Yoko Ono Blames Beatles Split On Paul McCartney?

| Filed under: Music MinutePaul McCartney

Yoko Ono, the woman who is notoriously blamed for the breakup of The Beatles, is adamant that she did NOT cause the band's fallout…

But Paul McCartney's selfishness did?!

In a recently unearthed 1987 interview, Mz. Ono shares:

"The Beatles were getting very independent. Each one of them [was] getting independent. John, in fact, was not the first who wanted to leave the Beatles. [We saw] Ringo [Starr] one night with Maureen [Starkey Tigrett], and he came to John and me and said he wanted to leave. George [Harrison] was next, and then John. Paul [McCartney] was the only one trying to hold the Beatles together. But the other three thought Paul would hold the Beatles together as his band. They were getting to be like Paul's band, which they didn't like."

OK, so Yoko isn't exactly saying it was Paul's fault, she seems to insinuate that his tight grip on the band was just one out of a myriad of reasons for the split.

Apparently, the band's end also caused issues in Yoko's relationship with John Lennon, as he apparently expected her to fill the whole that was left gaping after the breakup!

We can't even imagine what it must be like to realize that the band with whom you've experienced such success with — a four-way relationship you've had for SO long — is tearing at the seams.

So sad!

    "whole" ???
    Anyway Paul himself RECENTLY stated Yoko was NOT the reason the Beatles split. Get off her back. Moron.

    She's batshit crazy, and always has been. She's always disliked Paul since he refused her nutter groupie attention. She was stalking him and he dissed her, so she turned to the very married John who fell for the very domineering psycho for some reason only God knows.

    Perez, she is saying the exact opposite. You are so out of it. Can you read? You post a headline to get attention and it has nothing to do with the story. Yoko is just saying that the other Beatles wanted to go their own seperate ways and Paul was trying to hang on to the Beatles as a group. Sounds like he was trying to be in charge and be the center of it all and they wanted their own time to shine.

    I always said, not that anyone cared, that Yoko was a scape goat for underlying problems. Chicks come and go, I highly doubt one would be the end all for the group. However when you get that many creative people together who have their own ideas of what they want to do then try to get them all on the same page, I'm sure it got tiring. It's like a class project, no one wants to listen to each others ideas because they think their own are good. I'm sure she was some contribution to tensions though, with how in love John was with her, I'm sure it was annoying having guy time with his chick always hanging around.

    The Beatles had run their course. Paul McCartney wanted a band that would tour and record and the rest of the guys were done — this is well-known and Yoko's comments reflect exactly that. The headline of this story is the only element here that takes the truth and runs off in the exact opposite direction. Hmmmm … has someone at perezhilton.com been hitting the sauce a little too hard? And why is this even a story? This band disbanded in 1969!

    Everyone knows (including the band) that she was the spark that broke the beatles up (on top of other issues).

    She is irrelevant now that their is no "beatles", and she has all johns $$$, go away already. no one liked her then, no one likes her now.

    She's such a professional widow and she loves it.

    I remember when this happened, everyone hated Yoko Ono. I still do not care for her, but I was always more of a Stones fan (liked the Beachboys too growing up in SoCal).
    Mods, can you please do me a favor and ban spammer amyanna25? Thanks.

    The peace and love crowd all started to get into their own thing. She was just another domino. She's been through a lot. Cheers.
