David Bowie‘s widow, Iman, has announced that her mother has passed away.

Iman, a Somali supermodel, broke the news in an Instagram post on Friday, uploading a group photo of herself; her mother, Marian Abdulmajid; her father and Bowie.

“Saddened by death of my mom Maryan Baadi,” the 60-year-old wrote alongside the photo. “May Allah grant her the highest jennah. I beg that you respect my family’s privacy during our time of grief #ripmaryanbaadi.”

The death comes just months after Bowie’s death. The music legend died in January after an 18-month battle with cancer, officials said in a statement.

Nearly a month after Bowie’s death, Iman broke her silence in a simple Instagram message.

“Love & Gratitude Iman,” the message read.

In the months since her husband’s death, Iman has kept a low profile, only posting a series of inspirational messages on her Instagram account.
