Yoko Ono's chauffeur was arrested yesterday (12.13.06) for trying to bribe
her for $2 million.

Driver Koral Karsan threatened to leak embarrassing photographs of the
73-year-old and hinted he would kill her and her son Sean Lennon if he did
not received the huge sum.

Karsan - who has worked for Yoko, the widow of John Lennon, for six years -
was arrested, pending charges, by New York police after Yoko reported the
threats
Yoko's spokesman, Elliot Mintz said: "She is one woman who has been through
enough.

"For an employee - especially a trusted employee who drove her - to attempt
a shakedown has left her just absolutely shocked."

Police said that on December 8, the 26th anniversary of John Lennon's
assassination, Karsan delivered a threatening note and a photo of Yoko in
nightclothes to her apartment in New York's Dakota building, where she once
lived with the former Beatle

In a later conversation with one of Yoko's associates, which was recorded by
investigators, the 50-year-old chauffeur talked about killing her, her son
and himself.

Mintz added: "You're reminded that this takes place around that time of the
anniversary, when she is in a particularly vulnerable position.
"It just adds insult to injury. This one's really cold."

John was shot on the night of December 8, 1980, by crazed fan Mark David
Chapman.

The music legend and his wife were returning to the Dakota building from a
recording studio when Chapman opened fire with a .38-caliber revolver
shooting him four times.

What a bizarre story!! And what would be so embarrassing about her or Sean that people would even care? It wouldn't be nude photos because before she married John Lennon, she was a performance artist who sometimes disrobed on stage, so that's not news.

It's interesting that Yoko and Paris Hilton have the same PR guy - Elliot Mintz.

A lot of people strongly believe that Yoko Ono broke up The Beatles.

While he was still a Beatle, he collaborated with Yoko on a lot of albums and released them under the name The Plastic Ono Band.

A lot of people say The Beatles broke up because they were moving in different directions musically and personally.

John Lennon even said he wanted out of The Beatles even before he met Yoko.

I was about to say the same thing! Their album cover for Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins is a nude picture of the both of them!

What's wrong with people? Regardless of what Yoko did (or didn't) do, you don't specifically choose the anniversary of her husband's death to bring up embarrassing things about her!

(Well, you don't do that, period, but ESPECIALLY not then!)
