John Travolta Facing Legal Action In Spa Saga
Troubled star John Travolta has become embodied in yet another legal problem, after the author of a book about the Hollywood star's alleged gay encounters has filed a libel case against him.
Robert Randolph, author of the autobiographical You'll Never Spa In This Town Again, insists that the star and his attorney discredited his book by falsely claiming that Randolph had mental issues, TMZ reports.
A statement made on behalf of Travolta has immediately tried to nullify the claim, saying; "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."
The statement continues by stating that; "Mr. Travolta will aggressively defend himself against this lawsuit and expects to be fully vindicated when this meritless case is dismissed."
Randolph claims, is his suit, Travolta's PR and his attorney MARTY SINGER began on an extensive smear campaign to discredit Randolph as best they can, which included them saying that he has mental issues and has spent time in a mental institution. The campaign may have had an effect as Randolph's tell-all book has suffered numerous set backs, with retailers refusing to stock it. Randolph is now suing for unspecified damages and amounts.
As of yet, neither Travolta nor Singer has made any comment.
