Supermodel Iman Loses Mum Two Months After The Death Of Her Husband David Bowie

4956684Just two months after losing her iconic rocker husband to liver cancer at the age of 69, Iman has lost another loved one.

The Somali-born supermodel’s mom, Marian Abdulmajid, has died, she announced on Twitter Friday morning.

“Saddened by the death of my mom Maryan Baadi. May Allah grant her the highest jennah #ripmaryanbadi,” wrote David Bowie’s widow.

Iman, 60, has not specified the cause of her mother’s death.

Abdulmajid was a gynecologist, according to She apparently named her daughter Iman, which means “faith” in Arabic, to steel her against the trials she’d face growing up as a girl in Muslim East Africa.
Iman’s parents, both activists, fought for Somalia’s independence in 1960, the model said in a 2014 Guardian interview.
“I remember when I was five how busy our house was. People would come in the middle of the night, meetings after meetings, and protests and all that. I grew up in the midst of all of that,” she said.

“And she instilled that in me. The fact that nobody can take your self-worth unless you give your consent,” she added. “She always said to me that there is nothing that the boys can do, because I had two brothers, that you can’t do, if not better.”

The model was still reeling from the death of Bowie, her husband of 24 years, who died Jan. 10 after a secret 18-month cancer battle.

She had recently inched back toward normalcy, resuming her inspirational social media posts early last month.

“‘Love & Gratitude,’ Iman,” read her first Instagram message to fans after the Starman’s death.
