A second masseuse has accused the Saturday Night Fever star of being inappropriate during a deep body massage, claiming the actor groped his bare buttocks, exposed himself, and made lewd comments hoping to feed his fantasies.
The alleged encounter took place at in the LaQuinta Hotel in Palm Springs, California on February 15, 2000. That night, the hotel spa had been opened at 1:30 a.m. for Travolta’s private use only — and he took full advantage of it, according to a police report obtained by Radar.
It is said Travolta had initially requested a deep body massage at the facility’s spa, but the man claims the actor wanted a more private rubdown shortly after the session began.
During the massage, the Grease star kept removing the towel and “exposing” his bare buttocks. After a body scrub treatment, the then-21-year-old man said Travolta told him “he was very attractive and that he had gotten him ‘excited.'”
Travolta then allegedly asked the masseuse to join him in the steam room “so he wouldn’t be alone.” Now naked in the steam room, Travolta allegedly offered to show off his own massage techniques on the masseuse.
The masseuse then laid on his stomach and, according to the report, “Travolta reached under his towel and began to rub his inner thigh.” The actor then “began rubbing [the masseur’s] bare buttocks as well as in the groove between.”
At that point, the masseuse allegedly told the actor he felt uncomfortable and left. But Travolta didn’t give up yet — he reportedly offered to “soap up” the masseuse’s back while he showered. The man declined and the two headed back to Travolta’s room where a massage table was set up.
Instead of giving him another rubdown, the masseuse packed up his table and supplies — but Travolta wasn’t finished.
The man claimed the actor kept making lewd comments and suggestive inquiries, asking if he “ever had his asshole licked by another man,” and “what he would do if he ever had sexual encounter with another man” so Travolta “could have something to fantasize about.'”
Feeling “violated” by the encounter, the masseuse reported the incident to the Palm Springs Sheriff’s Department. Officer Mark Peters‘ official report states that the spa employee wanted to file a complaint against Travolta for sexual battery, however Peters noted that the case’s “details do not meet the elements of battery … or sexual battery.”
In the report, Peters noted “none of the acts or statements were witness” and, therefore, “cannot be corroborated.” The case was then “closed unfounded” and officials advised the alleged victim to “speak with a civil attorney.”
