The late David Bowie’s wife Iman is seemingly relying on her faith in God as she copes with the death of her music legend husband.
Iman is seemingly relying on her faith in God to cope with the death of her husband David Bowie on Sunday (10.01.16).
The 60-year-old model’s music legend husband lost his 18-month battle with cancer yesterday and passed away at the age of 69 surrounded by his family.
Iman is yet to publicly comment of the death of David but she cryptically posted on Twitter yesterday the caption “The struggle is real but so is God”.
The Somali-born beauty also made a sad post on January 9 – the day after her late spouse’s birthday – in which she told her followers: “Sometimes you never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”
Iman and David married in April 1992 in a private ceremony in Lausanne, and the wedding was later solemnised in June in Florence, Italy.
They had a daughter, 15-year-old Alexandria Zahra Jones, together and she also acted as stepmother to his son Duncan Jones – whose mother is the musician’s first wife Angie Bowie.
David’s filmmaker son Duncan took to his Twitter account to confirm the passing of his father – whose real name was David Jones.
He wrote: “Very sorry and sad to say it’s true. I’ll be offline for a while. Love to all.”
A statement released by the ‘Ashes to Ashes’ singer’s publicist on Facebook read: “David Bowie died peacefully surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer.
“While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.”
