John Lennon died thinking aliens exist, according to the late beatle's psychic friend, Uri Geller.

Geller has revealed Lennon told him he'd had a late-night visit from extra-terrestrials a year before he was shot dead in December, 1980.

The psychic says, "John told me, 'I was asleep in my bed with YOKO (ONO), at home in the Dakota. Suddenly, I wasn't asleep because there was this blazing light around the door.'"

Geller claims Lennon was confronted by four aliens with "big bug eyes" when he opened the door and they gave him a large "egg-shaped object", which the rock star believed to be his ticket to outer-space.
