Lawyers Wrangle Over John Travolta's Whereabouts During Alleged Masseuse Assault
John Travolta is facing allegations of sexual assault from not one but two male masseurs—and the lawyer who represents both clients, Okorie Okorocha, expects more masseuses to step forward with similar allegations. But for right now Okorocha is wrangling with Travolta's own attorney—pitbull to the stars Marty Singer—about where Travolta was on the morning of the alleged assault in the first case. The complaint against Travolta claims it happened at 10 am on January 16 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Singer vehemently denies his client groped John Doe 1 and claims that he wasn't even in town for a massage on the day that it occurred. The Travolta camp produced a receipt from a restaurant in New York that TMZ said it verified, and there are also pictures of Travolta in the afternoon (though it's not exactly clear what time).
Okorocha isn't fazed and tells TMZ that the photos and restaurant receipt don't prove that Travolta wasn't there that day. Singer responded that he has records showing Travolta was in New York the day before as well.
Both plaintiffs are seeking $2 million dollars.
