Yoko Ono has thanked Paul McCartney for saying she wasn't to blame for splitting The Beatles.
"She certainly didn't break the group up, the group was breaking up," said McCartney last week.
She has now responded via the Guardian to thank him for the gesture. "I thought people knew I was not responsible but surprisingly, many people still felt that," she said. "He was very brave, so I'd like to say, 'Thank you, Paul. I love you. We love you.'"
Meanwhile, it has been revealed that Paul McCartney and his wife Nancy Shevell almost died in a helicopter crash in May.
They were traveling in a £5 million ($7.9 million) helicopter when their polite allegedly became disorientated in poor weather conditions.
The pilot dropped the aircraft to aid his visibility, but almost had a fatal collision with treetops. The pilot then took the helicopter to a nearby airport for a safe landing.
The incident has only just been revealed after the the Department of Transport in the UK decided to investigate. They found that the the helicopter's altimeter came just two meters from the treetops, and that there was indeed bad weather conditions on the day of the flight.
NME reports that McCartney and his wife were unaware of how close they came to having a fatal crash.
