John Travolta's attorney has slammed a second male masseur who's filed a new sexual harassment lawsuit against the actor, dismissing the latest allegations as "absurd and fictional".
Reports emerged on Monday, suggesting the Grease star, who is married to actress Kelly Preston, had been slapped with legal action by a plaintiff identified only as John Doe.
In the suit, filed last Friday, the alleged victim claimed Travolta had touched his genitals and sexually propositioned him after hiring the man for a massage.
The actor's lawyer Marty Singer blasted the claim as a "baseless lie" and insisted the lawsuit was "complete fiction and fabrication".
However, a second masseur – who has also chosen to remain anonymous— came forward on Tuesday and filed a second claim against Travolta, accusing the star of inappropriately touching the new plaintiff and masturbating during an appointment on January 28, at a spa resort in Atlanta, Georgia.
But Singer has shot down the new legal action and has blasted the lawyer representing both accusers of using media reports to make the second lawsuit more believable.
A statement issued by legal powerhouse Singer to TMZ.com reads: "This second 'anonymous' claim is just as absurd and ridiculous as the first one.
"The attorney who filed the lawsuit on behalf of his second anonymous client... was notified that his first client's claims were totally false and fabricated, since our client was not in LA when anonymous 'Doe #1' claims he interacted with John Travolta.
"That fact is easily provable since John Travolta was on the east coast working on a movie on the date that anonymous 'Doe #1' claims he interacted with our client. After we were able to establish that anonymous 'Doe #1's' claims were totally absurd, the same attorney has now filed a claim on behalf of another plaintiff, whom he identified as 'Doe #2'...
"Before the attorney for the two anonymous plaintiffs filed the claim on behalf of the second person... he checked media reports that my client was in Atlanta working on a movie. However, the claim by Doe #2 is just as fabricated as the claim by Doe #1. Our client will be fully vindicated in court on both of these absurd and fictional claims."
