John Lennon had an affair with Yoko Ono’s assistant, May Pang who was ten years younger than him, a new documentary claims.

According to “The Lost Weekend: A Love Story,” a documentary that premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, John had an affair with his assistant, May Pang, in 1970.

May tells the story of how she met John and Yoko when she was 19 and working at The Beatles’ music company in New York, Apple Records.

As the story goes, John Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono liked May so much that they asked her to be their assistant. She worked for a few years until one morning in 1973 when Yoko insisted May go out with John.

The documentary shows Yoko telling May that she was not getting along with her husband and feared John would start seeing other people. So, Yoko suggested that May get involved.

The alleged affair began when May was 22 and John was 32. She claims John had previously told Yoko that he found her attractive. Even though May didn’t have romantic feelings for him, John kissed May in an elevator.

The two moved across the country to Los Angeles and after that John Lennon started making music again with Paul McCartney.

According to the document, John and May even sent joint Christmas cards, though they hid their affair from everyone outside their circle of friends.

It is claimed that May and John fell in love, and when Yoko found out, she fought hard to win him back. Their affair lasted 18 months.
