Another accuser has come forward to accuse John Travolta of sexual misconduct, and this one isn't remaining anonymous.

Fabian Zanzi told the Spanish news website ABC.es that Travolta propositioned him while he was working on a Royal Caribbean cruise in 2009.

The Chilean cruise worker said the "Saturday Night Fever" star offered him $12,000 to have sex with him, which he declined, the New York Daily News reported.

"He said that he had something on his neck. I thought it was lint. When he got close to me, he took off his white robe and he was naked," Zanzi told a Chilean news show, according to E! Online. "He hugged me and asked me to give him a massage."

Travolta's lawyer Marty Singer dismissed the new claim as an opportunistic lie.

"This individual is simply hopping on the bandwagon to get his 15 minutes of fame by coming up with a story for the first time with something that supposedly happened over three years ago," Singer told the Daily News. "No lawyer has contacted us."

Two anonymous masseurs have already filed a $2 million lawsuit against the actor, alleging harassment and sexual battery. Both masseurs say he made unwanted sexual advances on them.
 
John Doe 1 said the incident took place in a Beverly Hills, Calif., hotel on Jan. 16, while John Doe 2 said it took place in an Atlanta hotel on Jan. 28.

Singer has also decried those claims as "absurd and ridiculous," and Travolta has called the suit "a complete fiction."

After Travolta pointed out that he had proof he had flown to New York on the morning of Jan. 16 and checked into his hotel there, John Doe 1 said he had misremembered the date of the alleged harassment and promised to file an amended complaint.

It remains unclear whether Zanzi intended to join the pending litigation.
