ARQUIVOS: Yoko Ono’s Driver Pleads Not Guilty as Lawyer Tells of ‘Abuse’ and ‘Paranoia’ by Employer

27 nov. / 2017 - NEW YORK • The chauffeur had claimed that Yoko Ono had sexually harassed him. Koral Karsan was later jailed for making threats against her.

That melodrama between the two, played out in New York City courtrooms and across newspaper headlines, appeared to end with that two-month span of accusations, denials and threats.
Karsan was sent back to his native Turkey after 60 days in jail and Ono returned to her public creative pursuits and the side of her life she has long kept private, within the walls of the apartment in the Dakota where she once lived with husband John Lennon. The Beatle was gunned down in 1980.

But the police in Berlin last week announced what amounted to an audacious coda to that 2006 chain of events. They said they had mounting evidence that Karsan, even as he was accusing Ono of sexual harassment and demanding US$2 million to stay quiet, was stealing Lennon's personal effects from her apartment in the Dakota.

Or was he? Karsan, 61, in a brief statement last Friday from his home in Turkey, said she gave him the Lennon items in 2006.

That claim suggests a likely return to the spotlight for the fraught relationship born years ago inside a hired limousine.

Many of the missing items were found this year in storage at a bankrupt German auction house, but others, including a sculpture of Lennon and "very personal documents" are still missing, the police said.

Karsan remains in Turkey and cannot be extradited to Germany. "We think he was the thief," said Mr Martin Steltner, a spokesman for the state prosecutor's office in Berlin.

Ono, 84, met German investigators last month in New York and was presented with a notebook that belonged to Lennon for her to identify. "It was very emotional for her," Mr Steltner added.

The story began 11 years ago with the public unravelling of the relationship between Ono and her driver of more than a decade, the man who shuttled the rock star's widow to and from her apartment by day and returned at night to his home on Long Island.

He had been a driver for a limousine service she used and she hired him to be her personal driver.

In December 2006, Karsan was arrested and accused of threatening to release private audiotapes and photographs if Ono did not give him US$2 million. He made the threats in a letter and a conversation with her lawyer, also threatening to kill her and her son, the police said.

Karsan's letter, in which he accused Ono of ruining his marriage and self-esteem, was later released.

"As you know, I have loyally served you in many capacities as your driver, bodyguard, assistant, butler, nurse, handyman and more so your lover and confidant over the last 10 years," the letter stated.

Her spokesman at the time denied those claims.

Prosecutors dropped the extortion charges in February 2007 and allowed Karsan to plead guilty to a lesser charge of attempted grand larceny. He was ordered to leave the United States for Turkey.

A decade passed. Then, in July, a lawyer in Berlin made a startling discovery. Auctionata, a Berlin auction house, had gone bankrupt and a lawyer going through the items in storage found Lennon's property.

The police said the items, 86 in all, including eyeglasses and diaries, had been sold to the auction house in 2014 by a man identified as Erhan G. The police sent photographs of the items to Ono's lawyer in New York and she identified them as having been taken from her home.

"We heard from Yoko Ono that the items were in different cupboards in her flat," Mr Steltner said.

"Not in a safe, not in a special place. She thought earlier that some items were missing, but she couldn't say," he added. She had never reported the items stolen.

On Oct 30, German investigators arrived in New York. The next day, they met Ono in the German consulate. They handed her a notebook from 1952 and photographs of other items in Berlin. She said they belonged to Lennon.

The police arrested Erhan G. last week. On Thursday, he admitted to having sold the items to the auction house. He said he had got them from Karsan, Mr Steltner said.

The police found photographs of more of Lennon's belongings in Erhan G.'s computer - he told them they were hidden somewhere.

"We are missing some walking sticks and a special, small sculpture", along with the private papers, "very personal documents and letters we don't want to publish", Mr Steltner added.

Karsan, reached for comment by e-mail last Friday, said he took the items out of the apartment at the instruction of Ono, along with other valuables, as a powerful storm approached the city in 2006.

She feared the home could be damaged. He included an e-mail he said was from Ono, asking him to perform several tasks before the storm.

The e-mail does not mention Lennon's possessions, but paintings and file cabinets.

Karsan said he locked the items away in Long Island. He did not return them, but added that Ono knew where they were. He added that after his conviction, he returned to Turkey.

He was not allowed to contact her after his conviction, so he kept the items and eventually had them sold to the auction house, he said. "At least I can get my compensation," he wrote.

A spokesman for Ono did not reply to e-mails seeking comment.

The items belonging to Lennon were stolen from Ono's New York apartment in 2006. Pictured above, Lennon, right, and his wife, Yoko Ono, are pictured arriving at The Hit Factory, a recording studio in New York City

'This was a spectacular, unusual criminal case,' police spokesman Winfrid Wenzel told reporters.

German authorities first became aware of the items, stolen from Yoko Ono at her New York home in 2006, when a bankruptcy administrator for the Berlin auction house Auctionata contacted them in July.

The administrator had found the memorabilia in the company's storage.

Police confiscated the items from the auctioneers two weeks later, and on Monday arrested a suspect and raided his Berlin home and cars.

They said another suspect, who is living in Turkey, is currently 'not available', but they would try to get him extradited to Germany.

During their investigation, police officers and prosecutors also flew to New York, where they met Ono to have her verify the stolen goods' authenticity.

Police said that Ono's former driver, who is now living in Turkey, is one of the suspects. He has a previous conviction in New York related to the stolen items.

A school exercise book of John Lennon from 1952 was found among the stolen items retrieved in Germany. A suspect in the theft who who was arrested in Berlin on Monday, was identified as a 58-year-old German businessman of Turkish origin

'She was very emotional and we noticed clearly how much these things mean to her and how happy she would be to have them back,' prosecutor Susann Wettley said of the moment they showed Ono some of the recovered items and pictures of some others.

Wettley said that Ono's former driver, who is now living in Turkey, is one of the suspects. He has a previous conviction in New York related to the stolen items, she said.

The other suspect, who was arrested in Berlin on Monday, was identified as a 58-year-old German businessman of Turkish origin.

During the search of his car, police said they found additional belongings of Lennon in a briefcase hidden under the spare tire in the trunk. Neither suspect's name was released because of German privacy rules.

Police are still checking confiscated computer files and business contracts to better understand how exactly the stolen goods ended up at the auction house in Berlin and if the auctioneers were aware that they bought stolen goods from the two suspects.

Paul McCartney has revealed a source of inspiration behind The Beatles' song Lady Madonna

1 nov. / 2017 - McCartney told National Geographic's editor-in-chief Susan Goldberg that the 1968 hit was partly inspired by a photograph of a Malayo-Polynesian woman surrounded by three small children. It was taken by photographer Howard Sochurek, and appeared in an article titled American Special Forces in Action in Viet Nam, in National Geographic's January 1965 issue.


"One particular issue I saw in the Sixties had a woman, and she looked very proud and she had a baby. And I saw that as a kind of Madonna thing, mother and child, and I just… You know, sometimes you see pictures of mothers and you go, 'She's a good mother.' You could just tell there's a bond and it just affected me, that photo. And so I was inspired to write Lady Madonna, my song, from that photo." Paul McCartney - 
National Geographic

The revelation was part of an interview in which McCartney promoted Meat Free Monday's new campaign One Day A Week. A documentary of the same name has been launched to highlight the environmental impact of animal agriculture. It features Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney, plus actors Woody Harrelson and Emma Stone.

The film includes tracks from McCartney's 1997 classical music album Standing Stone, plus an unreleased song titled Botswana.

Paul McCartney se inspirou em foto de revista para compor “Lady Madonna” –

02 nov. / 2017  - O compositor inglês e ex-beatle Paul McCartney revelou na quarta-feira que se inspirou numa foto da revista National Geographic para compor a canção “Lady Madonna”, que fala de uma mulher que dá o peito ao seu filho.

“Lady Madonna” foi lançada em 1968, e alcançou o primeiro lugar nas paradas, se tornando em uma das músicas mais famosas do quarteto de Liverpool.

A edição de janeiro de 1965 da revista “National Geographic” mostrou uma fotografia intitulada “Montanha Madonna” (“Mountain Madonna”, em inglês), onde aparecia uma mulher dando o peito para uma criança e outra rindo ao seu lado.

“Às vezes você vê imagens de mães e pensa se tratar de uma boa mãe. Você só pode dizer que há uma ligação com o filho. Essa foto me afetou e me inspirou em escrever a música”, explicou McCartney, de acordo com informações da mídia britânica.

O ex-baixista e vocalista dos Beatles igualmente falou sobre sua capacidade de realizar shows com três horas de duração, sem aparentar cansaço, apesar de ter completado 75 anos em junho deste ano.

“Acredito que estou bem. Faço shows de três horas e sigo me sentindo forte”, afirmou.

McCartney falará sobre este e outros temas num documentário intitulado One Day A Week que será transmitido através do Youtube, na sexta-feira.
