Elton John’s Former Security Guard Is Reportedly Suing Him For Sexual Harassment

Elton John is being sued by a former security guard for sexual harassment, as reported by TMZ.

Jeffrey Wenninger is claiming that three incidents occurred during 2014 which included John attempting to grab his genitals and put his finger between his butt cheeks.

Allegedly the lawsuit filed by Wenninger claims that the singer told him to, “get your todger out” and “say hello to Uncle Elton.”

He is also claiming that John twisted his nipples on one occasion while in the car. He ceased working for him in September 2014 and is suing for sexual harassment and battery.

Both NME and TMZ have approached John’s camp for comment but neither have had any response to the claims.

The iconic popstar released his 32nd record Wonderful Crazy Night this year. He is also about to host an exhibition at the Tate Modern gallery in London featuring modernist photography by more than 60 artists from his own personal collection.

UPDATE: Elton John has denied the claims. Orin Snyder, the US attorney for John’s Rocket Entertainment Group issued a statement to NME reading, “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.”
