John Doe #2 Drops Out, Ends Travolta Sex Suit?
LOS ANGELES — The remaining plaintiff in the sexual battery lawsuit
against John Travolta fired his lawyer, bringing an end to the case, the
lawyer told CNN on Thursday.
The suit filed in federal court last week accused the actor of
groping two male massage therapists at hotels in Los Angeles and Atlanta
Attorney Okorie Okorocha, who initially represented the men
identified only as John Doe #1 and John Doe #2, said he did not know why
his Atlanta client decided to withdraw from the lawsuit.
John Doe #1, who said that Travolta sexually harassed him at the
Beverly Hills Hotel, hired Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred on
Tuesday, just hours after he withdrew from Okorocha’s lawsuit.
Allred said in a statement Tuesday that she and her new client would discuss if a new lawsuit would be filed against Travolta.
Travolta’s lawyer, Martin Singer, called the allegations by the men “ridiculous.”
