Elton John is said to be suing a banker who decided he was NOT going to honor a $1.1 million bid that was made at a charity auction! Apparently at the White Tie and Tiara Ball last year, Spencer Lodge won the chance to spend a day with John and apparently Lodge isn’t holding up his end of the contract by paying up.
A source told The Daily Mirror, “Elton is not personally hounding the man and demanding the cash back but he is fully supportive of the legal proceedings to benefit the charity. The lot was a one-off opportunity to make his charity an astonishing amount of money. Organizers had actually secured another bid of $1.02 million which, of course, they would have been delighted with. The feeling is Mr Lodge was at the ball, enjoying the plush surroundings a little too enthusiastically and didn’t really know quite how much he was bidding. In the cold light of day, it appears he got cold feet and couldn’t go through with the bid. Initially there was a misunderstanding as Mr Lodge was changing lawyers but still nothing has been resolved so that’s why it has gone this far.”
Sounds like he is going to be dishing out a lot more than he bid if a lawsuit ensues.
