John Travolta Lawsuit: New Evidence Contradicts Accuser's Claim

A masseur's sexual-assault claim against John Travolta appears to be unraveling even further, as flight records suggest the actor was not in Los Angeles on the morning of the alleged incident.

TMZ.com has posted flight records and documents apparently showing that Travolta, 58, arrived in New York from L.A. in the early hours of Jan. 16. The site has also posted photos of the actor during a wardrobe fitting later that day in New York's Greenwich Hotel. According to the lawsuit, the alleged incident occurred at 10 a.m. in Beverly Hills. (The flight can't be independently verified through public flight-tracking services because his plane's flight records are blocked.)

Travolta's attorney previously provided PEOPLE a photograph and a Mr. Chow restaurant receipt as proof his client was in New York that day.

The attorney has strongly denied all claims made by the L.A. masseur, as well as claims from a second masseur in Atlanta, who later joined the lawsuit against the actor. Each accuser is seeking $2 million in damages.



Okorie Okorocha, the lawyer for both plaintiffs, has said other accusers may come forward as well.

Travolta's attorney calls both accusations "absurd and fictional," and suggested the second accuser based his fabricated story on media reports that said Travolta was in Atlanta working on a movie.
