Supermodel girlfriends

David Bowie and Iman
Bowie reportedly fell head over heels in love with Somali-born model Iman. She admitted in an online chat, "It was nerve wracking at the beginning, the first five minutes, but we got along very famously and we have been together since then."

David Bowie and Iman

(1990 — present)

Their first encounter was a 1990 blind date set up by their hairdresser. Bowie is one of the most influential, and innovative, musicians of our time who had a string of top 10 hits and a serious acting career. Iman is a strikingly attractive supermodel who had transitioned from the magazine to the silver screen — the idea they were finding it difficult to meet people is just plain depressing for the rest of us mere mortals.

Luckily for them their meeting was love at first sight, and Bowie reportedly fell head over heels in love with Somali-born model Iman. She admitted in an online chat, "It was nerve wracking at the beginning, the first five minutes, but we got along very famously and we have been together since then."

What did they see in each other?
The pair seem to share a wacky off-the-wall sense of humour. Iman even said she married Bowie because "he's just plain silly". In a 2003 interview Bowie said about the relationship, "I don't have that sense of loneliness that I had before, which was very, very strong. It became a subtext for a lot of things I wrote."

So if you haven't been too keen on what Bowie's been writing for the last 17 years, then you know who to blame.

Was it true love?
It seems to be the case. Iman's most recent show of love was forcing David onto a strict diet after he suffered a heart attack in 2004. For David marriage the second time around has changed him for the better, as he explained: "I like where I'm at and I'm very comfortable. I like being who I am, who I'm with and what I'm doing. I seem to have found an equilibrium in my life."

Bad romance! Lady Gaga's ex-assistant lands $1 million for tell-all book MusicFIX Blog by Josie Rozenberg-Clarke Jul 17 2014 7:43PM

Lady Gaga's split with former assistant Jennifer O'Neill was anything but friendly…and now the ex-PA has scored a reported $1 million book deal to tell us everything about working for the superstar. Look out, Gaga!

Page Six reports that Simon & Schuster bought the rights to Jennifer's upcoming tell-all, which will explore the two years she worked for the singer.

The best part? It's going to be called Fame Monster. Nice one Jennifer!

The former PA sued Gaga back in 2011, claiming she worked a whopping 7,168 hours of overtime and wanted the USD$393,000 owed to her…plus damages.

In the messy court battle, Jennifer testified that she was "required" to sleep in bed with the singer "because she didn't sleep alone."

She added: "I had no privacy, no chance to talk to any family, no chance to talk to any friends, no chance to have sex if I wanted to have sex."

Gaga, 28, branded Jennifer a "f---ing hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn't earn."

She also declared in official court documents: "I am the queen of the universe, every day...I'm quite wonderful to everybody that works for me."

Everybody except for Jennifer, apparently!

And she's not the only one who's angry at Gaga...

READ COMMENTS 0 COMMENTS David Guetta taken to the cleaners by ex-wife in $32 million divorce settlement MusicFIX Blog by Yasmin Vought Jul 16 2014 10:15AM

Things are not looking good for DJ David Guetta in his shock divorce with ex-wife Cathy Guetta (née Lobé).

Although their marriage of 22 years was officially declared as over in court this March, new sources reveal that 47-year-old Cathy ended up with the biggest slice of the pie.

"Things are not good," a source told Page Six. "Cathy owns all of the business names and the music [rights], [including] their 'F--- Me I'm Famous' brand of dance parties and popular compilation albums."

But that's not all. The business woman responsible for building the Guetta empire with the DJ, is also taking home a big chunk of the cash too.

"She's taking a lot of his money," another source told Page Six of the March settlement. "He's worth [AUD$32 million], she'll probably take [AUD$16 million] of that."

This comes as no surprise to another music industry source who revealed Cathy is the "business mogul", while David, 47, is "the rock star."

David and Cathy have two children together, 10-year-old Tim Elvis Eric and Angie, 6.
