A frail-looking Yoko Ono was spotted visiting two of John Lennon’s childhood homes on Friday after traveling from her New York home to Liverpool.
The artist, who was married to Lennon from 1969 until his death in 1980, was in the city to open a museum show dedicated to their relationship, filled with exhibits from her own private collection.
While in Liverpool she visited Mendips, the home where Lennon spent most of his childhood, and took a photo of herself in his bedroom.
Uploading the photo to Instagram, she wrote: ‘This is John’s room in Menlove Avenue. I feel John here with me…I love you John. Yoko.’
She previously owned the property, having bought it at auction in 2002 before donating it to the National Trust, which now preserves it.
Yoko was also reported to have bought the second property at auction in 2013, paying more than three times the asking price, according to Breitbart.
The site reports that the same decorating team that renovated the Mendips home were spotted at the Newcastle Road property after it was purchased.
