The masseur had initially claimed Travolta made unwanted sexual advances and touches while in a private bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel during a Jan. 16, 2012, massage appointment, according to court documents. He sought $2 million in punitive damages.

But, TMZ had reported that flight records showed Travolta was in New York City that day and was photographed at the Greenwich Hotel.

The second masseur, who filed a sexual battery and assault suit against the 58-year-old actor in Atlanta, is reportedly still pursuing charges.
