David Bowie left half of his $100million fortune to his supermodel wife Iman

Iconic rock star David Bowie has left about half of his $100million fortune - as well as a Manhattan apartment - to his supermodel wife Iman, it emerged Friday.

Bowie turned 69 on January 8, the same day his final album Blackstar was released.

He died January 10 after an 18-month battle with cancer, prompting tributes from around the world.

Page Six reported Friday on the details of the rocker's will. 

Page Six reported that Bowie, whose birth name is David Robert Jones, signed the will -- which consists of 20 pages -- on August 25, 2004.

Its report said Bowie instructed two lawyers to pay Iman income from a trust of around $50million four times per year. Bowie and Iman were married for 23 years. 

Quoting the will, Page Six said Iman's able to request more money for the 60-year-old supermodel's 'health, education and maintenance.'
Most of the remaining money will be split between the couple's 15-year-old daughter, Alexandria 'Lexi' Zahra Jones, and Bowie's 44-year-old son with first wife Angie Bowie - the filmmaker Duncan Jones. 

Duncan will be given approximately $25million directly, while Lexi can claim her money at age 25, Page Six reported. On top of the money, Lexi is inheriting an Ulster County, New York, residence.

Duncan's nanny Marion Skene was left $1million, with Bowie's personal assistant Corinne Coco Schwab receiving $2million, Page Six reported.
