Prince Harry and Elton John believe their phones were tapped and personal information stolen. They’ve banded together to sue a major news organization they believe is to blame, although the organization categorically denies the allegations.

The Duke and the British rock star are among those suing Associated Newspapers, alleging that the company behind the Daily Mail and other publications used investigators to place listening devices in people’s homes and vehicles and paid police officers to gather sensitive information.

According to reports, the group also accuses the Daily Mail’s publisher of listening in on phone calls, impersonating hospital workers to access medical records, and gaining unauthorized access to bank accounts and cash.

A spokeswoman for the company stated that they are categorically disputing these ridiculous charges, which appear to be nothing more than a pre-planned and concerted attempt to drag the Mail titles into the phone hacking crisis involving items dating back up to 30 years.

According to the representative, “these unfounded and extremely defamatory allegations appear to be nothing more than a fishing expedition by claimants and their attorneys, some of whom have already pursued suits elsewhere.”

Elton John’s husband and producer David Furnish, Elizabeth Hurley, Sadie Frost, and Baroness Doreen Lawrence, the mother of an infamously slain Black British adolescent, are the other alleged defendants. According to a statement, the organisation seeks to expose the truth and hold journalists accountable.

Meanwhile, Britney Spears and Elton John’s “Hold Me Closer” music video is a vibrant, nearly four-minute-long collection of interpretive dance sequences. It was only a week ago that it was released.

Spears and John, on the other hand, do not appear on this album. Tanu Muino directed the music video, as well as Harry Styles’ “As It Was” and Lil Nas X’s “Montero” and several other notable pop music videos from the last two years.

The music video begins in Mexico City with dancers dressed in vibrant blue and yellow garbs who move fluidly as a reflection of human embrace, beautifully capturing an incalculable feeling of intimacy sorely lacking in the world due to recent turmoil and chaos, as stated in the video’s official press release.
