Nearly two weeks after losing David Bowie, the love of her life, Iman Abdulmajid is putting on a brave face for her children — but it hasn't been easy. The "Space Oddity" singer died Jan. 11 after an 18-month battle with cancer. According to reports Abdulmajid, 60, is struggling to keep it together.
Us Weekly reports that the supermodel is completely heartbroken by the loss of her husband but has been "staying strong" for the sake of Alexandria Jones, 15. June Ambrose, a close friend and stylist to Abdulmajid, claims the mother-of-two is incredibly "brave." She added that Abdulmajid's courage is the thing Bowie admired most about his now-widowed wife.
"What he loved most about Iman was how brave she is," Ambrose said.
Abdulmajid isn't the only one trying to move on after Bowie's death. On Jan. 14, the Facebook page for the legendary singer, nicknamed the Star Man by fans, shared an update about his funeral arrangements. According to the post Bowie's family had planned a private memorial for him, inviting only those who knew him on a personal and professional level. They asked that fans respect their privacy and give them space to cope with their loss. The update also thanked fans for being supportive of Abdulmajid and the children she and Bowie raised together. Lastly, Bowie's camp touched on the many memorial concerts and tributes that have been arranged since the Grammy award-winner's passing. They said that, although they had not put together or endorsed any of the memorials, they were grateful to learn they were taking place.
One of the many memorial concerts arranged to honor Bowie's legacy will be taking place at Carnegie Hall in New York City. The concert was put together by friends and fellow musicians and will feature performances by Cyndi Lauper, Jakob Dylan, Perry Farrell and the Roots. Sadly, the March 31 show is completely sold out. Fans are being urged to wait it out, purchasing tickets for resale on sites like Vivid Seats and StubHub.
