London, September 13 : John Lennon lusted for his mother, and this can be confirmed with an audiotape, which was reportedly recorded a year before the Beatles' death.
The sensational tape has now been leaked to the public.
Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, and fellow Beatle star, Sir Paul McCartney, are raged with such claims that are a part of Philip Norman's forthcoming biography, John Lennon: The Life.
Consequently, they are now maintaining a distance with the book while Yoko has withdrawn all her endorsements. The tape allegedly with the voice of Lennon records: "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.
"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?'"
Recorded on September 5, 1979, the tape 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.
"I always think that I should have done it. Presuming she would have allowed it."
The audiotape was handed down to the British tabloid, The Sun, by a pal of Philip Norman hoping to oppose the annoyed Beatle lovers at the book, which also alleges that Lennon wanted a gay relationship with Macca.
"This is not what people want to hear - but it's the truth. John was a complex man, even when he was a kid," the Sun quoted a source, as saying.
"This audio recording is 100 per cent genuine. It was never meant for public consumption, but has now leaked out. The idea is to give people the whole picture, even if it upsets them," the source added.
