John Lennon's son felt "cast aside" when he embarked on a relationship with Yoko Ono.
Julian Lennon has recalled how he felt the late Beatles legend had "disappeared off the face of the planet" when he divorced his mother Cynthia in 1968 and got together with the artist because they had very little contact.
Julian said: "Suddenly my dad literally disappeared off the face of the planet. At least, that's how it seemed to me.
"He and Yoko Ono were deeply and publicly in love. And I felt as if my mum and I had been cast aside."
Julian, now 56, felt grateful that his dad's bandmate Sir Paul McCartney didn't "forget" about him.
He added: "Not everyone forgot about us, though. Paul wrote Hey Jules after dropping in to check how my mum and I were doing. (Obviously, the title of the song changed to Hey Jude)."
