Explosive Claims That David Bowie Ended His Own Life

Nine months after David Bowie's tragic death, a former Radio One DJ has claimed that the iconic pop star's very last days were 'stage managed' and that his life ended at the hands of assisted suicide.

David Bowie died following a secret 18-month battle with terminal cancer. His diagnosis remained private from all but his closest family and friends.


Bowie's final album, Blackstar, was released just days before his death to coincide with his 69th birthday and has been described as his parting gift. As a result, thousands of fans took to social media to debate whether the lyrics of the song 'Lazarus' revealed that Bowie knew his time was indeed running short or not.

Lesley-Ann Jones has penned her thoughts on Bowie's death, saying “David died in his own bed in New York City, two days after his 69th birthday. We didn’t even know that he was terminally ill. They’re saying it was liver cancer, but isn’t that usually secondary? Wouldn’t his primary have been lung?”

In a piece written for the Mail On Sunday, Lesley-Ann includes quotes friend, former BBC Radio 1 DJ, Andy Peebles.

"It has been suggested to me in quite a number of phone calls that his death was the result of assisted suicide. Who might have assisted him, and exactly how they did so, we will never know. To protect them, I am sure he won’t have involved his family or his close friends. But when you think about it, David stage-managed absolutely everything else, throughout his entire career. Why would his death be any different? If he was able to do it on his own terms, good for him.”

Rock manager and producer Simon Napier-Bell previously claimed that “"he [Bowie] was photographed outside his apartment building in a beautifully cut charcoal suit, tie and a fedora, wearing a big broad smile and looking fabulous” and that was how Bowie wished to be remembered by his fans, he "controlled" his image in the public eye until the end. 

We're not sure what to believe, but one thing remains true, the world isn't the same without David Bowie. 

Gone but not forgotten, Starman.
