The Beatles - John Lennon's Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star Defaced

The Beatles legend John Lennon's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was defaced at the weekend (05-06Oct13).

The Imagine icon's star, which lies next to Los Angeles' iconic Capitol Records building, was covered in graffiti drawn in marker pen, including a spotted toadstool, and the phrases 'I love you' and 'Blackbird... Rain was here.'

Ana Martinez of the Hollywood Walk of Fame organisation tells The Hollywood Reporter she determined to catch the culprits, saying, "We don't mess around. I think Capitol is looking into seeing if there's any video (of the crime). They're registered state landmarks. We've had people destroy stars, cracking or prying out parts of the stars, and they do go to jail and they have to pay back for the repairs."

The graffiti was removed by Monday (07Oct13) morning, just two days before a special event will be held at the landmark to honour what would have been Lennon's 73rd birthday on 9 October (13).
