Walk riles Elton
The singer, who both opened and closed the musical tribute to the late Diana, Princess of Wales, exploded into a furious profanity-laced rant at police when they demanded that he ditch his car and walk back into the venue as part of tight security measures, according to London’s Evening Standard newspaper.
A spokesman for Mr. John, however, defended the 60-year-old pop star.
“He had been there for 10 hours, performed a brilliant set, and it’s a shame that people are concentrating on one petty moment,” the spokesman was quoted as saying.
“You can’t expect Elton to start walking towards Wembley as 60,000 people are leaving. That’s a security risk in itself.”
For security reasons, all vehicles were barred from within a 50-yard radius of the arena, the Evening Standard said.
A police spokeswoman says Mr. John was targeted because his car was driving down a route reserved for pedestrians.
“We can confirm a vehicle was stopped when it left Wembley Stadium following the Diana memorial concert,” she said.
Flak defends Diaz
At least, not if Miss Diaz’s publicist can help it.
Miss Sarantakos‘ claims that Miss Diaz had an adulterous relationship with her husband of five years are unfounded, Miss Diaz’s publicist said Monday, Newsday.com reports. Not only are the actress and Mr. Angel no longer dating, Miss Diaz’s representative Brad Cafarelli said, but Mr. Angel and his wife had been separated for more than a year when the two were first spotted smooching in Las Vegas.View Entire Story
