Elton John Reveals Richard Gere and Sylvester Stallone Fought Over Princess Diana
Elton John is finally spilling all the secrets he can because he just can’t hold them in anymore. According to the ‘Candle in the Wind’ singer, Richard Gere and Sylvester Stallone nearly got in a fight over his great friend Diana, Princess of Wales!
The incident took place at a dinner party given by John and David Furnish for Walt Disney Studios Chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg who had recently commissioned Sir Elton John to write the music for The Lion King. In his new memoir, Me: Elton John Official Autobiography, he writes how actor Richard Gere had just split from Cindy Crawford and Princess Diana has just split from Prince Charles, which left the door wide open for new relationships.
The two were reportedly having a deep deep conversation in front of the fireplace, while the hunky Hollywood favorite Sylvester Stallone was looking over in a jealous rage. When the rest of the guests went to sit down for dinner, Stallone and Gere reportedly stayed behind to “settle their differences” over the Princess by having a literal fistfight.
After dinner, the Pretty Woman superstar and Diana (charming as ever) resumed their flirting which promoted in Stallone storming out of the room. According to John, Stallone angrily stated, “I never would have come if I’d known Prince f- -kin’ Charming was gonna be here. If I’d wanted her, I would’ve taken her!” All while this was happening, Princess Diana was “completely unruffled,” because, well, I’m sure she was used to men daydreaming about her all the time.
There still isn't word if the two ended up falling out or not, but we can understand why they fought in the first place. I wonder if Queen Elizabeth or the rest of the Royal Family knows about this? Elton John and Princess Diana were really close friends, so sure, it can definitely be true. Who would you choose, Sylvester Stallone or Richard Gere? Meghan Markle, can we get an inside source?
Princess Diana, who was the first wife of Prince Charles and mother to Prince William and Prince Harry, tragically died in a car crash in Paris while the driver was fleeing paparazzi'. Her activism and glamour made her an international icon and became known for her involvement with the Aids Foundation.
