John Travolta offered $125,000 to the second masseur who accused him of creepy antics on the massage table.A source close to the Atlanta masseur revealed as John Truesdale told the New York Daily News that Travolta's legal team offered him $125,000 to withdraw his lawsuit and keep quiet.

The source said Truesdale rejected the offer. Travolta's team said they haven't offered to pay off any of the accusers—nor do they have any plans to.

"Not one penny has been paid nor do we have any intention to pay any money for these ridiculous and false claims," said Travolta's attorney Marty Singer in the statement.

Truesdale fired his original attorney Okorie Okorocha and hired Gloria Allred.
