Angie Bowie Emotional as She Talks About Late Ex on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’
David Bowie’s ex-wife Angie paid tribute to her late husband on TV Monday night minutes after she was informed off-camera that the rocker had passed away. Bowie lost his battle with cancer on Sunday and producers of Britain’s Celebrity Big Brother had to alert her to the sad news on Monday.
Despite attacking her ex on the reality show last week, Angie Bowie had kind words about her former husband, stating, “I haven’t seen him for so many years” in a the Diary Room segment of the show. “I can’t make a big drama out of it. I just feel like an era has ended with his passing. I’m so very sad.” She then burst into tears and had to be consoled by Big Brother contestant David Gest. Early on Monday, show bosses released a statement, revealing they had informed Angie of the sad news, adding, “She has taken the decision to continue in the program. The decision to remain in the house is entirely her choice, and she has been given the option to leave at any time if she changes her mind. Appropriate support will be available to Angie at any time if needed.”
