David Furnish: Extraordinary Friendship

ELTON John’s husband David Furnish enjoyed an extraordinary friendship with a male dancer who now lives in a flat which he bought.

Film producer Furnish, 52, met Danny Williams, 33, on a club night and they were seen out together for 18 months.

They partied at the posh London home Furnish shares with Sir Elton.

And on Furnish’s 51st birthday, Danny flew first-class from London to Hawaii to celebrate with his pal.

Land Registry documents from April 2013 show Furnish paid more than £330,000 for a two-bed flat on a run-down road in South London.

He organised the interior design and furnishings in 2012, knowing Danny would move in.

Assistants at firms run by Furnish and Sir Elton even ordered the pots and pans for the pad.

Describing the relationship, a source said: “Furnish and Danny were close and went out a lot on the gay scene.

“Elton would not be there as he does not like clubbing and was often away touring and working.

“Furnish and Danny had a great time on holidays as well as in London. Danny is extremely handsome and muscular and gets a lot of attention from blokes on nights out." ...

Well, this is incredibly carefully worded.

Gay men are allowed to have (hot) gay friends, you know.

And rich queens are allowed to be generous.

Update: Mail Online playing catch-up...

I'm sure the notoriously laidback and non-litigious Sir Elton John is just laughing these stories off.
