Los Angeles – The John Travolta sex scandal has spread even wider with allegations that the actor had a six-year homosexual relationship with his pilot, reports RadarOnline.

According to Travolta’s former secretary and pilot Doug Gotterba’s ex-boyfriend, Travolta and Gotterba were romantically involved in the 1980s.

The article is in the new edition of the National Enquirer, which will be available in stores in the US tomorrow.

Joan Edwards was Travolta’s secretary from 1978 to 1994 and was the first former employee who announced to the public that the actor was gay.

“I did everything for him, including taking care of his personal and professional schedules. Of course I knew he was gay. It never bothered me,” she told the Enquirer.

She was also aware of Travolta’s relationship with Gotterba, who began working for the actor in 1981.

According to Edwards, Gotterba told her that Travolta was gay and that they had a sexual relationship.

Travolta has been accused of sexual assault by a number of male masseurs and is currently fighting two lawsuits.
