David Bowie left the bulk of his estate to his wife, Iman, and his two children, Duncan and Alexandria, according to a 20-page will originally filed in 2004.

Bowie – who used his birth name, David Robert Jones, in the will – was worth an estimated $100 million, according to The New York Times.

Iman, the supermodel Bowie married in 1992, received half of Bowie’s estate and all the properties occupied by the couple, which included a residence in Manhattan. But property on Little Tonshi Mountain in Ulster County, New York, was left to his daughter in trust.

Alexandria, referred to as “Lexi” in the will, is 15 years old. She received 25% of Bowie’s estate, to be held in trust until she turns 25.

Bowie’s son, Duncan Jones, a 44-year-old film director, also received 25%.

Bowie was generous with other loved ones. His personal assistant, Corinne “Coco” Schwab, was bequeathed $2 million. Jones’ one-time nanny, Marion Skene, was left $1 million.

In the will, Bowie also requested that his remains be “taken to the country of Bali and to be cremated there in accordance with the Buddhist rituals of Bali.” If that wasn’t practical, he asked that his ashes be scattered over the Indonesian island.

According to The New York Times, Bowie vacationed in Bali in the 1980s. He built a Bali-inspired house in Mustique in the early ’90s.

Bowie, the ever-morphing singer and performer who created such albums as “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars,” “Station to Station” and “Lodger,” died January 10. He was 69.
