If you don’t follow celebrity trash than you’ve probably missed the news of John Travolta’s recent legal woes.

Travolta has been accused of sexual harassing multiple masseurs. However, they’re not ladies taking Travolta to court. It’s a bunch of dudes.

It’s been reported that Travolta had allegedly asked one of the guys to perform a sex act during a massage in Beverly Hills and is now asking for $2 million for “inflicting emotional distress”. Travolta also apparently told the masseur that he got “where he was due to sexual favors”, and also added that,”Hollywood was controlled by homosexuals who expected favors”. Are we really surprised?

Meanwhile, another male masseur has come forward and claimed that Travolta grabbed him between the legs during a massage in Atlanta, GA. The second accuser is also asking for $2 million.

While Travolta seems to have an alibi, at least for the first case since he was in New York when the incident happened, this isn’t the first time that there have been rumors of the actor’s sexuality.

Gawker has done an excellent, and funny, piece entitled John Travolta: A Portrait of the Actor as the Sum of His Gay Rumors, which chronicles the actor’s rumored man-on-man-action throughout the years.

Here’s a rundown of the Gawker article.

Travolta has been denying gay rumors since 1983, with an interview in Rolling Stone in particular. In 1990, porn star Paul Barresi spills the beans on his relationship with the actor from 1983 to 1985. This was also the year that he marries actress, and Scientologist hottie, Kelly Preston following gay bath house rumors.

Then, in 2006, pictures surface of Travolta getting a little too affectionate with his male nanny Jeff Kathrein. Two years later he was outed by Princess Leia herself (Carrie Fisher), which was followed by more gay bath house rumors in 2010. Then, as if things couldn’t get any worse, there were reports that Travolta ditched Preston, after giving birth, to go hang out with some “pals” at a ski resort.

Of course, this is all hearsay, but it probably didn’t help that an actor who employed a male nanny and has been accused of being gay his entire career would also star in a movie where he dressed in drag.

If you don’t know what exactly we’re talking about, it’s Travolta’s role in 2007’s Harispray where he portrays Edna Turnblad.

Sure, a lot of actors may have portrayed a woman throughout the years, by Travolta seems to be really enjoying himself just a bit much.

So, what do you all think?

Is John Travolta gay or straight?
