Yoko Ono, widow of late Beatles star John Lennon has blamed bandmate Paul McCartney for the breakup of the band.
In a recently unarchived interview, Ono refers to the "Beatles divorce," and seems to place the blame on McCartney for being the one behind the Fab Four's split.
In the interview, Onosaid that although McCartney seemed to be the one trying to hold the band together, it was only so he could claim the band as his own in a Diana Ross and the Supremes type fashion, reported Examiner online.
"The Beatles were getting very independent. Each one of them was getting independent. John, in fact, was not the first, who wanted to leave the Beatles. We saw Ringo Starr one night with Maureen Starkey Tigrett, and he came to John and me and said he wanted to leave. George Harrison was next, and then John," Ono said.
"Paul McCartney was the only one trying to hold the Beatles together. But the other three thought Paul would hold the Beatles together as his band. They were getting to be like Paul's band, which they didn't like," she added.
This unearthing comes weeks after an interview between McCartney and David Frost, during which he placed no fault on Ono for breaking up the band, insisting the band was "already breaking up."
