The past week countless actresses have stepped forward to share their harrowing stories of abuse and of course, this is not the first time that we have suspected that something was amiss is the powers of Hollywood.
But what did all these stories have in common?
They were all abused by men of great power and influence in Hollywood.
For the past decade, the ongoing joke was that if you wanted to make it big in Hollywood, you’d have to ‘speak’ to Harvey Weinstein.
But it would seem that the recent and multiple allegations against Harvey have unleashed a whole world of trouble for other big stars in Hollywood.
From Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Spacey, comedian Louis C.K, and now it would appear John Travolta has been added to that list.
We’ve all seen John Travolta in a number of films over the past few years.
He’s in everything, from Grease to Pulp Fiction. If you can imagine a film, it probably has John Travolta somewhere in there!
But this Hollywood star has recently been accused of sexual battery in a criminal complaint which was filed by a man who was 21-year-old at the time of the assault.
The incident reportedly happened at the LaQuinta Hotel in Palm Springs, California back in 2000.
During the time of the incident, Travolta demanded a deep body massage at the facility’s spa, so the spa facilities were closed after midnight, February 15th, 2000, for private use.
During the massage, the victim claims that Travolta repeatedly removed his towel, ‘exposing’ his buttocks to the victim.
During the body scrub treatment, Travolta apparently told the victim that ‘he was very attractive and that he had gotten him excited.’
The report then claims that Travolta then asked the victim to accompany him to the steam room.
The unnamed man agreed to it ‘so he wouldn’t have to sit alone’.
During their time in the steam room, the 63-year-old apparently offered the victim a message, the report says the unnamed man ‘agreed to let Travolta show him some of these techniques, and laid down on his stomach.’
While demonstrating some techniques Travolta apparently ‘reached under his towel and began to rub his [Redacted] inner thigh… and began rubbing him on his bare buttocks, as well as the groove between the buttocks’.
Traumatised by the incident, the 21-year-old reported the incident to Palm Springs Sheriff’s Department, and an officer was sent to the scene.
Upon arriving at the hotel, Officer Mark Peters was told an employee wanted to file a complaint against Travolta for sexual battery.
Officer Peters wrote in his report:
“[Redacted] told me he asked Travolta what area of the body he wanted him to concentrate on the most, and Travolta replied the buttocks.
“He said that during the course of the massage, Travolta kept removing the towel covering the area, and exposing his buttocks. [Redacted] told me it is improper to remove the towel, so he kept replacing it.
“[Redacted] said after the massage was complete they went into another room where he performed what he called a ‘Citrus Scrub’ on Travolta.
“He said that during the procedure, Travolta told him that he was very attractive and that he had gotten him ‘excited’… They moved to the steam room, where Travolta asked if he would accompany him, so he wouldn’t have to sit alone.”
“He said shortly afterwards, Travolta removed his towel and was nude.
“He told me that Travolta then asked him if he would like to see some of the massage techniques that he [Travolta] likes.
“Feeling ‘violated’ and ‘uncomfortable’, the man left the steam room upon which point, he alleges Travolta asked him if he had ‘ever had his a**hole licked by another man’ and other lewd comments such as, ‘what would he do it he ever had a sexual encounter with another man’ and if so ‘tell him what he would do , so he [Travolta] could have something to fantasise about.’”
According to Officer Peters the details of the story ‘do not meet the elements of battery or sexual battery’ and ‘none of the acts or statements were witnessed’ so ‘cannot be corroborated’.
To make matters worse, by the time Officer Peters was writing the report:
“Travolta had already checked out of the hotel, so I was unable to speak with him regarding this case.”
Officer Peters advised the man to ‘speak with a civil attorney’, but no charges were filed.
