Legendary musician Sir Elton John has responded to a s*xual harassment lawsuit leveled against him by a former security guard that worked for him. Jeffrey Wenninger, who worked for Sir Elton from 2002 to 2014 as a guard, is suing him for alleged s3xual harassment, battery and s*xual battery.
A statement issued by Orin Snyder, the US attorney for Sir Elton’s Rocket Entertainment Group, said:
“This baseless lawsuit is brought by a disgruntled former security officer seeking to extract an undeserved payment. These claims are patently untrue and contradicted by numerous previous statements made by this plaintiff. We will not give into his latest abuse of the legal system.”
Sir Elton has been married to David Furnish since 2014. He is a prominent campaigner for LGBT rights and same-s*x marriage.
