The details of David Bowie’s will have been revealed, and the late singer ordered that his body be cremated and his ashes be scattered in Bali in lieu of a funeral.

The New York Times reports Bowie’s will was prepared in 2004 and filed on Friday (Jan. 29) in New York. The iconic English artist was cremated in New Jersey on Jan. 12. Bowie asked that his ashes be scattered in Bali “in accordance with the Buddhist rituals.”

Bowie’s will designates half of his $100 million estate and his SoHo apartment to his widow Iman. His two children, Duncan and Alexandria Jones, will each receive 25 percent. Alexandria Jones was additionally granted Bowie’s upstate New York property.

Bowie also left $2 million and shares in Opossum Inc. to his longtime assistant Corinne Schwab. He gave his daughter’s childhood nanny $1 million.

Bowie died on Jan. 10 at the age of 69 following an 18-month battle with liver cancer.
