John Travolta has been named in a criminal complaint by a 21-year-old masseur who accused the Pulp Fiction star of sexual battery.

As the #MeToo campaign continues to expose sexual harassment in Hollywood, a police report against actor John Travolta in which a young masseur accused the star of groping him in 2000 has resurfaced.

During the incident, Travolta, now 63, allegedly asked for a more intimate rubdown and removed his towel to expose his bottom.

The masseur - who was not identified in the report - "consented to the touching after Travolta told him he was attractive, after Travolta said he had been excited, after Travolta removed his towel, and while Travolta was naked along with (redacted) in the steam room", according to the report published by gossip site RadarOnline.

After the massage was complete, Travolta and the masseur went into another room, where employee performed a "Citrus Scrub" on Travolta.

"(T) hey moved to the steam room. where Travolta asked it he would accompany him, so he wouldn't have to sit alone", the police report stated.

He said shortly afterward, Travolta removed his towel and was nude.

He claims Travolta offered to show off his own massage techniques, and began to rub the employee's inner thigh underneath his towel.

The man claimed he was uncomfortable, so he left the steam room to shower, but was followed by Travolta, who asked if he wanted his back "soaped up".

According to the report, while the masseur packed up his massage table, Travolta made lewd comments and asked if he had "ever had his a**hole licked by another man" and if so, to "tell him what he would do, so he could have something to fantasize about".

The spa employee told police that he felt "violated" by the encounter, according to the Mercury News. The office concluded in the report that "he told me he made no advances toward Travolta, and didn't say anything to lead him on".

The incident allegedly took place at LaQuinta Hotel in Palm Springs, California, at their spa, when Travolta had requested it for personal use.

Travolta faced similar allegations when he was sued after allegedly trying to have sex with a male masseur at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2012. He was accused of touching the masseur's genitals during the appointment.

The officer confirmed the masseur "desires prosecution against Travolta for sexual battery", but noted the "details do not meet the elements of battery ... or sexual battery".

The lawsuit also claimed that Travolta masturbated during the encounter.
