Elton John is denying claims of sexual harassment after Jeffrey Wenninger, a former security guard, sued the pop icon and alleged multiple occasions of groping and inappropriate behavior, NME reports.
Wenninger has claimed that John groped him multiple times and showcased inappropriate behavior with the guard. Orin Snyder, the U.S. attorney for Elton John's Rocket Entertainment Group, has shared the following statement:
"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."
