“While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.”

On the day of David’s death, Iman shared another poignant message via Instagram:

“The struggle is real, but so is God.”

  • Its so very true that in the moment we dont see what we are creating at the time. But afterwards when we look back we think ‘wow…that was really special’


  • I can’t say I was a huge David Bowie fan (just never really exposed to his work) but I do feel for his family. Iman’s quote is just beautiful and true.


  • Deepest condolences to Iman, Alexandria, Duncan and family. I hold out a hope that when we leave this world we will be reunited with loved ones.


  • I saw David Bowie in 2004 and it was one of the best experiences of my life! I’ve been a huge fan since first seeing Labyrinth, which is still my favourite movie, when I was a young child. Such a brilliant artist! The world has certainly lost a treasure, but I’m sure wherever he is now he’s making the world a better place.


  • What a talented artist he was.


  • To David Bowie a tribute from me as from my era he was and is you see,
    He was brilliant,extraordinary and diverse in his views, Being himself as he did choose
    As a person,singer and artist etc,way before his time in every way he could be
    Will be remembered by mainy in various and many cameleonic life time a spirit set free
    i symathise with his familyand friends too,but he will live on in history for eternity too


  • its such a hard time for his family – I wish them all well.


  • They were such a great couple. I’m glad that David Bowie could die surrounded but his loved ones. :-(


  • Such a shock. My thoughts are with his entire family.


  • So sorry to see this man go so soon. He was an inspiration to many and a lot of ‘stars’ would do well to follow his footsteps. He will be sadly missed. RIP


  • It must be even harder to lose someone when it’s so public.


  • may he rest in peace


  • Daid Bowie was a legend, my era too,so sad and glad he ied peacefully too,with loved ones round him at the end, His wife’s instergrams say deeply she loved and does still, pain dulls but loved ones continue to remember and miss their partner still.
    As said am in his age bracket to and have lost loved ones, hurt deeply too, but have the notion in my head. How glad they were in my life ,lucky felt their love (as truly there are those who have never felt or been loved met a lot on my journey)and the pain and sadness their leaving felt my heart bled. But treasure them dearly and always will.. been blessed with memories that last for ever still


  • Such a creative man indeed ! My thoughts & prayers are going out to his wife and children when they mourn the loss of their hero.


  • RIP Wonderfully amazing David.
    Sending loving wishes to the family.
