Thom Yorke found the death of his former partner Rachel Owen “very hard”.
The Oxford University lecturer passed away from cancer at the age of 48 in 2016, and the Radiohead frontman – who has son Noah, 18, and daughter Agnes, 15, with Rachel – has said he found her death difficult to deal with, especially as it meant raising their two teenage children without their mother.
Thom – who dated Rachel for 23 years before splitting in 2015 – said: “I can’t hope to be their mum but we’re all right. I’m just really proud of them both. It stuns me most days. I can’t believe they’re anything to do with me. They’re just such great people.
