Elton John's Husband David Furnish Clears up Comments on Sharing the Singer's Title

Age Gap

“At no point did I ever say that I personally wanted or deserved any title,” David Furnish writes.

David Furnish took to Instagram in order to clear up claims that he said he deserved a title to accompany that of his husband, Sir Elton John. Furnish was reported to have told the Daily Mail yesterday that the husband of a man who has received a title through the Queen's honors system should also receive a title.

"The reality is, if a woman is married to man with a title, she gets a title," Furnish said during the interview. "I think everybody should have the same opportunities and the same privileges and the same honors...I haven't thought about what would be an appropriate designation for the husband of a Sir."

Under current UK legislation, the wife of someone who has been knighted would become a Lady, but no such title exists for the husband of another man who has received a title.

"My conversation has been twisted and distorted in an attempt to paint me in an unflattering light. At no point did I ever say that I personally wanted or deserved any title," Furnish wrote on Instagram. "My comments were that all men and women should be treated equally in our society and that should apply to our Honours System as well."

Elton John and David Furnish became civil partners in 2005, and later had a full marriage at their home in Windsor in 2015. They have two sons, Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-Joh and Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John.
