David Bowie Will: Iman and Kids Share $100 Million Estate
David Bowie’s $100 million estate will go to his widow, Iman, and his kids, according to the singer’s will which has been filed in New York.
Iman was left $50 million along with the home they shared in New York. The rest is shared between David Bowie’s son and daughter.
It was also revealed that David Bowie had requested that his ashes be scattered in Bali in a Buddhist ritual.
David Bowie died of cancer on January 10 at the age of 69.
The singer’s will was filed in a Manhattan court on January 29 under David Bowie’s legal name, David Robert Jones.
The star’s personal assistant, Corinne Schwab, was left $2 million and another $1 million went to a former nanny, Marion Skene.
David Bowie’s son, Duncan Jones, and daughter, Alexandria Zahra Jones, both received 25% of the estate. Alexandria was also left a home in upstate New York.
In the will, written in 2004, David Bowie asked that he be cremated in Bali but if that was “not practical”, then his ashes be scattered there anyway “in accordance with the Buddhist rituals”. It is not clear if the scattering has already taken place.
David Bowie’s body was cremated on January 12 in New Jersey, according to a death certificate filed with the will.
At the time it was reported that no family or friends were present at the ceremony, in accordance with the singer’s wishes.
