69-year-old Elton John was unable to provide the court with strong evidence of his innocence in the case of sexual harassment against Jeffrey Wenniger, who worked as a security guard with the singer. He had to pay the plaintiff a six-figure sum for moral damage.
In March, the bodyguard of Elton John sued him, accusing the former boss of serious things. He said that the performer constantly grabbed him by the genitals, trying to put his hands in his trousers, pestered and pursued him. Sir Elton, of course, did not admit his guilt and called Wenniger's words "groundless lies".Read also

Hide the crime
According to A Sun on Sunday, the legendary singer did not want publicity and solved the problem with the victim, who was fired in 2015, amicably, paying him a solid compensation, and also used all his connections to prevent the information from becoming public.
Angry Elton wanted to rehabilitate his honest name, but the Court of Appeal upheld the previous decision, according to which journalists had the right to print scandalous material.
We add that the singer's representative continues to deny the guard's claims, but can not explain why his client transferred such huge money to Jeffrey Wenniger's account.
