David Bowie sang “Ashes to Ashes” in 1980, and his last wish was for his own ashes to be scattered in the island paradise Bali in accordance with Buddhist ritual, according to the late rocker’s will, which was filed in Manhattan today.
The music, art, fashion and pop-culture icon was worth around $100 million when succumbed to cancer earlier this month at age 69, and he spread the wealth among his supermodel wife, Iman, 60, film director son Duncan Jones, 44, and daughter Lexi Zahra Jones, 15.
Readers of The National ENQUIRER learned the stunning news that quirky David contracted AIDS before he was stricken with liver cancer; that he had beaten cancer once before; and got the scoop on the shocking secrets he took to his grave.

Iman will receive roughly half the fortune, and his kids will split the remainder. Iman also gets their home in on Lafayette Street in Manhattan, while his daughter gets his home in upstate New York’s Ulster County.
David also gifted $2 million to his personal assistant, Corinne Coco Schwab, and $1 million to Marion Skene, Duncan’s former nanny.
“Ashes to Ashes” was the lead single off David’s 1980 album “Scary Monsters,” and the accompanying video became — like so much of the legend’s work — iconic of the decade.
