Phone won't stop ringing with John Travolta gay sex tales - Now we know what he meant when he use to say - Up your nose with a rubber hose!
The lawyer for an Atlanta masseur suing John Travolta for sexual assault says his phone is ringing off the hook with other potential plaintiffs — but he’s not returning calls.
Okorie Okorocha, representing the man known only as John Doe No. 2, said Saturday that a mixup over a date in the lawsuit filed by John Doe No. 1 had left him a little gun-shy.
“I’ve heard from a bazillion people, but I haven’t called them back,” Okorocha told the Daily News. “I’m really sketchy about talking to people.
I’m just laying low with potential clients.”
Okorocha has said more than 100 men contacted him with tales about Travolta’s horny hijinks.
The California lawyer is down to one client in the Travolta case after parting company with John Doe No. 1, who alleged in court papers that the Hollywood hunk groped him on Jan. 16.
Travolta’s camp quickly produced alibi evidence showing the actor was in New York, not California, on that date. Okorocha told the plaintiff to find a new lawyer once the discrepancy became public.
Okorocha spoke after The News reported that a former employee at the ritzy Peninsula Hotel said Travolta was blacklisted there for his inappropriate behavior with its masseurs.
“He’s probably one of the few people who would talk about it,” the attorney said.
The two John Does and a third man, cruise ship worker Fabian Zanzi, emerged in the last week to accuse the “Pulp Fiction” star of massage misbehavior.
Former Peninsula masseur Michael Caputo said he spoke out about Travolta’s inappropriate acts to support his fellow licensed massage therapists.
Marty Singer, lawyer for the two-time Oscar nominee, has ridiculed all the charges and dismissed Caputo as a “disgruntled employee” of the tony rooftop spa.
The tales of the masseurs and the cruise ship worker were also bogus, Singer said.
Okorocha said he wasn’t bothered by reports about his own past, including his role in a failed attempt to peddle a sex tape involving Verne (Mini-Me) Troyer.
“Nobody wants a lawyer who’s nice,” he said. “Nobody wants a rich, fat lawyer. I don’t want to be called nice.”
