After an unidentified man filed a $2 million sexual battery lawsuit against John Travolta last Friday, a second plaintiff has come forward, claiming that he too was harassed by the Hollywood superstar.
The second man, who also chose to remain anonymous, accuses Travolta of "improper behavior during a massage session at an Atlanta-area resort," according to court documents. Both men are represented by attorney Okorie Okorocha, and they are each seeking $2 million. Interestingly enough, both plaintiffs have very similar stories: The first incident allegedly took place in a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel in January 2011, and it also involved Travolta making very aggressive advances towards the man whom he had hired for a private massage.
When asked about their decision to file the paperwork as John Doe 1 and 2, Okorocha tells People, "The reason my clients are wishing to remain anonymous is because the public passes judgment on sexual harassment accusers and people who file lawsuits in general." He continued, "As for evidence, I don't want to show my cards at this time."
When asked about the new suit, Travolta's lawyer, Marty Singer, told People, "This second 'anonymous' claim is just as absurd and ridiculous as the first one. The attorney who filed the lawsuit on behalf of his second anonymous client, who does not want to disclose his name although he is required to do so, was notified that his first client's claims were totally false and fabricated, since our client was not in L.A. when anonymous 'Doe #1' claims he interacted with John Travolta."
"Before the attorney for the two anonymous plaintiffs filed the claim on behalf of the second person who refuses to disclose his identity ... it is obvious that he checked media reports that my client was in Atlanta working on a movie," Singer added. "The claim by Doe #2 is just as fabricated as the claim by Doe #1. Our client will be fully vindicated in court on both of these absurd and fictional claims."
