David Bowie's widow Iman Abdulmajid has broken her silence on social media for the first time since the late superstar's death.

The 60-year-old former supermodel posted a simple message on her official Twitter page that read: "Love & gratitude" to her followers.

The couple were married in 1992, two years after they met and have a daughter, Alexandria Zahra Jones, together.

In the singer last days, Iman posted a series of emotional updates on social media.

"The struggle is real, but so is God," read one unattributed quote posted to her Instagram account on the day Bowie died after an 18-month battle with cancer.

The late rock star's estate, said to be worth around 100m dollars (£70m), will be divided mainly between Iman, son Duncan and daughter Alexandria Zahra Jones.

He left Iman 50% of his estate, including the home they shared in New York's SoHo district, while both children received 25% each.

I fell in love with David Jones," she told The Independent in 2014.

"I did not fall in love with David Bowie. Bowie is just a persona. He's a singer, an entertainer. David Jones is a man I met."

It was recently claimed the 69-year-old singer left $2 million to his personal assistant and close friend Corinne "Coco" Schwab.

A further $1 million went to his son Duncan’s former nanny Marion Skene.

The rest of his money was divided, as expected between his family members.

The New York Post's Page Six reports that David left an estate of around $100 million to Iman and his two children, with his Manhattan home going to his wife while their daughter Lexi was left his property in upstate New York.
