Elton John Takes the Stand in Defense at Spacey Sex Assault Trial

British rock star Elton John testified as a witness for the defence on Monday in the sexual assault trial of Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey. The Oscar winner is facing 12 charges, including indecent assault, relating to four men between 2001 and 2013. John and his husband David Furnish appeared via video link from Monaco to answer questions about Spacey attending a fundraising ball at their home in Windsor.

One of the alleged victims claimed that Spacey sexually assaulted him while he was driving the actor to the event. He said that Spacey grabbed him so hard that they nearly veered off the road. Spacey, however, denied the incident ever occurred. He stated that there was mutual flirtation between them but denied any violent or aggressive behavior.

During cross-examination by the prosecution, Elton John confirmed that he remembered Spacey attending the ball in the early 2000s. He said Spacey arrived in a private jet and stayed at their home overnight after the event. David Furnish also testified, confirming that Spacey was present at the social event. He described his excitement at having an Oscar-winning actor attend the ball.

Spacey became emotional as character statements from friends and family were read in court. Robert Sean Leonard, known for his role in “House,” described Spacey as positive, supportive, and respectful. Chris Lemmon, son of actor Jack Lemmon, called Spacey “like another son” to his father.

Spacey is a two-time Academy Award winner and served as the artistic director of London’s Old Vic theatre. The trial continues with the defence presenting its case.
