Harrison's Widow Leans On Boyd

Subscribe to Eric Clapton alerts

GEORGE HARRISON'S widow Olivia is still struggling to get over his death, but she is receiving staunch support from PATTI 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 socialising together earlier this week (begs05JUN06) at a charity extravaganza organised 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.
