Harrison’s Widow Leans on Boyd

ContactMusic.com
George Harrison’s widow Olivia is still struggling to get over his death, but she is receiving staunch support from Pattie Boyd -the late Beatle's first wife. Boyd and Harrison divorced in 1977 before the ex-model married Eric Clapton. But the former couple remained close, and Harrison's second wife Olivia is grateful to Boyd for helping her come to terms with her grief.
The pals were spotted socializing together earlier this week (05 Jun 06) at a charity extravaganza organized by British aristocrat the Earl of March at his home in
Sussex, England. Olivia said, "It's great to see her, We're good friends. I'm getting out and about again but it's hard, really hard." Harrison died in 2001 following a long battle with cancer. He was 58.

 

Now Muse Pattie Tries Going Solo
June 7, 2006; Daily Express

She was the muse behind the greatest songs of her two husbands, George Harrison and Eric Clapton, but Pattie Boyd is now without a man after splitting with her partner of 14 years, property developer Rod Weston.
At a celebrity bash in Sussex this week, model turned photographer Pattie, 62, who inspired Harrison's Something and Clapton's Layla, spent most of the evening in conversation with the woman who replaced her in George's affections, his second wife and widow Olivia. "Pattie and I didn't arrange to come together but it's great to see her. We're good friends," said Olivia, 58, who joined guests who were ferried from
London
on the Orient-Express to the lavish bash organized by the Earl of March for the opening of a new club and Ralph Lauren shop at his stately home, Goodwood.
Olivia is starting to throw herself back into public life nearly five years after George's death but her husband is never far from her thoughts. "I'm getting out and about again but it is hard, really hard," petite  Mexican-born Olivia, mother of
Harrison
's musician son Dhani, said. She is in dispute over sites for a tribute to her late husband with the council at Henley, near the Oxfordshire mansion in which she lived with George, and is no nearer to a solution. She told us: "There still isn't a memorial to George that I would be happy about."
Pattie, meanwhile, who is to launch an exhibition of her work tomorrow at
London's Proud Galleries, has revealed she is living on her own "for the first time ever". She added that, at times: "I have a real wobbly and feel lonely and upset." She had been ensconced with Weston, eight years her junior, after they met following her divorce from the unfaithful Clapton. However, Pattie reacts to the prospect of her friends attempting to pair her off with a new man with "horror". A friend confirmed last night: "She and Rod are not together any more."
