John Travolta Sues his Ex Pilot Doug Gotterba, Who Sued Him

If we were John Travolta, we'd get pretty darn tired of everyone saying we'd bummed them, and trying to sue us left right and centre. Imagine, you're just down the shops or trying to get a nice massage and then BOOM, you get a text off your lawyer all like "HEY :) YR BEIN SUED AGEN JOHN LMFAO!" 

The latest suer is John's ex pilot Doug Gotterba. If you know your John Travolta gay accusation history, you'll know that John Travolta's ex-secretary went to the National Enquirer back in June to speak out about how Doug and John had a 6 year relationship, which ended because John got all fat and smelly. Harsh.

Anyway, as you can imagine, Travolta sicced his lawyer on Gotterba for talking about the alleged affair. Gotterba's having none of that, though, he's doing a big sue at Travolta,  based on the fact that he never signed a gagging (teehee!) order.

But what does Travolta's amusingly named lawyer Marty Singer say about all this kerfuffle? Well, according to TMZ, he's not convinced Gotterba has a case at all:

"Mr. Gotterba obviously filed this lawsuit to get his 15 minutes of fame. We plan to get this meritless case promptly dismissed."

In fact, Singer also told TMZ that the paperwork submitted by Gotterba included the apparently non-existent confidentiality agreement. Awkward!

In other John Travolta-related news, he used the power of Scientology to save the life of a car crash victim! Well done John! He told Scientology's own internal celebrity magazine, Celebrity Magazine:

"He had broken his ankle and was in constant pain. I asked him permission to do some Scientology assists and he said, ‘Okay sure’.

"People were standing around watching as I did them. You could actually see him confronting the pain and after a while he looked up at me and said ‘I feel better'

"He had gotten noticeably better."

OK, we need to address two things here. Firstly, a man saying "yeah I feel better" after you've manhandled them a bit and everyone is staring, is not conclusive proof of the effectiveness of your weird cult hokum. Secondly, we love that Scientology's celebrity magazine is called Celebrity Magazine. We're thinking of rebranding Holy Moly as Celebrity Internet Site. Any thoughts, anyone?
