    John Travolta Hit With Second Sexual Battery Claim From Another Masseur

    The massage industry is piling on John Travolta all of a sudden.

    The movie star was hit with a second NSFW sexual-battery complaint in five days, this one filed by an unidentified masseur who claims that Travolta exposed and touched himself while being given an in-room massage at an Atlanta hotel, according to documents obtained by E! News.

    Both plaintiffs are represented by the same attorney, Okorie Okorocha, who filed the original complaint on behalf of John Doe No. 1, and then filed an amended complaint today adding John Doe No. 2 that now charges Travolta with sexual harassment in addition to assault, sexual battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

    "This second 'anonymous' claim is just as absurd and ridiculous as the first one," Travolta's attorney, Marty Singer, tells E! News. He said yesterday that Travolta wasn't even on the West Coast on Jan. 16, when John Doe No. 1 claims an incident occurred.

    As for John Doe No. 2...

    In the amended complaint, the second plaintiff states that he was booked to do an in-room massage for a "Mr. White" on the 15th floor of an Atlanta-area resort and, when he asked a coworker to do it instead, saying he didn't like in-room appointments, the coworker declined and told him that the guest in question had been banned from the spa he used to work at in Los Angeles.

    John Doe No. 2 claims that Travolta had a "strange demeanor" and his eyes were bloodshot when he walked into the room, undressed and climbed on the table. The actor then, per the suit, pushed the sheet away, complaining that it was "sticky."

    The complaint states that Travolta then proceeded to ask the masseur to pay special attention to his buttocks during the rub-down. The plaintiff claims that Travolta had an erection and "spread his butt cheeks open."

    Plaintiff No. 2 then claims that Travolta flipped over on the table and started to "grab, rub and caress" the masseur's upper thighs and buttocks, and then tried to put the masseur's hand on his scrotum.

    Travolta then wanted the masseur to rub his abdominals, the suit claims, but he refused to cover his penis and the masseur objected. John Doe No. 2 then alleges that, with about 15 minutes left in the massage session, Travolta began masturbating and the plaintiff "said he had to go."

    John Doe No. 2 is asking for at least $2 million in damages, as is John Doe No. 1.

    And they'll get nothing, as far as Travolta's lawyer is concerned.

    "The attorney who filed the lawsuit on behalf of his second anonymous client...was notified that his first client's claims were totally false and fabricated, since our client was not in L.A. when anonymous 'Doe No. 1' claims he interacted with John Travolta," Singer said.

    "Significantly, although the same attorney made the fabricated claim for Doe No. 1, there was never any claim made by anonymous Doe No. 2 before he filed his specious lawsuit. 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. 

    "However, the claim by Doe No. 2 is just as fabricated as the claim by Doe No. 1," Singer concluded. "Our client will be fully vindicated in court on both of these absurd and fictional claims."
