John Travolta should probably stop getting massages. A third male accuser, Fabian Zanzi, has come forward saying the actor made sexual advances on him while Zanzi was giving Travolta a massage. But unlike Travolta’s other accusers, identified as John Doe No. 1 and John Doe No. 2, this guy’s not a masseuse. He was a room steward on a Royal Caribbean cruise line.
And, more interestingly, Zanzi made his allegations on a Chilean entertainment-news program a full two weeks before the first John Doe filed a federal complaint against Travolta, reports the Los Angeles Times.
According to the official cruise incident report obtained by TMZ, Travolta asked Zanzi to give him a neck massage in his stateroom in 2009, but the documents don’t say anything about Travolta propositioning Zanzi.
Following the massage, Zanzi says Travolta “then told him he was a beautiful person and invited him to return to visit him later that night.” Zanzi says he refused because of the company’s fraternization policy, though Zanzi was still disciplined for the neck massage after reporting the incident.
Zanzi now says Travolta opened his robe during the encounter, gave him a big, naked hug, and offered him $12,000 for sex.
“The incident report now confirms Mr. Zanzi fabricated his story about my client. He never stated that my client did anything wrong,” Travolta’s attorney Marty Singer tells TMZ. “Obviously, if he had engaged in any inappropriate conduct he would have reported it to his supervisors.”
Whether he gave him a naked hug or not, isn’t it a little fishy to ask a stranger who’s not a masseuse to give you a neck massage?
