David Bowie’s former wife has alleged that the music legend once tried to kill her by strangling her with his bare hands.
The ‘Starman’ hit-maker, who was addicted to cocaine in the late 70s, attacked his then-wife Angie after snorting powder, said News.com.au.
The assault came after Angie snapped at Bowie’s assistant and lover Corinne Schwab.
During an interview, Angie revealed that he squeezed the life out of her when she questioned Corinne “rather sharply” about the amount of baggage she had assembled for a trip to Jamaica, where the music maestro 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,” said Bowie’s ex-wife.
