A recent report in the New York Post, reported that the ashes of the David Bowie could be spread in Bali, as the late rock legend had requested in a will submitted following his death.
The will filed in a Manhattan court, stated that Bowie selected Bali to be the place to have his ashes scattered, as it would be in line with his Buddhist rituals, and the Indonesian island is predominantly Hindu, as well as being renowned for its unique musical and artistic culture, and retreat for spirituality seekers. Bowie was believed to have spent time in Bali, and even wrote a song about it titled, “Tumble and Twirl.”
The will also state that Bowie left half of his $100 million fortune to his widow, supermodel Iman, along with their home in New York’s Soho district. The other half would go to his children, filmmaker son Duncan Jones, and teenage daughter Lexi.
Bowie died on January 10th, just two days after his 69th birthday, following a near two-year battle with cancer, which he chose not to make public. His death also came two days after the release of his final album, Blackstar, which had earned critical acclaim, and posthumously became the rocker’s very first number one album.
