As of now, Julain is a grown up and in addition to that, he is an English musician and photographer. Regarding the relationship between Julian and his father John, he told:

I have to say that, from my point of view, I felt he was a hypocrite. Dad could talk about peace and love out loud to the world but he could never show it to the people who supposedly meant the most to him: his wife and son. How can you talk about peace and love and have a family in bits and pieces—no communication, adultery, divorce? You can't do it, not if you're being true and honest with yourself.

Bitter words but true though.

Let's have a look at grown-up Julian Lennon.
