So, the lawsuit against John Travolta has been pretty much dropped, and obviously we're all now thinking the same thing: he paid off his multiple accusers. Right?

Well, not so fast, there, Tonto -- Travolta's lawyer claims that the suit droppage was done without a dime being handed out to anyone. TMZ reports that Travolta's lawyer, Marty Singer, roundly denied that anyone got paid.

"Not one penny has been paid," he said, "nor do we have any intention to pay any money for these ridiculous and false claims."

According to CNN, after the actor's first accuser dropped out of the lawsuit on Tuesday, a second accuser also fired his lawyer. And sure, that second accuser has now retained uber-attorney Gloria Allred, but according to a statement released by her office this morning, all she's saying is that she's "conferring with our client regarding what will happen next in this case."
