Travolta might have paid out $84k in sexual assault lawsuit settlements

New York, Apr 3 (ANI): John Travolta, who has been named in a number of sexual assault lawsuits over the past year, has paid out a considerable amount of money to settle the claims, it has been claimed.

Gawker has obtained an internal report from insurance claims made against the 59-year-old's production company, Constellation Productions Inc.

According to the website, the document shows that there were a total of six parties who had privately issued attorney demand letters "alleging sexual assault" within the last year, and that Travolta's insurer has paid out 84,000 dollars against two of the claims, the Huffington Post reported.

The "loss-run" report from Chartis Insurance shows that one payment went to a Chicago-area sports therapist, whose allegations had not been previously publicized, and the other payment for 80,750 dollars went to an unnamed masseur.

In May 2012, Travolta was hit with allegations from two unnamed masseurs who both sued the star for assault and sexual battery.

At the time, TMZ.com reported that the first "John Doe" tried to sue Travolta for 2 million dollars plus punitive damages after alleging that the actor "began rubbing the masseur's leg, touched his scrotum and the shaft of his penis" after having stripped naked during an appointment.

The following day, a man who was identified in the documents only as "Doe Plaintiff No. 2" claimed to have "substantial documentation and numerous witnesses regarding the substance of Travolta's actions.

Radar Online reported that both men were being represented by the same lawyer, and both were seeking 2 million dollars in damages. In the amended complaint, both men sued Travolta for sexual harassment as well.

In June, cruise ship steward Fabian Zanzi filed a suit against Travolta, in which he claimed that in 2009 Travolta allegedly asked for a neck massage, and then exposed his erect penis and forcefully embraced him.

In his suit, Zanzi claims that Travolta offered to pay him 12,000 dollars to keep quiet about the alleged incident.

In February, both parties agreed to drop the case, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Similarly, both John Doe plaintiffs dropped their suits merely weeks after they filed them. (ANI)
