Doug Gotterba, who claims he had a
six-year love affair with John Travolta, sought a $10 million
settlement to drop his planned tell-all book, a Travolta
representative has said.
Gotterba, who worked for Travolta's
aircraft company Alto in the 1980s, filed a lawsuit over a
confidentiality agreement he says is unenforceable.
week, Travolta called the lawsuit “every celebrity's Achilles
“It's just about people wanting
money,” he said. “That's all. It happens on many levels.”
Gotterba denied the claims in comments
to the UK's Daily Mail.
“What John Travolta said about me in
a recent interview is an inaccurate description of what our court
case is about,” Gotterba
“Our dispute is purely about
declaratory relief and will be a non-monetary judgment. This is
about the truth and my right for a court to decide who is telling the
truth, not for Mr. Travolta to make a judgment.”
According to a Travolta representative,
Gotterba asked for $10 million to settle the case out of court.
