The last few months have not been good to John Travolta. Every time he turns around another supposed conquest pops up with a story to sell to the tabloids. This week, John Travolta’s lover, Doug Gotterba, has come out of the shadows and is telling of a six year love affair with the married actor. Gotterba says that he first met John back in 1981 while interviewing for a pilot job and things took a very personal turn quickly. The newest issue of The National Enquirer has the full scoop.
“We flew into Monterey, Calif., and went up to the Highlands resort in Carmel,” Gotterba says. “We had a wonderful dinner with a fantastic bottle of merlot, and I got the sense I was being courted. “As we walked from the restaurant back to the room, John suddenly said, ‘Hey, would you like a massage?’ “I’d already prepared myself for something like that, so I said, ‘Sure, why not? I went back to his room, showered and came out wearing only a towel. John said, ‘Okay, like down here on the bed.’ He gave me a massage – and it turned into something else! “John was gentle, but very passionate. The next day, he told me with a big smile on his face, ‘I really enjoyed last night.’ And I told him, ‘So did I!”
Their sexual affair continued for years until John eventually went on to marry Kelly Preston. Gotterba says that the last time he saw John was in 1992 and at the time he drummed up the courage to ask about his sex life.
“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?’ He looked me straight in the eye and said, ‘Well, Doug, I still prefer men!’ I said, ‘okay.’ And that’s the last time we saw each other.”
If Gotterba’s story is true then it echoes a bit of what all the other guys have accused John of, so maybe all of the claims are in fact true. How do you think his wife Kelly handles all of the accusations about her husband? Do you think she has been his beard for all of these years or does she believe that everyone else is an opportunistic liar and that John is a straight man?
