However, many were wondering how much wealth the singer would have amassed in his lifetime, and who it would have been left to.
Unsurprisingly, Bowie had quite the fortune to leave behind, which was reported as being approximately £80million, according to court documents filed at the end of January in New York.
Bowie’s will had certain stipulations, with the majority of his wealth to be divided between his wife, supermodel Iman, and his two children, Duncan and Alexandria.
Duncan Jones, born Zowie Bowie, is the son of Bowie and his first wife, Angie, while Lexi is the daughter of Bowie and his second wife, Iman.
As well as this, it was reported his long-standing assistant, Corinne Schwab, was to receive £1.5million, while his friend Marion Skene, who acted as a nanny to Duncan, was to receive nearly £800,000.
