John Lennon had one great love in his life: music, part of which was created with his friends in The Beatles. However, in his private life, he also had two marriages, one of which lasted until his death in 1970. It turns out, however, he may have been interested in someone else: David Bowie.


According to a new book from music writer Lesley-Ann Jones, John Lennon and David Bowie were much more than friends at one point.

In fact, it turns out the pair had a short ‘fling’ while John went through his lost weekend.

The Lost Weekend is known by fans as a period during which he and his wife, Yoko Ono, had separated, and he became involved with May Pang, a young assistant.

During this time many things occurred, including John’s increased use of LSD, his reconciliation with Sir Paul McCartney, and reportedly a ‘fling’ with David.

In her new book, Lesley-Ann describes a lunch she had with David in the 1990s, during which he admitted to this having taken place.

He said: “There was a whore in the middle, and it wasn’t either of us.

“At some point in proceedings, she left. I think it was a she. Not that we minded.”

According to Lesley-Ann, May was herself unsure of her own arrangements with John, and told her she “simply couldn’t say no to him... No one could.”
