Elton John lends celebrity support to Kevin Spacey at the actor’s sexual assault trial

July 17, 2023

Furnish said he had reviewed photographs taken at the party from 2001 to 2005 and Spacey only appeared in images that one year. He also confirmed that Spacey bought a Mini Cooper at the auction held that night for the Elton John AIDS Foundation. The timeline, however, is important because the man testified that Spacey had fondled him over several years beginning in the early 2000s. John was the final witness to testify in the trial that entered its fourth week in Southwark Crown Court. It’s the second time the “Rocket Man” star and Furnish have made appearances in a London courtroom this year.
