John Lydon breaks down in TEARS onstage as he reveals late wife Nora’s final moments


John Lydon, 68, wept on stage on Thursday as he remembered his late wife during his UK speaking tour.

The Sex pistols icon famously known as Johnny Rotten, lost Nora Forster at the age of 80 after a two-year battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

The star who is still grieving opened up about his late wife during his 45-date UK speaking tour called I Could Be Wrong, I Could Be Right. 

Nora Forster’s Final Moments

According to The Mirror, John recalled the night she died by saying: ‘She started a death rattle, like the breathing. It is very, very strange and uncomfortable to be around. I knew then that it was finally coming. 

‘She held my hand and said ‘Johnny’. And then in a heartbeat, the ambulance arrived, in minutes. 

Recalling her final moments, he continued :’They kept trying to revive her. Her heart would come back for a little bit and then stop again. And then the most painful question was, ‘Shall we stop now and let her rest in peace?’ I was like, ‘No f***ing way’. 

‘If I ever had to go through this all over again, I’d still say the same. You have to fight for life ’til the very last breath, it is worth it. The agony, whatever, take it all. 

‘Don’t give up on yourself or anybody else. I love my Nora.’

John Reveals What Nora Love

John also showed fans a picture of her urn with flowers by the side of his bed during another event at the Theatre Royal in Brighton. 

He said: ‘Forgive me, the flowers are plastic. There is a reason why real flowers rot and that is the saddest vibe in the world. Plastic flowers go on forever.

‘She loved colours but she’s going to have to wait for my ashes to join her.’

How They Met

John met Nora at Vivienne Westwood’s famous King’s Road clothes shop Sex, in 1975.
