Rumors have swirled since 1969 that Yoko Ono caused the Beatles break up. But the former wife of John Lennon may finally be off the hook.
Despite decades of feuding, Sir Paul McCartney has recently come to Ono’s defense to set the record straight.
“She certainly didn’t break the group up. I don’t think you can blame her for anything,” he said in an interview, which first aired on the Al Jazeera English TV channel in November, adding that Lennon was “definitely going to leave.”
McCartney even credited his former band mate’s widow for her creative inspiration, which led to Lennon writing the legendary tune “Imagine.”
