The couple have an 18-year-old daughter together, Alexandria ‘Lexi’ Zahraand, while Bowie also has a son, Duncan Jones, from his marriage with Angela Bowie.

Bowie died on January 10 2016 in New York following a battle with cancer. He was born in Brixton, London, in 1947.

He formed his first band at the age of 15 before going on to enjoy a career defined by reinvention and daring visual presentation.
