Her father, Eric, married his friend’s wife? 

Eric’s first marriage was with Pattie Boyd. Pattie was married to his friend George Harrison when Eric first met her. 

Eric made music with George when they were in a band together, and eventually, Eric fell in love with Pattie and confessed it to his best friend, George

George then let Pattie choose between him and Eric, and Pattie chose Eric over George

He then tied the knot with Pattie in 1979 after she got divorced from George

Eric’s first marriage was a disaster? 

When Eric got married to his first wife, Pattie, he was obsessed with her. They were happy at the beginning, but slowly, their marriage got dark. 

Eric started cheating on Pattie with other women when he used to go out on tour. 

He fathered two children with different women despite being married to Pattie

He had an extramarital affair with Yvonne Kelly and shared a daughter named Ruth Kelly, and he also had an affair with Lory Del Santo and shared a son. 

During the marriage, Pattie even regretted leaving her ex-husband George for Eric

He was totally an alcoholic and destroyed Pattie’s life. 

Eric himself claimed that he took s*x from his wife by force and physically assaulted her under the influence of alcohol. 

Sophie lost her half-brother? 

Her father, Eric, shared his only son, Conor, with his girlfriend, Lory Del Santo

Conor was born in the year 1986 and his birth was the happiest thing that happened to Eric

Conor was the one who made Eric realize the meaning of being a father. 

Sadly, his happy days with his baby boy didn’t last long, as Conor died when he was four years old.

Just a few days before Conor’s death, Eric spent his whole day with Conor. Conor, with his mother, visited his father to spend Easter together. 

Eric then took Conor to the circus on Long Island. 

He had the best time with Conor, which made him realize that he wanted to take the responsibility of a father.

At the end of the day, Eric promised to take him to Central Zoo, but that promise couldn't be fulfilled.

Just a day before, the tragedy hit. Conor was playing hide and seek with his nanny and was running around.

Even though his nanny was just behind him, she lost sight of him for merely a few seconds, he fell down from the window of the 53rd floor, which was left open by a Janitor, and he died. 

Eric was a racist?

Eric, in his past, was totally different. He was an alcoholic, a drug abuser, and a racist. 

Back in 1976, during his concert, he insulted black people, stating that England doesn’t belong to black people and they should all leave the country

Also, he said that he didn’t want any black people in his concert and his country. 

He didn’t feel bad about those things before, but now, when he looks back on his past, he feels deeply regretted and disgusted by everything that he said.
