According to David Bowie’s will, which was filed in a New York court on Friday, his estate will be divided between his wife Iman, his two children, one of his children’s nanny, and his longtime personal assistant.


Bowie, who died at the age of 69 earlier this month, was worth roughly $100 million. According to the 20-page will that was signed in 2004 (under his birth name, David Robert Jones), half of his estate will go to his widow Iman. She was also left the couple’s apartment in Manhattan.

His children, son Duncan and teenage daughter Alexandria, will get 25% of the estate. Bowie’s will also leaves Alexandria the family’s mountain home in Ulster County, New York. Alexandria, 15, will receive her portion on her 25th birthday. In addition to his family, Bowie also left $1 million to Marion Skene, son Duncan’s childhood nanny. Corinne “Coco” Schwab, Bowie’s personal assistant and confidante, will receive $2 million.


The will also expressed Bowie’s wish to have his ashes spread across Bali. “I direct that my executors shall arrange for my remains to be taken to the country of Bali and to be cremated there in accordance with the Buddhist rituals of Bali,” Bowie wrote. “If that is not practical, then I direct that my executors shall arrange for my remains to be cremated and my ashes scattered in Bali,” the will continued.

Bowie was cremated in New Jersey earlier this month.
