Elton John pays for ex- fiancé’s knee surgery

Elton John may have ended his engagement to former fiancé Linda Hannon, but he is making up for it now by paying for her knee surgery.

The two had not been in contact since the split. Hannon, however, reached out to John, after learning that she needed a knee replacement, that would require her taking five weeks off from work to recover. She couldn’t afford to miss that much of work, so she called her ex for a favor. Hannon tried to reach out herself but received no response. She then turned to the “Mirror” for help, and she received a response almost immediately that John would be happy to help.

A source close to John said, “When Elton heard about Linda’s plight, he didn’t hesitate for a second to help out. He remembers how good she was 50 years ago, when he and Bernie needed the support, and is really pleased to be able to help her in her hour of need.”

Hannon is “thrilled to bits” that her ex has offered to help her situation.
