John Doe #2, aka the second male masseur filing allegations against John Travolta, will reportedly NOT go to trial but instead will be heard by a private judge and settled behind closed doors. Behind close doors? Just the way Travolta likes his massages! Heyo!
A source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com that they are not going to court in order to keep the masseuses identity a secret and also to avoid the media frenzy that would undoubtedly ensue.
"Marty Singer, and Okorie Okorocha have spoken and both are working on the ground rules for the evidence and procedure about how the mediation will proceed, and that process could take 1-2 months," a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com.
"This is commonly done before formal mediation begins. Both sides will agree to keep all transcripts sealed, as well as all witness statements, depositions, etc. The lawsuit will be heard by a private judge, who will decide how much money if any the accuser will receive. All of the proceedings will be strictly confidential, but make no mistake, this will be a dog fight, that will take place out of the public forum. This is done for a plethora of reasons, mainly, this will allow the masseur's identity from being made public, and it would just be a media circus if it did go to trial This will be the best way for the case to be heard with minimal disruption to John Travolta and the masseur's life."
This is all getting very suspicious. The first accuser has dropped his lawsuit after admitting he was wrong about the date of the alleged incident. The lawyer representing these men, Okorie Okorocha, dropped John Doe #1 as a client and told him to find a new lawyer.

A third accuser hit the U.S. news radar on Thursday after telling his story on a Chilean news program a full two weeks before the first accuser's claim. This third masseur works on the Royal Caribbean cruise line and alleged that in 2009 Travolta offered to pay him $12,000 if he would have sex with him and the masseur said no!
