Call it a case of musical lawyers.
A day after the first unidentified masseur who had filed a sexual battery lawsuit against John Travolta dropped his case and hired Gloria Allred to represent him, the actor’s other accuser, only known as John Doe No. 2, has now latched on to the high-profile attorney as well.
“We are now representing John Doe No. 2,” Allred said in a statement given to E! News. “We believe that the lawsuit should be filed in another court and, therefore, the lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice. We will be conferring with our client regarding what will happen next in this case.”
Sure enough, when E! News reached out today to attorney Okorie Okorocha, who initially represented both John Does, he told us, “John Doe 2 has a new lawyer.”
Meanwhile, Travolta attorney Marty Singer insisted in a statement to E! News that “the allegations in Doe No. 2’s lawsuit are unraveling, just like Doe No. 1’s ridiculous allegations, which were proven false and impossible. This is hardly a surprise, especially since even in his lawsuit, Doe No. 2’s absurd allegations are only made on the basis of ‘information and belief’ rather than being asserted as an alleged ‘fact.'”
