MOTHER: John Lennon’s Oedipus Wreck


THE SUN: JOHN LENNON fantasised about having sex with his mother Julia, according to a leaked audio diary which it is claimed he recorded a year before his death.

His widow YOKO ONO and BEATLES bandmate PAUL McCARTNEY are furious about forthcoming book John Lennon: The Life by Philip Norman, which makes the lurid accusation.

However on the tape – which you can listen to by clicking here – a voice alleged to be John’s can be heard noting: “I was just remembering the time I had my hand on my mother’s t*t in 1 Blomfield Road.

“It was when I was about 14.julialennon_1.jpg

“I took a day off school, I was always doing that and hanging out in her house.

“We were lying on the bed and I was thinking ‘I wonder if I should do anything else?’”

The audio – recorded on September 5 1979 – continues: “It was a strange moment, because I actually had the hots for some rather lower class female who lived on the other side of the road.

Mum … Julia Lennon

“I always think that I should have done it. Presuming she would have allowed it.”

The tape was passed to The Sun by a friend of Philip Norman hoping to counter the outrage of Beatles fans at the book, which also alleges John wanted a gay relationship with Macca. MORE

freud.gifWIKIPEDIA: The Oepidus complex, in Freudian psychoanalysis, is named after the Greek mythical character Oedipus, who unknowingly kills his father, Laius, and marries his mother, Jocasta. According to the theory, the complex appears between the ages of three and five. The child feels sexual desire for the parent of the opposite sex and desires the death of the parent of the same sex. the Freudian Oedipus complex has two poles. The “positive pole” implies hatred and a death wish for the parent of the same sex (father for boys and mother for girls), and love and attachment towards the parent of the opposite sex. The “negative pole” implies the hatred and death wish directed at the parent of the opposite sex, and love for the parent of the same sex. Although common usage refers to “suffering from an Oedipus complex”, psychoanalysis does not consider the complex a pathology, but instead a normal stage that all children go through. Oedipal desires are thought to remain heavily repressed and unconscious in the minds of all functioning adults.
