Jenny Boyd.


Helen Mary "Jenny" Boyd (born 8 November 1947) is a former English model. She quit her modelling career in the 1960s after discovering Transcendental Meditation, and she soon considered modelling a "waste of her time." She later became a clinical consultant and author. She is the younger sister of 1960s model and photographer, Pattie Boyd (first wife of Beatles' lead guitarist George Harrison and blues guitar legend Eric Clapton) and the older sister of Paula Boyd.

Her older sister, Pattie, had a favourite childhood doll named Jenny, hence Helen's nickname. The first six years of Jenny's life were spent in Kenya, East Africa. In the mid-fifties, her family moved to London.

Personal life

Despite Boyd being the inspiration of British folk musician Donovan's song "Jennifer Juniper", they have never been in a relationship, though Donovan himself admitted having a crush on her. The song was released as a single in March 1968 and on the album The Hurdy Gurdy Man later that year. Also in 1968, Boyd travelled with Donovan and her sister, Pattie Boyd, to Rishikesh, India, to attend a training session in Transcendental Meditation held by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Later Jenny shared an apartment with Magic Alex of Apple Corps's Apple Electronics subdivision. She also worked at the Apple Boutique in London.

Boyd was fifteen when she met drummer Mick Fleetwood, who, at the time, was in a band called The Bo Street Runners and would later co-found Fleetwood Mac. From thereon, they began an on-and-off relationship that would last fifteen years. They eventually married in June 1970 and they had two daughters, Lucy and Amy. After divorcing Fleetwood (and remarrying and divorcing him a second time), Boyd married drummer Ian Wallace in 1984 but they later divorced. She has been the sister-in-law to both George Harrison and Eric Clapton through their respective marriages to her sister Pattie from 1966-1977 and 1979-1989 respectively.
