John Travolta’s legal team is firing back at allegations being made by a former Royal Caribbean employee who claims the actor placed “his erect penis” on his person.
Fabian Zanzi filed a lawsuit on Thursday in California claiming he was sexually assaulted and battered by Travolta, but Marty Singer is slamming the allegations in a statement to RumorFix.
This is another ludicrous lawsuit with inane claims. It is obvious that Mr. Zanzi and his lawyers are looking for their 15 minutes of fame.
The lawsuit’s ridiculous claims are completely contradicted by what Mr. Zanzi told his employer back in 2009 when he was being disciplined for his own violations of company policy. In his handwritten report three years ago, the only physical contact he claimed occurred was allegedly touching my client’s neck. The inappropriate conduct he alleges in his lawsuit is absent from his written report he submitted at the time. That glaring omission speaks volumes. Also calling his credibility into question is his dubious allegation that his employer supposedly restrained him in a room on the cruise ship for five days, yet after that supposedly occurred, Mr. Zanzi continued to work for Royal Caribbean for years, on multiple ships. Now, after waiting three years, and after getting paid to tell his story to the media, Mr. Zanzi has filed this absurd lawsuit.
We are confident that my client will prevail on the merits and that he will be completely vindicated in court.
Zanzi says he notified three supervisors following the incident, but was told not to detail the alleged sexual misconduct in a written complaint.
