The couple got married back in 1992 before welcoming their daughter Alexandria Zahra Jones, 8 years later.

Sadly, David Bowie succumbed to cancer on January 10, 2016, after a private eighteen month battle that was kept hidden from the public. This was just days after the acclaimed musician celebrated his 69th birthday and released of his 25th album, Blackstar. According to sources, David Bowie was not aware that his cancer was in a terminal stage until just 3 months before he died.

Iman explained to her that one should always be at the right time in life if you are ready for a long lasting relationship. If you want it to work then, it should become your priority in life. She continued and said if you take your career to be very important to you, then don’t get married and have children; this is because something will give.
