Sir Elton John In Massive Trouble Due To Memoir, Biopic

Sir Elton John In Massive Trouble Due To Memoir, Biopic”

Elton John married Renate Blauel in 1984.

In papers filed to the High Court seen by the PA news agency, the pair signed a contract which included a clause preventing either of them from discussing their marriage or the reasons for their separation.

That being said, Sir Elton invited her to meet his children because he "wanted her to be part of our lives and us part of hers, in some way".

In the memoir, Elton reflected on the failed marriage, writing: "It was the right thing to do, but it was a awful feeling". Now, Blauel's legal team has disclosed the nature of the legal action, and it could prove costly to Sir Elton John.

Elton and Renate were married for four years before the singer-songwriter filed for divorce in 1988 when he came out as gay. He also claims that John refused to remove the passages about her in his book when she asked him to, and didn't ask her for permission to include her in Rocketman.

Blauel is reportedly asking for a £3 million payout, despite rumours that she received between £5 million and £10 million when she divorced John.

Moreover, these revelations triggered longstanding mental health problems for Blauel as well.

Sir Elton John's fortune is estimated to be worth approximately £390 million ($A697 milion).

Her lawyer, Yisrael Hiller, told the BBC that Sir Elton had "ignored" his promise to keep the details of their marriage private.

"In her mind, the film seeks to portray their marriage as a sham, which she wholeheartedly disputes and considers a false and disrespectful portrayal of their time together".

Her claims contradict those made by Elton, 73, who said in his memoir, Me, published earlier this year, that he didn't want children until he met his husband David.

He wrote: "I'd broken the heart of someone I loved and who loved me unconditionally, someone I couldn't fault in any way". Despite all of the pain, there was no acrimony involved in any way.

"The Claimant and Defendant are depicted, possibly on their wedding night, as leaving separate rooms, suggesting that they slept in separate bedrooms and thereby implying a general lack of physical intimacy between them", the documents read about one particular scene in the film.

A source close to Elton has said: "Elton is shocked and saddened by Renate's claim, especially as he has only ever praised her publicly".
