John Travolta's Gay Lover Of Six Years Spills


I guess it is one thing if five or ten men come out of the woodwork and say that John Travolta wanted to or offered to or had sex with them, and quite another for a man to come out and discuss his six year relationship with John Travolta. Doug Gotterba is 62 and spoke to The Enquirer for their issue this week. He says that he had a long term relationship with Travolta who had wanted to make sex tapes (how much would those be worth right now?), loved having sex with multiple men at a time and could never get enough sex. He probably could never get enough sex because he was at home with the wife and kids all the time biding his time until he could break free and go crazy. Gotterba met Travolta in 1981 when he interviewed for a pilot job and the next thing you know they were lovers. It all started with Travolta offering a massage. Apparently massage is John's code word for sex. The last time the pair saw each other was in 1992. The Scientologists were on John's case and he had already married Kelly so he told Doug it was over.

It's a shame Travolta (or anyone, for that matter) has to sneak around and can't be himself bc of his crazy-ass religion.

libby said...

Yay! I knew someone he had actually dated would speak up one of these days.

Its sad that he has to hide what he really is, but John - its OK to be gay. Quit the 'church' and come out.

libby said...

Can you imagine how good he'd feel, for his remaining years, if he were finally free of the secrets & pressure?

Honeykatt said...

I think if he just came out and was bare bones honest about all the factors that led him to stay down low and ashamed, he would garner so much support! I say, to hell with COS! Just be you, babe.

figgy said...

Exactly @Honeykatt! I think he would be astonished by the warm reception he would get from the public in general. His fans would love to hear about what he's been through... everyone loves a story of redemption and becoming honest about yourself. It would only help his career.

...and then once that's taken care of, on to facing up to the next inconvenient fact, this one much, much harder: John...I hate to say it, but...yer bald. As a billiard ball. Bald bald bald. A bald gay man. But that's okay! Embrace your badass bald gay self!

Silly Girl said...

Awesome, @figgy!!

Jamie 2 said...

It's not as though coming out now would ruin his chances of playing a hetero male lead in a romcom. He's way too old and ugly for that.

OTOH, he's kind of stuck. It's hard to say, "Oh - about my 20-year+ marriage? That was a sham. My bad." And then he has kids and KP to consider too.

Agent**it said...

OPRAH hello.

Cassiopeia said...

Who is he kissing in this pic?
The last time they saw each other was 20 years ago and that pic isn't 20 years old.
John and the guy in the pic look very comfortable and loving together. Who is he?

Princess said...

The only problem with him coming out and being "free" for the remainder of his life is... I truly thinks HE thinks he's not gay. One of his supposed lovers made a comment about how he denied he was gay, it was just something he does. I think he would need some therapy first to deal with his own denial, and just quitting the church wouldn't solve that problem, although he would be free to get therapy, it's no guarantee he would.

Barton Fink said...

I don't know what to make of Travolta. He is way past his prime, he seems like he could be a good(ish) person, and it's hard to have animosity toward him the way that many of us have animosity toward Cruise or Gibson or other wacky cult members who allow their crazy nonsense to get out of hand. Will Travolta ever be open about his sexuality? Is he perhaps bi? This is all so weird and depressing.

The Real Dragon said...

I hate when people out other people. Leave the brother alone. If he is gay than he is gay. he'll come out when he wants too. Stop forcing him.

gr8p said...

When you think about what all we've read about Travolta, it is really just sad. He's a closet homosexual who has joined a 'church' that is extremely homophobic and has made him hate himself. It has clearly done a number on his head and he is engaged in very reckless and dangerous behaviour. He could have contracted HIV with all this multiple partners and orgy sex sessions. I just feel for him. But he nor Cruise will come out.

FlakyB said...

But...he didn't have a wife and kids at this point?! He just loves sex!

libby said...

goes...that pic's not supposed to be this 20-year ago ex-lover. This is a famous more recent picture. I think it was originally from The Enquirer? This pic might be the 'nanny' that Travolta's been so close to for awhile?

Heaven said...

More than 30 years ago my mother worked at a villa in Barbados. She came home and told us about a group of young and older American men who were staying at the house. There were large jars of Vaseline on the bedside tables and in the morni the sheets were full of Vaseline. She knew they were famous Americans but didn't kow their names. A few weeks later she brought home a magazine and showed us a photo of one of the young men and it was John Travolta. We later found out one of the older men was a famous Hollywood producer. This was around Saturday night fever time.

strongerthancoffee said...

Now the term "Grease" has a whole new meaning...

Anonymous said...

Come out publicly or not (it's no secret in Hollywood and hasn't been for quite some time), he needs to stop being a letch. It sucks that he's stuck in this cycle of self hatred but that doesn't excuse the sexual harassment that he's been known for for decades now. There's no way of knowing if even if he were way out of the closet that his behavior would be any different.

auntliddy said...

It doesnt matter if he is gay, but his behaviour is less than ethical. Forcing yourself on people, sham marriage- think about the people you are hurting. Be who u are, but straighten your past first. and know that you just cant repress who you really are, and really shouldnt have to. Kelly too will have to admit she was living a untrue situation, and all the cos crap in the world cant change that. Set yourselves free!!

Jennifer H. said...

Admitting he's gay now would also mean he'd have to deal with the many allegations of sexual harrassment. Right now he has the defense of having no motive to come on to men at all since he isn't gay. I don't think he realizes how obvious it is at this point.

Sherry said...

Applauds Figgy....

Sherry R. said...

Great story, Heaven.

Sounds like John has some sex addiction issues...

Anonymous said...

@Figgy: That was awesome. Good story Heaven.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

GOdddddddddd why don't men like Travolta just come out of the closet already? Everyone knows, no one cares, you are not gonna get shot or something.
Does this guy (and many with him) have so much selfhate he is gonna deny his sexuality for the rest of his life, let alone join a cult that can 'cure' him? I seriously don't get it. People will applaud him for being honest, now they make fun of him for lying/keeping up appearances.

Also don't understand all the bearding ladies; you get paid/publicity while you know a man is struggling with himself and his sexuality? Shame on you.

Free John! Free Tom! Where's Shelly???

I'm sure there are plenty of gays who would offer John therapy. Gays have to be one of the most therapy friendly groups in existence. Therapy is discussed openly and honestly by more LGBT folks than I've ever seen with heteros. Doesn't seem to be such a stigma at all. Certainly helped me, although admittedly the work is never done.

and now he has to tell his daughter. how will that go? i think kelly knew before marriage, so she gets to explain her part in the lie. kids don't like to think about their parents as sexual beings, so this, coming as new information, is going to be really hard. the pubic will have their opinions and then move on. but his daughter will remember this, and how it is handled for the rest of her life. how many times has dad said, "that's a lie" about the press? then it turns out its actally dad that's the liar. so of course she will wonder what else he's lied about.

mary said...

Why does everyone say it's a sham marriage? Can't he love Kelly and their life together? Everyone's so judgemental. It's his life, let hime live it.

@Agent i think Oprah is gay also but i have friends who have argued intensely against it! But i stand firm!

Bit dams said...

why does everyone day its a sham? because wedding vows state “forsaking all others”. they are of course free to live their live as they wish, but its not a real marriage.

sbalb said...

I do think he loves Kelly, though not in a sexual way, and that's a big reason why he won't come out. Kelly wishes to remain married to him and remain in COS, neither of which she can easily do if he makes some big coming out speech. I don't think he REALLY cares about COS at this point, but she does. And while, like I said, I do believe there is real (albeit nonsexual) affection between the two of them, he also owes her f'ing big time regardless. His long-term marriage to her allowed him to spend the last 20-years doing exactly what he wanted to do- being a big Hollywood star and screwing as many guys as he wanted. So he'll do what she wants now, which is to hand-wave all of the stories and say "none of your business!". Which, unless or until he gets criminally charged with assault, it's really not.

Marcie S. Wogan said...

I know Oprah is not gay. Spent a lot of time with her when she was starting in Baltimore. Know lots of secrets never disclosed in tell alls or reveals. Willing to discuss with Enty privately. Know why she never married, know things Nikki Finke could never imagine.

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

Gay or bi or straight...coming out would not change the fact that he is a sexual predator. Why all the sympathy for him?

Marcie S. Wogan said...

Because he is not Mel Gibson. In terms of the difference between carefully managed public image vs. private lives as well as actual treatment of others, Mel Gibson is far more appalling than John Travolta.

Linnea said...

If this guy was with him for that long, wouldnt there be at least pictures of them together?

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

I'm not too sure about that, Mel Gibson verbally abuses, but is that worse than sexual abuse? I'm not sure there is a winner in this comparison.

Marcie S. Wogan said...

Try googling Vanity Fair article "Rude Warrior" for some insight. John Travolta isn't known for abusing in every possible way, far beyond verbal, everyone he deems as beneath him. Here's a quote to ponder.."Then there is his incendiary if casual indulgence in homophobic, sexist, and anti-Semitic slurs. In 1991 he made derisive remarks about homosexuals in the Spanish publication El PaĆ­s. Then he made the situation worse. He later recalled, “The next day I was doing an interview on national television and was asked, ‘So, are you going to apologize? You’ve offended the community.’ I said, ‘I’m not apologizing to anyone. I’ll apologize when hell freezes over. They can fuck off.’ ”

crila16 said...

I can't believe John is trying to hide that he's gay, yet doesn't mind letting the world know he's a scientologist. How messed up is that???

Mama June said...

Good story, Heaven thanks for sharing! :)

Ps-how do I get a job at a villa in Barbados?

Coriander Shea said...

He looks really happy in that photo. :(

Unknown said...

Back in the Grease days, I absolutely loved John Travolta..one of my all time favorite movies, but I agree, He needs to come out already, be true to himself for a change. Retire from the public eye. He would be so much happier.

Vintage Pink said...

He has gone so far in the wrong direction with that "church". Religion prevented him from being himself, and for getting proper medical treatment for his son that DIED.
I always wonder how far people will go with crackpots. This is a sad example.

artemis said...

C'mon guys, those pesky thetans are gay, not John! He just needs more auditing, you know?

SashaJames2 said...

The guy in the pic was his late son's nanny.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

@SashaJames2: Wasn't this also the guy who found the boy's body? Very sad.

Manyakitty307 said...

FWIW, I always thought was Toothy Tile. Jake G. is just too young.

Different Guest said...

I don't think is gay. I think he is bisexual - people are now adjusting to homo/heterosexual, they don't understand swinging both ways at the same time. Those of us who are old enough remember when he was with Diana Hyland until her death. He seemed to be very in love with her.

If John leaves Kelly and the Co$ would the Co$ retaliate by releasing Kelly's audit tapes? I wouldn't put it past them.

astrogirl said...

The relationship with Diana was more a mother/son dynamic. She played his mum onscreen. Definitely 100% gay. There has never been even a whiff of female co star shenanigans. Even gorgeous Olivia was passed over in an attempt to seduce young Matt L, she recently fessed up the truth.

1Jazzimom said...

Predator does not = gay.

astrogirl said...

No but predators go after the food they want to eat, ergo John gropes man, John wants man.

Unknown said...

I just pray he does come out so he can be face value to all of his fans and would be fans. Screw the old days Johnny, your family and friends will be proud and proud to have them in his life..period.. happiness is a warm gun....yes it is.... happiness is warm gun momma. When I hold you in my arms......I only wish you well johnny! Toronto Canada.
