Iman Net Worth
Iman net worth: Iman is a Somalian-American retired fashion model, actress and entrepreneur who has a net worth of $100 million dollars. She is professionally known as Iman (meaning 'faith' in Arabic). She is also credited with being a pioneer in the field of ethnic cosmetics.
She was born Iman Mohamed Abdulmajid on July 25, 1955 in Mogadishu, Somalia. Iman was discovered in her native environment in Nairobi by photographer Peter Beard, a well-known fashion photographer. Beard followed Iman on the street then approached her about having her picture taken. Though she had never even seen a Vogue magazine, she decided to tell Beard she would do it for $8,000 (the cost of her college tuition). Beard agreed and took the photos back to New York, where he proceeded to 'leak' information about his 'African beauty' discovery, all the while trying to persuade Iman to move to New York. When she finally took the bait, she was met at the airport in New York by dozens of photographers. Throughout the '70s and '80s, she was a favored model in Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. Fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent even devoted the "African Queen" collection to her.
Iman met British rock musician a David Bowie in Los Angeles in 1990 and they married two years later. They had one daughter together, Alexandria Zahra Jones, born August 15, 2000. Iman is also stepmother to Bowie's son, Duncan, from a previous marriage. Both children bear Bowie's legal surname, Jones. Iman also has a daughter, Zulekha, born 1978, from her marriage to American basketball player Spencer Haywood.
David Bowie Estate: At the time of his death, David Bowie's net worth was $230 million. Bowie's widow, Iman Abdulmajid Jones, came out best by the will, receiving their big dual-penthouse "apartment" in SoHo, as well as half of the rest of his estate. Duncan received 25% of his father's estate. The other 25% (plus a mountain retreat in New York State) went to a trust for David's underage daughter Alexandria Zahra Jones. Corinne Schwab, Bowie's beloved longtime personal assistant, also known as Coco, got $2 million plus Bowie's former holdings in Opossum Inc. Even Bowie's childhood nanny Marion Skene got a piece of the action, worth a cool million dollars.
