Bowie kept his liver cancer battle mostly private, and succumbed to the disease just days after turning 69 which coincided with the release of his 25th and final studio album Blackstar. 

It comes after Iman reflected on her grief following David’s death and said she refer to him as her ‘late’ husband. 

The supermodel, who was married to the star from 1992 to 2016, opened up to British Vogue in December.

Speaking about how she has to life following his passing she told the publication: ‘He is not my ‘late husband’. He is my husband. I don’t mind at all being referred to as ‘David Bowie’s wife’. But I always remind people that I existed before I met him. 

‘And he was also very particular. He never introduced me by saying, ‘Meet my wife.’ He’d always say, ‘Meet Iman, my wife.’ So we both already had our own identity. We were separate but together.’

On finding the space to grieve privately after his death she added: ‘It was too much. Too much. We lived a very private life and suddenly it felt like there was a target on mine and my daughter’s head. 

‘It got to the point where we had to leave our home [in New York City] because the public were always at the front door. Which I admire. I get it. But there was a point where it was like: ‘OK, go home now.’
