Where there's smoke there is fire. Don't be shocked that others will accept his "version" of events given that you went to a hotel room with the guy and you exchanged texts of a sexual nature. That being said, if you have asked him to stop with the "lies" and he refuses, consider hiring a lawyer to send a Cease and Desist letter, and hope it does not have to go farther than that. You could ask HR of your employer to tell him to stop, but that only means you will have to formally own up to your own conduct.
I agree with my colleagues.

I really don't think the law or a lawyer can do a whole lot for you in this situation. To stop the talk at work, you'll need to go to HR and complain. But let's face it: employers can only do so much to stop gossip. If an employer says "stop talking about something" to people, everyone's going to want to know about what it is that's not supposed to be talked about. So even going to HR may have its pitfalls. Good luck and stay away from hotel masseurs!
