Elton Sues Banker Who Reneged On Donation To AIDS Charity

Elton Sues Banker Who Reneged On Donation To AIDS Charity


A man who pledged £700,000 (or about US$1 million) for the Elton John AIDS Foundation is tied up in a legal battle with the music icon after failing to pay up.

Dubai-based Spencer Lodge pledged the donation in exchange for a "date" with John and his partner David Furnish, the Daily Mail reports. But the date, which was supposed to take place at John's White Tie and Tiara Ball, never occurred. Lodge has been asked by several supporters to pony up the donation anyway, but he has failed to hand over the funds.

Earlier this month, John issued a writ on behalf of his foundation with a high court, seeking the money that was pledged.
