John Lennon’s son dispels rumours about performing with his brother

Julian Lennon lashes out at the media

John Lennon‘s son Julian Lennon has dispelled a rumour that he and his half-brother, Sean, will perform together at a United Nations event next month.

Fox News columnist Roger Friedman reported today (January 29) that the brothers, who have never performed together in public, would take the stage at the UN Millennium Goal Awards on February 26. Julian, however, has said this is absolutely not true.

In a posting today on his MySpace blog, Julian wrote, “Sorry to say, but the news today about Sean & I playing together at the UN Awards came directly out of Roger Friedman‘s ass!”


“Do they ever tell the truth at FOX?” he added. “He/they didn’t even attempt to get in touch with either of our reps or the producers of the UN event to find out whether this story was true or not. So you know what they represent…..J x”

Julian, 45, and Sean, 33, have been caught in the middle of a long-time family feud between Lennon‘s widow and Sean‘s mother, Yoko Ono, and the former Beatles‘ first wife and mother of Julian, Cynthia Lennon.
