Duncan Jones has taken to twitter to dispel the reports that David Bowie's ashes were scattered at this year's Burning Man festival.

It was previously reported that David Bowie, who died this January, had his ashes scattered at Burning Man festival.

According to E!, one of Bowie's godchildren took a portion of the late singer's ashes to the festival, which took place last week in the Nevada desert. The report said that Bowie's wife Iman gave the singer's godchild permission to take a portion of his ashes to the festival.

David Bowie released his final album, Blackstar, a few days before he died earlier this year.
