Lennon's Son Reignites Feud With Yoko Ono

JOHN LENNON's eldest son JULIAN has reignited his public feud with his father's widow YOKO ONO by accusing her of trying to control the former BEATLE's legacy.

Lennon was attending a book launch to publicise his mother CYNTHIA's memoirs of marriage to the IMAGINE hitmaker when he launched his attack.

And he saved his fiercest criticism for her contribution to the critically-panned Broadway musical LENNON.

He says, "I haven't seen it but I read some reviews and thought, what a mess.

"The way she describes his life to the world is in connection with her."

Musician Julian also claims the artist has denied him some of his father's most treasured possessions, as well as the domain name www.johnlennon.com for which he battled her in court.

Dear Julian, I Just Thought all those years you were offered "YOUR FATHERS" POSSESSIONS that was the least that "B#&^*" could Have given you!!!! SINCE SHE, JUST HAD TO SPLIT UP The BeaTles and Split Up your MUM and Dad & reck your home life! "HEY JUDE" things will get better if you give it a chance.... I know it must hurt like HELL! FIGHT like HELL if you must...go for it...don't roll over, but, don't let it eat at YOU either, it can eat you up inside and, you are,far too beautiful to let this cause self destruction...it ate at your Father/remember what you are fighting old memories, I want to tell you this when my DAD died suddenly I was 17 yrs old and things were not always good... I was told to hold on to the good memories only...so when I am sad I find my "HAPPY THOUGHTS" she might sell everything and say everything but she can't take you thoughts "JULIAN" {FIND YOUR HAPPY THOUGHTS AND HANG ON THOSE ARE YOURS AND JUST YOURS} ;0) Angie in Lexington, VA

john was a human being, a gifted songwriter and someone with hopes and dreams like all the rest of us.we treat him like he is a god, for that we must take some responsibility for the adulation that we have poured over him in life and death.for he was only a man, something a lot of us tend to forget, i think his biggest success was in making us see that if we work very hard, have determination and belief in ourselves, we can set and reach our goals like he did, to defame yoko ono no matter how we feel about her is to ignore everything that john tried to communicate to us.john loved yoko and she loved him, to forgive is bliss.and lady ^^^ you need to live your own life, john is dead we have his songs and his memory thats it!i'm sure that if he was reaching "over" he wouldnt be talking to some nutter he dosnt know, he would be communicating to his loved ones don't you think?like john said we are our own god, after all one of his biggest fans took him away from us because he couldn't seperate the man from the myth.all you need is love

I would like to remind the fans of John Lennon that all who know the truth is that he was getting Instant KARMA from his death. He was not meant to live a long life. He knew it. I knew it. Ive known of his soul and reached out to him. Hes listened to me. He sends me songs on the radio.If anybody truly believes in John's Spirit, they would have voted George Bush out of office. America was a bad place for him to live. The only good thing we had was when Jimmy Carter was in office at the last years of his life. Many people were jealous of John Lennon. John knew his genius was going to cost him.It was too bad he found his soul trapped by fame,and people who didnt respect him like Yoko Ono.He will forever be loved, but his love was not meant for the fans. He preached peace, but only to shadow the real demons life had left him. Ill always respect his work.But I will submit to the capitalism he bought into through all his works Yoko has peddled over the years. He should have donated to the poor if he believed in Imagine. All that matters, is that people must remember only God has control of our destiny,not money fame or friends. I will forever hope that God has forgiven John of all his sins cause John helped us cope with our pain by sharing many of his gifts so he will forever be in our hearts. I hope that Julian can make peace with himself as well and know John is a shining example of what God wants us to be,an example of peace and hope. I pray we can just learn these lessons and live more like the poor. The poor understand,yet will never be recognized like John Lennon in this life for their contributions are their souls in this world, similiar to John.The meek shall inherit the earth! Let that be a reminder!
