Elton John Insists No Wrongdoing in Sexual Harassment Lawsuit by Ex-Bodyguard

The Rocket Man issues a statement, denying any inappropriate verbal and physical advances towards his former bodyguard.

AceShowbiz - Elton John has reacted to the lawsuit filed by his former bodyguard named Jeffrey Wenninger. The off-duty officer who reportedly worked for the Rocket Man until 2014 sued the 69-year-old British singer of sexual battery and harassment.

The man accused his ex-employer of making inappropriate verbal and physical advances. The star allegedly grabbed his security's genitals, touched his backside, and twisted his nipples in separate incidents. In a statement through his lawyer Orin Snyder, the singer vehemently denies the allegations.

"This baseless lawsuit is brought by a disgruntled former security officer seeking to extract an undeserved payment," the attorney says in a statement. "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."
