British Singer Elton John Denies Sexual Molestation By LA Cop

Sir Elton John has denied claims he repeatedly groped a decorated police officer who served in his security detail.
Jeffrey Wenninger, a captain in the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), has accused the singer of groping him and making sexually suggestive comments towards him.
In legal papers filed in the US on Monday, the policeman said he received unwelcome attention from the married star in 2014.
Sir Elton issued a strongly-worded denial, saying the allegations were driven by money.

The incidents escalated “in frequency and intensity” after 2010, the lawsuit states, adding: “At no time did plaintiff consent to defendant Elton John touching him in this offensive manner, or in any other manner.”
The policeman worked for Sir Elton while off-duty through a private company that he has also launched legal action against, alleging he was improperly removed from working with the star in September 2014.
According to Mr Wenninger, who is a recipient of the LAPD’s Medal of Valour, he was effectively fired from Sir Elton’s security detail because he had reported a fellow officer for overtime theft.
