Carrie Fisher’s death left a lot of people heartbroken, including her former husband Paul Simon. The esteemed musician was only briefly married to Fisher, but the pair are said to have been in a complex relationship for more than a decade.

Simon expressed his sadness over the loss of his ex-wife on Twitter, as many others did. On Wednesday, he shared with followers his belief that Fisher’s death had come “too soon,” adding that Tuesday “was a horrible day.” The musician recalled his former spouse fondly, but kept his message of grief brief.

Fisher and Simon were married for just one year from 1983 to 1984. In his biography, titled “Homeward Bound,” author Peter Ames Carlin shared many details of both the marriage and the turbulent relationship that followed. According to the book, the pair met in the 80s and moved into a New York City apartment together almost immediately. Simon is said to have taken issue with Fisher’s wild nature, but neither wanted to breakup. They married, ultimately splitting because of Fisher’s heavy drug use. Although their marriage ended, Carlin wrote that they continued dating off and on for a number of years afterward.

Although Fisher, 60, was only married once, she had many love interests during her lifetime. Among them, her “Star Wars” co-star Harrison Ford. In November, Fisher opened up about having had an affair with Ford during filming during an appearance on the “Graham Norton Show.” At the time, he was married to Mary Marquardt. While the “intense” affair only lasted a number of months, Fisher and Ford remained close over the years. Ford even paid tribute to Fisher, calling her “brilliant, original, Funny and emotionally fearless.”

“She lived her life, thoughts are with her daughter Billie, her mother Debbie, her brother Todd, and her many friends. We will all miss her,” he said (via LA Times).

Other male suitors in Fisher’s life included Bryan Lourd, with whom she shares a daughter, and Dan Aykroyd. Lourd, who left Fisher in the mid-90s, has not spoken out about her death at this time. Aykroyd recalled Fisher — whom he starred alongside in “Blues Brothers” — as being “beautiful brilliant funny wise kind and generous.”
