NEW YORK, Jan. 30 (UPI) -- David Bowie's will, which was filed Friday in a Manhattan court, stipulates his wife Iman should get about half of his $100 million fortune, plus their Lafayette Street apartment.

The rock icon, who died of cancer this month at the age of 69, also left instructions regarding how he wanted his remains handled.

"I direct that my executors shall arrange for my remains to be taken to the country of Bali and to be cremated there in accordance with the Buddhist rituals of Bali," the New York Post quoted Bowie as writing in the will, which was dated Aug. 25, 2004.

"If that is not practical, then I direct that my executors shall arrange for my remains to be cremated and my ashes scattered in Bali."

Bowie's children -- Duncan Jones, 44, and Lexi Zahra Jones, 15, will inherit the bulk of the remainder of his estate, but the famous musician also left $2 million to his personal assistant and $1 million to Duncan's former nanny.
