Julian Lennon is reluctant to become a parent as he fears his famous family is cursed with fathers who walk out on their kids.

John Lennon was abandoned by his parents as a young child, and history repeated itself in the 1960s when he walked out on his first wife Cynthia and their son Julian to start a new life with Yoko Ono.

Julian remains childless at 50 and admits he would love to settle down with a family, but fears the scandal of ‘absent fathers’ is the bane of the Lennon ancestry.

He tells Hello! magazine, “I was in a relationship many years ago, where a child was involved, not mine, obviously. When the relationship ended I missed the child even more than the mother. I fell in love with the idea of being a father. But for me to even consider being a father, I felt I had to grow a great deal more and not follow the curse of the Lennon family.

“If I was going to be a father, I wouldn’t abandon my son or daughter as my father and grandfather did before me. Of that, I wanted to be sure.”
