Third masseur accuses John Travolta of inappropriate behavior
Posted 11 May 2012 - 05:54 PM
Fabian Zanzi, a Chilean-born cruise worker who worked in VIP services, said Travolta offered him $12,000 for the tryst.
Zanzi says he refused.
Travolta was on the five-day cruise in 2009 without wife Kelly Preston and hit on Zanzi with a cheesy pickup line, the cruise worker said.
“He said that I had something on my neck. I thought it was lint,” Zanzi told the Chilean news show “Primer Plano.”
“When he got close to me, he took off his white robe and he was naked.”
“He hugged me and asked me to give him a massage,” Zanzi said in the interview, which aired last Friday.
Zanzi said he has filed a lawsuit against Travolta, but there were no records of a federal or state case yesterday.
He did not respond to requests for comment.
The cruise-ship worker previously revealed some details of the alleged attack to Robert Randolph — who followed Travolta to bathhouses for years and wrote about it in his book “You’ll Never Spa in This Town Again.’’
According to Randolph, Zanzi told Royal Caribbean supervisors about the alleged attack — but Travolta departed before the cruise ended.
Zanzi’s interview comes on the heels of a multimillion-dollar federal lawsuit by two anonymous male masseurs who claim Travolta sexually assaulted them — one at The Beverly Hills Hotel on Jan. 16 and the other in an Atlanta hotel on Jan. 25.
Travolta lawyer Martin Singer has blasted both John Doe claims as “completely false.”
On Wednesday, he put up flight and hotel information, as well as a restaurant receipt, that he said prove the “Grease” star was in New York on Jan 16.
That alibi grew stronger yesterday when Denise Wingate, the costume designer for upcoming Travolta flick “Killing Season,” said she spent Jan. 16 with the actor in New York.
“I was with him all day. He was nowhere near Los Angeles,” Wingate told The Post.
She said that two time-stamped photos — depicting Travolta at a costume-fitting for the movie in New York — released
by Travolta’s lawyer yesterday belong to her.
“I find the whole thing so offensive; I hope this shuts down the case. Everybody is coming out of the woodwork for a quick buck.”
Meanwhile, John Doe No. 1 issued a rambling statement to RadarOnline, wishing Travolta “good health [and] happiness.”
His lawyer, Okorie Okorocha — who represents both anonymous men — has been in trouble with a judge for filing numerous claims in the past on behalf of nameless plaintiffs, according to records reviewed by The Post.

...Robert Randolph — who followed Travolta to bathhouses for years and wrote about it in his book...
The strangest thing I find is that we live in a world where someone's job can be to follow around someone else to bathhouses and then write a book about it.
Sixth strangest, in case you were wondering, is that the guy's name is Robert Randolph.

Prosecuter: "Mr Travolta ... Did you infact touch that mans penis who is sitting right there in court today?"

Phone won't stop ringing with Travolta tales
But lawyer won't accept more clients
The lawyer for an Atlanta masseur suing John Travolta for sexual assault says his phone is ringing off the hook with other potential plaintiffs — but he’s not returning calls.
Okorie Okorocha, representing the man known only as John Doe No. 2, said Saturday that a mixup over a date in the lawsuit filed by John Doe No. 1 had left him a little gun-shy.
“I’ve heard from a bazillion people, but I haven’t called them back,” Okorocha told the Daily News. “I’m really sketchy about talking to people.
I’m just laying low with potential clients.”
Okorocha has said more than 100 men contacted him with tales about Travolta’s horny hijinks.
The California lawyer is down to one client in the Travolta case after parting company with John Doe No. 1, who alleged in court papers that the Hollywood hunk groped him on Jan. 16.
Travolta’s camp quickly produced alibi evidence showing the actor was in New York, not California, on that date. Okorocha told the plaintiff to find a new lawyer once the discrepancy became public.
Okorocha spoke after The News reported that a former employee at the ritzy Peninsula Hotel said Travolta was blacklisted there for his inappropriate behavior with its masseurs.
“He’s probably one of the few people who would talk about it,” the attorney said.
The two John Does and a third man, cruise ship worker Fabian Zanzi, emerged in the last week to accuse the “Pulp Fiction” star of massage misbehavior.
Former Peninsula masseur Michael Caputo said he spoke out about Travolta’s inappropriate acts to support his fellow licensed massage therapists.
Marty Singer, lawyer for the two-time Oscar nominee, has ridiculed all the charges and dismissed Caputo as a “disgruntled employee” of the tony rooftop spa.
The tales of the masseurs and the cruise ship worker were also bogus, Singer said.
Okorocha said he wasn’t bothered by reports about his own past, including his role in a failed attempt to peddle a sex tape involving Verne (Mini-Me) Troyer.
“Nobody wants a lawyer who’s nice,” he said. “Nobody wants a rich, fat lawyer. I don’t want to be called nice.”
