Boyd was married to both the late Beatle George Harrison and rock icon Eric Clapton at different points in time. Harrison and the Cream rocker were famously friends, and the "My Sweet Lord" singer later gave his seal of approval to his relationship with Boyd in the late Seventies.

Boyd and Harrison tied the knot during the height of Beatlemania in 1966 and divorced 11 years later. Clapton and Boyd were married for a decade between 1979 and '89.

Boyd, who is now 79, has been quite open about both of her relationships with both men in the past, and she continues to reference them online. The "Wonderful Tonight" author recently took to Twitter and cryptically tweeted about her ex-husbands!

"I don't miss those times," she said bluntly, referencing the famous period wherein The Beatles experimented with meditation in India during the late Sixties. Harrison was an avid admirer of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as the band and their wives studied transcendental meditation. According to The Beatles Bible, Boyd became fascinated with Eastern philosophy and religion after she went on a vacation to Bombay in 1966.

"It was living in a bubble, surrounded by famous people, where all doors were open to you. But even today I lead a wonderful life..." she told the outlet.

Boyd went more in-depth in her recollection of her marriage to the "Yer Blues" singer. She would tell the Telegraph that the duo lived "A ludicrous and painful life" together.

While she didn't recall details of her marriage to Clapton during the recent aforementioned promo interviews, Clapton has publicly discussed their marriage in the past. He would dispute his ex-wife's accounts of their marriage she wrote about in "Wonderful Tonight" while promoting his own memoir in the late 2000s.

"We each have our own versions of our years together," Clapton told the New York Times in 2007. He shared his own account of a story Boyd tells in "Wonderful Tonight" wherein the two men allegedly battled for her through a guitar-playing duel.

"I went over just to hang out, he got two guitars, and we played," he told the publication. "But we were always doing that, so how do you make an everyday thing into a commodity?"

The publication also reported Boyd echoed Clapton's sentiment about their marriage. She said in an email, "[Clapton is] quite right in saying we each have our memories of our years together."
