Today brings more trouble for John Travolta, who is facing a second lawsuit from a male massage therapist claiming he was more interested in masturbation than massage during a recent encounter.Travolta is currently being sued by a unidentified male masseur who alleges the actor masturbated during his deep tissue massage session, and tried to get him to have sex with him.

Tuesday, another masseur has filed a $2 million claim, and says, according to RadarOnline, that he has "substantial documentation and numerous witnesses regarding the substance of Travolta's actions."

Both massage therapists have the same lawyer. The original complaint has been amended to include the second accuser, and levies accusations of sexual harassment. (For those so inclined, RadarOnline has a .pdf of the complaint available for download.)

In the suit, the first plaintiff says Travolta himself picked him up in his black Lexus SUV, and that there were Trojan condoms in the car along with some chocolate cake wrappers (now that is a party!). Travolta took the masseur to a bungalow of the Beverly Hills hotel, claims the suit, for the massage.

Likening Travolta's behavior to that of a "mischievous child," the suit alleges Travolta kept pulling down his towel while on the table to show his ass, and also touched the therapist's scrotum and penis.

When the therapist wouldn't comply, Travolta allegedly tried to get a "reverse massage" situation going. From the suit: "

Travolta, had removed his draping and was masturbating. Travolta's penis was fully erect, and was roughly 8 inches in length, and his pubic hair was wirey and unkempt. Sweat was pouring down Travolta's neck, and he asked Plaintiff again to say something nice to him."

Travolta allegedly went for a hard sell, explaining how he'd grown to like the taste of semen, and how the therapist could experience "the best fucking of his life."

The masseur didn't take him up on his offers.

The second incident allegedly took place on January 28, 2012, when Travolta, using the alias "Mr. White" arranged for the masseur to meet him in an Atlanta hotel room. The second massage therapist claims Travolta kept trying to get his hands to work on his buttocks, and then abruptly turned over to reveal his erection and refused to cover it up to let the masseur work on other parts of his body. The last 15 minutes of the session were dedicated to Travolta masturbating, claims the suit. Oh, Mr. White!

Yesterday, Travolta's rep issued a statement denying the initial suit, calling it "a complete fiction and fabrication."

Travolta's attorney is ready to play hardball. He told RadarOnline:

"The problem in America is anyone can sue anyone. However, in this case this unidentified plaintiff and his lawyer will regret they filed this fabricated suit. We intend to sue both of them for malicious prosecution."
