17 May – An ex-masseur of a hotel has stepped up against John Travolta, bringing the total of men that have accused the actor of sexual harassment up to four.
According to the Digital Spy, a former employee of Peninsula Hotel named Michael Caputo claimed that the "Grease" star was seen 'removing his towel, grinding against the massage table and lifting his butt in the air' by a male colleague.
His inappropriate behaviour allegedly got so out-of-hand that none of the male masseurs wanted to serve Travolta and the 58-year-old had to be banned from the hotel altogether.
"Travolta would always request a man for his massage, but after a while no-one would take him. It got to the point where they couldn't find any men to take him, and they had to ban him," Caputo said to the New York Times.
However, Travolta's name was cleared from the blacklist after receiving a complaint, but hotel officials have yet to make any statement regarding Caputo's claims.
Meanwhile, Travolta's attorney Marty Singer has denied that Travolta was ever banned from the Peninsula.
"If he was banned, do you think he'd ever go back?" Singer said. "He's never been banned, I guarantee you... The hotel never told John he was banned, and John never acted improperly," he said, adding that Caputo's claims were false.
Travolta is said to be planning to launch lawsuits against each of his accusers.
