A sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Sir Elton John by his former bodyguard has been dropped.

In legal papers filed in March, Jeffrey Wenninger accused the singer of making sexually suggestive comments towards him and groping him.

A representative for Sir Elton confirmed: "The case was withdrawn, with no payment made."

Mr Wenninger, a Los Angeles policeman, worked for the singer from 2002 to 2014.

He had accused Sir Elton of three separate incidents - all of which he claimed occurred in the final year he worked for the singer.

Sir Elton's legal team previously described his claims as "baseless".
