000 (S$15,000) to have sex while on a cruise in 2009.
It was unclear whether Zanzi had filed a legal action against Travolta, who is already the subject of a sexual assault lawsuit by two unidentified masseurs in Los Angeles.
‘This is just another ridiculous claim by someone hopping on the bandwagon to get his 15 minutes of fame with a story about something that supposedly happened over three years ago,’ Travolta’s lawyer Martin Singer said in a statement on Friday.
