David Bowie’s daughter Lexi Jones, 20, slams ‘perverted and vulgar’ troll who criticised her for posing in a swimsuit as she admits it took years for her to ‘love her body’
David Bowie’s daughter Alexandria Zahra Jones, known as Lexi, has slammed a troll for their ‘perverted and vulgar’ response to her posing a snap in a swimsuit.
Lexi, 20, took to Instagram on Thursday to share a picture of herself modelling a chic brown swimsuit in her home, and one person criticised her body confidence post by saying she was ‘horny today.’
Not mincing her words in response, Lexi told the troll to go ‘f**k yourself’ as she claimed it took her years to learn to ‘love her body’.

Sharing a screengrab of the troll’s comment, Lexi hit out: ‘Feels good to love my body after years of hating and disrespecting it.
‘No shame in liking how I look in my cowboy swimsuit, but a shame that you’re able to twist it into something so perverted and vulgar.
‘What a dim witted piece of trash and sad that there are more people like you. Go f**k yourself.’

Lexi is a budding artist based in California and is selling her artworks on Depop for up to $300.
She is the child of the Space Oddity hitmaker and Somali fashion model Iman, who first met in 1990 at a dinner party.
After her birth, it was said that she helped her father put his workaholic attitude ‘into perspective’ and give him the will to stay healthy after his first heart attack.

David also had a son, Duncan Jones, from a previous marriage while Iman shares her daughter Zulekha Haywood with a former love.
It has been five years since David shockingly passed away at the age of 69, on January 10, 2016, after an 18-month battle with cancer.
Iman married the English rocker in a romantic ceremony in Lausanne, Switzerland in April 1992 which was later formalised in a wedding hosted in Florence in June.
She previously revealed how she did not want Lexi to follow her into modelling or becoming a superstar child of a famous couple, like many of her peers.

In a 2018 interview with Net A Porter, Iman, 64, said: ‘Every agency, every designer, called me to say: “If she wants to, we’d love for her to model for us.”
‘I said: “No, she doesn’t.” I know why they wanted to her to model – it’s because she is David Bowie’s daughter.
‘She says I am overprotective. But I told her, this can all wait, it isn’t going anywhere.
‘Have a life that is private while you can, because one day soon it is going to be public, so enjoy this.’
Iman and Lexi remain very close and back in May last year, Lexi shared an emotional post after revealing she hadn’t seen her mum for six months.
Lexi was stuck in Los Angeles during the coronavirus pandemic while her supermodel mother was at her home in New York.
In a Mother’s Day post, Bowie’s youngest child appealed to others to follow the lockdown guidelines so she could see her family again soon.
‘Everyone please stay inside I haven’t seen my mom for 6 months because we live on opposite coasts and it is very difficult to leave ny right now but I’m a child and I miss her dearly so pls be party poopers this one time so it doesn’t take 2 f***ing years to see her again thank you!’ she wrote. The two were later reunited in New York.
