You wouldn't want to cross Carly Simon.

The You're So Vain singer has not only revealed her most famous hit was in part about ex love Warren Beatty but she has left James Bond shaken and stirred too.

The American has released her memoirs called Boys in the Trees in which she leaves Sean Connery quivering like a leaf.

Carly revealed how the suave Scot asked her and her older sister for a threesome while sailing from London to New York in 1965.

She said she politely refused to be a "Simon sisters sandwich" although her older sister Lucy did spend the following night with Connery.

However, not content with exposing Bond's licence to thrill, Carly also reveals how Bianca Jagger almost wrecked her marriage before it had begun.

She claims Rolling Stone Mick's then wife called her fiance James Taylor the night before they were due to get hitched, begging him not to go through with it.

She writes: "James and I were in bed, getting ready for the big day, when the phone rang and James answered. It was Bianca Jagger.

"She told James he shouldn't marry me because her husband and I were having an affair.

"She muttered some things I couldn't believe she was saying. Then James said, 'I'm sure that's not true. Carly has told me about it and it's not what you think. I trust my wife-to-be. I trust Carly'."

It seems there is no end to who Carly has included in her book but needless to say, I would imagine a few are now singing "You're Such A Pain. Yes, this song is about you".


FAMILY BOND Carly, right, and Lucy
