Elton And David's Certificate is Out

Friday 30 December 2005 @ 17:02 - GMT

Elton's civil partnership certificate recording his "wedding" to his boyfriend has been released.

The document reveals the pop star's middle name is Hercules - although it was changed by deed poll from his original Reginald Kenneth Dwight.

His occupation is recorded as musician while David Furnish's is stated as film maker.

The mothers of both men - Sheila Farebrother, a retired civil servant, and Gladys Furnish, a retired housewife - are named as official witnesses.

And under the heading "condition", the certificate states for Sir Elton "previous marriage dissolved", while his partner is listed as single.

The pop star married German recording engineer Renate Blauel on Valentine's Day 1984 but later divorced.
