Elton John and his ex-wife, Renate Blauel, have settled a lawsuit Blauel filed back in June regarding the singer violating the terms of their divorce.

Per BBC News, the lawsuit between John and Blauel was “settled amicably.” The terms of the settlement were not released

John and Blauel also had the following joint statement released:

“The parties are happy to announce that they have resolved this case, in a way that acknowledges Renate’s need for privacy. For her part, Renate acknowledges that Elton has acted in a dignified and respectful way towards her in the last 30 years and has been always happy to help her. They will not be discussing each other, or their marriage, in future and will be making no further comment about the case.”

Blauel originally sought £3 million ($3.8 million USD) from John claiming he violated the terms of their divorce 32 years ago by writing about their marriage in his 2019 memoir Me.

John and Blauel married in 1984 and divorced in 1988.
