Dark revelations for singer Elton John. The British star is the subject of lawsuits initiated by his ex-wife Renate Blauel, as revealed by The Daily Mail newspaper which obtained the documents from the High Court in London. She is asking for £ 3million in damages due to disagreements over their marriage.
In 1984, she married Elton John, whom she divorced in 1988. She tells in the pages of the British newspaper that she swallowed tablets of Valium, an anxiolytic, when the singer revealed to her that she wanted to shorten their honeymoon. Renate Blauel had been taken to hospital to have her stomach emptied, going through this ordeal alone. She claims that Elton John did not visit her during her hospitalization, pheasant driving her directly from the hospital to the airport.
A tumultuous love
Elton John thwarted the case, arguing that the object of Renate Blauel’s complaint was “to get a large sum of money from Elton and smear his name with false statements.” In 2005, Elton John remarried. He was saying “yes” to David Furnish, with whom he had two children, Elijah and Zachary.
Elton John had met Renata Blauel after working with her on the album Too Low for Zero, and with whom he also collaborated on Breaking Hearts. At that time, the singer was still struggling to accept his homosexuality, while in 1976 he revealed to be bisexual in the columns of Rolling Stone magazine, thus losing many fans and provoking many homophobic reactions.
