In 1969, when The Beatles were parting ways, John Lennon told the band: "I'm breaking the group up. It feels good. It feels like a divorce."
But that's not the only public split Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr and honorary fifth Beatle, George Martin, endured; all of the bandmates have been through divorces in their personal lives, too. In honor of the 32nd anniversary of Lennon's tragic death on Dec. 8, 1980, we take a look back at the band's divorces. Click through the slides below for more on their splits.
