Travolta Sued By Man Claiming to Be Secret Lover

John Travolta is being sued by former pilot David Gotterba - in response to threats by the actor's camp to sue him.

The suit comes after Gotterba previously claimed to have had a gay affair with Travolta during his six years as the star’s private pilot.

Travolta's camp allegedly responded to the claims by threatening to sue Gotterba, claiming he had signed a confidentiality agreement that prevented him from talking to the media about his former employer.

But Gotterba countered with a legal case of his own, in which he claimed he never signed any such agreement. He argued he was within his rights to talk about Travolta without fearing a lawsuit.

According to website TMZ , in Gotterba's suit he claims he received a threatening letter from Travolta's attorney Marty Singer. But Gotterba argues the termination agreement did not include a confidentiality clause.

Berkeley Student Has Public Sex In University Library and Publishes

The elite University of California, Berkeley has seen a blow to its uber-serious reputation with a controversial article from a student boasting about her marathon campus sex sessions.

Nadia Cho's detailed account was part of her weekly column in The Daily Californian, Berkeley’s independent, student-run newspaper.

Cho writes that she and an unnamed male student started their romp in Berkeley’s library, Main Stacks, the day before Thanksgiving, when the campus was ‘marvellously empty’.

But other students were in the library studying while the two performed and more than one student walked by them in mid-act, Cho writes.

She and her partner then moved into one of Berkeley’s classrooms, as she graphically describes.

‘Sex isn’t always about c****** and having orgasms. Sometimes it’s for s**** and giggles,’ she writes.

Gabby Douglas: Fast Food or Olympic Gold?

 

Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas almost chose Chick-fil-A over gymnastics.

“I can get a job at Chick-Fil-A in Virginia Beach and live off the 14-grand I just won at World Championships,” Ms. Douglas writes in her new memoir, “Grace, Gold & Glory,” according to the New York Daily News. “I just want to be a normal teenage kid.”

Ms. Douglas and her teammates, McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross, Aly Raisman and Jordyn Wieber, won the team gold medal in gymnastics at the 2012 London Olympic Games.

Ms. Douglas is also the first African American to win the all-around gold medal in gymnastics.

“Oh, my gosh, I forgot about that,” Ms. Douglas said after winning the gold medal, according to SI.com. “It’s definitely an amazing feeling and great honor to be the first African-American to win. I hope I can inspire people. My mother told me that I can inspire a nation.”

Conversion Therapists Being Sued For Impotence

 
Gay “conversion therapy,” which claims to help men overcome unwanted same-sex attractions but has been widely attacked as unscientific and harmful, is facing its first tests in the courtroom.
“Saying the abuse made you gay is terrible. Once I accepted that I was gay, I was able to focus on the more serious problem of a history of sex abuse.” CHAIM LEVIN
 “I was encouraged to develop anger and rage toward my parents. The notion that your parents caused this is a horrible lie.” MICHAEL FERGUSON
In New Jersey on Tuesday, four gay men who tried the therapy filed a civil suit against a prominent counseling group, charging it with deceptive practices under the state’s Consumer Fraud Act.
