David Bowie's will was filed in New York City on Friday, and according to Page Six, the British rock star left most of his $100 million fortune to wife Iman.

Bowie, who died at 69 on Jan. 10 after a battle with cancer, directed that his fortune be divided between Iman, his two children, a personal assistant and a former nanny. Iman will reportedly receive roughly half of the fortune -- to be managed by Bowie's lawyers and paid out in quarterly installments -- plus the couple's apartment on Lafayette Street in Manhattan.

Duncan Jones, Bowie's 44-year-old son with actress Angela Barnett, will reportedly receive a quarter of his father's estate -- roughly $25 million -- outright, while Lexi Zahra Jones, Bowie's 15-year-old daughter with Iman, will reportedly receive her inheritance and her father's vacation home in upstate New York when she turns 25.

Bowie also left some money for important members of his staff. He reportedly left $1 million to Marion Skene, who was Duncan's nanny, and $2 million to friend and personal assistant Corinne Schwab, whom he named as as Lexi's guardian in case her mother dies before she turns 18.

The rock legend also reportedly left instructions for his burial in the will, signed Aug. 25, 2004, reportedly requesting that his ashes be scattered on Bali, in accordance with Buddhist customs.
