Clapton spotted alone
A fan spotted Eric Clapton walking alone, probably coming back from picking up his mail at the end of his several mile long driveway, on the afternoon of October 23, 2014. Was he all alone? “Definitely yes,” says the fan, adding that “He was wearing a large sweater and looked really cute!”
Is Eric back on the market?
A rep for Eric Clapton was not immediately available for comment.
Truth or rumor, when news that the guitarist - known for having been romantically involved with Naomi Campbell, Sheryl Crow, Carla Bruni, Pattie Boyd or Patsy Kensit - was splitting hit the internet Friday (October 24), Twitter immediately exploded with pithy commentary. It seems everyone had an opinion on the matter:
“Has anyone Eric’s phone number?”

“So very sad… Those 2 were so great as a couple. So cute together.”

Based on the facts (Clapton spotted alone with a cute sweater), is there trouble in paradise or is it much ado about nothing?
