She grew up in the middle-class section of Hoylake, on the Wirral Peninsula in North West England.

She was an incredible mother... John loved her so much

MicheleMar 8, 2011

I just finish reading her book about John. I do agree that she and john did make a beautiful couple. but somehow I think that when he left with yoko I'm sure it seem that he was a bitter man. but I could be wrong.

Cynthia never ever dated Magic Alex . John asked him to get with her so, it would look like it was her who was the one cheating in the relationship, but meanwhile John was off with Yoko.

VickyApr 28, 2010

Pete, what a nasty thing to say. And it`s she not he.

PeteApr 16, 2010

he married a jiggaboo? John must be turning in his grave.

ChristineJul 20, 2009

John n Cyn were meant for each other. Shame on u Yoko for breaking up a family. But Cyn did a great job raising Julian on her own!

OliviaMay 7, 2009

She did not date Magic Alex - it was a set up by John to discredit her.

LillieApr 27, 2009

She did not date Magic Alex, - read her book `John.`

VickyApr 23, 2009

Just noticed that my comment saying I admire Cynthia has gone. Would someone like to tell me what was wrong with it?

VickyApr 23, 2009

The dates are wrong - in her book John, Cynthia says after a few years of being on her own she got together with Jim Christie in 1982.

Deanna HayesJan 9, 2009

Cynthia Powell seemed more Ringo Starr`s speed than any of his two wives.Why I just seem to think so.
