John Lennon married his first wife Cynthia Lennon in 1962, shortly before they welcomed their son, but the pair were divorced in 1968. Just a year later, he tied the knot with Yoko Ono. In an interview with Howard Stern last year, The Beatles star Paul McCartney shed some light on the differences between Cynthia and Yoko as he spoke out on the band’s split, his feud with John and his former bandmate’s wives.

Paul also told Howard categorically that John was the one who broke The Beatles up and spoke of how glad he was to have reconciled following the feud which followed before his friend was shot and killed in 1980.
