David Bowie`s Daughter Candidly Shares Her Struggle with Father`s Death

Lexi Jones, daughter of David Bowie and Iman, confessed that she engaged in self-destructive behavior. It took years for her to recover.

David Bowie passed away in 2016 after battling cancer. His daughter Alexandria, born to his marriage with supermodel Iman, was only 16 at the time. She struggled deeply with her father's death. Lexi Jones openly talked about her experiences and personal upheavals during that period.
I confused living life with surviving life's days by filling my body's bottomless void, drowning myself in toxins and poison. I involved myself in things I never expected to be part of. Situating myself in situations that contributed to the already crumbling foundation of my family eventually led to lonely isolation.
I've hurt the ones I loved most with hateful words to make them feel at least a little bit of the pain I went through every day. It felt easier to label myself as a psychopath, rather than to have admitted to the lack of introspection in an effort to justify my harmful actions. Growing to be such a violent and angry individual was unbelievably contradictory to the sweet and gentle little girl I used to be, Lexi confessed.

Alexandria acknowledged that she acted destructively. "Growing up to be such a cruel and angry person was incredibly contradictory to the sweet and gentle little girl I used to be," she admitted.

Lexi shared earlier that she tried to cope through creativity. "I struggled with mental health issues. Art has always been a means of survival and escaping dark places," Bowie's daughter stated.

She grew up in New York with her parents. Iman and David loved each other and tried to live a normal life. They both devoted much time to little Alexandria. Now 68, the model has a warm, close relationship with her daughter. Lexi pursues drawing and music and has recently moved to Los Angeles.
