DAVID Bowie wanted his ashes to be scattered in Bali. The 69-year-old singer died earlier this month after a secret cancer battle and left instructions for his ashes to be scattered on the island, according to his will which was filed in Manhattan on Friday (Jan 29).
The New York Post’s Page Six also reports that David left half his US$100 million (RM414 million) fortune and his Manhattan home to his wife Iman while their daughter Lexi was left his property in upstate New York.
David bequeathed US$2 million (RM8.29 million) to his personal assistant, Corinne Coco Schwab, and US$1 million to his son Duncan’s former nanny, Marion Skene while the remainder of his fortune will be split between his two children.
Meanwhile, 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.” â€“ Bang Media
