John Travolta Sued for Alleged Exposure
A cruise ship steward has accused John Travolta of sexual assault. Fabian Zanzi, a former steward for Royal Carribean Cruise, was delivering food to Travolta’s room when he alleges that the star of Grease asked for a neck massage.
When Zanzi reached for his neck, he claims that the actor dropped his robe. After exposing his erect *****, he embraced Zanzi and told him he was “beautiful.” The actor then asked the steward to take him. He further assured Zanzi that he would take care of him.
After Zanzi resisted, Travolta allegedly offered him 12,000 dollars to remain silent. He is now suing for an undisclosed amount.
Travolta’s attorneys are denying that the incident occurred.
Travolta’s lawyer Marty Singer just released a statement, claiming, “This is another ludicrous lawsuit with inane claims. It is obvious that Mr. Zanzi and his lawyers are looking for their 15 minutes of fame.
“The lawsuit’s ridiculous claims are completely contradicted by what Mr. Zanzi told his employer back in 2009 when he was being disciplined for his own violations of company policy. In his handwritten report three years ago, the only physical contact he claimed occurred was allegedly touching my client’s neck. The inappropriate conduct he alleges in his lawsuit is absent from his written report he submitted at the time. That glaring omission speaks volumes. Also calling his credibility into question is his dubious allegation that his employer supposedly restrained him in a room on the cruise ship for five days, yet after that supposedly occurred, Mr. Zanzi continued to work for Royal Caribbean for years, on multiple ships. Now, after waiting three years, and after getting paid to tell his story to the media, Mr. Zanzi has filed this absurd lawsuit.
“We are confident that my client will prevail on the merits and that he will be completely vindicated in court.”
