( 4UMF NEWS ) John Travolta Offered Cruise Worker Money For Sex:
John Travolta was looking for a man to rock his boat, according to a cruise ship worker who says the actor offered to pay him for sex.
Fabian Zanzi — the first of three alleged victims to give his name — said the actor accosted him in 2009 while he was working on a Royal Caribbean ship.
Zanzi told Spanish news website ABC.es that the “Pulp Fiction” actor offered him a cool $12,000 for sex.
His bombshell allegation was trashed by Travolta’s lawyer, Marty Singer.
“This individual is simply hopping on the bandwagon to get his 15 minutes of fame by coming up with a story for the first time with something that supposedly happened over three years ago,” Singer told the Daily News. “Nobody has ever heard from this guy before. No lawyer has contacted us,” he added.
Zanzi, who is Chilean, was working on the liner at the time and was in charge of VIP guests. Zanzi said he refused the actor’s advances.
“He told me he had something on his neck,” the website quoted Zanzi as saying. “I thought it was fuzz. As I approached, he took off his white robe and was naked.”
“He hugged me and asked me to do a massage,” Zanzi said.
Two anonymous masseurs — one in Atlanta and the other formerly in California — have filed lawsuits against Travolta, claiming he sexually abused them. Both are represented by lawyer Okorie Okorocha.
Singer blasted their “ridiculous” claims, saying: “It’s enough that anyone in America can sue anybody, but even worse when someone thinks they can do it anonymously.”
He insisted he doesn’t know who the two John Does are, adding: “I have ESPN, but I don’t have ESP.”
The Daily News learned that Travolta’s luxury Gulfstream jet landed in Westchester County early that morning.
“It touched down here at 3:53 a.m., but I don’t know who was on it,” said John Inserra, the noise abatement officer at the Westchester County Airport.
The airport staffer said he remembers sending a “friendly letter” to Travolta’s Constellation Productions company afterward because the private plane landed during the airport’s Voluntary Restraint From Flying period, which runs from midnight to 6:30 a.m.
Travolta’s camp has repeatedly denied he was in Beverly Hills the morning of the alleged sexual battery, saying he checked into the Greenwich Hotel that morning. He was in New York to work on the movie “Killing Season.”
“I was at the Greenwich Hotel in New York with him,” said Denise Wingate, costume designer for the movie. “I knew that he arrived in the middle of the night and was sleeping most of the morning, so our three-hour fitting was in the afternoon.”
Wingate said it would have been physically impossible for Travolta to have been in California attacking a masseur 31/2 hours before the fitting.
Singer said Okorocha has not yet provided particulars allowing him to disprove the Atlanta accuser’s allegation. “They haven’t identified the hotel like they did with Doe No. 1, you know, which we were able to prove that my client doesn’t stay at the Beverly Hills Hotel. They haven’t come back with a time when it occurred.”
