Travolta hit by second sex assault claim


A second unidentified masseur has joined a $2m lawsuit against John Travolta claiming the actor sexually assaulted the men in two separate incidents during private massages, according to amended court documents filed on Tuesday.

The second unnamed man, resident of Georgia and referred to as John Doe No. 2 in court papers obtained by Reuters, claimed Travolta rubbed his legs, touched his genitals and tried to initiate sex at a private appointment at the actor's Atlanta hotel room on 28 January.

The allegations echo those of John Doe No. 1, a resident of Texas, who filed the initial complaint late last week accusing the actor of sexually assaulting him during a private massage at the Beverly Hills Hotel on 16 January. Travolta's spokesman has called the lawsuit "complete fiction and fabrication".

The plaintiff's attorney, Okorie Okorocha, said that since the initial complaint was filed last week, he has had many more potential victims come forward with similar complaints.
