But now it has been claimed that his passing away may have been "stage-managed", and it has led to questions surrounding the cause of death, reports mirror.co.uk.

The star's battle with liver cancer was kept a secret, and now writer Lesley-Ann Jones has questioned the time surrounding his tragic death.

From shock claims that Bowie feared his mother was a "hooker" to claims that he may have considered "assisted suicide", Jones lists rumours and queries from fans and friends.

BBC Radio 1 DJ Andy Peebles claimed Bowie may have had a hand in how he ended his life.

"Seemingly, David Bowie stage-managed his own demise," Peebles reportedly said.

"Two singles released so closely together, the biggest album of his career launched on his 69th birthday, and then, two days later, he dies. I don't know about you, but I can't see that as coincidental."

He added: "It has been suggested to me in quite a number of phone calls that his death was the result of assisted suicide. Who might have assisted him, and exactly how they did so, we will never know. To protect them, I am sure he won't have involved his family or his close friends."
