Alexandria Zahra Jones is the daughter of the late David Bowie and model and designer Iman. Named recently in her late father's will, Alexandria Zahra Jones will one day be a very wealthy woman.

According to a report from the New York Times, Bowie--whose real name was David Jones--left behind a 20-page will that was filed in Manhattan on Friday. The singer and actor was worth approximately $100 million.

David Jones left the two penthouses he purchased in 1999 and combined, to his wife Iman Abdulmajid Jones. Of the remainder of his estate, one-quarter is left too his son from his marriage to the former Mary Angela Barnett--Duncan Jones--and one-quarter to Alexandria Zahra Jones. Iman receives one-half of the remaining estate, with the exception of money bequeathed to the family's nanny and David Bowie's longtime personal assistant.

Corinne Schwab, known as Coco, was that personal assistant. She will receive $2 million. The family nanny, Marion Skene, will receive $1 million.

David Bowie also owned a mountain retreat in upstate New York, which will go to his daughter.

Since Alexandria Zahra Jones is only 15, her portion of her late father's estate will go into a trust. Most trusts allow disbursements every few years at certain ages.

David Bowie died on January 10 at his home in Manhattan of cancer. He was cremated, per his wishes, in New Jersey on January 12. Per his wishes, his ashes will be strewn in Bali, “in accordance with the Buddhist rituals of Bali.”

Alexandria Zahra Jones will one day be an incredibly rich woman, but would likely trade the wealth for more time with her beloved father.
