A shop owner in France has shared that veteran singer Elton John nonchalantly went on to pee in a plastic bottle, standing inside his store.

Elton John has been accused by a shop owner in France for peeing in a plastic bottle inside the store. A new report by TMZ details that Elton was out shopping in a sneaker store in France, and entered a shop looking for a public restroom. Upon not finding it, he proceeded to take a piss in a plastic bottle inside the shop itself, and even instructed his security to ‘clean up the mess.’ (Also read: Elton John attains EGOT status with Emmy win: Who are the latest 5 on the list?)

Elton pees in a plastic bottle

The report added that Elton John enquired in the sneaker store if there was a public restroom where he could relieve himself. “When Elton was told there wasn’t a toilet around, the shop owner says the singer turned to his security and asked for a bottle … then took a few steps away from other shoppers and began taking a leak in the receptacle,” read the report.

Moreover, Elton directed his security to clean up the mess after he finished peeing in the plastic bottle. This incident left the shop owner “shocked and frustrated.” The shop owner hadn’t recognized him, and went on to ask him what he did for a living. In response, the singer simply added, “I am Elton John.”
