It’s sadly true. The iconic, timeless, and pioneering David Bowie has died after a nearly two year battle with cancer.
His family released a statement Sunday saying:
“David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.”
The British singer was 69-years-old.
He leaves behind a wife, Iman, as well as two children, Duncan Jones (born 1971) and Alexandria “Lexi” Zahra Jones (born 2000), and millions of fans in mourning across the world.
Bowie was known for his music, pushing boundaries of gender and sexuality, and acting performances – such as his legendary role in Labyrinth.
He will be deeply missed!
