David Bowie Battled Liver Cancer Before His Death at 69

Though no official statement has been has been released as to what led to the death of the rock legend, but it has now been disclosed. The legendary English singer, David Bowie, was secretly battling liver cancer prior to his death on Sunday, January 10, 2016.
The songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, arranger, painter and actor was 69 at the time of his unfortunate death, and his demise came as a shock to fans who knew next to nothing about his health issues.
Director Ivo van Hove, a confidant and collaborator of Bowie’s, confirmed that his friend had liver cancer during a recent interview. The 58-year-old Belgian theater director worked with Bowie on Lazarus, the musical written by the late star.
“The production of Lazarus, and also this new album, Blackstar, when you look at them both, you find so many lines and phrases that meant so much more than people knew before today,” van Hove told the New York Times.
Producer Anthony Edward "Tony" Visconti ,71, previously called the album Blackstar “his parting gift.” Bowie’s final music video for the song “Lazarus” alludes to the late rocker’s death as he lies in a hospital bed and sings: “Look up here, I’m in heaven. I’ve got scars that can’t be seen.”
