UPDATE: Elton sued by former bodyguard
Tuesday, March 29 2016

Elton forced himself on a former security guard, grabbing the man's genitals on multiple occasions ... at least that's the claim in a lawsuit just filed against Elton.

Jeffrey Wenninger says three alleged incidents went down in 2014. In the suit, Wenninger says he and Elton were in a car together when Elton put his hands in Wenninger's pants. He says Elton attempted to grab his genitals and put his fingers between Wenninger's butt cheeks. According to the suit, Elton then told him to "Get your todger out" and "say hello to Uncle Elton."

Wenninger says he attempted to verbally and physically resist, but it never deterred the singer. Wenninger says another time, also in a car, Elton twisted his nipples and said ... "You gorgeous thing, you." Wenninger says there were several other incidents during his employment. He says he stopped working with Elton in September 2014.

He's suing for sexual harassment and battery. Meanwhile, Elton has hit out at Wenniger saying claims that he twisted his nipples and attempted to grab his genitals are 'baseless' and 'patently untrue.' Elton's record company Rocket Entertainment Group, issued a statement, where they strenuously denied the claims. Orin Snyder, a US attorney for the company: "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."
