The Beatles John Lennon's first wife Cynthia died today aged 75

John Lennon's first wife Cynthia died today aged 75 at her home in Spain following a short battle with cancer.
A message on her son Julian's website said he was at her beside throughout, and the family 'are thankful for your prayers'.

Cynthia Lennon, nee Powell, married Lennon in 1962 and stayed with him as he rose to global stardom with The Beatles until the couple divorced in 1968.

John Lennon and Cynthia met at college and married just as Lennon's career with The Beatles propelled him to fame.
Julian also tweeted a picture of his mother, who was 75, inside a heart with the message 'In Loving Memory'.
He also posted a moving video tribute to his late mother with a song he had written in her honor.
'You gave your life for me, you gave your life for love,' it begins, showing footage of him as a young boy with his parents. It also shows footage of Cynthia with John during the early days of Beatlemania.
