SIR Elton John is threatening to boycott London's top restaurant - after falling out with staff for failing to keep over-enthusiastic fans at bay as he left the eatery.

The ROCKET MAN singer is furious with the doorman at THE IVY for failing to keep fans back as he left the restaurant, and he's now refusing to return to the popular celebrity haunt.

A source says, "The doorman was not on hand to control photographers and fans outside and Elton was besieged. Flashes were going off and there was a bit of a scrum.

"Elton was furious he had to go through that. He just wanted a quiet night out with his friends."
