Almost two years After ‘Black Panther’ actor Chadwick Boseman died of colon cancer at the age of 43, his family puts in place plans to distribute his multi-million dollar estate.
According to entertainment site Shadow and Act, Boseman’s widow, Taylor Simone Ledward, has asked the court to split her late husband’s estate equally between her and her in-laws, Leroy and Carolyn Boseman – 50% for her and him. other half for his Parents.
Since Boseman apparently would not have a will when he died on August 28, 2020, his estate was responsible for paying higher legal fees than if he had.
Documents revealed the estate was valued at $3.8 million before deducting court costs, taxes, funeral expenses and additional attorneys’ payments.
After all bills are processed, his estate balance will be $2.3 million, Radar Online reported.
Boseman, whose life, legacy and career have left a lasting cultural mark on and off screen, reportedly got engaged to Ledward in October 2019, and the couple were quietly married before his death.
The couple started dating before the main man was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2016.
Boseman’s family confirmed he and Ledward were married in a statement announcing his death. “He died at home, with his wife and family by his side,” the statement read.
In October 2020, Ledward-Boseman was appointed a personal representative of the deceased actor’s estate with limited authority.
Last September, Boseman was commemorated at his alma mater, Howard University, a year after his death, with the historically black university officially renaming its college of fine arts in his honor.
“I am extremely pleased that Howard University has chosen to honor my husband in this way and thrilled that Mrs. [Phylicia] Rashad has accepted the role of dean,” Ledward-Boseman said in a statement at the time of the announcement.
“Chad was a very proud buffalo – Howard and Ms. Rashad were integral to his journey as an artist. The restoration of the College of Fine Arts completes this part of its history and ensures that its legacy will continue to inspire young storytellers for years to come.
Boseman is survived by his wife, parents and brothers Kevin and Derrick.
