Sir Elton John has opened up about the bullying he endured after shooting to fame, alleging he was tormented by three "very important people" in his professional life.

The singer refuses to name those involved, but he claims to have suffered nasty abuse at the hands of unscrupulous characters who took advantage of the superstar's shyness.

He tells E! News, "It was about control and them being able to keep me under their thumb. And I was the perfect candidate for it. Even though I was famous and a big deal, it doesn't matter, it's who you are underneath that, and I was always kind of shy and intimidated...

"One was violent and the other two were mentally violent. They were very important people in my life. They were important people in my career and and in my personal life."

The Rocket Man kept his suffering hidden for a long time, but he goes on to urge anyone in a similar situation to speak out, because bullying does not just happen in the schoolyard - it also affects adults.

He adds, "Speak out, speak out. Snitch on them. Try to defend yourself, not like me, who hid it and thought it was OK to just go on like it."
