Renate Blauel Biography
(German Sound Engineer, Music Producer, and Ex-Wife of Composer Sir Elton John)
Birthday: March 1, 1953 (Pisces)
Born In: Berlin, Germany
Renate Ruth Margot Blauel is a German sound engineer and music producer. She is the first and only wife of English singer, pianist, and composer Sir Elton John. Little to no information is available on her family and early life. A native of Berlin, she became a renowned sound engineer and music producer in the years leading up to her marriage to John and had worked with the likes of Mike Oldfield, Piet Veerman and The New Cats, The Human League, and The Blues Band. She also once worked as an air stewardess. She married John on the Valentine’s Day in 1984 in a lavish ceremony. At the time, John had been openly bisexual for quite a few years and their wedding was treated as a cover-up for his homosexuality by most people in the media. After four years, they divorced amicably and Sir Elton found the courage to tell the world that he is gay. Since then, Blauel has led a relatively secluded life. In the early 2000s, she returned to Germany to take care of her ageing parents.
