Yoko Ono Regrets Lennon Love

Yoko Ono says she sometimes regretted falling in love with John Lennon, because the couple had to "sacrifice" so much for it.

The late Beatle was mocked for his feelings for her and she was discredited as an artist, the 73-year-old says.

Yet their romance was still the best thing that ever happened to her, Ono adds.

She and Lennon went public with their relationship in 1968, instantly captivating the media with their alternative lifestyle and devotion to each other.

But when the Beatles split in 1970, fans blamed Ono, accusing her of pushing her husband into going solo.

"It was the greatest thing that ever happened to me," the artist told Time Out New York of her romance with Lennon.

"But you know, I sometimes regretted that I fell in love, because we sacrificed a lot for it."
