Further revelations about John Travolta’s homosexual past have been made public in the US, with allegations from his former secretary that he had a six-year relationship with pilot Doug Gotterba.
Joan Edwards, who worked for the ‘Grease’ star from 1978 to 1994 told the National Enquirer that not only was John definitely gay but that he had a sexual relationship with Doug. Travolta is currently facing two counts of sexual assault from male massage therapists who claim he made advances to both of them.
“I did everything for him, including taking care of his personal and professional schedules. Of course I knew he was gay. It never bothered me,” she revealed.
"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," she added.
The relationship with Travolta, who has denied all claims of assault and doubts over his sexuality was also confirmed by another former boyfriend of Gotterba’s Robert Britz who said he even saw a video made by the couple when they were together.
"Doug told me right at the beginning of our relationship that he'd had a homosexual relationship with John Travolta in the 1980s,“ he told the National Enquirer.
“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.’”
He went on: "I personally saw about two minutes of Doug's home video showing John Travolta sitting at the end of a bed with his shirt off.
“There were plates of food in front of him. The video appeared to be shot in a hotel room. Doug made it clear that it was very lucrative for him to be what he called John's 'personal right hand man' and homosexual partner.”
Gotterba was supposedly less than complimentary about the actor and said he had a “hairy body”.
"After a few years, Doug grew apart from John sexually, and John's advances eventually started to repulse him.”
"The relationship ended shortly thereafter." he added.
The relationship reportedly took place before Travolta married Kelly Preston in 1991.
The couple are said to be separated following the revelations about the actor’s personal life, though his legal team deny all of the allegations.
