When the Beatles' company Apple Corps was in business trouble early in 1969, Eastman and Allen Klein were both considered to take the reins of the company, and of the band's careers. John Lennon favoured Klein, whose background was similar to his (raised by relatives and not his parents), and so did George Harrison and Ringo Starr. McCartney, however, was as impressed with Eastman as a future son-in-law could be. Klein preferred to work without hindrances, which the Eastmans stood to give him, while Eastman wanted sole authority over Apple. All the same, the whole band was willing to consider both sides, and see if a way could be found for Eastman and Klein to work together, or at least concurrently. Apple Corps Ltd. ...

All hopes were dashed when the two men met with the Beatles at Klein's London hotel suite. Lennon and wife-to-be Yoko Ono had not been impressed with son John Eastman's attempts to get on their good side with "arty talk about Kafka", or the way father and son both tended to patronise Lennon. Eastman exuded a dislike for Klein, and became more and more insulting as the meeting went on. Klein kept his cool, but he and Lennon in turn began needling Eastman by calling him "Epstein" (coincidentally the last name of deceased Beatles manager Brian Epstein). Eastman finally lost his temper, and turned red shouting at Klein; Lennon made his mind up then and there that neither of the Eastmans would ever represent him. Harrison and Starr followed suit, and all three signed a management contract with Klein, while McCartney stuck by the Eastmans, and signed with them - further dividing the already-troubled group.

After the loss of Northern Songs to Britain's ATV later in the year, which neither Eastman nor Klein could prevent or soften, Eastman encouraged his son-in-law to invest in other music publishing companies.
