Jeffrey Wenninger, an LAPD officer who spent multiple years doing off-duty security work for Elton John and even received the medal of valor, is now suing the pop legend for sexual harassment and battery, according to The Los Angeles times. Wenninger claims that John touched him inappropriately and made suggestive comments between 2002 and 2014, while stating that those incidents escalated frequently and intensely after 2010. Comments like "Get your todger out," "Say hello to Uncle Elton," "You gorgeous thing you," and "You have so many gay genes in you, they just haven't met up yet," were enough to sue his former employer. He says that he'd try to resist but it wouldn't do any good.

Elton John's attorney, Orin Snyder said: "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." Wenninger also made a request to work with Elton John again in 2014 but was denied.
