Mccartney Denies 'Gay Lennon' Claims

LATEST: SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has furiously dismissed claims his former BEATLES bandmate JOHN LENNON wanted a gay relationship with him.
Author Philip Norman claims in a new biography, John Lennon: The Life, that the late star lusted over MCCartney.
But the singer is adamant Lennon did not have homosexual tendencies- but admits they often shared a bed.
MCCartney says, "I don't think (the gay claims) are true. John never ever tried anything, I slept with him a million times.
"I've seen him on tour roaring drunk, out of his mind in the early days before he sobered up and went to rehab. Roaring drunk and it was always with a female.
"If you've got a little gay tendency and your roaring drunk I'd have caught him once."

I think you should let the dead rest in peace. John Lennon I think wasn't gay and you should stop speading that bad rumor around. I am glad that Paul step up and denies this claim.
