(CBS/AP) LOS ANGELES - A former cruise line worker has filed a federal lawsuit against John Travolta, accusing the actor of embracing him naked after complaining about neck pain.

The lawsuit, filed on June 21 in Los Angeles by Fabian Zanzi, seeks unspecified damages.

Pictures: John Travolta

Zanzi contends the "Pulp Fiction" star disrobed and held him against his will during a Caribbean cruise three years ago.

According to TMZ, the lawsuit also claims Travolta offered Zanzi $12,000 to keep quiet.

The actor was accused recently in another federal lawsuit of groping two masseurs. The case quickly unraveled after Travolta's attorney, Martin Singer, discredited one of the anonymous accusers by showing the actor was across the country on the day of one of the alleged incidents.

"This is another ludicrous lawsuit with inane claims," Singer said Tuesday in a statement obtained by TMZ. "It is obvious that Mr. Zanzi and his lawyers are looking for their 15 minutes of fame."
