He’s hitting back!
Just days after John Travolta slammed Doug Gotterba’s affair claims, the former pilot has spoken out against the star as the court case rages on.
All a bit awks.
Earlier in the week the A-lister claimed that his one-time employee was ‘lying’ about a six-year sexual affair for monetary reasons.
But Gotterba reckons that the court case has nothing to do with money, telling MailOnline that he’s suing the Pulp Fiction star because he wants ‘the truth’ to come out.
He said: “What John Travolta said about me in a recent interview is an inaccurate description of what our court case is about.
“Our dispute is purely about declaratory relief and will be a non-monetary judgement. This is about the truth and my right for a court to decide who is telling the truth, not for Mr Travolta to make a judgement.”
Yeah he does NOT sound happy.
Travolta FINALLY addressed those pesky gay sex rumours earlier this week, speaking out on the VERY AWKS situation for the first time.
Things got very, very weird earlier this year when Gotterba claimed that the pair had been engaged in an intimate relationship back in the 1980s.
The pair are currently embroiled in a lengthy court battle, with Travolta trying to gag Gotterba after he announced plans to release a tell-all book about the ‘fling.’
Speaking on the subject for the first time ever, the star told The Daily Beast:
“This is every celebrity’s Achilles heel. It’s just about people wanting money. That’s all. It happens on many levels.”
He added: “Also, I don’t care that much about it.
“Other people may attack it back more than I do, but I let all the media stuff go a long time ago because I can’t control it.
“I think that’s why it persists, to some degree.”
Hmm – we reckon that things are about to kick off BIG TIME.
