Judge rejects defamation lawsuit against John Travolta

  • A judge has thrown out a defamation case against John Travolta, filed by a man who wrote a book claiming he had sexual encounters with the actor.

    Robert Randolph published You'll Never Spa in This Town Again in February 2012.

    He claimed the actor and his lawyer had spread false statements about his mental health in 2010 in a bid to hamper sales of his upcoming book.

    The book was published three months before two unidentified male masseurs filed sexual assault lawsuits against Travolta, the star of Grease and Saturday Night Fever.

    Both dropped their lawsuits in May over the authenticity of their allegations.

    Travolta, 58, has been married to actress Kelly Preston since 1991.
