Sir Elton John Called As Defense Witness In Kevin Spacey Trial

Elton John testifies for defense in Kevin Spacey trial

Sir Elton John and his husband, David Furnish, have both testified in Kevin Spacey's trial for a sex attack as defense witnesses. John appeared briefly in the London court by video link from Monaco after his husband, David Furnish, testified that Spacey was not at their yearly party in Windsor at the time the accuser said he was attacked in a car.
On Monday, Furnish was the first person to testify from Monaco via video link. Sir Elton was then called and told the court his name was "Elton Hercules John."
John and Furnish, who were both called as witnesses for the defense, each gave their own testimony from an oak-paneled office in Monaco via video link. They were called to witness Kevin Spacey's presence at the couple's annual White Tie and Tiara ball in the early 2000s and whether he had ever been to their Windsor home other than for the ball.
Furnish backed up Spacey's claim that he had only been to the event once, in 2001. Furnish said he looked at pictures from the party taken from 2001 to 2005 and found that Spacey only showed up in pictures from that one year. He said that every year, pictures were taken of all the guests.
John, who was wearing yellow-tinted glasses, a dark jacket, and a light blue open-collar shirt, said that the actor went to the party once in the early 2000s and came on a private jet from England. Furnish said that Spacey's arrival was a surprise, and he remembered it because it was a big deal.
Spacey, 63, is on trial under his full name, Kevin Spacey Fowler. He rejects sex crimes against four men, including sexual assault and indecent assault, that are said to have happened between 2001 and 2013.
At the party, Spacey bought a Mini Cooper and spent the night. Spacey said he spent the most money "ever" on that type of car, and he kept it in John's garage until he could get it later.
The accused victim said he might have gotten the year wrong, but he would never forget what happened because it made him so scared that he almost crashed his car while he was driving.
But the timeline is important because the man claimed that Spacey had fondled him for several years starting in the early 2000s. He said that the event was the last time. He said he would hit the star and then stay away from him.
Spacey said they were friends and had some romantic contact, but the man was straight, so the star respected his wishes not to go further. He said he was crushed when he found out the man had told the police about him. He said the man had "reimagined" what had been mutual touching.
Spacey was called a "sexual bully" when the trial started last month. He cried in court as he listened to 10 character references from family and friends in the theater and film industries, including words from the son of late actor Jack Lemmon and House star Robert Sean Leonard.

Conclusion

Sir Elton John and his husband, David Furnish, have both testified in Kevin Spacey's trial as witnesses for the defense. Elton John told a court that Kevin Spacey came to his house by private jet for a charity ball and stayed the night.
John, who is 76 years old, was called as a witness for the defense in Spacey's trial. On Monday, he spoke to the Southwark County court via video link from Monaco. Spacey has been accused of sexual assault and indecent assault against four men in their 20s and 30s between 2001 and 2013. He has denied all of the charges against him.
