Elton John is NOT staying silent!
It was revealed yesterday that the singer’s former bodyguard, Jeffrey Wenninger, has filed a lawsuit against the pop powerhouse claiming his ex-employer sexually harassed him back in 2014.
But now, the acclaimed artist is speaking out against the allegations.
The musician’s lawyer, Orin Snyder told People that his client believes Jeffrey is coming forward with these scandalous statement in a an attempt to make a quick buck:
“This baseless lawsuit is brought by a disgruntled former security officer seeking to extract an undeserved payment.”
The attorney added the 69-year-old is flat-out denying that he ever assaulted the member of his security team, continuing:
“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.”
