John Lennon's son Julian Lennon has ended his long-running family feud with half-brother Sean Lennon and his former step-mother Yoko Ono, insisting "things are good" between the trio. Lennon's murder in 1980 reportedly sparked a rift between the siblings, with Julian and his mother left to battle Ono through the courts for a share of the singer's estate.

The brothers, both musicians, appeared to grow closer in recent years, and even performed together for a United Nations concert in 2009. And Sean and Ono proved they harbored no hard feelings against The Beatles legend's other son when they put on a united front to support Julian's photography exhibit at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in New York last Thursday night, September 16.

Julian insists he's laid the feud to rest - and he regularly keeps in touch with his former rivals. He tells the New York Post, "Things are good between us. Whenever I'm in New York we all get together. Sean even asked me to shoot his album cover - for free, of course."

According to Julian, the brothers never had a feud. It was a media driven thing.

It's really sweet, but actually Sean and Julian both said that they never had a "feud" to begin with. On the contrary, they have always been extremely close. And CBONIA, uh...John Lennon spoke to his son and did love both his sons. How obnoxious. I'm sure he'd be happy.

Yes, actually, some of us do care. For the two sons of this incredibly talented men to share their lives, not just DNA, is John Lennon's true legacy, more important than his body of work.

John, hardly spoke or had a relationship with Julian. So, I don't think he would've gave a rat's ass!

Yes if you are a Lennon fan. If not, don't read about it. Its nice to bury the hatchet and John would be pleased his sons are friendly.
