Elton John bodyguard sues for sexual harassment, alleges unwelcome intimate touching

Sir Elton John is being sued for sexual harassment by a former bodyguard who claims the singer subjected him to a barrage of “unwelcome” and intimate touching and lurid suggestions over several years.

Jeffrey Wenninger alleges that John tried to grab his genitals, pulled his nipples and told him that he had “so many gay genes,” in court documents lodged in Los Angeles. The documents claim he was a victim of sexual harassment and battery.

The alleged incidents, which are said to have occurred multiple times, have been dismissed by the singer’s lawyers as a “baseless lawsuit brought by a disgruntled former security officer seeking to extract an undeserved payment”.

Wenninger, who stopped working for John in September 2014 after 12 years as his bodyguard, gives specific times and places for some of the episodes.  (more...)
