John Travolta has made his first public appearance since claims regarding the star’s sexuality were made. More than one man has claimed in recent weeks to have had sex with the actor.
At least two male hotel massage attendants have stepped forward to say that they were sexually assaulted by the actor. A male pilot has come forward claiming that he had an ongoing affair with Travolta during the early-to-mid ’80s. Travolta, best known for his role in Saturday Night Fever, has kept a low profile since the allegations were made.
Travolta is a Hollywood A-lister and was a leading man in many American films during the late ’70s, the ’80s, and the ’90s. He was the star of films such as Grease, the Look Who’s Talking film trilogy, Get Shorty, Phenomenon, and Face/Off. He is marred to actress Kelly Preston, with whom he has had three children. Travolta’s son, Jett, was autistic and suffered regularly from seizures. Jett died, at the age of 16, while the family was vacationing in the Bahamas.
The star stepped out yesterday for the first time since the allegations emerged. Travolta was at an American Film Institute event to deliver a Lifetime Achievement Award to actress Shirley McClaine.
