73-year-old Sir Elton John is suing his ex-wife. The man violated the rules of the contract drawn up during the divorce, so he will be obliged to pay Renate Blauer 3 million pounds
The bottom line is very simple, it turns out that during the divorce, Elton and Renata entered into a divorce contract. By law, ex-spouses are not allowed to talk about each other in public, John broke this rule. He recently presented his autobiographical film "The Rocketman", in which Renata's character was present, and also released a memoir, which also featured her name.
John and Blauer were married for only four years, and the divorce agreement was signed in 1988. From that moment, Renata fully complied with the terms of their contract, did not give interviews and did not name the true reason for their divorce. And Sir Elton John, for some reason, decided to break this agreement. Perhaps the profit from the deed will be much more than the 3 million compensation that he will now have to pay.
In a statement, Renata Blauer explained that she never wanted her persona to be public. That is, after the divorce, she needed only one thing - to have a quiet life, without paparazzi and interviews. Now, after the release of the documentary and memoirs, the woman is constantly harassed by journalists. Moreover, Elton's actions led to the fact that Renata's new family suffered. Because of this, a woman experiences great mental problems.
In addition to monetary compensation, Renata asks the human rights authorities to impose a court arrest on Elton John. The ex-wife wants any other details of their married life never to surface again.
Elton John's lawyers are currently trying to defend the interests of their client. They argue that there is no musician's fault. All data used in the book and film is publicly available. The divorce agreement deals only with the personal and confidential topics of the married life of Elton and Renata.
