A Texas judge on Friday ordered a second AIDS test for David Bowie, who is being sued by a Dallas woman who spent the night with the singer after an October concert. The criminal case against Bowie was dropped, but Wanda Nichols is pursuing a civil suit after claiming Bowie sexually assaulted her. Bowie fulfilled an earlier request for an AIDS test at a facility in Switzerland and the results showed no signs of AIDS. “We will probably send a representative to Switzerland, which is where he (Bowie) is at, to physically observe it is his blood,” said Nichols’ lawyer, Robert M. Rose. “From there, we will have it tested at a place we think is reputable. The main thing we will know is that it is his blood being tested. I’m not saying I believe or disbelieve him (about the earlier test), but I want proof. I want to be sure it’s his blood being tested.”
