David Bowie’s Final Wishes Found In Will

While his departing gift to his fans is the music he released during and the impact he left on them, David Bowie still had a few things that needed to be sorted out after his passing. His will has detailed where his $100 million estate will go.

The New York Times have provided some details from his will, which was filed in Surrogate’s Court in Manhattan last week. His wife of 23 years, Iman Abdulmajid Jones will receive 50% of Bowie’s estate, while his children will receive 25% each. He also left Iman his SoHo apartment and his daughter Alexandria his mountain home. There are smaller shares for his personal assistant Corinne Schwab and the family nanny Marion Skene, who will receive $2 million and $1 million respectively.

While he has already been cemented in New York City, his will asks for his body to be cemented in Bali “in accordance with the Buddhist rituals”. His ashes have therefore been scattered in Bali, as written in The Guardian.

His family previously released a statement thanking the public for their support and tributes:


The family of David Bowie is currently making arrangements for a private ceremony celebrating the memory of their beloved husband, father and friend.

They ask once again that their privacy be respected at this most sensitive of times.

We are overwhelmed by and grateful for the love and support shown throughout the world.

However, it is important to note that while the concerts and tributes planned for the coming weeks are all welcome, none are official memorials organized or endorsed by the family.

Just as each and every one of us found something unique in David’s music, we welcome everyone’s celebration of his life as they see fit.”
