More Male Masseurs Coming Forward To Accuse John Travolta Of Sexual Advances
It seems that more and more men are speaking of actor John Travolta alleged inappropriate sexual advances. So far two unknown men have come forward with the claims seeking $2 million compensation. A third man, cruise ship worker Fabian Zanzi, has said that Travolta offered him money for sex while on a cruise in the Caribbean. A source also told The New York Daily News that there was another incident with Travolta and a masseur five years ago at an Arizona resort that was smoothed over by the star’s publicist. The allegations against Travolta by the first man have been questioned however after it was proven that Travolta in New York at the time that the mystery man claimed that the incident happened in LA. The man is now saying he got the dates wrong but also released a strange statement saying: ‘Even though Mr Travolta and his counsel are on opposing sides in this matter, I do wish them good health, happiness, and want them to be judged with absolute fairness as our great nation affords all citizens regardless of their wealth or station.’
A book released in 2010 also accused Travolta of being a spa sex pest. You’ll Never Spa in This Town Again dishes the dirt on the secret world of celebrity ‘gay spa sex.’ Author Robert Randolph says that John ‘makes Tiger Woods look like a boy scout.’
‘I met John in 1998, after he’d married Kelly,’ Robert told the Enquirer. ‘I believe the marriage is a total fraud because John is into guys and has been having sex with them behind Kelly’s back for years,’ he said. ‘He came on to me a number of times. I always turned him down. But there was always some guy who was willing to have sex with him. And John didn’t stop cheating on Kelly after either of their children was born.’
Now a former staff member at the five-star Peninsula Hotel on Fifth Avenue has said that the actor was banned for about three years for ‘inappropriate behaviour.’ It was claimed that  male staffers complained about Travolta removing his towel, grinding against the massage table and lifting his butt in the air. ‘Travolta would always request a man for his massage, but after a while no one would take him because of his inappropriate behavior,’ Michael Caputo, a former masseuse at the hotel said. ‘It got to the point where they couldn’t find any men to take him, and they had to ban him,’ recalled the masseur who said he worked at the Peninsula from 1992-2008.
Meanwhile John’s wife Kelly Preston has given an interview saying she used to smoke, drink and do drugs but she opted to change her ways for the sake of the couple’s family. ‘I’m so different, now I don’t drink anymore. I don’t smoke anymore. I don’t do drugs anymore. All of those come with an “anymore.” I used to do everything and a lot of everything. With drinking, I just decided that I wasn’t always at my best. There were times where I drank too much, for sure,’ she said. While the interview with Amanda de Cadenet was filmed a couple of months ago, the release of it is interesting timing. Despite her confession, we don’t think it will do much to deflect from the accusations about her hubby!

Johnny Angry At Split Rumours
Johnny Depp shot down the rumours of his split from long-term girlfriend Vanessa Paradis at the premiere of his new movie Dark Shadows in London. The actor told The Sun that  ‘the rumours are not true, they are absolutely not true.’ The actor was said to be seething when asked if he had indeed split from the mother of his two children Vanessa saying: ‘no way!’. He went on to say ‘no matter what I say about this, people believe the opposite. I can’t say enough about it not being over. The rumours are not true, they are absolutely not true,’ he said. This supports what Vanessa said about the split in January: ‘It’s false — this rumour could cause a lot of harm to my family and my children.’ Despite this she hasn’t done much else to play down speculation about their relationship saying recently in an interview with Stylist magazine : ‘I have a problem with the term soul mates, it scares me a lot. It’s such a strong statement… it’s like a marriage contract. I believe in love, and I really want to believe that it lasts forever. But like everyone else, I have to take things a day at a time and you can never know what comes next. All you can do is hope, love and live.’ She was also notably absent from Johnny side at Dark Shadows as he was at the premiere of her movie Cafe de Flore in January.

Jennifer’s Family Finally Get Justice As Murderer Convicted
Actress and singer Jennifer Hudson has finally seen justice for her late mother, brother and seven-year-old nephew after her former brother-in-law William Balfour was found guilty of their murders. Balfour now faces life in jail after the conviction. It is thought that he flew into a jealous rage in 2008 after his ex, Julia Hudson, Jennifer’s sister, was send a balloon gift from her new boyfriend. Hudson broke down in tears when she testified in the trial last month, telling the court of Balfour, ‘We did not like how he treated [Julia], and I didn’t like how he treated my nephew.’ The couple were estranged at the time of the crime. Jennifer and her sister Julia said in a statement: ‘It is our prayer that the Lord will forgive Mr. Balfour of these heinous acts and bring his heart into repentance someday.’

reese witherspoonReese In Family Court Drama
Reese Witherspoon was in court last week to testify in the a bitter battle between her parents. Her mother Betty is accusing her father John of bigamy while being of diminished responsibility due to dementia. Betty filed the court papers against her husband of 42 years after he wed Tricianne Taylor in January and is seeking an annulment of his recent marriage and  a restraining order against Taylor barring her from using the last name Witherspoon for any purpose. While the hearing is closed to the public, Betty said in the petition: ‘No person in Tennessee can marry another while being married at the same time of the second marriage.’ The judge presiding over the case usually deals with cases  involving conservatorship and determining mental capacity and Betty claims in the petition that John, 70, has suffered a number of personal problems including alcohol abuse, hoarding, compulsive spending and recently lost his medical practice. It is believed that Reese and her brother who also attended the court asked the judge to place their father under conservatorship but the pregnant actress has released no statement regarding the case.

Ben Praises Wife For Mother’s Day
Ben Affleck has honoured his wife Jennifer Garner this weekend for Mother’s Day in America. He posted a heartfelt video on YouTube honouring his own mum Chris Affleck and his wife Jen, the mother of his two daughters Violet, six, and Seraphina, three, and his son Samuel, three-months. ‘I just want to say Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms in my life,” he said in the video. ‘My mom, Chris, and my amazing wife, Jennifer, who is an incredible, spectacular, world-class mom, and I want to thank her.’ He didn’t stop there however. He also used the opportunity to highlight the plight of mums in the Congo where he and his own mother went recently for his charity, the Eastern Congo Initiative, a charity that helps raise awareness and support for mums in the Eastern Congo to improve their lives and communities. ‘I want to say thank you to all the moms I’ve met in the Democratic Republic of Congo who are on this video. I urge you to share it . . . to celebrate all the moms in the world working at the very hardest job there is every single day.’ If only all guys were as vocal about the mums in their lives.

Guess Who – Secret Gossip
[BlindGossip] There have been many false reports about this actress in the past… but this time she really is pregnant!
She is not married to her Significant Other – and we are assuming that he is the baby’s father – so the couple will need to make a decision in the next few weeks. Since she is over the age of 30 and loves children, her friends believe that she will opt to keep the baby. We have heard that her S.O. is not especially eager to get married, so she may be going the single-parent route for now.
She is only approximately five weeks along, so there is nothing to see yet. But, with summer right around the corner, it will be difficult our actress to cover up the pregnancy once she does start showing. Given how slim she is, we expect that you’ll start to see a bump sooner rather than later, perhaps as early as the middle of June. Oh, and although it is too early to know the gender of the baby either, we predict that the couple will opt for a European-sounding name.
