David Bowie's Will: Father Played Fair

As we noted the other day, one third of parents leave their children unequal inheritances. Previous generations were much more likely to treat their children equally.

So you might say David Bowie executed an old-school will. He left equal shares of his estate, estimated at $100 million or so,  to his son from his first marriage and his teenage daughter. (Her inheritance will be held in trust.)

Bowie also upheld old-school values by leaving seven-figure bequests to his personal assistant and his daughter's nanny.
