John Travolta's Former Employee Wins In Court

An Appeals Court judge yesterday ruled that a former pilot who worked for John Travolta is allowed to bring a case to trial to determine whether his termination agreement with Travolta had a confidentiality agreement. Douglas Gotterba says the agreement he signed does not and that the agreement used by Travolta's attorney is a draft of one that was never signed. Travolta's attorney had tried to even keep the guy from trying to bring his case but the judge said that idea is crap and that the guy can go to trial. Gotterba had always remained silent about his time working for Travolta and their extra special time that was not working. However, a former employee outed the situation and now Gotterba would like to publish a book detailing everything that went on while working for Travolta. It is going to take a mighty big check for him not to tell all if he wins. That is the thing though. All he has done now is win the right to go to trial. He still has not shown that he is not bound by an agreement. Gotterba worked for Travolta for six years back in the 80's.

Ray Nicolet said...

Its decent money when it actually arrives.

LottaColada said...

I think I missed the gang

Topper Madison said...

I don't care about this guy's story. I just want to know why he waited 30 years to decide to try to tell it?

Count Jerkula said...

10-1 Travolta banged Horschack

5-1 Travolta got turned by Mr. Woodman

Is this the guy that's in the photo with Travolta, kissing on the steps up to an airplane?

Frufra said...

I just want to read the book. I love me a good celebrity tell-all. I just ordered The Million Dollar Mermaid, Esther Williams' autobiography. It's supposed to have excellent Old Hollywood dish. Write, pilot guy, write!!

Frufra said...

@ Count - do you see Mr. Kotter involved in this scenario at all? Just curious.

figgy said...

This guy would be doing John a favor, methinks. Maybe if the truth came out in a very public way, it would make John feel free to be his real self...?

I am ashamed to say I would read that book in about 1 minute.

Wait, that's right, this is one group with whom I need NOT feel shame for my love of salacious celeb gossip.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Ray, Talent deserves Pay. No shame in that game..: D

Virginia Squatch said...

@Jerkula it makes me feel so weird that I know who Woodman is

MeanieRhysie said...

Impressive display of solidarity, eh?

Count Jerkula said...

Nah, if anything, Kotter went for Epstien, because he pined for the kid w/ a better Jewfro than him.

Ray Nicolet said...

The bonus program is what makes it all worthwhile

Frufra said...

I'd forgotten about Epstein! I had a crush on him when I was a kid.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Look guys, I get the alt thing, I Do. Freedom, bigger,badder, no longer bound by convention. I don't agree with the nasty aspect. That's Dick. But, it's a new character adding life to a scene, I GET IT!
Ray,Robin Sparkles was the shit. I miss her...
I LIKED ethorne's Amanda's wig.
I thought Mrs.Crabapple was Hilarious, Rhysie. (anonymouse...not fully realized but I think I saw where you were going with it)
I also haven't been victimized.
I don't agree that you should all be smeared with "evil" paint.
Each of you are only responsible for your own actions but ACTION too long delayed has left you without the high ground.

Count Jerkula said...

@Virginia Squatch: I always confused the names of Woodman and Bookman when I was a kid.

@Fru: You liked the tight jeans w/ the hanky hanging out of his ass pocket, huh?

Frufra said...

@CJ - First off, I'm from San Antonio. So momma likee a Hispanic man. (But I married a super-duper white guy; isn't that always the way?) Plus, I was always a sucker for curly hair.

auntliddy said...

Wouldnt it be funny if his book is full of hetero hookups, hot chicks, sex drugs and rock and l?!! Lol

Gayeld said...

More like shocking.

Renoblondee said...

It reappeared!

Basil said...

I would soooo read this book. But it ain't gonna happen. Pilot either gets paid off, or pilot has accident.

ethorne said...

Gang bang

LottaColada said...

Heh?

surfer said...

Whoa, that's epic!

FSP said...

Seven of Eleven said...

Truth, @Basil. $cio has a way of making things happen. You know, Operation Snow White.

Gayeld said...

I'm sure he'll enjoy knitting doilies with Shelly and Rena (Weinberg.)

MeanieRhysie said...

So.Fucking.Epic!

Brenda L said...

I'm ready for that book!!!

teresa crane said...

I will buy this the day it comes out!

califblondy said...

I'd buy it. I hope it gives JT the push he needs to come out and quit the church too.

Brian said...

He's going to end up sharing a room with Shelly Miscavige...

Lola Heatherton said...

He'll get paid off or be dead by the end of the year.

Nothanksdarlin said...

Am I not getting a check because I'm always late?

astrogirl said...

Yeah he might want to give up flying his own plane around

Princess C. Bananahammock said...

I don't even go here
