John Travolta apparently has some very specific demands when it comes to his away-from-home accommodations.
According to the New York Post, "The People v. O.J. Simpson" star reportedly requires that no one be in his room for 24 hours before his arrival as to avoid any lingering scents left behind from people, as to adhere to requirements of his Scientologist religion.
Founder L. Ron Hubbard developed a strong personal aversion to rose perfume, so he rejected all scents and told his followers to do so, as well.
The actor also requires hotel staff to put up aluminum foil and dark curtains to black out the windows, so no one can see in, the source told the Page Six gossip section of the newspaper.
Additionally, the source said that John's rider reportedly includes a need for "a male masseur," something that is sure to raise a few eyebrows.
In 2012, two unnamed masseuses sued John for what they claimed was sexual misconduct. They sued under the name "John Doe."
A third masseur, Fabian Zanzi, later sued.
All three accusers eventually dropped their cases.
A recent National Enquirer report also linked the actor to another male massage therapist that he apparently uses.
John and his team have long denied the claims the he did anything inappropriate with any masseur.
Speaking about the third masseur, John's attorney said the claims were "ridiculous," saying, it was "just another claim by someone hopping on the bandwagon to get his 15 minutes of fame with a story about something that supposedly happened."
Previously John noted his celebrity status as the sole reason for the lawsuits.
"This is every celebrity's Achilles heel. It's just about people wanting money," he told The Hollywood Reporter in 2014. "That's all. It happens on many levels."
In the same interview he addressed long-persisting rumors that he is gay, saying he doesn't care about them.
"Other people may attack it back more than I do, but I let all the media stuff go a long time ago because I can't control it," he explains. "I think that's why it persists, to some degree."
John prefers to focus on his acting and his controversial religion, something that he says helped him get through the death of his son Jett in 2009.
"After my loss I had two years of full-time help from my church," he said in 2015. "They never left my side, and I got through a time that I didn't think I was going to make it. I really didn't, several times, but they pulled me through. So that's where my basic strength for moving on came from."
