LONDON (AP) — A publicist says Cynthia Lennon, the first wife of former Beatle John Lennon, has died of cancer at her home in Spain. She was 75.

The news was announced Wednesday on the website of her son, Julian Lennon, and was confirmed by his representative.

Cynthia and John Lennon met at art school in Liverpool and married shortly before the Beatles shot to fame.

They divorced in 1968 after John Lennon started his relationship with Yoko Ono. Julian was their only child together.
