In Eric's autobiography (p.85), he writes: At the Speakeasy Club, I had first met one of the great loves of my life, a very beautiful French model, Charlotte Martin. I was smitten with her from the very first moment I set eyes on her. She was very beautiful in an austere way, classically French, with long legs and an incredible figure, but it was her eyes that got on me. They were slightly Asian with a downward slant, and a little bit sad. We started dating right away and soon moved in together into a flat in Regents Park belonging to Stigwood's partner, David Shaw, who was the financial brains behind the organization.
Charlotte was an incredible girl, more interested in films, art and literature than in modeling, and we had a great time together.
According to Pattie Boyd's biography "Wonderful Tonight" "I [Pattie Boyd] was friendly with a French girl [Charlotte] who was going out with Eric Clapton. She was always flirtatious with George, but so were a lot of girls and he, of course, loved it. then she and Eric broke up - Eric told her to leave - and she came to stay with us at Kinfauns".
"It was 1st January 1969, and George and I [Pattie Boyd] had seen in the new year at Cilla Black`s house. [...] We arrived home in good spirits but then everything went swiftly downhill. The French girl didn`t seem remotely upset with Eric and was uncomfortably close to George. Something was going on between them, and I questioned George. He told me my imagination was running away whit me, I was paranoid. Soon I couldn't stand it so I went to London [...]. Six days later George phoned me to say that the girl had gone and I went home".
Both George and Eric had said about it in interview, but they had never said this girl`s name. Eric said: "The reason why I deprived him of the wife is that he had put out his hand to my girl first. I thought that I revenged it on him".
And George said: "The reason why he deprived me of the wife is that I deprived him of the girl first. He revenged it on me".
