John Travolta’s alleged former lover ‘tried to settle lawsuit’ for $10 million

A man who claims to be John Travolta’s former lover has allegedly offered to settle legal action with the star – for $10 million.

The Grease star is currently embroiled in a legal battle with former employee Douglas Gotterba, who plans to write a tell-all book alleging that he had a six-year relationship with Travolta in the 1970s.

A court ruled in July that Mr Gotterba can’t be stopped from pursuing legal action for his right to speak about his claims.

Travolta claimed last week that the claims were ” just about people wanting money”, but Gotterba denied that was the case.

However, a representative for Travolta told the Daily Mail that despite his claim to be seeking a non-monetary judgement, Gotterba had asked for $10,000,000 (£6,138,170) to settle the case out of court.

Mr Gotterba had said previously: “What John Travolta said about me in a recent interview is an inaccurate description of what our court case is about.

“Our dispute is purely about declaratory relief and will be a non-monetary judgement. This is about the truth and my right for a court to decide who is telling the truth, not for Mr Travolta to make a judgement.”

Travolta’s lawyers allege that when former pilot Mr Gotterba was dismissed from Alto in 1991, he signed a contract which would prevent him from revealing personal information about his employer, but Gotterba claims he signed nothing that would stop him from doing so.
