Music icon David Bowie has been secretly cremated without any of his family present…
He told his family and friends that he wanted to go ‘without any fuss’, and not have a funeral or a public memorial.
A source in New York, where Bowie has been living, said:
There is no public or private service or a public memorial. There is nothing.
It is believed his body was cremated shortly after his death, to avoid something like a televised funeral service. It’s very fitting, for a man who was very private in his life.
A second source in the US said:
In many respects you don’t need a memorial or service to remember David by…you have his music instead. He would have wanted to just disappear with no fuss, no big show, no fan-fare. This would totally be his style. His last album Blackstar was very much his goodbye to fans instead.
