His spokesperson revealed the 69-year-old has been battling cancer (the type not specified) for 18-months.

More below…

A statement issued on his social media page, read:

“David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.”

Though his sound was sonically rooted in Rock, his impact on visuals for all was profound.

A host of celebrities agree, issuing tributes which continue to pour in as we type…

Bowie is survived by his two children and wife, supermodel Iman, to whom he has been married to since 1992.

Our sincerest thoughts and prayers go out to the Bowie family.

      Again another ICON they never gave enought credit to. If there was no David Bowie — where would Madonna and Prince get most of there swag from??

      An incredible loss, but TRUST AND BELIEVE the grammys are gonna TURN this tribute up.

      • Tina01 January 11, 2016

        Madonna has soooooo ripped off his style and Lenny also.

        David bowie was the coolest dude even when he dressed in DRAG he just made it look cool.

    • FC/JC January 11, 2016

      Girl u finally come out of hiding….. Hmm, atleast its to pay homage to a legend, and not to carry on with these trolls.

    • Queen Barb January 11, 2016

      She can go back into hiding who uses her?

      • Tina01 January 11, 2016

        Barb? girl go get a personality and a life. Nikki is not worrying about no Barbs she too busy trying to save her R_apist brother and probably at Rite Aid looking for bleach for her skin SO SHE CAN LOOK LIKE A WHITE WOMAN.

        #SELF HATE RUNS IN HER FAMILY

      • Rosie January 11, 2016

        And who the f*** are you? Go worry about Onika her twitter feuds with E-list reality TV celebs and inflating her sales by 3x on Instagram instead.

    • HailBeysus January 11, 2016

      • Rosie January 11, 2016

        The fact that I just came in here to say RIP to this actual legend and they’re still bothered. Their lives must be so sad and lonely.
        Do they at least do something with it? At least I’m in university, which is the reason I don’t comment as much, not because “Lana is flopping!!1” or w/e (I could care less).

  11. Royalkev January 11, 2016

    Wow. This is so tragic! I knew after losing a legendary artist like Natalie Cole, unfortunately another great will pass on. Bowie was a huge talent that served the world with his brilliant artistry for many decades! My thoughts are with Iman and the rest of his family.

  12. .:: Centurion ::. January 11, 2016

  21. Suicide Blonde January 11, 2016

    This breaks my heart, i wasn’t expecting this, i wasn’t ready for this, i loved this man more than anyone else, he was my favorite solo artist, i’m so sad.

    • Stephon Maurice Jackson January 11, 2016

      You’re so fake. Just fake as hell.

      • Suicide Blonde January 11, 2016

        No man, i’m devastated, it’s like a personal loss to me, as if it was Kurt or Madonna, these 3 are true favorites, i never being more honest, that man means the world to me, thought you knew that, please, be kind, i’m not attcking you, i don’t feel like it, not today, just be kind.

    • Royalkev January 11, 2016

      I believe you! … and I’m sorry that today’s a day you won’t forget because of this tragedy. Losing Whitney allowed me to feel so much compassion for people that’s going through the same thing. I’m not big on celebs, but I held Whitney dear to my heart. Her absence leaves an enormous void. I hope you can at least feel good about all David’s accomplished and everything he’s meant to those he inspired. Bowie’s an artist’s artist and he’s left an undeniable mark in the world. Hope you find peace with this today! 🙂

  22. Barb-wire January 11, 2016

    ^^^ We don’t care….
    Anyways, RIP legend, you will be missed by those who knew and appreciated your music.

    • girl bye January 11, 2016

  23. LB January 11, 2016

  26. Shady81 January 11, 2016

    First Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister passes away on December 26, 2015, then Natalie Cole on January 1, 2016, & now David Bowie today my heart is way to heavy to handle. Especially with three great legendary pioneers so close together pass on.
    R.I.P David Bowie you have inspired so many.

  27. IG: @mixedboy January 11, 2016

    ????????

  28. Grande the Way January 11, 2016

    RIP to him. He influencd many of today’s artist and even legends. He was ahead of his time.

  29. RIP January 11, 2016

    From bright and colorful to dark and twisted, David Bowie’s music covered all the spectrums of human emotion.Innovative and most definitely trendsetting.
    RIP Ziggy Stardust!!!

    Does it surprise me young people are asking who? Nope! If they knew who David was they would demand more from their current garbage generation artist.I find it absolutely sad that the regulars can’t put aside their petty E-beefs to show respect to an artist who actually deserves it.

  30. MUSICHEAD January 11, 2016

    Wow this is a shocker! He was truly a trendsetter and legendary talent! RIP.

  31. What now January 11, 2016

    RIP

  32. January 11, 2016

    sad to hear, R.I.P musical Legend.

  33. Dirty-Muff January 11, 2016

    You people downvoting ‘RIP’ messages should be completely and utterly ashamed of yourselves.

    The vermin who find it impossible to be respectful should do everyone a favour and leave this thread alone.

    RIP Starman, you will be missed dearly.

    • DTG January 11, 2016

      I down voted LB’s RIP post because I hate her/it and down vote everything that stale vaginal belch posts here. Has nothing to do with how I feel about Bowie’s passing.

  34. Meteorite January 11, 2016

    So far 2016 isn’t off to great start in the music world. First Natalie Cole now David Bowie…my heart goes out to both their families.

  35. Sandra January 11, 2016

    Rest in Peace ! My favourite Bowie songs are Let’s Dance and Life on Mars.
    How strange that he just released a new album and then died so soon after. His music will live on. Thoughts go out to his family.

  36. bibi93 January 11, 2016

    RIP

  37. BeyBarbFenty January 11, 2016

    r.i.p

    the disrespect in these comments…
    what type of brain infection must one have to still be salty that they disrespect the death of a legend??

  38. Keitt January 12, 2016

    Made appearances on America’s Soul Train , used a young Luther Vandross as a backing singer once quizzed an MTV boss why there was hardly any Black artists on the station at that time and also had his music sampled by some well known rappers.He was innovative and an insperation to many .UK’s greatest ever pop/rock star and ,I doubt , will ever be eclipsed by anybody on the scene at this time

    LEGEND
