David Bowie and Iman had one of the fairytale love stories. However, it’s been almost seven years since Bowie passed away. The supermodel has not been with anyone else. Iman spoke with Hoda Kotb about their romance and said she thinks of Bowie “every day and every minute.”
Iman opens up on David Bowie
“I have a necklace I’m wearing under here that has his name on it… I’ve worn it since that first week after David passed away,” Iman shared on Wednesday’s SiriusXM Today Show Radio special. “I think of him all the time.”
Iman, who wed Bowie in 1992, went on to say how it bothers her when people refer to the icon as her “late husband.”
“Don’t call my husband ‘late.’ He’s not my late husband. He’s my husband. And he’ll always be,” she declared. “I think if you’re lucky, you’ll experience [a love] like that, you know what I mean? It’s luck and I was lucky.”
Bowie’s death in January 2016 had shocked fans as he passed away following a secret battle with cancer at age 69. The English songwriter and Iman share one child, daughter Lexie, who is now 22. Iman said that despite her husband’s legendary career, she always knew family always came first in his mind.
“Because he always made time and he chose towards the end not to tour… and stay at home,” she told Kotb. “He really, really paid every attention to the family… at the end of his days he could say, ‘I’ve given them all I have.'”
Iman, who was promoting the upcoming documentary Supreme Models: The Story of Iconic Black Women Who Revolutionized Fashion, smiled as she recalled Bowie’s sense of humor.
