EX-WIFE SUES TO MUZ­ZLE EL­TON!

Globe - - BREAKING NEWS -

EL­TON JOHN’S ex-wife, Re­nate

Blauel, is try­ing to stop

the Rock­et­man from blab­bing

about their four-year

mar­riage that ended when

he came out of the closet.

The pair had signed a nondis­clo­sure

pact to “never

dis­cuss the in­ti­mate de­tails

of their mar­riage,” which

lasted from 1984 to 1988,

and she’s gone to a Bri­tish

court de­mand­ing an in­junc­tion

against parts of his

mem­oir, Me El­ton John.

Once a se­ri­ous co­caine

abuser, El­ton later ex­plained

he was in a funk over split­ting

from a boyfriend and a

junkie when he wed Re­nate,

say­ing: “A drug ad­dict thinks

like this: ‘I’ve had enough

boyfriends, and that’s not

made me happy, so I’ll have

a wife — that will change

ev­ery­thing.’

“And I loved Re­nate, but

you know, it is one of the

things I re­gret most in my

life, hurt­ing her.”
