British pop legend Lulu has lifted the lid on her relationship with David Bowie.
Lulu found huge success in the 1960s and 1970s recording a James Bond theme ad winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1969 wit the sing Boom Bang-a-Bang.
She found a legion of new fans in the 1990s when she collaborated with UK boy ban Take That releasing hit single Relight My Fire.
The Glasgow singer had just divorced her first spouse, former Bee Gees star Maurice Gibb in 1973, when she met the Ziggy Stardust legend, who died aged 69 in 2016, reported The Sun.
Speaking on the Rosebud podcast, she said: “I had a relationship with David Bowie that was kind of amazing really”.
“We recognised something in each other.
“And then when I went to New York after the first hit – quite a few months after the first hit he was involved in a lifestyle that was a little frightening to me. And I ran,” she said.
“At that point for sure I sensed danger.
“And I would say, and I’ve never said this before I don’t think, that I almost threw myself into John Frieda’s arms and I married John.
“It was like ‘that was danger and this was not danger’.”
Lulu is about to embark on her final tour after 60 years on the road called Champagne for Lulu.
But she still plans on making new music and recording another album with some interesting collaborations.
