As you might remember, The Beatles members except for John Lennon, went to Santa Cruz for a short getaway back in 1963. Lennon was allegadly with the band’s manager Brian Epstein, who was homosexual, travelling in Barcelona.
Here’s what John Lennon previously stated about the rumors:
“I watched Brian picking up the boys. I like playing a bit faggy, all that. It was enjoyable, but there were big rumours in Liverpool, it was terrible. Very embarrassing.
It was almost a love affair, but not quite. It was never consummated. But it was a pretty intense relationship.”
Furthermore, Yoko Ono claimed that John and Brian didn’t have sex but Epstein was the one who made a move. Yoko also added the reason why John Lennon didn’t want to do it was because he was ‘too inhibited.’
Here’s what Yoko Ono asserted about Lennon’s homosexual relationship:
“The story I was told was a very explicit story, and from that I think they didn’t have sex.
I’m sure Brian Epstein made a move, yeah… Lennon just didn’t want to do it, I think. I think he had a desire to sleep with men, but I think he was too inhibited”.
