In a recent interview with Esquire, Julian Lennon discussed his relationship with his brother Sean and said rumors of an alleged feud between them are “such bull.”

The elder son of Beatles legend John Lennon said Sean was initially reluctant to attend the red carper premiere of the Beatles’ 2021 documentary series Get Back.

“He felt overwhelming pressure. And I didn’t particularly want to go. But he said he felt obligated to go,” Julian told Esquire. “So, because I love him so much I said, ‘Listen, I’m coming with you. We’ll face the demons together.’

“And it’s funny because there’s always been, especially in the U.K. press, ‘Lennon Sons Feuding,’ this, that,” he added. “We’ve never had a fight in our life. It’s such bull.”

However, at one point during the interview, Julian acknowledged that things haven’t always been on such good terms with his family in the past, due to the overwhelming legacy of the Liverpool band.

“I posted lots of happy pictures of us [Sean and me] doing nothing but smiling, laughing and acting like idiots,” he said.

“This was important for me and for the peace and for family, because there has been friction, no question, in the past between everybody. But we’re all getting a bit older, and as we get older we lose people and we realize now what’s most precious in life.”

He also added that the sentiment relates to his relationship with surviving members of the Fab Four.

“The love for Sean, and the love for Yoko [Ono], and Stella [McCartney], and Paul, and Mary [McCartney], and Dhani [Harrison] and Zak [Starkey] – it’s a big old, weird family,” Lennon added. “But as they say, families are always a bit screwed up.”
