'Unapproachable' Elton Stories Dismissed

SIR ELTON JOHN's boyfriend DAVID FURNISH has blasted reports the singer refused to greet guests at their annual White Tie And Tiara party in Windsor, England on Tuesday (21JUN05).

Furnish has dismissed newspaper stories that alleged those who attended the event were instructed to only talk to the ROCKET MAN star if he approached them first.

Furnish says, "The reality is that we go out of our way to try to greet every guest at our fund-raising events personally.

"We spend two hours in the gardens during the cocktails shaking hands and greeting guests.

"During dinner, we walk around the marquee and try to speak to every table to make sure everyone is happy.

"Neither of us have time to eat our meals because we are so busy saying 'hello' to everyone.

"Attempting to paint Elton as some sort of trumped-up celebrity who is above looking after people who support our charity - the ELTON JOHN AIDS FOUNDATION - is deeply, deeply offensive."
