David Bowie Leaves Millions To wife Iman, Children, Personal Assistant And Former Nanny

The 69-year-old singer died earlier this month after a secret cancer battle and also left instructions for his ashes to be scattered in Bali, according to his will which was filed in Manhattan on Friday. 

The New York Post's Page Six reports that David left an estate of around $100 million to Iman and his two children, with his Manhattan home going to his wife while their daughter Lexi was left his property in upstate New York. 

He also bequeathed $2 million to his personal assistant, Corinne Coco Schwab, and $1 million to his son Duncan’s former nanny, Marion Skene. It comes as Ivo Van Hove, who worked with David on stage show Lazarus, recently said the star fought to live because he wanted more time with his wife Iman, their daughter Lexi, 15, and his son Duncan. Director Ivo said:

"I deeply felt that he really didn't want to die.It was a fight not against death but a fight to live.And living, for him, was being a real family man. He loved to go home, to be at home with his daughter, with his wife, his family." 

The future releases are set to include never-before-heard music that could date back to his most creative period in the 1970s. The prospect of more albums from Bowie gives a new insight into the level of planning that went into what would happen after his death.
