John Travolta is being sued by his former pilot, Doug Gotterba, according to TMZ.

TMZ reports Gotterba made headlines recently when he told The National Enquirer that he had a sexual relationship with Travolta. After going public, Gotterba claims he got a threatening letter from Travolta’s lawyer, Marty Singer. In the lawsuit, Gotterba says Singer threatened to sue him for breaking a confidentiality agreement Gotterba allegedly signed when he was terminated. Gotterba says he signed a termination agreement, but there was no confidentiality clause.

UPDATE: Marty Singer released the following statement to EW:

“In his ridiculous lawsuit, Mr. Gotterba absurdly claims that an agreement that was never signed is binding, but that a signed agreement is not binding on him.  Significantly, the signed agreement actually gives Mr. Gotterba additional rights that don’t appear in the unsigned draft.  Mr. Gotterba obviously filed this lawsuit to get his 15 minutes of fame.  We plan to get this meritless case promptly dismissed.”
