Iman Opens Up About Her Love With Late Rock Legend David Bowie


Fashion entrepreneur and former supermodel Iman has kept a low profile since her husband British rock star David Bowie passed away in January. They were happily married for 24 year years, which is something like an eternity in Hollywood, and would have been together decades longer if David hadn’t lost his 18-month long battle with cancer. He was 69 when he died, making Iman a widow at the age of 60.

Understandably, she is still in mourning, avoiding public scrutiny. However, an interview that was taped while David was still alive for Oprah: Where Are They Now? has made its way to the Internet. In the interview, the Somali beauty said that, despite her career in fashion, she never gave Bowie fashion tips because ‘he is fashion.’

Though they were always secretive about their personal life together, Iman said that the secret to their long-lasting marriage is timing, as well as understanding ‘the difference between the person and the persona.’ Apart from stating that they were ready for a committed relationship when they met, she concluded that they ‘are just Iman and David’ when they are together.
