David Bowie’s ex-wife Angie has revealed she was drugged and raped in the 1970s – but she never told him.

However Angie never told her husband she was raped by two men while in New York at the height of the Starman’s fame.

Speaking to The Sunday Mirror, Angie revealed she woke up after her drink was spiked to find herself covered in blood on a bed with two men looming over her.

Despite the terrifying situation, Angie lashed out at her attackers, punching them numerous times before leaving the room.

She revealed for the first time: “I never told David. I never gave him bad news. That wasn’t my job.

“He wouldn’t have been able to deal with that kind of thing. I just learned to block it all out. I ignored it.

“I’m not a survivor. I’m a warrior because that’s what you have to be.”

The incident took place in 1974 when she was 24 and while David was in Philadelphia recording.

Angie headed out to 82 Club with some of her husband’s business associates, but revealed to the publication she never drank or did drugs.

She recalled: “I had a Coca-Cola sitting at the bar and I was about to go and sit with them. I didn’t notice two South Americans putting a date rape drug in my drink.”

Angie collapsed and the men took her to the Seville Hotel in New York and raped her.

Of the moment she came round, she said: “My dress, which was see-through silk, organza yellow, was covered in blood.”

Tales of Rock – Bowie and Jagger in Bed

David Bowie is an innovative English musician that has sold over 140 million albums. He is an extremely popular singer and has done a lot of work to help fight important world issues. In 1972, Bowie became one of the first popular singers to reveal to the public that he was bisexual. Bowie gave an interview that was broadcast around the world. Since that time he has bounced back and forth on the issue and remains married to Somali-American model Iman.

In 1970, David Bowie was married to a woman named Angela and the couple divorced in 1980. In 1990, after a ten-year gag order ended, Angela Bowie appeared on The Joan Rivers Show and gave some controversial details about her time with David. She is quoted: “I caught him in bed with men several times. In fact the best time I caught him in bed was with Mick Jagger.” At this point, Howard Stern, who was involved with the interview, asked Angela if Jagger and Bowie had their clothes off. She said: “They certainly did.” The accusation became international news and Jagger released a statement that dismissed the claim.

A week after the interview, Angela Bowie went on television and said that although she had seen Mick Jagger and Bowie naked, it didn’t necessarily mean they weren’t sleeping. She clarified: “I certainly didn’t catch anyone in the act.” Some people have linked the event to the 1973 Rolling Stones hit song Angie. However, David Bowie said it best: “About 15 or 16 years ago, I really got pretty tired of fending off questions about what I used to do with my penis in the early ’70s. My suggestion for people with a prurient interest is to go through the 30 or 40 bios on me and pick out the rumor of their choice.”

This is the gayest thing I’ve ever seen.

Enjoy!
