DAVID Bowie's teenage daughter has revealed she hasn't seen her mom in six months after getting stuck in Los Angeles amid the pandemic.
The late star's youngest child, Alexandria 'Lexi' Jones, 19, shared rare photographs of her as a child with Iman in celebration of Mother's Day on Sunday, admitting she's missing the former supermodel, who is more than 2,000 miles away in New York.
The Sun revealed last week Lexi is a budding artist who has moved to California, and is selling her creations on her Depop account for up to $250.
Lexi, who lost her father in 2016 after a long battle with liver cancer, shared two touching posts on Instagram with her mom, one showing her as a child kissing Iman, and another sat on her lap.
Lexi wrote alongside the second post: "Happy mothers day again here’s another w me holding a chikkken nugget.
"Everyone pls 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!"
Fans were quick to comment, with one writing back: "Love to you Lexi. So many people are missing their families. My heart goes out to you."
Another added: "Hope you will be reunited soon!! This will pass! Don’t know how soon but it will! X."
Lexi moved to Los Angeles last year, with a close source saying she is "doing her own thing" after her mom banned her from modeling after being inundated with requests from agencies.
The insider said: "Lexi has been here for a while now, but she isn't interested in the Hollywood scene and going to red carpet events.
"She's a great kid and very down-to-earth, most of her friends are also studying art and they spend their time vintage shopping, going to exhibitions and hanging out by the beach.
"The world is Lexi's oyster, there are a lot of opportunities for her being Bowie's daughter, but she's enjoying being a regular teenager for now and making it on her own."
Philanthropist Iman, 64, previously reflected on her relationship with the teen in a previous interview with W Magazine, admitting she doesn't want Lexi following in her footsteps — at least while she's still young.
"She says I am overprotective," she revealed. "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."
Bowie's widow explained to the publication: "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 her to model. It's because she is David Bowie's daughter."
