He and Iman are an inspiration to us all.

ElfieJul 7, 2014

He actually had a relationship with Ola Hudson, Slash's mom. He said he saw them naked when he was 8...that's a bit too much...isn't it? Poor kid :))))

I had such a crush on this man! *sigh*

H2OJul 19, 2011

I can't believe people put men up there that he dated. He like women only. Anyway, I think he and Iman are a lovely couple and are both lucky to have each other's backs. Their daughter is beautiful too.
