Jimmy KingContrary to reports, David Bowie‘s ashes were not scattered in the Burning Man temple at last week’s Burning Man gathering in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada.

Bowie’s son, Duncan Jones, took to Twitter to dismiss claims that an unidentified goddaughter of his father brought his ashes to the arts gathering in the Nevada desert over Labor Day weekend.

“That Burning Man thing? What people will do & say for attention never ceases to amaze me,” he wrote. “Not true. Kind of a gross claim as well. *sigh*”

Jones later wrote with a wink that if his father’s were to be spread anywhere, it would be at Butlins Skegness, an old-fashioned and some would say tacky coastal vacation development in England.

The rumor started when an insider claimed that Bowie’s wife Iman gave the singer’s godchild permission to take a portion of his ashes to the festival.

Bowie died in January at the age of 69 after an 18-month battle with cancer.
