Yoko Ono’s chauffeur arrested in extortion plot.

It seems that the Lennon’s are developing quite a list of employees that have done them wrong (anyone remember Fred Seaman?).  It is sad to see stories like this come about.  Why can’t people just let her alone, and go about her business?  Hasn’t Yoko been through enough over the years.  This just seems to be a little  too much to handle even for her.  I certainly hope that this situation gets straightened out quickly and quietly.  Yoko doesn’t deserve that kind of treatment.

Here’s what we’ve read.

A chauffeur for Yoko Ono has been arrested for trying to extort $2 million from her by threatening to circulate embarrassing photos of her, said police, who claimed he also spoke of killing her and her son Sean Lennon.

Detectives from Manhattan arrested Koral Karsan on Long Island, New York, on Wednesday afternoon after Ono reported the plot, New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said. Charges were pending.

There was no immediate response to a telephone message left at Karsan’s home in Amityville, New York, and it was unclear if he had a lawyer.

The security staff for the widow of John Lennon told detectives that the Turkish-born Karsan wrote her in a rambling note that he had secretly photographed her and made audiotapes of her in private moments and warned he would make the material public if she didn’t pay him, police said.

On Dec. 8, the 26th anniversary of Lennon’s slaying, Karsan dropped off the note and a photo of Ono in nightclothes at the Dakota apartment building, where the former Beatle once lived with her and where she still resides, police said. Karsan, 50, talked about killing her, her son and himself during a later conversation with one of her associates, which was recorded by investigators, police said.

On the night of Dec. 8, 1980, Lennon was returning with Ono to the Dakota from a recording studio when Mark David Chapman opened fire with a .38-caliber revolver, hitting him four times.

Fans observe the anniversary of Lennon’s death by gathering at Strawberry Fields, a section of Central Park opposite the Dakota. In the past, Ono and Sean Lennon have placed candles on the windowsill of the apartment as a message of support.
