Chadwick Boseman, star of Black Panther, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and a host of other well-received movies, died without a will. The actor succumbed to a silent battle with colon cancer in 2020 and, now, his widow and his parents have reached an agreement on how to share the fortune he left behind.
According to court documents, Boseman’s estate will be split evenly between his widow, Taylor Simone Ledward, and his parents, Leroy and Carolyn Boseman.
The late actor’s estate was previously valued at $3.8 million, but due to the fact that he left no will in the wake of his death, his estate had to pay significantly higher legal fees than if he had.
50% of the remaining balance will go to his wife and 25% to both his mom and dad, respectively.
Chadwick Boseman will best be remembered for playing the eponymous hero and king of the fictitious Wakanda in Marvel Studios’ Black Panther back in 2018. May his soul continue to rest in peace.
