Sir Elton John to testify in Kevin Spacey sexual assault trial

Sir Elton John has been called as a defense witness in Kevin Spacey’s trial at Southwark Crown Court.

The 76-year-old and her husband David Furnish will testify via video link from Monaco.

Spacey, an Oscar-winning actor, is defending 12 sexual abuse charges at Southwark Crown Court against four men between 2001 and 2013.

The defendant, on trial under his full name Kevin Spacey Fowler, was branded a ‘sex bully’ when proceedings began last month.

He pleaded not guilty in January to three counts of indecent assault, three counts of sexual assault and one count of inducing a person to engage in sexual activity without their consent.

The two-time Oscar winner also denied four other counts of sexual assault and one count of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without their consent.

The trial continues.
