May Pang sets record straight on her AFFAIR with John Lennon

John Lennon’s now famous “lost weekend” with May Pang was the subject of much attention and speculation from The Beatles fans back in the early 1970s, when he left his home with wife Yoko Ono in New York to set up house with their assistant May Pang in Los Angeles. Having first met Ono in 1966, Lennon married the avant-garde artist three years later. However, by 1973, the couple’s relationship had problems.

“I believe you’re referring to the more intimate aspects,” she continued. “The last time we were together, we were listening to the Little River Band’s Reminiscing which was released in 1978.”

Pang went on to address the LennonNYC documentary, directed by Michael Epstein, which had been released a year earlier and covered Lennon’s time in LA with her.

Speaking out on her displeasure at the way in which her relationship with Lennon was characterised in the film, Pang explained: “I just get tired of the same rehashing of lies and myths.
