According to the recent rumours doing the round, The Beatles’ George Harrison and pop diva Madonna had an affair.

A source has revealed in the Martin Scorsese directed two part documentary, George Harrison: Living In The Material World, that he had a heavy fling with Madonna on the set of the 1986 film Shanghai Surprise, while she was married to her first husband Sean Penn.

Madonna, at that time was deeply unhappy with Penn, and said she found Harrison, who was executive producer of the film, ‘very understanding and sympathetic’, reports dailymail.co.uk. He came to see them filming in Macau, and also met her several times in London before and after the production.

Madonna’s brother, Christopher Ciccone, recalls that, Harrison treated his sister with ‘kid gloves’. The documentary portrays the ‘quiet Beatler’ as a sensitive, spiritual man with serious weaknesses when it came to women.
