The daughter of David Bowie and supermodel Iman is 19 years old today, and she has grown into a real beauty. The freckled Lexi Jones (which is Bowie’s real last name), we must say, doesn’t look too much like mom or dad.
Despite being the child of two very famous parents, one of the greatest musicians of the last century and Somali model of world fame, Lexi did not grow up under the spotlight. Her parents wanted to avoid it at all costs.
Lexi, whose full name is Alexandria Zahra Jones, lives in Los Angeles and is trying to break through as an artist. Recently, she revealed on her Instagram profile that she has not seen her mother Iman for six months due to coronavirus pandemic and that she misses her.
“Everyone please stay inside I haven’t seen my mom for 6 months because we live on opposite coasts and it is very difficult to leave ny right now but I’m a child and I miss her dearly so pls be party poopers this one time so it doesn’t take 2 f***ing years to see her again thank you!”, she wrote.
While Iman lives in New York, where their home is, Lexi is stuck in California.
Otherwise, Lexi is not exposed in public; even before the musician’s death, the whole family lived a secluded life. Bowie and Iman were married in a small and closed ceremony in Switzerland in 1992 and remained married until 2016, when he died of liver cancer. Iman became the stepmother to Duncan Jones, his son whom he got with his first wife Angela, and Lexi is their only child.
Iman said a long time ago that she does not want her daughter to follow in her footsteps in the world of modeling or become a child star because of her famous parents. In an interview a few years ago today, the 64-year-old model said:
“And every agency, every designer, called me to say: ‘If she wants to, we’d love for her to model for us'”, Iman said and continued: “I said: ‘No, she doesn’t. I know why they wanted to her to model – it’s because she is David Bowie’s daughter. ”
“She says I am overprotective. But I told her, this can all wait, it isn’t going anywhere. Have a life that is private while you can, because one day soon it is going to be public, so enjoy this”, Iman recalled.
