David Bowie’s will was filed in Manhattan on Friday and it’s been revealed he left an estate worth as much as $100 million to his supermodel wife Iman and his two children.
Bowie who died of cancer at age 69 in January asked that he be cremated and his ashes spread in a Buddhist ritual in Bali.
In his will, he also requested that $2 million be left to his long time personal assistant, Corinne Coco Schwab and $1 million to Marion Skene who was his older child’s nanny.
Bowie’s estate on Little Tonshi Mountain near Woodstock in the Catskills was left to Alexandria, the 15 year old daughter he had with Iman whom he married in 1992.
Bowie’s son, Duncan Jones, from his first marriage, gets the same 25% share as his half sister in the rest of the musician’s estate.
Iman gets the other 50% of his estate plus all of his other real estate, including their apartment in SoHo on Lafayette Street.
Bowie, whose real name was David Robert Jones, was reported to be one of the richest rock stars in the world.
Although he sold 140 million records in his lifetime, Bowie made more money from his concerts later in his career and from a novel financial gimmick where he sold Bowie Bonds.
