David Bowie’s death has shocked the music industry. The person who is in most grief is his wife Iman. They were together for more than two decades. It was love at first sight. David Bowie and Iman tied the knot two years after they met.
David Bowie and Iman went against the trend of the short-lived marital relationship. David was a great singer for sure, but he was also a dedicated husband. Their relationship started in 1990. David once said they were “naming the children the first night we met.” He also mentioned, “My attraction to her was immediate and all-encompassing. I couldn’t sleep for the excitement of our first date. That she would be my wife, in my head, was a done deal.”
The feeling was not mutual, though. Iman said, “I didn’t want to get into a relationship with somebody like him,” adding, “But 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.”
They were thoroughly in love all throughout a relationship that spanned for a quarter of a century. She said, “My marriage is exactly as fabulous as you all would think.”
She hinted about the state of David’s health days before his death. She may have lost her husband, but the love story of David Bowie and Iman is never going to end.
