According to new reports, deceased actor Paul Walker has left his entire $25 million estate to his only child, 15-year-old Meadow Walker. The actor, who starred in the film franchise “Fast & Furious,” named his father executor of the estate. His mother, Cheryl Walker, is named as the child’s guardian. Mr. Walker passed away in a tragic car accident in November 2013. He was travelling as a passenger in a specialty Porsche that collided with a light pole and tree before bursting into flames. The will was filed on January 28, 2014, in a Los Angeles probate court.
The contents of his will comes as a surprise to many, mostly because it did not leave anything other family members. He also left nothing to his longtime girlfriend, 23-year-old Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell. The two had been dating for seven years at the time of Mr. Walker’s untimely passing. The will was signed in 2001, during the same year that Mr. Walker’s first film in the “Fast & Furious” series debuted, generating millions for his estate.
As part of the court filings, Paul Walker Sr. has filed a petition requesting that Cheryl Walker be named guardian of Meadow in accordance with his son’s wishes. While Meadow grew up in Hawaii with her mother, Rebecca Soteros, she had been living with her father in California at the time of his passing. A court hearing has been scheduled for late February. Ms. Soteros has not yet officially indicated whether she will contest the request.
Everyone at The Law Office of James F. Roberts & Associates, APC, expresses sincere condolences to the friends and family of Paul Walker.
