Chris Spedding, a producer, launched Forster and Lydon for the first time in the mid-1970s. Lydon is her 14-year-old brother.

In an October 2018 interview with New York's classic rock radio station Q104.3, Lydon said that his wife Forster has Alzheimer's disease. Lydon has always been Nora's biggest supporter. "Nora is the greatest woman I've ever met on God's green earth," he continued. If we started working as a pair tomorrow, there would be no one else. Never, ever, ever. "I'm not kidding."

In June 2020, he also revealed that his wife Forster's health had deteriorated and that he had taken on the role of full-time carer for her. "I am her full-time carer, and I will not allow anyone to harm her," he said. A genuine individual is always there for me. The person I love is still there every minute of every day, and that is my life. She does, unfortunately, forget things, but don't we all? Her situation, I assume, is analogous to having a chronic hangover. It grows worse as portions of the brain store less and less information until some of them vanish entirely.


Nora Forster's career as a media executive has netted her a significant fortune. Her net worth is unknown, although her husband, John Lydon, is thought to be worth around $1 million as of 2020. The pair now lives a rich and abundant lifestyle.
