It was in 2014 when Elton John got hitched to the love of his life, David Furnish. When it comes to their relationship, it was started back in 1993. A few years later, the former one popped up the question at a dinner party. The singer shared, “I was attracted to David immediately. He was very well-dressed and very shy. The next night we had dinner. After it, we consummated our relationship. We fell in love very quickly.”

It was in 2005 when the duo entered into a civil partnership. After a few years, more precisely in 2010, Elton John and David Furnish welcomed their first child through surrogacy. They named him Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John. Again, in 2013, they got blessed with another child, Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John, via the same process.

Elton John and Renate Blauel

It was at the beginning of 1983 when Elton John met Renate Blauel for the very first time. The singer was then finishing his album, Too Low For Zero. However, it was Elton who took the initiative and proposed to her while having dinner at an Indian restaurant. On very short notice, they tied the knot, more specifically in 1984. It was in 1988 when they decided to part ways. The reason has been cited as amicable, but it was Elton who said that he was living a lie being with her. He wanted to end their marriage, and for this, Renate was reported to have attempted suicide when they were on their honeymoon.

Well, everything happens for a good reason. Elton John and Renate Blauel weren’t meant to be together, and thus, it ended. Best Wishes to the singer for the upcoming days of his career. Hoping to come across more of Elton John’s notable works shortly.
