Elton John responds to sexual harassment lawsuit brought by former security guard

Legendary musician Sir Elton John has responded to
a sexual 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 sexual
harassment, battery and sexual 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-sex marriage
