Iman had maintained silence on social media since her husband's passing in early January.
David Bowie’s widow, Iman, has broken her social media silence for the first time since the passing of her husband nearly a month ago.
Bowie’s death on January 10th from cancer triggered a massive outpouring of remembrance that’s still going on weeks later, with millions of fans and music industry figures paying tribute to their idol.
In the days leading up his death, Iman had posted a number of messages to Twitter, including: “The struggle is real, but so is God” and “Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”

On Saturday (February 6th), though, the 60 year old former model and actress posted for the first time since her husband’s passing. She put up a picture on Twitter and Instagram that simply read: “'Love & Gratitude' – Iman”. The short, poignant message has already been shared thousands of times.
Iman was Bowie’s second wife, whom he married in 1992 after a short courtship. Together, they had one daughter, Alexandria Zahra Jones, born in 2000.
She had told The Independent in 2014: “I fell in love with David Jones… …I did not fall in love with David Bowie. Bowie is just a persona. He's a singer, an entertainer. David Jones is a man I met.”
Earlier this week on Tuesday, Iman was spotted walking out and about in New York City with the family dog. Bowie’s $100 million estate had recently been divided between her, their daughter and Duncan Jones, his son from his first marriage to Angie Bowie.
Just days before his death, Bowie released his 25th and final studio album Blackstar, which spent three weeks at Number One in the UK until this week, when it was knocked off the top spot by one of Bowie’s ‘Best of’ compilations.
