Renate Blauel and Elton John they were married for four years, between 1984 and 1988, and now she has filed a lawsuit against her ex-husband and is seeking a restraining order. The German woman filed the documents a week ago, but it is not clear why she filed the lawsuit, but such measures usually have to do with privacy or the publication of personal materials.
Elton John divorced Renate Blauel in 1988, and she avoided the press after this episode. Elton John remarried in 2004 to David Furnish, whom he met in the early 1990s.
Renate Blauel’s lawyer acknowledged that the documents had already been submitted and that the artist’s ex-wife “hopes to resolve the matter in a private and amicable manner.” Elton John’s representatives, on the other hand, avoided commenting on the case.
Moreover, Renate Blauel was a companion to the struggle, but also worked as a sound engineer in a recording studio in London in the early 1980s, being mentioned on albums as “Rio” by Duran Duran and “Hysteria” by The Human League.
In 1983 he met Elton John, when the artist recorded the album “Two Low For Zero”, which includes the singles “I’m Still Standing” and “I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues”. The following year, the two married in Australia. In 1976, Elton John revealed to the famous Rolling Stone magazine that he was bisexual. The British artist spoke very little with Blauel after their separation, but invited her to meet his children. The artist wrote about it in his autobiography “Me”, as well as on Instagram, most recently in 2017.
“I wanted her to be a part of our lives and us, part of hers, in a way. But he refused and I didn’t force it. I have to respect how he feels “, said the musician.
