One of David Bowie’s biographers has claimed that the rock legend suffered as many as six heart attacks before his death. Bowie, who underwent heart surgery in 2004, died of cancer on Sunday but it has now been claimed he was also battling other health problems, reports

Wendy Leigh, who published a biography of the singer last year, told BBC News: “He didn’t just battle cancer... he had six heart attacks in recent years. I got this from somebody very close to him.”
