LONDON: A former male massage therapist at the Peninsula Hotel in Manhattan claimed against John Travolta, saying that the Pulp Fiction star was blacklisted for three years from the hotel’s spa for inappropriate behaviour.
Masseur Michael Caputo — the fourth man to make claims against Travolta — said that the 58-year-old always asked for a man for his massage at the hotel’s famous rooftop spa. Caputo, 55, said that male staffers complained that Travolta would grind against the massage table, remove the towel and lift his butt in the air during his therapy.
“Travolta would always request a man for his massage, but after a while no one would take him because of his inappropriate behaviour,” the Daily Mail quoted Caputo as saying.
“It got to the point where they couldn’t find any men to take him, and they had to ban him,” explained masseur Magic Mike.
Travolta’s attorney, Marty Singer, dismissed the allegation as nonsense, noting that his client was at the hotel’s famous rooftop spa recently. “He’s never been banned, I guarantee you... The hotel never told John he was banned, and John never acted improperly,” according to the New York Daily News.
