After Months Of Silence, David Bowie’s Wife Releases Heartbreaking News About Late Husband
LifeAspire Staff 6/12/2017
Twenty-five years ago, David Bowie first laid eyes on fashion model Iman - and life would never be the same again for either of them. The breathtaking supermodel from Somalia captured everyone's attention from the runway, but David couldn't stop staring at her at a dinner party where they first met in 1990.
The rock star had confessed publicly that it was love at first sight. He knew she was the one for him.
"My attraction to her was immediate and all-encompassing. That she would be my wife, in my head, was a done deal."
David's affection was reciprocated by Iman, now 61, and the were married in a posh Italian ceremony two years later. The couple became a family when they welcomed Alexandria "Lexi" Zahra Jones in 2000. While he dressed outlandishly for his concerts and public appearances, he was a down-to-earth dad and hubby at home, Iman confessed.
"As I always said: I fell in love with David Jones. I did not fall in love with David Bowie. Bowie is just a persona. He's a singer, an entertainer. David Jones is a man I met."
While the couple was happily, dreamily in love for more than 20 years, sadly, their Cinderella romance came to an abrupt end. David fought valiantly against liver cancer, eventually succumbing to the disease in January 2016 at age 69.

Iman opted to remain fairly secluded and out of the public eye while mourning the loss of her husband. But she was sure to honor his memory and their life together with special posts on social media.
For a few days leading up to what would've been the legendary rocker's 70th birthday on January 8, Iman shared tributes to him. Recently, she shared one that celebrated their love story, which has been one of Hollywood's most romantic fairytales come true.
"I would walk forever, just to be in your arms again. June 6th #BowieForever"

Despite David being gone for more than a year now, Iman is still celebrating the couple's deep love on what would've been their 25th anniversary. How heartbreaking yet beautiful.
