John Lennon’s sweary letter to Paul McCartney

Furious Beatles breakup letter sold for $30,000
Furious: An angry letter written by John Lennon (top) to Linda and Paul McCartney (bottom; all three seen in 1971) was auctioned off for $30,000 Thursday to an anonymous buyer

A blistering letter from John Lennon to Paul and Linda McCartney written shortly after the Beatles split up has been sold at auction for nearly $30,000.

The two-page typed draft, with handwritten additions by Lennon, rips into the McCartneys - particularly Linda - and shows the titanic clash of egos that the Lennon-McCartney partnership had become by the end.

In the rambling letter's closing paragraph, Lennon complains about 'all the petty s**t that came from your insane family/in laws - and GOD HELP YOU OUT, PAUL - see you in two years - I reckon you'll be out then.'

As it goes on sale at auction

A letter from John Lennon and Yoko Ono to Paul McCartney and wife Linda is up for sale at auction, with bidding expected to reach $20,000 (£16k).

The undated letter sees Lennon responding to prior correspondence from Linda which he says left him “wondering what middle aged cranky Beatle fan wrote it”. Lennon writes in his letter: “I hope you realise what shit you and the rest of my ‘kind and unselfish’ friends laid on Yoko and me, since we’ve been together”.

Elsewhere, Lennon goes on to say that he doesn’t “resent” his former Beatles bandmate but that he feels “sorry for him”. He also predicts that the McCartneys’ marriage would be over within two years.

Meanwhile, a letter written by John Lennon in 1969 to the Queen that explained his decision to return his MBE was recently discovered in a record sleeve.
