The details of David Bowie's will were released yesterday, with plans for his remains and $100 million worth of assets. Bowie passed away from cancer at the age of 69 earlier this month. He left much of his fortune to his wife and children, but he also left money to a personal assistant and former nanny.

The musical legend left much more than a new album behind to cement his legacy. His wife Iman will receive approximately half his fortune, while his son, Duncan Jones, and daughter, Alexandria Zahra Jones, both received about 25% of the estate. 

He continues to defy expectations.

Marion Skene, of Switzerland, who was Duncan’s nanny, was left $1 million. Friend and personal assistant Corinne Coco Schwab of Manhattan, will receive $2 million.

Bowie also specified instructions for his remains:

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. 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.


There will not be a formal funeral for Bowie. But hilarious stories about him mocking Ricky Gervais or turning down a collaboration with Coldplay because their song sucked will live forever.
