Yoko Ono Advises Heather Mills: 'Try to Survive'

Originally posted 04/04/2008 09:15AM

Though Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono have long been said to have a frosty relationship, John Lennon's widow has some warm words for McCartney's recent ex, Heather Mills.

"All I can say is, it's not very easy for a woman to be associated with The Beatles," Ono, 75, tells Britain's Sky News. "I think all the wives did suffer, and I think quietly suffer. Suffer but endured, I would actually say."

Moving forward, Ono advises Mills, 40, to "do her very best and try to survive".

YOKO SUES EX-AIDE

Originally posted 03/22/1999 12:00AM

Yoko Ono continued a long feud with a former assistant to John Lennon, suing him Tuesday and claiming he stole priceless personal items after the ex-Beatle was killed. In a federal lawsuit Ono contends that the former aide, Fred Seaman, agreed in 1983 to return boxes of Lennon's personal items but held on to hundreds of photos. The lawsuit was prompted by Seaman's claim in a February letter to Capitol Records that a photograph of Lennon with his son Sean overlooking a beach in Bermuda was improperly included in a recently released CD box set. Seaman said he shot the photo and calls Capitol's use of it "an egregious" copyright infringement. Capitol sued Seaman separately on Tuesday, seeking a declaration that the photo does not infringe on any copyrights.
