John Lennon and Yoko Ono were what we call the superstar couple these days. They were constantly under the spotlight. Rumors and controversies followed them all around.

Back then, interracial relationship was taboo. Thus, Yoko Ono had to go through a hard time of tabloid racism in London. So, the couple moved to New York.

They lived together and had a son, Sean. The couple broke up in 1973 and controversially reunited about a year later. May Pang, John’s girlfriend during the break up, thought that John was brainwashed.
