Elton John sued for sexually harassing bodyguard


Elton John sued for sexually harrasing security guardSir Elton John has been accused of grabbing a bodyguard’s genitals and ordering him to “get your todger out”.

The claim forms part of a lawsuit against the 69-year-old performer filed by security guard Jeffrey Wenninger.

The former employee alleges that he was sexually harassed by John in three separate incidents in 2014.

In one, he claims that while in a car, the star put his hands down his pants and grabbed his genitals, telling him to “get your todger out” and “say hello to Uncle Elton”.

Wenninger also alleges that John twisted his nipples, called him “You gorgeous thing, you”, and put a finger between his buttocks.

He further states that the singer told him: “You have so many gay genes in you, they just haven’t met up yet.”

According to Wenninger, repeated requests for John to stop harassing him were ignored.

The sexual harassment and battery suit has been filed in Los Angeles.

Wenninger wants damages for “being placed in fear for his physical well-being” and says that he “suffered and continues to suffer extreme pain and mental anguish to his mind and body”.

John’s record company has denied the claims in a statement, calling the lawsuit “baseless”, “patently untrue” and an “abuse of the legal system”.

The statement described Wenninger as “a disgruntled former security officer seeking to extract an undeserved payment”.
