Angie Bowie: David Bowie had to present as 'heterosexual with bisexual tendencies' in America

Angie Bowie has claimed the late David Bowie had to "present as heterosexual with bisexual tendencies" to make it in America. The 'Starman' hitmaker's ex-wife - with whom she had 50-year-old son Duncan Jones - assisted in the creation of Ziggy Stardust, Bowie's androgynous alien stage persona, and she has recalled how in the 70s in the US, they had to carefully consider how Bowie's sexuality came across.

" And she ultimately got "fed up" with being his "trouble-shooter". The pair divorced in 1980, after a decade of marriage, and David went on to tie the knot with widow Iman in 1992. David died in
