Sir Elton John is striking back at former bodyguard Jeffrey Wenninger, who sued the singer this week for sexual harassment.
According to Pink News, the lawsuit claims Elton John “put his hand down his trousers and also that he tried to put his fingers between his buttocks. It is also alleged that Sir Elton told his former bodyguard to ‘get your todger out’ and ‘say hello to Uncle Elton.'”
Wenninger also claims the singer once pinched his nipples and said “you have so many gay genes in you, they just haven’t met up yet.”
Elton John calls the claims “baseless.”
According to a statement from the singer’s lawyer:
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 in to his latest abuse of the legal system.”
