One of the most famous scandals in the music industry belongs to singer Eric Clapton and model Pattie Boyd. When the two first met in 1970, Pattie Boyd was already involved in a romantic affair with no other than George Harrison. Yes, Beatle Geroge Harrison (who was also Clapton’s friend).
On 27 March 1979, Clapton and Boyd were married in Tucson, Arizona, and stuck together for almost a decade. The beautiful British model and photographer was the inspiration behind some of the greatest love songs Clapton wrote, such as “Wonderful Tonight” and “Layla.” Apparently, they both remained close friends with George Harrison.
Sonny and Cher

Within no time, they became the most recognized couple in the entertainment industry during the 1960s and 1970s. In the late 1970s, the two had a very public and ugly divorce with custody issues over their child. The two are best known for their heartwarming duet. "I've Got You, Babe."

He was everything every woman wanted, and she was a young and innocent girl who had to cope with a lot of heartaches and a lot of public shaming. Priscilla became a movie star in her own right, and Elvis remained the greatest of them all, even after he passed away.
George Harrison and Pattie Boyd

Boyd was not the bad girl in this story, as Harrison reportedly had numerous overlapping relationships that Boyd found very difficult to accept. She suffered tremendously and found comfort in Clapton's arms. Despite the romantic triangle, Harrison and Boyd remained friends for many years until he sadly passed away in 2001.
