Sienna Miller admits she once accidentally flooded David Bowie’s New York apartment


Sienna Miller revealed her close ties to the legendary late musician David Bowie during an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show.

The 40-year-old actress admitted her mother worked as his assistant years ago, and despite never meeting the iconic rock star, she did manage to make an impact on the Space Oddity singer, albeit if only for an inconvenient moment in time. 

Miller recalled living in the same building as Bowie in the beginning of her career, and hosting a party, only for her bathroom to flood which caused his apartment to also overflow with water.
