Elton John’s temper hit the boiling point Monday night when he went for dinner at Craig’s in West Hollywood Monday night.

With the paparazzi waiting as his SUV drove up, Elton got out and told them, “Why don’t you just [bleep] off!” He then stumbled and said, “[Bleeping C-word] followed by another “[Bleep] off!”

Among those also dining there that night were the Osbournes, who went there following watching their son Jack tear it up on Dancing With the Stars.
