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.

Last week, Travolta called the lawsuit “every celebrity's Achilles heel.”

“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 said.

“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.
