A lawyer for John Travolta has moved swiftly to discredit a fourth masseur who stepped forward to accuse the actor of propositioning him.
Michael Caputo claims the Grease star was banned from the Peninsula Hotel in New York City for more than three years because of "inappropriate behavior" around spa staff.
He tells The New York Daily News, "Travolta would always request a man for his massage, but after a while no one would take him. It got to the point where they couldn't find any men to take him, and they had to ban him."
Caputo, who no longer works at the hotel, has accused Travolta of "removing his towel, grinding against the massage table and lifting his butt in the air".
He adds, "These are signs to a massage therapist he was trying to see how much he could get away with. They went to management."
Travolta's attorney Marty Singer has dismissed Caputo's claims, branding him a "disgruntled employee".
He says, "If he was banned, do you think he'd ever go back? He's never been banned, I guarantee you... The hotel never told John he was banned, and John never acted improperly."
The latest sensational claims follow those of three other men who came forward to accuse the Hollywood star of sexual misconduct.
