“And there were other women. That really hurt. In India George had become fascinated by the god Krishna, who was always surrounded by young maidens, and came back wanting to be some kind of Krishna figure, a spiritual being with lots of concubines. He actually said so. And no woman was out of bounds. I was friendly with a French girl who was going out with Eric Clapton. She was always flirtatious with George, but so were a lot of girls and he, of course, loved it. Then she and Eric broke up – Eric told her to leave – and she came to stay with us at Kinfauns.
It was 1 January 1969, and George and I had seen in the new year at Cilla Black’s house. She was an old friend of the Beatles, one of the originals from Liverpool, and gave fantastic parties. We arrived home in good spirits but then everything went swiftly downhill. The French girl didn’t seem remotely upset about Eric and was uncomfortably close to George. Something was going on between them, and I questioned George. He told me my imagination was running away with me, I was paranoid.
Soon I couldn’t stand it so I went to London to stay with Belinda and Jean-Claude. Six days later George phoned me to say that the girl had gone and I went home.
I was shocked that George could do such a thing to me. It might have been different if I had been a stronger, more confident person: I might have guessed that, with his infidelity, he was just being a boy and would get over it, that it didn’t mean he didn’t love me, but my ego was too fragile and I couldn’t see it as anything other than betrayal. I felt unloved and miserable.”

Pattie remembers the heartache she felt the first time George cheated on her….but he needed her, so she went back…
“This band was like… They were like a single person. It was an odd phenomena, in fact, that they seemed to move together and think together. It was almost like a little family unit.” - Eric Clapton, Living in the Material World
“Much later in the evening, George appeared. He was morose, and his mood was not improved by walking into a party that had been going on for several hours and most of the people there were out of it. He didn’t want to speak to anyone, just to find me. He kept asking, ‘Where’s Pattie?’ but no one seemed to know. He was about to leave when he spotted me in the garden with Eric. It was early morning, just getting light, and very misty. He came over to us and said, ‘What’s going on?’
To my complete horror, Eric said, ‘I have to tell you, man, that I’m in love with your wife.’
I wanted to die.
George was furious. He turned to me and said, ‘Well, are you going with him or coming with me?’
And I said, ‘George, I’m coming home.’
I followed him to his car, we got into it and he sped off. When we got home I went to bed and he disappeared into his recording studio.”
Pattie remembers but doesn’t tell us about that car ride home with George….
