Elton John’s ex-wife Renate Blauel has broken a three-decade silence about their marriage and launched legal proceedings against him.
While not going into details about what the suit is about, Blauel’s lawyer says she felt the need to seek a high court injunction against him, but added that she was “hoping to resolve it amicably.”
Renate and Elton met during the sessions for his 1983 album Too Low for Zero. They married in 1984 while he was on tour in Australia and later divorced in 1988.
Elton wrote about her in his memoir, Me, and the marriage was featured in his film Rocketman, both of which were released last year.
Elton has indicated he's not on bad terms with Renate, but did add that they no longer speak. Married to David Furnish since 2014, he has no comment on this story.
