The will filed by David Bowie calls for his wife to receive half of the approximately $100 million dollar estate and retain ownership of the couple's New York City apartment. His two children will share the bulk of the remaining money, with his daughter also getting some other property in New York State the singer owned. Bowie also left $2 million to his personal assistant and $1 million to the nanny that helped raise his oldest child Duncan, (originally named Zowie Bowie), now a 44 year-old film director.
