Elton libel cash goes to Aids.

Sir Elton John accepted pounds 100,000 libel damages from the Daily Mail in the High Court yesterday over allegations that he issued a "bizarre and absurd edict" to guests at his annual charity ball ordering them not to approach him during the event.

The star's solicitor-advocate Nigel Tait told Mr Justice Eady inthe High Court: "In fact, not only was no such edict issued at all, Sir Elton greets each guest as they arrive." Sir Elton is donating the damages to the Elton John Aids Foundations.
