Julian Lennon claimed he was not invited to a number of social events involving the Beatles in recent months, including Sir Paul McCartney’s two wedding receptions in London and New York.
Lennon made the claims in a posting on his personal Facebook page on October 23, the day after Sir Paul and new bride Nancy Shevell hosted a star-studded wedding reception in New York.
At the time, Lennon wrote: "Wow... Snubbed at Macca’s Wedding, Snubbed at the Anniversary of ‘LOVE’ in Vegas! Snubbed at Macca’s Wedding reception in NYC, last night. Snubbed at George (Harrison’s)’s [sic] Film Premier... What Have I done to be ignored in such a way?"
"I was not invited to ANY of these events... I thought we had a relationship... Obviously not... Gimme some truth... Maybe now it’s time to tell the Truth... I & My Mother will not be eradicated from History... How Dare They."
As well as Sir Paul’s two wedding shindigs, Lennon was referring to the premiere of the Martin Scorsese film, 'George Harrison: Living In The Material World,' in London on October 2 and the five-year anniversary performance of the Beatles musical Love in Las Vegas, Nevada, on June 8.
Julian’s 36-year-old half-brother Sean did attend both Sir Paul’s New York reception and the Love anniversary. George Harrison’s widow Olivia and their son Dhani attended the London premiere and the London wedding reception, as did drummer Ringo Starr and wife Barbara Bach.
The Facebook posting was removed shortly afterwards. Last night, sources tried to play down the posting saying it had arisen from a "misunderstanding."
A spokesman for Sir Paul declined to comment.
