Despite these sentiments, there was a well-publicised battle from Julian to attempt to gain a further settlement from the John Lennon estate, which was once estimated to be around £220million.
Julian eventually secured a further settlement from the estate in 1996, but the number was never revealed, and the battle saw Julian go up against the main executor of the estate, Yoko.
In the end, Julian used a great deal of this to buy back some of his father’s possessions, including an Afghan coat worn by John on the cover of the Magical Mystery Tour, and scribbled notes about the song Hey Jude, which is written about him.
It is very difficult to try and work out why this might be, though one interview John gave could reveal quite a bit about his feelings for his two children.
