Oh dear. Things just seem to be getting worse and worse for John Travolta.
According to a new claim, Travolta tried to give his Grease co-star Jeff Conaway oral sex while he was sleeping. Travolta allegedly tried to perform the act at Conaway’s home in the 1990s, Conaway’s former fiancée Vikki Lizzi told the National Enquirer.
The remarks, are an added blow (no pun intended) to Travolta who seems to be fighting sexual assault and sexual battery accusations on numerous fronts.
Ms Lizzi claims that Conaway made the claim in a suicide note in 2006 – he sadly passed away in 2011 from complications of pneumonia. In a separate interview, Lizzi tells Star magazine that Conaway would often claim Travolta was in a sham marriage with his wife Kelly Preston, saying, “Jeff told me that John and Kelly’s marriage was an arrangement. Jeff said that Kelly knows that John is gay, and that’s why she’s OK with it.”
The accusation comes after a Los Angeles masseur filed a lawsuit against the actor, claiming he had attempted to sexually abuse him during a treatment session at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Though he later conceded to having gotten his dates mixed up, the man – known as John Doe No.1 – has since hired attorney-to-the-stars Gloria Allred. In a statement to People magazine, the lawyer said, “We are in the process of conferring with him regarding the next steps, which he may wish to take”.
Three more men have come forward with claims that Travolta tried to assault them. Of course, John’s team is denying the claims.
