David Bowie’s ashes have reportedly been scattered at Burning Man over Labor Day weekend.

The late rock icon – who passed away following a secret cancer battle in January – is said to have been laid to rest at the annual gathering in the Nevada desert.

According to E! News, the star’s godchild was given permission by his widow Iman, who shared a special collection with the spiritual event.

The reports adds that the Starman singer was honoured with a small ceremony at the Temple, which is erected for attendees to pay tribute to their loved ones – and burned to the ground at the end of the week-long gathering.

An eyewitness added: “We played [David’s] music the entire drive from our camp to the Temple and back… Most of us had the Bowie [lightening bolt] face paint on in his honour.”

A spokesperson for the late star has denied the reports.

Mark Milhaly, who runs the blog Burn.Life, and attended the festival this year, was the first person to write about Bowie’s ashes being scattered at the temple.

He exclusively told Mirror Celeb: “It originally came from my blog. There’s no question it’s true. I’ve spoken to multiple people who were there, including an art car owner who was in the procession and is in contact with Mr. Bowie’s family. I’ve also seen photographs, which I’m not allowed to share out of respect.

“The family member who brought the ashes requested to be taken out of my piece, so I removed him/her from my article and post. It was apparently supposed to be a fairly private affair, but when you have dozens of people at something it’s unlikely to remain totally private.”

Meanwhile, his wife Iman has been keeping a low profile since losing her husband to cancer, but she recently attended Tom Ford’s show as part of New York Fashion Week, where she wore a necklace bearing David’s name.

Speaking as the event, she said: “I’m wearing this [David] necklace until my death. I’ve been wearing it since…[his death.]”

Iman, 61, added to People magazine: “It’s just been a tough year, but I’m holding up.”

Just two months after David’s death, Iman’s mother Marian Abdulmajid also passed away.

After the event Iman shared a picture on Instagram of her wearing an electric-blue velvet suit featuring a plunging neckline, with her brown hair cascading over her shoulders.

She wrote: “Made It My First Night Out! Thanks @tomford for a very glam but intimate presentation. (sic)”

Earlier that night, she posted a picture with her hair wrapped in a towel, and added: “My first night out attending an event since last year!”

On Father’s Day back in June Iman took to Instagram and shared a picture of the ‘Space Oddity’ hitmaker cradling their daughter Lexi when she was just a baby.

She captioned the image: “Happy Fathers Day #LexiLove (sic)”

Earlier that month, Iman remembered the Ziggy Stardust star on what would have been their 24th wedding anniversary. She wrote: “June 6th…, 24th wedding anniversary #foreverlove (sic)”

The picture had the words “The best thing about me is you” written on it.

The model previously revealed the secret to their long-lasting marriage.

She said: “We both understand the difference between the person and the persona. When we are home, we are just Iman and David. We’re not anybody else.

“I think the secret to a lasting marriage is timing, first of all. You have to be at the right time in your life that you’re ready for an everlasting relationship, that it becomes first, and a priority in life.”
