Charley went on to insist it would be “very worrying” if she changed her son’s appearance for that reason.
She added: “If I was cutting my child’s hair because people were being negative, that would be very worrying.”
Addressing the real reason behind the haircut, Charley explained why Bowie wanted shorter locks.
She continued: “He had it cut because he saw a picture with short hair that was all different colours like red, yellow and blue and he wanted it to look like that.
“He thought it would change colour, obviously it didn’t, but he still loves the hair so it’s fine.”
