John Travolta had six-year affair with me, says male pilot

Hollywood actor John Travolta is continuing to face accusations that he’s been having sexual relationships with men, this time from a 62-year-old Californian pilot.

Douglas Gotterba said he first met the Grease icon in February 1981 when he was interviewed for a pilot job with the star – and by September they were lovers.

“I know the date because I still have the log book and records,” Gotterba told America’s National Enquirer in an exclusive interview.

Gotterba said he and Travolta flew to Monterey in California 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 has also claimed that the married movie star had admitted in 1992 that he was still attracted to men – months after he had tied the knot with actress Kelly Preston.

“We were making small talk when suddenly, I blurted out, ‘So, John, tell me. Now that you’re married, do you still prefer men – or women?’” Gotterba said Travolta replied. “Well, Doug, I still prefer men”.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Travolta quickly moved to dismiss the claims made in the Enquirer, saying:

“This ridiculous so-called ‘new’ story is a retread of a story published a few weeks ago by the same desperate supermarket tabloid – the same tabloid that impossibly claimed that John Travolta had an encounter with ‘Doe #1’ in Beverly Hills when he was actually on the east coast working on a movie”.

The Enquirer story follows three months after two anonymous masseurs – John Does 1 and 2 – filed and later dropped federal lawsuits claiming the star groped them during massages.
