John Lennon's sons are speaking again

Half brothers Julian and Sean Lennon have begun speaking to each other again.

Their reconciliation follows Julian's eight-year feud with Sean and Sean's mother, Yoko Ono, the widow of the men's father, Beatle John Lennon, the New York Post reported in Sunday's editions.

The rift stemmed from comments Julian made about Yoko Ono, he told the Post. Julian's mother is John's first wife, Cynthia.

"I thought it time to make big changes in my own life," Julian, 44, told the Post in what the paper said was his first interview since 1999. "Part of that has been to get Sean back into my life, because I love him so much."

After contacting Sean's tour manager this year, Julian surprised his half brother backstage after a show in Prague. "We just hugged and held each other," Julian recalled.

Julian joined Sean, 31, on the tour bus, sleeping on the floor and travelling through Croatia and Slovenia, he said.

'LENNON BE': SIBS RECONCILE
JULIAN AND SEAN 'GET BACK' BOND
By GARTH PEARCE Post Correspondent


June 24, 2007 -- PARIS - Julian Lennon has finally given peace a chance after an eight-year feud with half-brother Sean (far left) and Yoko Ono, the widow of his Beatle father, John.

This comes as Yoko revealed recently that she considered an abortion to be rid of Sean, now 31, "because maybe John didn't want it."

Julian, 44, can appreciate the problem.

He and his mother, Cynthia, John's first wife, were kept secret when the Beatles were first topping the charts in the early 1960s.

"Dad had his own way of doing things and his own beliefs," he says.

In his first interview since 1999, Julian confessed, "I thought it time to make big changes in my own life. Part of that has been to get Sean back in to my life, because I love him so much."

He secretly turned up on Sean's tour of East Europe earlier this year.

"I got in touch with Sean's tour manager without him knowing, and was sitting backstage when he came off a gig in Prague. He . . . said, 'Jesus, you look just like my brother.'

"I said, 'I am your brother.' He looked really closely at me, and it scared the s - - t out of him. We just hugged and held each other.

"We had been out of touch because of comments I had made about his mother. So he said: 'How long are you staying?' I told him: 'I am coming on the tour bus with you.' So I slept on the floor . . . as we traveled through Croatia and Slovenia."

Have to admit I had exactly the same deja vu! Also, weren't Jules and Sean at the Love premiere? Looks like some bright spark journos dug out an old story and reprinted it!
