LONDON (AP) — Elton John has testified for the defense at Kevin Spacey’s sexual assault trial as the actor’s lawyer attempted to discredit a man who claimed Spacey aggressively grabbed his crotch in a car on the way to the singer’s house.

John appeared remotely from Monaco on Monday. One of the alleged victims accused Spacey of assaulting him in 2004 or 2005. Spacey testified that Spacey only attended the annual gala he held at his Windsor home once — in 2001. John’s husband, David Furnish, earlier gave similar testimony.

Spacey has pleaded not guilty to a dozen charges that include sexual and indecent assault counts.
