Most people have probably forgotten, that for four years back in the 1980’s, Sir Elton John was married to Renate Blauel.
Now, after decades in the background, the German-born sound engineer is seeking an injunction against the73-year old music legend, although it’s not clear what brought the action about or what’s at the centre of the dispute.
Blauel has keep a low profile since the marriage ended in 1988 and never talked about Elton, who later came out as gay, married Scarborough-born David Furnish and had two sons with him.
Bluel’s lawyer says his client hopes to resolve the matter privately and amicably.
