Kelly's court is back in session on the docket today the allegations against actor John Travolta continue to pile up.
A third accuser now coming forward saying he too was allegedly groped by the actor while giving Travolta -- massage.
This as a radar online reports that the second plaintiff to -- has gone Travolta and his lawyer to agree to a private mediation.
To resolve his claims.
All -- after media reports say the plaintiff's lawyer.
Is claiming more than 100.
Have contacted him with tales about Travolta's alleged hijacks.
Joining us now Arthur -- dollar and mark I -- both are former prosecutors and now defense attorneys.
Not hundreds of contacted this guy mark.
And said -- -- and -- and that may be an exaggeration.
It may be a complete falsehood but I do ask you this.
At least three who are offering very similar accounts.
And then a fourth guys come forward saying it didn't -- necessarily happen to him personally but he claims Travolta was banned from the Peninsula Hotel in New York.
For all a long time because of his alleged.
With the -- sewers something Travolta tonight's.
Yet meg like anything is possible we all weren't there but I think he's being framed like the Mona Lisa and -- look at.
-- look at number one -- called -- juror number one look at John doe number one.
We don't know anything about -- could have a record dating back to the Disco crisis but conveniently.
All these guys call themselves John -- so nobody knows anything about -- but number one swore that this was a horrible David he'll never forget and only two million dollars is what will make him feel hold to take care with -- suffered.
-- yep I got the wrong date right so he's gone he's got other people just jumping on the bandwagon but you know what.
I feel like everybody's jumping -- they feel that they'll get a a piece of John Travolta now with a closed mediation.
Look you know everybody wants little piece of the deep pocket.
-- What what's strange here this is why do you go to private mediation if you are truly.
And you're a public figure like John Travolta.
Don't you say not only are we going to court but I am gonna cross claim against you so.
That's right and make your head spin yeah exactly where I was that day I'll play exactly what went down and there's not gonna beat anybody coming out of the woodwork to alleged happened -- that until.
Because it's all nonsense.
And the majority of these cases never go that far.
Because -- what you just said before cause what you just explain.
But it's usually -- -- here is the truth because I've handled some of these he's on both sides and the plaintiff's attorney and is dependent story.
Sometimes as a defendant's attorney -- It the world of of being a celebrity it's worth it for you.
To quietly give someone a 100000 dollars and make them go away.
Then to have to fight it and prove your innocence -- -- is gonna be a distraction it's gonna -- -- tons of money and and you just don't even want the accusation a look.
Let's face this is how the media works especially the print media.
When you get accused it's on page one when -- -- exonerated it's on page 32 fro between the obituaries in the comics.
So you don't you don't even want the accusation out there so we're not what -- you I understand however mr.
-- large these accusations.
Our yes I -- you sound credible -- Like what our audience these hello John Travolta or what quality or in -- urinal facility try to do that pay eight have you ever heard -- -- happy ending I mean just go to donate nurtured -- think that -- And I'll why don't we had a out of the realm dotted all of variant other terrorists not exactly what to do it and -- New York fed may amounts may have been -- All you let me -- -- gonna gullible this could be a total money grab as you reporting out on Friday marked with the with the money on the on the issue people yes but.
Does -- give you any pause that you know the lawyers claiming he's got.
Hundreds he's got scores of guys who were calling him up saying the source saying neat I don't need to do what's -- little.
And hold on.
Which which lawyer you mean the one that I know about because he was brokering them mini me sex tape even that one that's the line that's -- -- lawyer just checking.
Yet just checking you -- the same one who swore that John doe number one was credible and actually had a case that one.
You know the one who claim that it's all happened on January 16 when he was on the other -- that one.
Listen if he wants to clear his name it's gonna take what 22 and a half -- -- the way lengthy.
Process it doesn't move quickly the wheels of justice don't spin and placing you know what -- throw some money out of it goes away.
The other thing it's out there you know Arthur is that they you know rumors circulate and these in these you know rags that we -- in -- in supermarket.
And the rumors have been out there for a long time that John Travolta is gay -- rumors that Tom -- is gay they're both Scientologist there's rumors about Scientology's.
Could somebody be taking advantage of absolutely I -- -- the quick hits and you question is.
Absolutely it and the bottom line -- so to speak like lawyers here in -- scored.
Let's say he's liable say he did it.
What was the damage I mean if he really is getting a misogyny go look you know would you like -- beside me down here they don't think.
No go through the allegations because it was a lot more that would you like the massage readout here that anybody would consider it an abuse if they if they -- want.
But to engagement OK but that is where the eggs that's where the exact -- exaggeration is the most.
That we the people most prone to exaggeration to take someone hitting on you and then blowing -- abortion to the tune of two million dollars and nobody people like that let.
-- -- that -- gratification right in front of you after making you try to do that gratifying is not top that but not everything I've got a little girl -- Thank -- I think this is -- I think it's significant -- significant enough where if somebody committed assault like they're alleging.
This person this -- masseuse would go out and he would.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- why don't you file criminal complaint why you get to keep your anonymity.
When you never filed a complaint thanks guys we'll be right back.
