John Travolta faces new allegations about his sexuality with a woman, who claims to be the actor's former secretary, publicly revealing that he had a 6-year gay affair with his pilot.

Joan Edwards, who was reportedly Travolta's secretary from 1978 to 1994, claims that the actor is a homosexual and claims that he had a sexual relationship with his pilot Doug Gotterba, according to The National Enquirer.
"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," Edwards is quoted as telling The National Enquirer.
"That's how I met Doug. We both worked for John at the same time. Doug is a wonderful guy and we are still good friends. He told me that John was gay and they had a sexual relationship," she added.
Travolta, 58, was recently accused of sexually assaulting seven men in separate incidents all of which his attorney, Marty Singer, has vehemently denied.
Travolta's wife of 21 years, Kelly Preston, 49, reportedly walked out of the couple's marital home and is in the process of ending their marriage as a result of the allegations and newly released photos showing Travolta dressed in drag reportedly in 1997.
Robert Britz, who allegedly dated Gotterba after Travolta, supported Edwards' claim after revealing that he too knew about the married father's gay affair.
"Doug told me right at the beginning of our relationship that he'd had a homosexual relationship with John Travolta in the 1980s. Doug said John was constantly grabbing at his genital area, but he put up with John's sexual advances because working for him was 'lucrative,'" Britz said.
"I personally saw about two minutes of Doug's home video showing John Travolta sitting at the end of a bed with his shirt off. There were plates of food in front of him. The video appeared to be shot in a hotel room. Doug made it clear that it was very lucrative for him to be what he called John's 'personal right hand man' and homosexual partner," he added.
Singer is said to be in settlement talks with at least one of Travolta's accusers, although a source confirms that "no money has been paid yet," Radar reported.
John Travolta himself has not confirmed any of the allegations put forth by accusers.
