John Lydon: Grief Over Ari Up's Death Is Killing My Family


John Lydon
The rocker reveals his wife Nora Foster, who is Up's mother, is taking the loss 'really bad' and 'the stress is killing' his family.


John Lydon is still in mourning following the death of his singer step-daughter Ari Up in October, revealing the star's passing is "killing" his family. The rocker is married to the late The Slits frontwoman's mother, Nora Foster, and the couple was devastated when Up lost her battle with cancer at the age of 48, following a course of expensive treatment.

Lydon reveals his brother Jimmy is also fighting the disease. And his family is struggling to deal with the ongoing health issues.

He tells Britain's The Times, "We're a little on the dismal side. It's pain, pain, pain. Nora's taking it (Up's death) really bad. We had to pay for Ari's treatment, which set us back a f**king sizeable chunk moneywise. The stress is killing us, the debris of family all around."
