Plaintiff lawyer: 'Potential for more accusers in virtually every state' in sex assault suit against John Travolta
According to the lawyer representing two masseurs in a sex assault case against actor John Travolta, the publicity surrounding this week's court filing has caused more potential accusers to come out of the woodwork.
"By the time this case is over, [John Travolta's lawyer] Marty Singer will have to accuse more than 100 men of lying, because I have been contacted by people, mostly men, that have first hand information about similar behavior on John Travolta's part to that contained in the lawsuits I have already filed against him," Okorie Okorocha told RadarOnline.com. "I have witnesses and the potential for more accusers in virtually every state of the union who have called me. I'm currently in the process of investigating their claims and verifying the information before possible further action is taken."
Travolta is being sued by two unnamed male masseurs -- John Does No. 1 and 2 -- who both claim the actor tried to have sex with them during massage sessions.
"None of the events claimed in the suit ever occurred"
- John Travolta's rep
John Doe No. 2 filed a $2 million sex assault suit Tuesday morning in a Los Angeles court claiming "substantial documentation and numerous witnesses regarding the substance of Travolta's actions," RadarOnline reports. John Doe No. 1 filed a sexual assault lawsuit on Monday saying Travolta, 58, touched his genitals, propositioned him and touched himself lewdly.
The "Grease" star's lawyer Martin Singer has labeled both accusers' claims "complete fiction" and threatened legal action.
The website TMZ also published receipts and photos it says proves Travolta was in New York City the day John Doe #1 said Travolta propositioned him. Travolta's rep said in a statement to E! News that John Doe No. 1's claim was a lie and the "Pulp Fiction" star was on the East Coast on the day the incident allegedly occurred.
But John Doe is fighting back, telling RadarOnline.com on Tuesday: “I have proof to support the truth that I’m telling.”
He refused to divulge what that proof was, RadarOnline.com reported.
Travolta, who is an ambassador for Australia's flagship airline Qantas, has been married to actress Kelly Preston since 1991. The couple had three children together. Their oldest son Jett died tragically from a seizure in 2009.
Preston gave birth to the youngest of their children, Benjamin, in November last year.
