The lawsuit describes several cases of abuse that occurred in 2014. According to the statement, 69-year-old singer attempted to touch the genitals and nipples of the man, and also tried to push finger between his buttocks.
The harasser also said annoying compliments, required his bodyguard to show genitals and to "say hi to Uncle Elton." Wenninger argues that he physically resisted and warned the employer about the inadmissibility of such actions, but the star did not properly react to his employee’s resistance.
However, a lawyer Orin Snyder, who represents the interests of Elton John, said that all the allegations, which were made to the address of the artist, are groundless. He also noted that the ex-bodyguard Geoffrey Wenninger, who sued the singer, simply "wants to get undeserved payment."
Despite opinions that support the celebrity, the bodyguard also has the alleged evidence against Elton John.
