According to new reports, the late Paul Walker’s estate, worth $25 million, was left entirely to his only child, 15-year-old Meadow Walker. The actor, who starred in the film franchise “Fast & Furious”, named his father as the executor of the estate, and his mother, Cheryl Walker, as the child’s guardian. Mr. Walker passed away in a tragic car accident in November 2013. He was traveling 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 on the late Paul Walker’s estate.
The contents of his will come as a surprise to many, mostly because it did not leave anything to other family members. He also left nothing to his long-time girlfriend, 23-year-old Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, whom he had been dating for seven years at the time of his 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. Although Meadow grew up in Hawaii with her mother, Rebecca Soteros, she was living with her father in California at the time of his passing. A court hearing has been scheduled for late February, but 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.
