John Lydon Recalls His Late Wife Destroying Jennifer Lopez’s Dress

In a recent conversation with The Daily Telegraph newspaper, John Lydon talked about the time when his late wife accidentally damaged Jennifer Lopez’s dress.

He recalled the encounter with the pop singer and Donald Trump at a New York event, saying:

“I’ll never forget my dear Nora accidentally treading on Jennifer Lopez’s dress at a gala in New York, and next to her was Donald Trump, who turned around, looked at me, and said, ‘Who let this hooligan in?'”

The frontman continued:

“Nora’s high heel had torn J-Lo’s frock, but what did she expect when she had a 10ft f*cking train? It was hilarious to see their anger at watching the dress shred before their eyes.”

The former Sex Pistols singer lost his wife, Nora, in April following a years-long battle with Alzheimer’s. Lydon addressed her illness in a February interview with Sunday Times before her death, saying:

“All the things I thought were the ultimate agony seem preposterous now… It’s shaped me into what I am. I don’t think I’ll ever get over it. I don’t see how I can live without her. I wouldn’t want to. There’s no point.”

The singer’s feelings toward his late wife were also reflected in the song ‘Hawaii,’ which he wrote as a love letter to Nora, inspired by her illness. While he performed the track with his band Public Image Ltd to represent Ireland at the 67th annual Eurovision Song Contest, he lost it to Wild Youth.
