John Travolta - Defamation Case Against John Travolta Proves Unsuccessful
A defamation case against John Travolta and his lawyer Martin Singer was dismissed in court earlier this week, making the latest, and perhaps last, legal case involving Mr Travolta's sexuality to be brought to the public's attention.
The case was brought forward by Robert Randolph who, in February this year published a book detailing the actor's alleged sexual encounters with a number of men in spas across he US. Randolph had claimed that Travolta and Singer had spread false statements about his mental health in a bid to prevent people from buying his book, titled You'll Never Spa in This Town Again, which was published in February this year.
The publication came three months after two separate and anonymous male masseurs filed sexual assault cases against the Pulp Fiction star, both of which were dropped soon after once their authenticity was called into question.
Randolph's case was dismissed at the Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday (September 28th 2012) after his centrepiece of evidence was perceived as insufficient cause of defamation. The evidence in question was a letter that Singer had written to the website Gawker.com responding to some of the claims expected to be brought up in the then unpublished book by Mr Randolph.
The actor, who has been married to actress Kelly Preston since 1991, has denied any of the claims brought forward relating to his sexuality.
