Elton John's wife Renate Blauel took an overdose three days into their St Tropez honeymoon

Sir Elton John's wife Renate Blauel tried to kill herself after he told her their marriage wasn't working only three days into their St Tropez honeymoon, bombshell court documents revealed today.

The German recording engineer, who was married to Sir Elton between 1984 and 1988, claimed she took an overdose of Valium tablets after he told her he wanted her to leave the honeymoon and go home.

She was rushed to hospital to have her stomach pumped and claims that Sir Elton, who she had married less than six months earlier, did not even visit her during her stay before having her driven straight to the airport with her luggage from the hospital door.

The claims emerged today in documents filed at the High Court in London by 67-year-old Ms Blauel as part of her £3million damages claim against Sir Elton, 73, over his public discussion of their marriage.

However Sir Elton has hit back, with his legal counsel Jenny Afia telling MailOnline today that the 'true purpose' of Ms Blauel's claim was 'to extract a large sum of money from Elton and tarnish his name publicly with falsehoods'.

The former couple had allegedly agreed not to discuss their marriage in public following their split, with Ms Blauel saying she had sought to shed her identity as a rock wife and live a quiet life in privacy.
