Mia Farrow accuses Beatles pal Maharishi Mahesh Yogi of groping her


Mia Farrow has accused Beatles friend Maharishi Mahesh Yogi of molesting her when she visited the guru with the band in 1968.

According to the New York Post, Woody Allen's former partner claimed that the celibate guru had grabbed and groped her in his cave.

John Lennon later recalled that when the furious band had decided to fly home from India after listening to 'teary-eyed' Farrow's claims, the Maharishi asked them why they were leaving.

Lennon replied saying that if Yogi was so "f****ng" cosmic, he'd know.

The incident was apparently the inspiration behind the band's song 'Sexy Sadie' that was originally titled 'Maharishi' but changed to avoid legal woes.
