The singer has made a huge contribution to music over the years and is soon about to release his memoir. Over the years, Elton John has had the privilege to perform at several notable occasions hosted at Buckingham Palace. As Elton is coming up with his autobiography, the singer recently revealed about a throwback party he once organized where Richard Gere and Sylvester Stallone came to blows over Princess Diana.
Elton John has won several accolades and is a five-time Grammy awards winner for his singing and music. John will soon be releasing his autobiography and recently opened about a throwback party he once organized which saw several Hollywood celebrities and other renowned personalities. During a recent interview about the forthcoming memoir titled ‘Me,’ the singer revealed to the Daily Mail about the London party which he organized for former Walt Disney Studios chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg which saw actor Richard Gere and Sylvester Stallone losing their cool over Princess Diana who marked her presence at the party.
Explaining the time Princess Diana’s separation from Prince Charles, while Richard Gere had just ended his relationship with Cindy Crawford, Elton John in his memoir wrote about how Richard Gere and Diana were very engaged with each other. He further mentioned how while the rest of the room chatted he couldn’t help but notice the strange atmosphere created in the room. Elton further went on to add how Diana and Richard’s newly blossoming friendship was not acceptable to Sylvester Stallone at that time and he thought that Stallone might have turned up at the party with the fast intention of picking Diana and only found his evening ruined with Diana and Gere’s friendship.

As the party dinner saw Richard Gere and Stallone’s absence, John’s husband David Furnish discovered later that they were squaring up to each other and were apparently settling their differences over Princess Diana by having a fistfight. The singer later revealed that although his husband Furnish was able to break things up, Elton John noted the tension between Stallone, Gere, and Diana for the rest of the evening.
Elton John also mentioned in his autobiography about how Diana and Richard Gere were back to their position in front of the fire, while Sylvester stormed off home. Meanwhile, during all this, Richard Gere yelled aloud saying he would have never come if he knew, "Prince f--n' Charming was gonna be here'," talking about Sylvester Stallone.
In the meantime, Elton John’s autobiography brings up many other revelations about his close friends and is set to be published on October 15 this year.
