Yoko Ono Net Worth: Yoko Ono is a Japanese artist and peace activist who has a net worth of $600 million dollars. Yoko Ono, a performance artist and activist, is most widely known as the widow of John Lennon. She is also an accomplished musician and filmmaker and many credit her with bringing New Wave music to the forefront. Born on February 18, 1933, in Tokyo, Japan, Yoko Ono has made a name for herself as a notable peace activist and performance artist, but became known far and wide for her marriage to John Lennon. Spending most of her childhood in war-torn Japan, she showed an aptitude for music from a very early age. Ono literally started studying piano almost as soon as she could walk and continued to broaden her musical knowledge in prestigious schools. Early in the 1950s, Ono moved to New York, where she met and collaborated with leading members of New York's avant-garde artistic community. In this period, she also married her first husband, Toshi Ichiyanagi. But Ono's bohemian New York lifestyle caused both a rift with her parents and husband, leading to a breakaway from her wealthy, privileged background and a divorce. In 1962, Toshi became clinically depressed as she returned to Japan to live with her parents. Vulnerable and not fully recovered, she jumped into another marriage, this time with artist Anthony Cox. Even though their union resulted in the birth of a daughter, they split in 1964. Ono found comfort in her involvement in performance art, which led her to New York City and then London. While she was in London, she met and instantly fell in love with John Lennon. He truly adored her and appreciated Yoko calling her "the most famous unknown artist in the world." However, the fans of the Beatle dismissed her as a fake and charlatan. In 1975, Ono gave birth to baby son Sean, who made his father drop out from show biz. While Lennon became a house-husband, Ono took the family's business affairs in her hands. Meanwhile, Lennon also worked quietly on a comeback album, 'Double Fantasy'. Ono made a substantial contribution to the album, which was released in 1980. In December the same year, Lennon was tragically shot dead by a deranged fan outside his apartment building in New York. Following his death, Yoko Ono has explored new directions in her art, which was often shrouded with grief.
