George Harrison got ‘normality’ from his wife | Entertainment


George Harrison’s widow thinks she gave the Beatles legend a “normal life”.

Olivia Harrison – who married the late musician in September 1978 – admitted there had been ‘bumps in the road’ in their marriage, but she insisted her spouse was not a ‘great runner petticoats” and that he “closed a door” on infidelity when they reunited in 1974.

She said, “I wouldn’t say great. No, no, really not. I will not tell [he was] a great womanizer.

“George was being chased and also, you know, he was a very sensual person.”

When asked if she accepted an open relationship, that was the price she paid for what they had, she told The Sunday Times magazine: “Absolutely not. I believe he was.. .. he closed a door when I met him. And we were very private. He wanted this normal life and I think that’s what I gave him.

“So, you know, during our marriage, there was a lot of flirting, there were bumps in the road. But we were solid.”

George died of lung cancer in November 2001 and Olivia recalls being shocked at how people tried to interfere with her life afterward, despite being warned it would happen by Yoko Ono , the widow of John Lennon.

She said: “I was very busy, I was managing a lot of things and the gardens and the business and the people who, you know, change.”

When asked if she was talking about the people who gave up on her life, she clarified, “I think more about the people who came in. I had to give up a few. Yoko actually said to me, ‘You don’t know what’s going to happen, but I do.’ And she was right. There were people who had other ideas about how I should live my life. And I was quite shocked by that.

“[The legal battles] took years. And after George died, I still did. I thought, no, you can’t let people walk all over you. This is not a good message for others…

“I’ve had more than one person say to me, ‘Well, Mrs. Harrison, you don’t want your business in the news. And I said, “Well, you know what? I’ve been in the papers, I don’t care. But do you want your stuff in the papers? Go ahead, make my day.” ”

Olivia and Yoko are friends and the poet has a lot of admiration for the singer and activist.

She said: “I haven’t seen her for a long time. She hasn’t been very well lately, but she’s always befriended me… We haven’t spent much time together, but she is simply beautiful.

“You know, we’d sit together in a board meeting [the Apple Corps board, of which they are both directors], and she would take everyone completely out of this realm into another realm, which I loved. He’s the most disarming person.
