-- -- -- back in session on the -- today John Travolta fighting back after some X -- allegations surfaced from at least two -- Massage -- tests.
Earlier this week the start was accused of improper sexual conduct at a hotel in Beverly Hills by a -- -- Travolta's lawyer quickly emerged to say the actor wasn't even on the West Coast that day he was in New York.
But now second plaintiff making similar allegations about a separate exchange this -- at an Atlanta resort.
Both of them now suing mr.
Travolta for two million dollars and Travolta's lawyer says.
He's going to counter -- from malicious prosecution.
Joining us now mark I watched former prosecutor now defense attorney and Julia morrow -- defense attorney and former prosecutor herself.
-- -- so -- just set it up for us because these two men.
Did not file criminal complaint and they went her right to the lawyer who could fill their pocketbooks.
And -- -- unlike mr.
Travolta get to remain anonymous.
As they stand behind these allegations.
Yes well first of all let me just enjoy disclaimer I'm a huge Travolta fan and this is purely an intellectual -- I totally agree but I think -- Jackson -- relevant CD you can.
I mean you can't you can't make this stuff -- -- -- -- that are in this complaint yes you are unbelievable the clothes he's wearing.
The car he's driving during the exchanges burgers when he showed up at the bond allow direct quotes like come on dude all -- -- law.
I can't -- and saying hello all I did I do not what we're gonna complain -- of the filed court document but the bottom line is with.
Kind of detail Kirk chances are happened number -- you.
There -- -- -- ending coming up letting -- out right now.
And and they are they going to do you think here and and you know based on that if there's smoke there's fire how many more victims are gonna come -- -- that he did this to them I don't.
We -- how many more victims market the two bit alleged victims we know lot of one says it happened and in LA and and Travolta's lawyer says he can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Travolta wasn't even in LA on that day.
Yeah I'm not too good -- geography but what I do know is when.
This guy is saying this mean the -- that I'll never forget that day it happened on January 16.
At 10 AM and there are flight records showing that that exact time.
John Travolta's on the other side of the country in New York Westchester he led a 3:59 AM and then later that day had a wardrobe fitting also in New York.
And then had dinner -- mr.
Also in New York.
It is physically impossible for him to have committed this horrific abhorrent made up offense.
Number two played it all it's really difficult to find out where Travolta shooting a movie claim that happen to him he never filed a criminal complaint and -- come running out of the -- saying Travolta does this does to me he waited he jumped on the bandwagon actually now we have been doing in Arizona cannot wait for hundreds and -- -- -- tell I have.
No I was gonna say that's actually wrong -- mark just -- the second guy the Atlanta -- them actually did complain.
Because he worked for the hotel where Travolta was -- Megan and he went and told his -- What had happened because Travolta came up and form again dominant spot he told his boss what happened and nothing's done about it -- we did actually make a prompt complaint.
And -- today the alleged alibi.
So the guys off a day Travolta was in LA -- Not I don't I don't know her and really wait a little higher -- these guys are deadlocked -- latest -- a lawyer.
Also says that he's going to be able to disprove the proof that Travolta's lawyers offering.
About Travolta being in New York so they're not saying -- he was off today they're saying no no we're not today and we're gonna we're gonna have.
Prove that this evidence of Travolta being in New York is false that I'll get mitigated out I don't know about -- number one market.
But but -- if number to a separate guy coming forward in Atlanta a different city his -- -- Dare explicit.
I mean this is a lot -- see it is a ridiculous we do -- why I.
That adds that it.
If I don't they have been doing criminal defense and prosecution for twenty years in the best lies are based on those have come into the arena and give incredible detail and you know make some of these people believable.
Had my card I don't want -- don't have any vocals aren't we already have thought we highly and it is what I'm glad they got unbelievable -- All you have to do was -- incredible detail you change something.
If somebody did this to you -- just change it to a deep pocket you say it was John Travolta did it looks like you're telling the truth but you're really not I'm giving the -- the -- I don't know.
Any that ever happened to him whether it was manufactured complete thing of the thing that that got my attention -- was when the lawyer came out and said -- -- I've been contacted he says by scores he says he says he's got.
You know scores of mail massaged there -- -- cartoonists who are coming forward as well and I -- I hope we're gonna find out because not everybody.
It's going to be able to shown to be a liar.
-- that's part of maybe it'll turn into a class action suit from the -- -- the lawyers that that you gathered people from the he's that there had everything in my country are coming forward with him.
Here's -- here's what I wanna know.
It's disturbing to me that these are anonymous plaintiffs who never went to the police who went right to some lawyer who I guess handles a lot of criminal cases.
-- while his lawsuit against against doctoral mark.
And we don't get to know -- they are because their alleged sexual assault victims so John Travolta has his name dragged through the mud.
-- figured American culture.
-- -- we don't get to know when the guys are.
If this is BS.
Do we get to know who these plaintiffs are and tens Travolta successfully -- them.
Yeah I believe that we will know who those people are and unfortunately because you can't squeeze what -- from Iraq.
He'll probably just let it go most of America looks assume that this is not true hopefully will.
I'll move on but.
I would hope so come on really isn't I -- listen -- -- already gone through the mud with his son and and that extortion scenario.
You know we know that that that high profile folks have a bull's -- and a -- while the.
That's the problem release claims -- I'm not saying they're not -- I don't know what the Detroit they're not true but if if they're not true.
You really can't sue if you're public figure it's almost impossible to sue for defamation so now he's been labeled with this you know you know elicits.
Seeking you know Donna is right and handing it off I bet he's -- labelled what -- -- -- if it's not true just not that he can do is there.
Well -- first of all he can't sue for defamation because these allegations are made in the context of litigation which make some sort of privileged.
But what he could do it if he's ultimately successful -- and you have the first win your case.
You can then turn around and see who -- for malicious prosecution and you know filing a -- -- frivolous lawsuit -- Federer Federer.
And it maybe with that -- he would be ultimately vindicated or might be a few you know straddling just believers around the corner there that would publicly the only way he could dedicate himself.
He might be I mean if this guy is right that he's got all these other alleged victims.
We'll find out that the real question today for me is why didn't anybody reported to the police will be right back yet.
