John Travolta’s alleged gay ex-lover sues for the right to out him

John Travolta is as straight as cooked spaghetti (i.e. he’s gay, if you didn’t get that memo), but he’s not out, despite the neverending stories about his various homosexual escapades. One of his ex-lovers in particular, a man named Douglas Gotterba, says they had an affair back in the ’80s and wants to write about their relationship in a tell-all memoir. The problem is, it would go against a 20-year-old confidentiality agreement, so he’s taking it to court to get that overturned.

From the New York Daily News:

In a National Enquirer story labeled “ridiculous” by Travolta’s camp, pilot Doug Gotterba said he first met the “Grease” star in February 1981 when he interviewed for a pilot job – and by September they were lovers.

“I know the date (the affair began) because I still have the log book and records,” Gotterba, 62, told the Enquirer.

He said they flew to Monterey, Calif., together and shared a “fantastic” bottle of merlot wine over dinner at the Highlands resort in Carmel.

“I got the sense I was being courted,” Gotterba said. “As we walked from the restaurant back to the room, John suddenly said, “Hey, would you like a massage?’”

Gotterba said he’d expected the invitation, and the massage quickly led to sex.

“John was gentle but very passionate. The next day he told me with a big smile on his face, ‘I really enjoyed last night,’” Gotterba told the Enquirer.

You need to read the full story because there’s a LOT more, and it’s a doozy. Do I think most of it happened? Yup, sure do. Do I think this confidentiality agreement will be overturned? I don’t know, but part of me hopes not. I understand that John’s level of gayness and his inability to not be a weirdo about it (we all remember the masseuses) is ridiculous, but I also don’t think ANYONE should ever be pressured or forced to come out when they’re uncomfortable doing so, which this dude clearly is. It’s a shame he can’t embrace who he truly is, but that’s not really anyone else’s decision to make – or live with – but his.

Oh, and here’s John and Douglas together back in the ’80s:

John Travolta F*cked Up Idina Menzel’s Name – “Let It Go”

travolta

John Travolta has been getting all types of shit since fucking up Idina Menzel‘s name during Sunday night’s Oscars. However, let’s be fair here – he didn’t mess up her name, really. HE CREATED AN ENTIRELY NEW ONE. Adele Dazeem is not anything like Idina Menzel, but he went there, and Xenu bless him for it.

The flub has sprouted tons of jokes online, and a name generator, as well. How would John Travolta have pronounced your name? Mine was Joss Smoith. I LOVE IT! In fact, I think I’ve found myself a new pen name…

In any case, John just doesn’t think all this laughing at his expense is very funny anymore, and he’s had his publicist release a statement on his behalf:

“I’ve been beating myself up all day. Then I thought…what would Idina Menzel say She’d say, Let it go, let it go! Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy Frozen took home two Oscars Sunday night!”

I love that the entire purpose of this statement was basically to prove that he does actually know what Idina’s name is and how to spell it. Also, nice pun with the whole ‘Let It Go’/Frozen thing. But I’m still not impressed. Say it five times fast, Travolta!

Kelly Preston On John Travolta: “He’ll destroy me if I leave him!”

The National Enquirer is more invested in John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s marriage than John Travolta and Kelly Preston AND I LOVE THEM FOR IT. No one cares more about “Kelly’s woes” than the fine people at the NE. Here’s the latest in what they’re saying Ms. Preston allegedly said about her totally straight husband:

“While John is desperate to keep up the facade of a happy family, Kelly can’t take the lies anymore.

“She gamely played along when John dragged her and their little boy Benjamin to Australia in early April. But she totally lost it a few days later during a vacation in Hawaii.

“Kelly was talking to a friend on the phone about her issues with John when she broke the news that a divorce is probably imminent.

“But then Kelly’s friend scared the life out of her by suggesting that if John gets angry enough over her leaving him, he could try to get custody of Benjamin and their daughter Ella Bleu.

“Kelly burst into tears, col­lapsed into a chair and started wailing, ‘I can’t take this! He’ll destroy me if I leave him! My life is over!’ Kelly moaned about not knowing how she’d carry on if her kids were taken away.”

Damn, John. Guess she’s not…hopelessly devoted to you. (YEEEEAAAHHH!!!)

It goes on:

“Kelly’s life has revolved around John and the kids for years,” said the source. “And she’s faced one embarrassment after another over John’s alleged gay hook-ups with men. It’s absolutely humiliating for Kelly. [Note: I don't think you have to add "with men" if you're saying "gay hook-ups." You can just say manager gay.]

“But John’s a bully and he’s  made it clear to Kelly that if she files divorce papers, he’ll unleash the full wrath of his high-powered legal team on her.

“Kelly is already suffering from insomnia. She barely sleeps four hours a night, and sometimes she’s so down that she forgets to eat.

“She’s dropped a lot of weight, and some days Kelly can’t even motivate herself to leave the house. It’s a very sad situation.”

FREE KELLY PRESTON! Can’t we distract Travolta with Oprah or something? Tell him Oprah wants to meet him in Australia to talk about a brand new movie/album/airline/whatever the hell John Travolta does now, and while he’s gone, get her the hell out of there? Yeah, it’s not going to solve the divorce settlement stuff, but I’m more worried for her about the wrath of John’s “friends.” Just ask David Miscavige’s wife. Oh, wait…you can’t. I’VE SAID TOO MUCH.
