John Travolta has been hit with a sexual battery and assault lawsuit for $2 million by a masseur claiming the actor rubbed his leg, touched his genitals and made strange references to sexual favors.

The lawsuit, which identifies the masseur as John Doe, alleges Travolta responded to an ad for his services in January.

Travolta's representative called the suit a complete fiction and fabrication, according to Entertainment Weekly, claiming the actor was not even in Los Angeles on the date of the alleged encounter.

Travolta's reps went on to promise a counter-suit against the plaintiff and his attorney.

Travolta allegedly arranged to meet the masseur on Jan. 16 on a street corner, picking him up in a black SUV strewn with condoms and chocolate cake wrappers.

Travolta then took the masseur to a private bungalow in the Beverly Hills Hotel, stripped immediately to reveal he was semi-erect, according to the suit. Travolta then allegedly suggestively removed a towel covering his derriere, repeatedly touched the masseur's man bits and suggested Travolta give the massage.

After his repeated advances were rebuffed, Travolta allegedly called the masseur a loser.

The erratic star then allegedly launched himself headlong into a rant about Hollywood and how it's controlled by homosexual Jewish men who expect favors in return for sexual activity.
