Elton John’s Ex-Wife Sues The Singer For Disclosing Their Relationship Details 

Sir Elton John’s ex-wife Renate Blauel claims she repeatedly begged her ex-husband not to discuss their marriage in public after changing her identity following their divorce and has brought a legal claim that her lawyer says could cost the star more than the £3million she is suing him for, MailOnline can exclusively reveal today.

Renate's quest for anonymity meant that she bought a new home in a friend's name and told most people she knew she was emigrating to her native Germany when she was in fact staying in the UK under a new name, bombshell legal documents claim.

But after renewed interest in her was sparked by the recent Rocketman biopic movie, John’s own biography and an Instagram post about his husband David Furnish she felt ‘forced to act’.
