Angie Bowie: David Bowie strangled me with his bare hands

2016-01-25 12:36

Los Angeles - David Bowie's ex-wife Angie has claimed the legendary singer once tried to kill her with his bare hands.

The 66-year-old model - who was married to Bowie from 1970 until 1980 - has recalled how he tried to strangle her in a drug-fuelled rage after Angie snapped at the musician's assistant and lover Corinne Schwab.

She shared: "It was awful. We were in a house that Corinne had found for us, in a dark hollow in Los Angeles.

"David was high. I questioned Corinne rather sharply about the amount of baggage she had assembled for a trip to Jamaica, where David was going to record.

"She snapped at me, so I snapped back at her: 'Don't you dare talk to me like that.' Suddenly David hurtled across the room.

"He grabbed my throat with both hands and started squeezing. He was blindly angry, yelling at me as he tightened his grip, and I started panicking."

Angie admitted she was left fearing for her life and claimed the frightful incident only ended when Corinne dragged him away.

She told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: ''It didn't feel as if he was going to stop. Corinne pulled him off and saved me. So it's possible that I owe her my life. The fact that she did save me must have pissed her off afterwards.

"I'm sure she would have rather let him go on and do it but she must have known she would have to deal with the consequences.

"It was an awful thing to happen. I hate the thought of it."
