David Bowie's widow Iman says she'll never remarry after 'true love's' death

David Bowie’s widow, Iman, has said she will never remarry after his death, describing him as her ‘true love’.

The model, who was married to the music legend from 1992 until his death in 2016, opened up about their relationship and her love for her late husband.

‘David is in our hearts and minds on a daily basis, for all of us,’ she said. ‘You know, this was my true love. My daughter once asked me if I would ever marry again and I said, “Never.”‘

Gracing the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, she added to the magazine: ‘He’s hiding in plain sight. His fans are still around, his music is still relevant. And on the day of his passing, I went on a hike and a bluebird flew in front of me. A bluebird, above all things.’

Iman, 65, also described their relationship as an ‘everyday marriage’, adding that they had an ‘beautiful, ordinary life’ together.

The star has taken up painting and hiking since her husband’s death, explaining that, while she does get lonely, she ‘likes her own company’.

In 2016, Bowie tragically died at the age of 69 after suffering from liver cancer for 18 months.

Iman has since been keeping his memory alive, sharing photos of the late star on social media and posting heartfelt tributes for her husband.

Last year on their wedding anniversary, the model shared some gorgeous throwback snaps of their big day.

She could be seen holding a gorgeous bouquet as she posed in her off-white gown, alongside her husband in a suit.

Letting the photos speak for themselves, Iman simply added in the caption: ‘June 6th, Wedding Anniversary #BowieForever #EternalLove’.

The pair have one child together, their daughter Alexandria Zahra Jones. Iman also has a daughter from her previous marriage with Spencer Haywood, Zulekha.

She is also stepmother to Bowie’s son Duncan Jones, who he had with his ex-wife Angela.

Recently, Duncan paid tribute to his late father after finding the scarf he wore in his introduction to The Snowman.

The rock legend was enlisted to provide an introduction to the iconic Christmas short film for US and VHS audiences, after The Snowman – based on the picture book by Raymond Briggs – first aired on Boxing Day 1982. 

In the intro, Bowie visits ‘his’ childhood attic, where he finds a blue snowman-patterned scarf in a drawer, like the one the boy in the film is given, and says: ‘One winter I made a really big snowman. He got this scarf for me.

‘You see, he was a real snowman.’

It seems that the Ziggy Stardust star packed up the scarf among his things for safekeeping, as nearly 40 years on, his son Duncan found it in storage.

Sharing a photo of himself wearing it, director wrote: ‘Went looking for sock monkeys in the storage boxes and FOUND THE SCARF!!! YAY!’

The February issue of Harper’s Bazaar is on sale from 6 January 2021.
