Elton John has a diva moment as he throws his $4,000 Gucci handbag off his private jet… after telling security at his Perth concert to ‘f**k off’

Sir Elton John appeared to throw a tantrum on Monday, just minutes after arriving at Sydney Airport on his private jet.

The 72-year-old British singer was seen hurling his $4,000 Gucci handbag out of the plane before stomping over to an Audi Q7 parked on the runway.

A member of Elton’s entourage caught the luxury bag and loaded it into the back vehicle before the group drove away. 

Not again! Sir Elton John appeared to throw a tantrum on Monday, just moments after arriving into Sydney Airport on his private jet 

Elton showed off his signature flamboyant style in a metallic tracksuit and concealed his gaze behind tinted glasses. 

It comes after Elton swore at two security guards while performing at Perth’s HBF Park Stadium on Saturday.

He called the men ‘c**ts’ and ‘turds’ as they tried to remove a woman from the venue.

Footage from the concert showed Elton shouting from the stage: ‘Hey, you two security guards with the girl… f**k off!’

‘Let her up here immediately… come on, you c**ts!’ he added.  

While thousands of fans gasped at Elton’s obscene language, many others could be heard cheering and clapping in the video.

Fans praised Elton on Twitter as a ‘legend’ for coming to the defence of the woman.

‘We all applauded Elton [for] calling out overly aggressive behaviour by two men towards a female,’ one concertgoer wrote.

But some people didn’t approve of his bad language, with one tweeting: ‘Not good enough really for someone of his standing. There has to be a line drawn somewhere.’

It’s unclear why the woman was being removed from the venue.

It’s not the first time the flamboyant performer has sworn on stage. 

In March last year, Elton swore at a fan who had touched him while he was performing in Las Vegas and later stormed off.

And in 2015, he compared security at Kingsholm Stadium in Gloucester, England to Adolf Hitler due to their aggressive crowd management.
