In 2000 a 21-year-old masseur filed a criminal complaint accusing John Travolta of sexual battery at the LaQuinta Hotel in Palm Springs in which the Hollywood actor allegedly asked the young man -- among other nasty things -- if he'd "ever had his a**hole licked by another man" as reported by the Daily Mail: "Officer Mark Peters went to the hotel to speak with Travolta, who had already checked out by the time he arrived," and "the case was later 'closed unfounded' and Peters advised the man to 'speak with a civil attorney.'"
John Travolta plays John Gotti in the biopic Gotti which is slated to hit theaters this December, and his choice to play the late Gambino crime boss has been controversial given accusations that the thesbian made untoward advances against male masseurs. In 2012 Gotti's widow Victoria stood by Travolota as her man as reported by the Daily News:
"What difference does it make if he were gay?" Victoria Gotti told the Daily News in an expletive-filled defense of the actor[.] "Who the f--k really cares? Does it make him less of a beautiful human being? No. . . . Leave him the f--k alone. Whatever the true story is, leave him with his dignity," she added. "In the grand scheme of things, it really does not matter."
Even before the recent allegations against John Travolta not everyone thought he was the best choice to play the Dapper Don. Lewis Kasman, a once trusted confidant of the Gambino boss, says "for John Gotti Sr., you need a man's man to play that role" as previously reported by Bruce Golding for the New York Post "'John Gotti Sr. never danced a dance in his life,' he said, taking a jab at the 'Saturday Night Fever' hoofer Travolta." Apparently, tough guys don't dance. Or rim.
