The wife of John Lennon’s assassin, Mark David Chapman, has revealed her belief that the remaining Beatles will forgive her husband for the murder of their bandmate, astonishingly stating that she thinks Paul McCartney would “get on well” with his best friend’s killer.
Speaking to the Daily Mail in an exclusive interview, Gloria Hiroko Chapman detailed her life with her husband, whom she married just 18 months before Lennon’s murder. Standing by him, she believes that Chapman is repentant and deserves forgiveness for his crime.

Over the course of the interview, Gloria revealed that she and Chapman have written to Yoko Ono multiple times seeking her forgiveness.
“He isn’t angry or upset that she has pleaded with judges not to release him. I think he understands,” she asserted.
During their annual yearly visit, which lasts just 44 hours, Gloria admits that she and Chapman talk about the remaining Beatles. She asserted her belief that Lennon’s bandmates would forgive Chapman for the singer’s brutal murder.

As the Inquisitr recently reported, Paul McCartney addressed the anniversary of Lennon’s death earlier this month with an appearance on the Johnathan Ross Show, during which he described Mark Chapman as “The jerk of all jerks.” Gloria was reportedly outraged at the description, as well as the assertion that Lennon was simply a random victim for Chapman.
“Paul McCartney has a right to say what he wants, but if he was to meet Mark, I think he would like him. Mark is a very likeable and loving person. He always puts other people’s needs before his own and would welcome a visit from Mr. McCartney.”
Gloria, a 63-year-old hospital worker who lives in Hawaii, also stated that she and Mark Chapman hope to meet John Lennon in heaven, as the Telegraph notes.
“If Mark could say anything to John and Yoko now, he would say: ‘I’m sorry I caused such pain,'” she asserted.
“He would say: ‘I hope you have forgiven me.'”

Gloria is convinced that Mark Chapman regrets the murder of John Lennon. Convicted of the killing, he was sentenced to a minimum of 20 years in prison. Mark David Chapman has applied for parole eight times, and each time has been denied.
