John Travolta has won a legal victory
against Robert Randolph, who claims to have seen the actor having sex
Randolph, the author of the
self-published book You'll Never Spa In This Town Again, sued
Travolta, claiming that Travolta's attorney Marty Singer had soiled
his reputation in a 5-page cease-and-desist letter published by
In his book, Randolph claims he
witnessed Travolta involved in Los Angeles' “secret gay spa
subculture,” where he has seen him having sex with other men.
Singer countered in his letter that
Randolph could not be believed because, among other things, he spent
time in mental institutions and a 2003 attack left him brain damaged.
Randolph sued for trade libel,
intentional interference with prospective economic advantage and
negligent interference with prospective economic advantage.
According to celebrity website TMZ.com,
the judge, who dismissed the case in September, has ordered Randolph
to pay Travolta's $139,645.17 legal bill.
“This legal fee award is another
complete and total victory for Mr. Travolta,” Singer told TMZ.com.
“Anyone else who files a ridiculous lawsuit against him should
expect a similar outcome.”
