Our thoughts are with Iman.

David Bowie‘s model wife is in mourning of a second major loss as her mother, Marian Abdulmajid, has passed away. Entertainment Tonight confirms the death, which occurred less than three months after Bowie died in January after a long battle with cancer.

Iman shared a photo on Friday morning (Apr. 1) of her wedding day with Bowie, penning a message that asks for compassion during the family’s difficult time.

“Saddened by death of my mom Maryan Baadi,” she wrote in the caption. “May Allah grant her the highest jennah. I beg that you respect my family’s privacy during our time of grief #ripmaryanbaadi.”
