Bowie left half of his fortune to his wife Iman

Rock and roll icon David Bowie‘s dying wish was for his ashes to be scattered on the island of Bali, according to his newly revealed estate.

Bowie’s will was filed Friday in a Manhattan courtroom, leaving the bulk of his fortune to his wife, model Iman, and two children, according to the New York Post.

Iman will get half of the legend’s riches, reportedly worth some $100 million. The rest will be split between children Duncan Jones, 44, and Lexi Zahra Jones, 15, and two others who played roles in Bowie’s life.

Bowie passed away from cancer earlier this month. His wife will get the couple’s Manhattan home and his daughter Lexi will receive a property in upstate New York.

Bowie also left $2 million to friend and personal assistant Corinne Coco Schwab and $1 million to the children’s childhood nanny Marion Skene.
