John married his first wife Cynthia in 1962, while the Beatles were only just making it big in the music business.

With Cynthia, John had Julian, who was born on April 8, 1963.

In the years which followed, the Beatles’ fame morphed into Beatlemania and John’s relationship with Cynthia began to break down.

In 1966, John met avant-garde artist Yoko Ono and the pair began corresponding.

He and Cynthia subsequently split in 1968, with reports suggesting Cynthia returned from a holiday to find the Beatles star in their home with Yoko.

John and Yoko then married in 1969, however they separated in 1973, during which time John began a relationship with May Pang, his personal assistant.

The pair were together for a year when, in early 1975, John went to meet Yoko and the pair got back together, with Yoko neglecting to tell May or return home to explain.

According to May, who saw John again two days later, she believed he had been “brainwashed” as he told her he was back with Yoko, though he could continue seeing May as a mistress.

With Yoko, John had one son, Sean, who was born on his father’s 35th birthday of October 9, 1975.

While the sons seem to get on a lot better these days, there were certainly some public differences over John’s will, though reports have suggested these differences were between Julian and Yoko rather than Sean, to whom John is reported to have left all of his money.

In an interview with the Telegraph in May 1998, Julian spoke about the pain he felt of being excluded from his father’s will.

In the article, it is revealed Julian was to receive £2,400-a-year in maintenance from the divorce settlement between John and Julian’s mother, Cynthia.

As well as this, there was a £50,000 trust fund which was inherited by Julian when he was 25-years-old.

However, given John’s net worth was expected to be in the region of £220 million back in 1998, and is now closer to £612.3 million (around $ 800 million), the amount left for Sean and Yoko was pretty massive.

Speaking out about the will, Julian said: “I don’t think it was necessarily fair, but I’m OK. The last thing I wanted was a court battle because there’s much more money on the estate side than my side.

“A court case could have gone on for five years. The slanderous remarks would have been horrific.

“There would not have been a private life for either Sean or me. I just wanted to resolve it, to get the hell out of there; a chapter in my life finished, over with.”

However, in 1996, Julian is reported to have gone into a court battle to get money from the estate, suing the estate for a larger cut of the inheritance.

He won this case and it was reported he gained around £20 million from the estate, though Julian has denied this amount.

However, since then, Julian and Sean have been pictured together at various events, showing the brothers seem to have an amicable relationship.
