David Bowie & Iman: Interracial Power Couple
On 10th January 2015, the sad news that David Bowie had died from Cancer, was announced.
The iconic star will definitely be missed by many especially his wife Iman.
The 60-year-old supermodel shared an image on Twitter saying, ‘The struggle is real, but so is God,’ along with the caption ‘Rise’, on the day of Bowie’s death.
Another of the touching tweets posted by Iman included the message: ‘Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory.’
In the mid-70s, English singer-songwriter David Bowie reached the pinnacle of success in America with his hit single Fame. Around the same time, 1976, Somali supermodel Iman landed her first modeling gig for Vogue. This helped her gain visibility among prominent designers including Yves Saint-Laurent, Donna Karen, and Versace.
The Bowie and Iman romance blossomed after a blind date in 1990 and married two years later; for most of their 23-year marriage, they kept their private life, well, private.
Bowie, worth $230 million, and Iman, worth $25 million, got hitched in 1992.
It’s great to see a marriage last and only death could tear them apart!
Their secret to long-lasting passion? “Mouth-to-mouth resuscitation generally does the trick!” Bowie told People in 2005.
