John Travolta Awarded Legal Fees

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Legal Issues,

John TravoltaThe author who sued John Travolta for ruining his reputation has been ordered to pay the actor's legal bill.

Robert Randolph wrote You'll Never Spa In This Town Again, in which he claimed the Pulp Fiction actor enjoyed gay sexual relations in Los Angeles' City Spa in the 1990s. He then claimed John and his lawyer Marty Singer had falsely accused him of having serious mental problems to try and make him out to be an unreliable source.

However, after a judge threw out his lawsuit, there was further bad news for the author when he was ordered to pay John's legal fees of $139,645.17. "This legal fee award is another complete and total victory for Mr. Travolta. Anyone else who files a ridiculous lawsuit against him should expect a similar outcome," Mr. Singer told TMZ.

John has been dogged by a number of claims of sexual misconduct, some of which have since been retracted, from a number of male masseurs since the publication of You'll Never Spa In This Town Again.

Kelly Preston Blames Chemicals for Son’s Death

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Features,

Kelly Preston with her late son JettKelly Preston has opened up about the death of her 16-year-old son Jett.

The 50-year-old The Last Song actress - who has been married to 58-year-old Savages star John Travolta for 17 years - thinks that chemicals in food contributed to her son's autism, as well as the severe seizure that caused his death in 2009.

Speaking on an episode of The Doctors - which airs in the US on Wednesday - Kelly said, "[Jett] was autistic. He had seizures and when he was very young, he had Kawasaki Syndrome (which can cause inflammation of the arteries and usually affects children between the ages of two and five years old)."

Jett died after suffering a seizure and hitting his head on a bathtub at the family's home at the Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island in the Caribbean and his mother believes chemicals caused it: "I strongly believe as a mother, as does my husband, that there are certain contributing factors that lead to autism and some of it is very much the chemicals in our environment and in our food."

Kirstie Alley and Patrick SwayzeKirstie Alley claims she and the late Patrick Swayze were once "in love."

The 61-year-old actress - who called her former Look Who's Talking co-star John Travolta the greatest love of her life just days ago - claims she was also once "in love" with her North and South co-star.

The former Dancing With The Stars contestant told Entertainment Tonight on Monday, "Both of us were married. We did not have an affair. But again, I think what I did was worse. Because I think when you fall in love with someone when you're married you jeopardize your own marriage and their marriage. It's doubly bad."

Lawsuit Against John Travolta Thrown Out by Judge

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Legal Issues, Rumors,

John TravoltaJohn Travolta has been cleared of accusations he ruined an author's reputation.

Robert Randolph wrote You'll Never Spa In This Town Again, in which he made claims the Pulp Fiction actor enjoyed gay sexual relations in Los Angeles' City Spa in the 1990s but then claimed John and his lawyer Marty Singer had falsely accused him of having serious mental problems to try and make him out to be an unreliable source.

However, a judge has thrown out his lawsuit against John and Mr. Singer, ruling a letter in which they made the accusations was a legitimate part of the legal dispute and so they cannot be prosecuted for it, according to TMZ.

Both John and Marty have previously issued statements branding the lawsuit "ridiculous." A representative for the Hairspray star said, "The lawsuit filed by Robert Randolph is absurd. The suit is based on a privileged communication, and it will promptly be thrown out by the court. To evaluate the credibility of Robert Randolph and his ridiculous lawsuit one need look no further than his own statements published on his website stating that he sustained 'permanent brain damage' and had to 'retrain' his brain."

John Travolta to Pay Settlement?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Legal Issues, Rumors,

John TravoltaJohn Travolta is reportedly in talks to agree a settlement with one of the men who accused him of sexual battery.

The actor has been the subject of accusations from a number of male masseurs, with two filing lawsuits against him, and though the proceedings were later dropped, his legal representatives are said to be working on a financial agreement with one of the men.

"John Travolta's lawyer is currently in settlement talks with one of the accusers. The goal is to have a settlement reached very quietly and quickly because John just wants this scandal to go away. No money has been paid yet, but it's almost a done deal. It will be an out of court settlement and John Travolta's name won't even be in the agreement to ensure complete confidentiality, along with a clause that states if the man ever goes public with his story, he will be sued for at least twice the amount of the settlement," a source said.

The accuser currently in negotiations with John's team claim he was groped by the actor within the last two years, which is within the limitations of being able to file a civil lawsuit, which he is prepared to do if a settlement isn't reached.

John Travolta’s Bahamas Hideaway

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Legal Issues, Rumors,

John TravoltaJohn Travolta is hiding out in the Bahamas.

The actor has recently been accused of sexual misconduct from a number of male masseurs - which he denies - and has reportedly jetted off to a vacation home in the Bahamas with his wife Kelly Preston and children Ella, 12, and 18-month-old Benjamin to ride out the scandal, according to E! News. The house is not the same property where John and Kelly's 16-year-old son Jett tragically died in January 2009.

Earlier this week the family spent time in Florida at their home in the gated Jumbolair aviation community and a nearby Scientology building, where onlookers said they appeared "normal."

"He was at Jumbolair, the whole family, acting like everything was normal," the witness explained.

The sightings of family unity come after it was claimed Kelly told friends she has "had enough" following the allegations and the publication of pictures the star dressed as a woman at a private event in 1997, and had decided to leave her husband.


Has Kelly Preston Left John Travolta?

Kelly Preston and John TravoltaKelly Preston has reportedly walked out on John Travolta.

The 49-year-old actress is said to have told friends she has "had enough" following a string of allegations against the star of sexual misconduct from a number of male masseurs, and the publication of pictures the star dressed as a woman at a private event in 1997.

"Kelly told me their marriage is over and made it clear that she's no longer living in the family home. She's put up with John's double life for decades while his behavior remained in the shadows. But all this coming out in public has humiliated her. Kelly is absolutely destroyed," a source told The National Enquirer.

The photographs, which were obtained by The National Enquirer, show the 58-year-old actor at a party in Los Angeles wearing a white dress with a bra visible underneath, a brown belt, fur stole, earrings and a necklace, and wears eyeliner, pink lipstick and a blonde wig.
