We were hoping it had gone away, but John Travolta’s Gropegate lives on: The latest claim is that he once tried to perform a sex act on his Grease co-star, Jeff Conaway. Conaway’s former fiancée tells the National Enquirer that Conaway was asleep at home in the 1990s, and woke up to Travolta giving him oral sex, the New York Post reports. The incident ended their long friendship, she claims. (The incident also spurred the Post to use the regrettable line, “John Travolta just couldn’t resist a quickie with Kenickie.”)
The ex is apparently on a tabloid tour, because she also reportedly told Star that Travolta’s wife Kelly Preston knows he’s gay, and another source claims Preston signed a contract when they entered into their sham marriage. More recent developments:
- Yet another massage therapist tells the Enquirer he had sex with Travolta in 1997 after a massage at the Ritz-Carlton, and that the actor is "experienced" at sex with men.
- And accuser No. 4 emerges, a gym employee who claims Travolta "groped and fondled him against his will," a source tells Radar.
- Meanwhile, accuser No. 1 may have been dropped by his first attorney, but he’s now hired Attorney to the (People Accusing) Stars (of Stuff) Gloria Allred, People reports.
