David Bowie has left $100 million ($70m) to his family, say reports.
According to New York Daily News, the late rock star left much of his fortune to Iman - his wife of 24 years - and two his children Duncan (44) and Alexandria Jones (15).
The website reports that Iman will receive 50% of the Heroes singer's estate, including their Soho apartment, while his children will each receive 25%.
It is thought that the singer - who died of cancer on 10 January 2016 - also left $2 million (£1.4m) to his long-term assistant Corinne Schwab and $1 million (£700k) to Marion Skene, the nanny of his eldest son, Duncan.
New York Daily News also claims that Bowie's 15-year-old daughter, Alexandria was left his "much-loved" estate, Little Tonshi Mountain near Woodstock in New York state.
The only other benefactors named were said to be his long-time assistant, Corinne Coco, who was left $2 million and Duncan's childhood nanny, Marion Skene who will receive $1m.
The website also reports that the Blackstar singer asked for his body to be cremated and his ashes to be scattered in a Buddhist ritual in Bali.
Meanwhile, actor Dominic Monaghan has claimed that Bowie auditioned for Lord Of The Rings.
Speaking to the Huffington Post, he recalled seeing the star during his own audition, saying: "As I was reading a magazine waiting, David Bowie came in and signed his little list and went in. I’m assuming he read for Gandalf. I can’t think of anything else he would’ve read for."
Meanwhile, David Bowie's son Duncan Jones has formally broken his Twitter silence, since the death of his father to thank his fans and let them know he is "easing" his way back into Twitter.
