John Travolta's First Accuser Drops Lawsuit

Wonderwall, Tuesday, May 15, 2012, 11:27am (PDT)
  • After a whirlwind of a week, John Travolta's first accuser -- known simply as John Doe for privacy reasons -- has dropped his sexual assault lawsuit against the actor.

    This dismissal comes on the heels of evidence that contradicted the date John Doe gave for the alleged incident. John Doe claimed Travolta made sexual advances during a massage appointment at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Jan. 16.

    Travolta's lawyer later provided a photo that indicated Travolta was at the Greenwich Hotel in New York and enjoying meals at Mr. Chow that evening. John Doe's former lawyer, Okorie Okorocha, claimed that Travolta could have traveled there in time.

    Okorocha explained the case dismissal to People.com: "Let's just say we had differences in opinion of how to handle the case and decided to part ways."

    Despite Tuesday's dismissal of the first case in the U.S. District Court, a second John Doe is still suing John Travolta for $2 million, but his lawyer said on May 14 that he's willing to settle the case for $250,000.

    The second John Doe alleges that he, too, had an inappropriate encounter while giving the actor a massage at an Atlanta hotel.

    Okorocha, who formerly represented the first John Doe and still represents the second one, believes other men may come forward.

    Okorcha said, "There's a bunch of accusers against Travolta who have similar accusations. Many have contacted me, and I'm still vetting their stories. More defendants might come forward soon."

    Through his lawyer, Martin Singer, John Travolta has denied all of these claims.
