NEW YORK (MEDIA GENERAL) — Model and actress Iman was married to rock legend David Bowie from 1992 until his death. Bowie, the chameleon-like star who transformed the sound — and the look — of rock with his audacious creativity and his sexually ambiguous makeup and costumes, died of cancer Sunday. He was 69 and had just released a new album.
Bowie, whose hits included “Space Oddity,” ”Fame,” ”Heroes” and “Let’s Dance,” died surrounded by family, representative Steve Martin said early Monday. The singer had fought cancer for 18 months.
Iman posted throwback photos of Bowie on her Facebook page starting last week. Her reposts showed a vibrant Bowie at different times in his life and they included some motivational quotes for surviving tough times. This is what she posted Sunday, the day Bowie died.
Between January 7-9, Iman posted 13 times specifically about Bowie and his many adventures.
