Olivia was the second of five children of Mary Louise Negrete, a seamstress and Esiquiel L. Arias, a dry cleaner. After her parents immigrated to the US, she enrolled at Hawthorne High School in California, from which she matriculated in 1965. She began working as a secretary using her shorthand and typing skills, before between 1971 and 1973 travelling across Europe, and upon her return to the states, in 1973 she began serving as a secretary for the Los Angeles, California-based A&M Records. This engagement provided the basis for her, now quite impressive, overall net worth.

In 1974, A&M Records acquired an exclusive deal to distribute George Harrison’s fifth studio album – “Dark Horse”, during which Olivia and George became curious about each other; George even sent his friends to the A&M headquarters to check her out. Later, Harrison flew to LA where they finally met. And the rest is history… Olivia joined Harrison on his first solo tour across the states with Ravi Shankar and after the tour Olivia and George moved in together at his Friar Park mansion in Henley-on-Thames in England. In August 1978, the couple had their only child, a son who is now famous as composer Dhani Harrison, while in September they married. Despite George Harrison’s fame and huge net worth, as a family they lived quietly and far from the mass media, often traveling between their homes in Hawaii, California as well as in Australia.

In 1990, Olivia Harrison – with the help of the other Beatles-wives Dhani Harrison, Linda McCartney and Barbara Bach as well as Elton John – founded a charity organization Romanian Angel Appeal, focused on helping the orphaned children of Romania. Under Olivia’s influence, later that year “Nobody’s Child: Romanian Angel Appeal” charity album was released featuring tracks from, among others, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr and Guns N’ Roses. Olivia Harrison represents a great example of how someone who has plenty, uses her impressive net worth to help those who have little.

In 1999, Olivia and George survived an attack by a deranged man who invaded their home and stabbed George several times. After hitting him with a table lamp, Olivia and George were transported to the local hospital where they were treated for their injuries.

After George Harrison’s death in 2001, Olivia produced a memorial concert in 2002, simply called “Concert for George” featuring Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney as well as Gary Brooker, Joe Brown and Billy Preston among plenty of others artists. In 2006, Olivia released her first book “Concert for George: A Celebration of the Life of George Harrison“. At the press conference in 2009 when Microsoft presented “The Beatles: Rock Band” video game, Olivia appeared on stage promoting the game and celebrating the memory of her husband. In 2011, she co-authored a book “George Harrison: Living in the Material World” which was later adapted into a movie documentary by Martin Scorsese. Doubtlessly, these engagements have left an impact on Olivia Harrison’s total wealth.
