(Newser) – Pattie Boyd, ex-wife of rock legends George Harrison and Eric Clapton, opens up for the first time about their love triangle and her two tempestuous marriages in her new book Wonderful Tonight, ABC reports. A model who met Harrison when she played an extra in the "A Hard Days Night," Boyd was the inspiration for the Beatles' "Something in the Way She Moves" as well as  Clapton's "Layla" and "Wonderful Tonight."

Boyd introduced Harrison to meditation, which resulted in Beatles trip to India in 1968. But "after India," Boyd writes, "our lives and our relationship seemed to fall apart." Clapton became close friends with Harrison, and then confessed to falling in love with his wife. Boyd's marriage to Harrison ended when he cheated on her with a close friend, she says. Her subsequent marriage Clapton, too, ended in infidelity.
