According to filmmaker Peter Jackson, who recently undertook a three-part, seven-hour documentary of the iconic band’s final years for Disney+, it wasn’t Yoko Ono at all. It was manager Allen Klein.

For all of their success as one of the most popular bands the world has ever seen, The Beatles met a rather messy and complicated end. It’s easy to point fingers at Yoko Ono or Allen Klein as the sole cause of their breakup, but the reality isn’t always that cut and dry.

Peter Jackson has been studying The Beatles for the better part of the last four years. He concludes that Allen Klein is the leading cause of the split. The Beatles: Get Back director talked about the break-up felt ’round the world.














“The band broke up over disagreements, with Allen Klein coming in to run their business affairs,” said Jackson. “For the first time in the history of The Beatles, it was three votes to one. John, George, and Ringo wanted to bring in Allen Klein to run their business affairs, and Paul didn’t, and they said, well Paul, Allen Klein is coming in because we are three votes, and you are one vote.”

Just like that, one of the most recognizable music groups in history split up after fewer than 10 years together. Okay, there was a bit more at play than a single split vote. According to Radio X, the members were working on solo projects, and the Apple Records album release schedule became a battleground, further dividing John, George, and Ringo from Paul McCartney.















Peter Jackson says it should be Allen Klein. The Beatles documentarian added that, from his perspective, the criticism levied at Yoko Ono is entirely off-base. Yes, Lennon and Yoko were indeed starting a life together and exploring artistic avenues beyond The Beatles. But she was far from an active contributor to the band’s demise.














“Yoko comes in and doesn’t interfere. She doesn’t express opinions. She’s quiet. She’s there because she and John are in love. There is no other complicating factor to it,” Peter Jackson continued in the Deadline interview.

Paul McCartney himself told BBC Radio 4 that Yoko wasn’t responsible.
