Now a close friend of the iconic musician has revealed that before he met his second wife at a Los Angeles party in 1990, Bowie was desperately lonely and did not enjoy much of a social life.

Teddy Antolin, Bowie's pal and personal hairdresser, revealed: "David was very lonely. It was so sad - all this hard work David did each day and then he was alone."

He also recalled the first time that the loved-up couple met, adding to The Sunday People: "David arrived in a white Mustang sports car, wearing white jeans and a white jacket, all denim.


"Iman showed up in a black Mercedes wearing all black leather. And I thought, what could be more perfect.

"The minute she walked in all the attention went to her, she just claimed the room. She had a big smile and her and David looked at each other and it was love at first sight, you could feel the electricity, something went off.

"They spent the night talking to each other like they had known each other forever. They were looking at each other like, 'Now what, shall we skip dessert and go home?'

"There was no one else in their lives but those two from then on."


The couple married in 1992 and Iman inspired Bowie to make huge lifestyle changes, including giving up alcohol and drugs

Teddy added: "David managed to become ¬sober when he met Iman. He decided, 'I met her, I'm changing my life, I've got to impress this woman and step up' and he did.

"He did everything to change any kind of bad habits he had and it was remarkable because David never had a drink after that or anything."
