The hotel, meanwhile, has refused to comment, and Travolta's lawyer is denying the whole thing, but no one is entirely able to dismiss the claim, as it comes amidst reports of at least three other male workers coming forward to accuse the actor of naughty behavior on the massage table.
Ex-Peninsula masseur Michael Caputo spoke to the NY Daily News about Travolta's troubled past with the hotel:
"Travolta would always request a man for his massage, but after a while no one would take him because of his inappropriate behavior.
It got to the point where they couldn’t find any men to take him, and they had to ban him."
Not that it must have been an easy decision for the hotel, where a Deluxe Suite starts at $3,800/night. No business ever wants to knowingly ban a client as high-profile (read: filthy rich) as the former star of Saturday Night Fever. But when, as Caputo claims, the client begins to feel a little too relaxed during a treatment, something's got to be done.
