Playing David Bowie Left Wife Iman Half His Fortune, Rest Will Go to Children and Staff

David Bowie's will was filed in New York City on Friday, and the British rock star left much of his roughly $100 million fortune to wife Iman, according to the documents obtained by ET.

Bowie, who died at 69 on Jan. 10 after a battle with cancer, directed that his fortune be divided between Iman, his two children, a personal assistant and a former nanny. Iman will receive roughly half of the fortune -- to be managed by Bowie's lawyers and paid out in quarterly installments -- as well as the couple's apartment on Lafayette Street in Manhattan.

Duncan Jones, Bowie's 44-year-old son with his ex-wife, actress Angela Barnett, will receive a quarter of his father's estate -- about $25 million -- outright, while Alexandria Zahra Jones, Bowie's 15-year-old daughter with Iman, will receive her inheritance and her father's vacation home in upstate New York when she turns 25.

Bowie also left some money to important members of his staff. He left $1 million to Duncan's former nanny, Marion Skene, and $2 million to friend and personal assistant Corinne Schwab, whom he named as as Lexi's guardian in case her mother dies before she turns 18.

The rock legend also left instructions for his burial in the will, signed Aug. 25, 2004, requesting that his ashes be scattered on Bali in accordance with Buddhist customs.
