David Bowie wanted ashes to be scattered in Bali


The late rock icon’s will, which was filed in court on Friday in Manhattan, allegedly revealed that Bowie has left almost half of his $100 million estate to his wife Iman, along with the couple’s home on Lafayette Street in Manhattan, according to the New York Post’s Page Six, who obtained the documents.

Bowie also gave $2 million to his friend and personal assistant, Corinne Coco Schwab, and $1 million to his son Duncan’s former nanny, Marion Skene.

In addition, Alexandria will receive her late father’s much loved property on Little Tonshi Mountain, near Woodstock in the United States. His hits included “Space Oddity”, “Golden Years”, “Heroes” and “Let’s Dance”. He said if cremation in the Indonesian island was “not practical” then he wanted his remains cremated and his ashes scattered there still.

He died of liver cancer on January 10, two days after his 69 birthday, prompting an outpouring of grief across the world. The will names two executors and was prepared in 2004 under the star’s legal name, David Robert Jones.

Bowie re-imagined himself over and over again with personas like the “Thin White Duke” and “Aladdin Sane”.

The Obama administration confirmed for the first time Friday that Hillary Clinton’s unsecured home server contained some of the US government’s most closely guarded secrets, censoring 22 emails.

In addition to Bowie’s own music, an original cast album for his off-Broadway play Lazarus is also in the works.
