Elton John’s former bodyguard Jeffrey Wenninger slapped him with a sexual assault lawsuit yesterday. Jeffrey claims Elton forced himself on him, grabbing his genitals on multiple occasions. He also claims he attempted to verbally and physically resist, but his boss didn’t stop.
According to TMZ
Jeffrey Wenninger says 3 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. We’ve reached out to Elton’s reps, but no response yet.
