As John Travolta's former massage therapists emerge with allegations of inappropriate behavior, we're hearing that a certain South Beach drag entertainer claims to have had a brush or two of his own with the actor at the Russian & Turkish Baths on Miami Beach a few years back. The model turned high profile drag queen is said to have had his own consensual touchy feely moment with Travolta following their individual Eucalyptus massages, a subject the former Sweathog is said to have been very, er, excited about, sharing the benefits of this ancient rubbing ritual while communicating his knowledge to the out-of-drag dude with a hands-on demo. Refusing to jump on the bandwagon, said drag queen is remaining uncharacteristically tight lipped and will neither comment nor come forward. That is, until Gloria Allred, attorney for two of the more loose lipped alleged ex-Travolta paramours, or JT himself comes a knocking. We're also counting down the minutes until some former Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne massage therapists jump into the ring as that's the hotel Travolta seems to favor, along with alleged late night in-room massage appointments, when he's in town.

Miami law firm Astigarraga Davis is suing the talent agency of Spanish crooner Julio Iglesias for bailing on a concert scheduled at a hotel in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. The concert was supposed to take place October 16, 2010, but the singer pulled out last minute, citing “security concerns” even though our sources tell us that numerous assurances for security detail had been made and a number of other artists had performed there without incident, including Dionne Warwick and The Gypsy Kings.
According to the attorney for the plaintiff, Merit Crystal Cove Hotel paid nearly $300,000 for the performance, only to be stiffed with a no show-- and no reimbursement.
“The owner of Merit Crystal Cove Hotel paid the promoter in advance and in full, with the understanding that Julio Iglesias would be there to perform,” said Edward Mullins, shareholder of Astigarraga Davis and attorney for the plaintiff. “But it got sandbagged when Iglesias decided not to show, leaving it without a performer and $300,000 in the hole.” At this time, the attorney for the International Creative Talent Agency has not responded to our request for comment.
