Julian Lennon

John Lennon's son, Julian , has said that he is reluctant to have children of his own because of his relationship with his father.

The singer, now 48, had a complicated relationship with his father when he was younger and admits he doesn't want his kids to suffer the same experience.

Julian rarely saw his father during his childhood after the Beatles star split from his then wife, Cynthia, and started another family with Yoko Ono.

He told Record Collector magazine: "He was young and didn't know what the hell he was doing. That's the reason I haven't had children yet. I didn't want to do the same thing. No, I'm not ready. I want to know who I am first."

The artist also told the magazine: "Mum was more about love than dad. He sang about it, he spoke about, but he never really gave it, at least not to me as his son.... "
