Will John Travolta's Image Remain Intact?

Yahoo Contributor Network

John Travolta, most famous for his performances in "Saturday Night Fever" and "Pulp Fiction," is considered to be an excellent actor. He's set to play John Gotti Sr. in "Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father." However, despite the fact that the 58-year-old star has been married to actress Kelly Preston since 1991, and despite the fact that they have three children together, Ella, Benjamin and Jett (Jett died in 2009), the man who got his start in the 1970s TV series "Welcome Back, Kotter" has been hammered with gay rumors.

The latest are allegations of assault and sexual battery brought on by two male plaintiffs in a $2 million lawsuit. The actor's rep denies the claims. "This lawsuit is a complete fiction and fabrication. None of the events claimed in the suit ever occurred."

Rumors of homosexual activity have plagued Travolta long before this particular lawsuit. What are some of the top ones?

You'll Never Spa In This Town Again

Author Robert Randolph wrote a Hollywood tell-all, available at all the leading bookstores,that exposes not only John Travolta in alleged gay activity at a place known as City Spa, but other male celebrities as well. It's based on what Randolph claims he saw with his own eyes and what he claims masseurs told him, also. The book was written after the author was allegedly beaten on City Spa property and suffered brain damage, but was allegedly shown no remorse from City Spa, including having his membership revoked.

National Enquirer photo

Back in 2010, the National Enquirer published a photo of Travolta kissing a man as the man boarded a plane. Travolta's reps say the men were just friends, and it was a friendly kiss. So much for the handshake.

Carrie Fisher

Actress Carrie Fisher has long been a close friend of Travolta's, but in 2010, Fisher said, "Wow! I mean, my feeling about John has always been that we know and we don't care. Look, I'm sorry that he's uncomfortable with it, and that's all I can say."
