Yoko Ono has filed a new lawsuit against a former personal assistant of her late husband John Lennon after claiming the defendant is once again trying to profit off the family.
The latest filing follows a decades-old legal dispute, which came to a head in 1983 when Frederic Seaman admitted to the Manhattan district attorney in New York City that he had taken private photos, letters, and journals from the Lennon residence in Manhattan.
“At the time, Mrs. Lennon believed that to be the end of her ordeal with Seaman,” Ono’s lawyer, Dorothy Webber, wrote. “Those representations turned out to be lies and the start of yet another scheme.”
