The singer’s will, which contents were recently released, left the former supermodel with half of his estate, estimated at between $100 million to $250 million.

The remainder of the funds will be divided between his two children, Duncan Jones, 44, and Alexandria Zahra Jones, 15.

His personal assistant, Corinne “Coco” Schwab, was gifted $2 million and his son’s former nanny, Marion Skene, was left $1 million.

The official paperwork surrounding Bowie’s will, filed under his birth name of David Robert Jones, was originally filed in 2004.

CNN reported that Bowie also left Iman all the properties occupied by the couple, which included a residence in Manhattan.

He set aside property on Little Tonshi Mountain in Ulster County, New York, to daughter Alexandria.

Alexandria is 15-years-old. She received 25% of Bowie’s estate, to be held in trust until she turns 25.

CNN also reported that the will specified that Bowie requested 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.

The singer will be honored in an upcoming episode of the HBO Mick Jagger produced rock drama “Vinyl.”

Bowie was to be featured in an episode which focused specific events in his life in the year 1973.

Since the singer’s death, the episode has since been retitled “Memoriam” and will include a personal tribute from Jagger at the end, according to The Mirror.

In an article published by The Mirror, Jagger remarked, “The series is a way to honor him. His presence in the series will be a way to pay our respects, a positive way to remember and honor his life. David was a very dear friend and his death saddened me very much.”

“Vinyl” airs its premiere episode Feb. 14 on HBO.
