Media sources reveal that actor John Travolta had a six-year fling with his former pilot Doug Gotterba.
Travolta’s ex-secretary Joan Edwards claims that she became aware of this relationship while she worked for the actor.
"That's how I met Doug. We both worked for John at the same time. Doug is a wonderful guy and we are still good friends. He told me that John was gay and they had a sexual relationship," Edwards said.
Gotterba’s ex-boyfriend also reported that the pilot was very open about his fling with Travolta during their relationship.
“Doug said John was constantly grabbing at his genital area, but he put up with John's sexual advances because working for him was 'lucrative,’ ” Gotterba’s ex-boyfriend said.
Gotterba has not acknowledged the romantic relationship with Travolta. However, he did admit that he worked for him during the 1980s.
Gotterba’s ex-boyfriend says that the relationship between Travolta and the pilot ended when Gotterba could no longer put up with the actor’s body odor and weight gain.
“John became very heavy between movies. Doug recalled him 'huge’ and said it turned him off,” Gotterba’s ex-boyfriend said.
Travolta is currently being sued for making unsolicited sexual advances to two male massage therapists.
