Iman Doesn’t Plan To Remarry Following The Death Of David Bowie

"I still feel married."

Celebrity News

Iman is opening up about her marriage with the late musician David Bowie. The couple got married in Florence, Italy in 1992, after meeting a couple of years before.


The supermodel recalled how David "wooed" her. For example, he picked her up from the airport after she flew back from a modeling gig in Paris and one time her shoelace became untied while they were walking down the street and he got on his knees to tie her shoe.

But after 26 years together, David passed away in 2016 from cancer. Now, Iman is reflecting on their life together and spoke with People about her life now.

"There are days that are harder than others, but the memories are not all sad of why the person isn't here. The memories are now of how great it was," she said. "Sometimes I have to remind myself that I had 26 years. So I have that to sustain me."

One of the ways that she is keeping her husband's memory alive is by creating the fragrance, Love Memoir, which is exclusively sold on hsn.com.

She also has no plans of getting remarried. "No, I will not. I still feel married. Someone a few years ago referred to David as my late husband and I said 'No, he's not my late husband. He's my husband,'" she stated.

"I definitely feel his presence, especially when I look out over the glorious sunsets at our home because David loves sunsets," she says. "So in that way he is ever-present. Through my memory, my love lives."

The Somali beauty also recently stopped by Watch What Happens Live and spoke more in-depth about how she and the beloved musician met.

She revealed that the first concert she ever attended was David Bowie's Station to Station show in 1976, although they didn't meet until the '90s. Being a huge fan of the artist, she attended multiple shows and was even invited to go backstage, but she never did. They would eventually be set up on a blind date.

"He was doing [the] Sound and Vision tour, so I went to see him in L.A.," she said. "I'm usually not late for concerts because it's difficult to get in, but I was late. I was behind [the] stage. I was coming to my seat and he was just about to go on stage and he stopped. That's how we met actually and he shook my hand and said, 'I hope you have a good night.'"

She said the next day her hairstylist invited her to a birthday party, but when she got there, it was just her, David, and her hairstylist and hairstylist's boyfriend. Iman and David have been together ever since.

The couple shares a daughter together named Alexandria Jones.

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved fighting for the underdog. Something about being needed for the betterment of people’s lives has always felt very fulfilling to me. That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word. My friends and I were real-life offspring of these constructs who had a lot in common with the women of those shows. Even after enjoying a season of the similar new Showtime series Run the World, I'd had enough of stories about friends "navigating their way through" their 20s, or 30s, or 40s. I loved these shows, but thought to myself, "Why do we need a Harlem? Can't we tell other stories?"

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
