Famed Somali supermodel Iman is suffering yet another loss just months after her husband David Bowie passed. The retired model, actress and entrepreneur is now preparing to lay her mother Marian Abdulmajid to rest following an 18-month battle with cancer.
Iman posted on Instagram a photo of herself, husband Bowie and her parents from their wedding day.
“Saddened by the death of my mom Maryan Baadi,” she wrote, alongside a family photo with her parents on her wedding day. “May Allah grant her the highest jennah #ripmaryanbaadi.”
Iman’s late husband was honored in New York City at Radio Music Hall this past Friday in a special tribute concert featuring over 20 artists each playing from the David Bowie songbook.
Iman, a pioneer in ethnic cosmetics and an activist for diversity in the fashion industry, is currently receiving a major outpouring of love and support from fans all across the world during what is already proving to be a pretty tough year. We are joining them by keeping Iman in our thoughts and prayers.
