Iman's Facebook Page Foretold David Bowie's Death Before the News Broke
Her posts indicated something was amiss.
David Bowie passed away Sunday, just two days after his 69th birthday. Despite his long-time battle with cancer, the news came as surprise to fans, who initially took the announcement as a hoax. But followers of both Bowie and his wife, model Iman, may have had prior inclination that something was amiss.
On January 8, two days before, she'd reposted a tribute to Bowie, the caption reading "i will love you til i die, i will see you in the sky #tonight" happy birthday mr. bowie."
Less than eight hours later, she shared a telling quote.
That evening, she offered up a throwback of Bowie in his prime.
And, finally, on the morning of the announcement, a sentiment indicating her present state of mind.
The 60-year-old Somalian-American supermodel married Bowie in 1992. The two share one daughter, Alexandria Zahra Jones, and two respective children from former relationships, Zulekha Haywood and Duncan Jones.
Their own 25-year relationship seemed nothing more than magical, Iman sharing in '14 that she loved Bowie for who he was underneath the stardom:
"I fell in love with David Jones. Bowie is just a persona. He's a singer, an entertainer. David Jones is a man I met."
All our thoughts are with Bowie's family at this tragic time.
