John Travolta Case: First Accuser Drops Lawsuit

John Travolta has one less accuser to worry about. The masseur known only as John Doe Number One, whose claims of sexual assault during a massage session set off a firestorm for the actor, has dropped out of the lawsuit amid mounting evidence apparently contradicting his allegations.

“Let’s just say we had differences in opinion of how to handle the case and decided to part ways,” his lawyer Okorie Okorocha tells PEOPLE.  The notice of dismissal was filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.

A second masseur remains on the lawsuit, seeking $2 million from Travolta over the star’s alleged behavior during a massage session at an Atlanta-based resort.

Travolta’s lawyer Marty Singer has strongly denied the allegations from both accusers, calling the claims “absurd” and “fiction.”: ”We’ll disprove [Doe Number Two's claims], but we need specifics first,” Singer tells PEOPLE. “It’s hard to disprove something when you don’t have more specific allegations.”

Now that Travolta has one less accuser, do you think the other 3 lawsuits will follow the same fate as the first? Or is it too soon to tell, lest a fifth accuser arises? Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions with us in the comment box below!

John Travolta Case: Second Anonymous Masseur Files Harassment Suit

A second masseur with allegations of sexual battery and harassment has been added to the lawsuit against John Travolta that was filed on Friday in California.

The second plaintiff, also represented by Pasadena, Calif., attorney Okorie Okorocha, has remained anonymous, and accuses Travolta, 58, of improper behavior during a massage session at an Atlanta-area resort, according to papers obtained and posted online by Radar.

In response to the new filing, Travolta’s lawyer, Marty Singer, told PEOPLE in a statement, “This second ‘anonymous’ claim is just as absurd and ridiculous as the first one. The attorney who filed the lawsuit on behalf of his second anonymous client, who does not want to disclose his name although he is required to do so, was notified that his first client’s claims were totally false and fabricated, since our client was not in L.A. when anonymous ‘Doe #1′ claims he interacted with John Travolta.”

The accusers’ attorney, Okorocha, tells PEOPLE: “The reason my clients are wishing to remain anonymous is because the public passes judgment on sexual harassment accusers and people who file lawsuits in general… As for evidence, I don’t want to show my cards at this time,” says Okorocha, who claims to have “so much evidence” to support the claims against Travolta, including witnesses and photos of the actor in Atlanta at the time of the alleged incident. The plaintiffs are seeking $2 million in damages each.

Now that a second accuser has come forward, do you think the allegations against John Travolta has some truth in it? Speculate with us in the comment box below!
