David Bowie requests ashes be scattered in Bali


David Bowie’s will asks that his ashes be scattered in Bali, an island that is part of Indonesia.

The 20-page document, filed Friday in court in New York, leaves the bulk of his estate, valued at about $100 million, to his two children and his wife, supermodel Iman, according to the Associated Press.

Bowie, known for hit songs as Changes, Heroes and Young Americans, died Jan. 10 at the age of 69. He had had cancer for 18 months before his death. Bowie’s latest album, Blackstar, was released to critical acclaim just days before his death.

The will, prepared in 2004 and filed under the singer’s legal name, David Robert Jones, asked that his ashes be scattered “in accordance with the Buddhist rituals,” the AP reported. According to a death certificate filed with the will, Bowie’s body was cremated on Jan. 12 in New Jersey.

In the will, Bowie, who also acted in films such as The Man Who Fell to Earth and The Hunger, leaves the SoHo home he shared with Iman to the supermodel, along with half his worth. He leaves most of the remainder of his fortune to his son, Duncan Jones, and daughter, Alexandria, with additional bequests to personal assistant Corinne Schwab and Marion Skene, Alexandria’s nanny.

David Bowie’s last album has landed in the top spot on the Billboard charts. Wochit
