Paul Walker Leaves $25 Million Estate To DaughterBy: Lindsay McCane - February 5, 2014
Paul Walker, the late actor that made his way to fame during his time spent working on the Fast and Furious franchise, has left his entire estate to his 15-year-old daughter Meadow.
If you recall, Walker was driving through Santa Clarita, California when the Porsche, he was a passenger in, was involved in a fiery accident that killed him and the driver Roger Rodas, on November 30, 2013. Walker was in town to attend a charity event when the crash occurred, and according to the death certificate, Walker died quickly from “combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries.”
Now, more than two months later, Walker’s will has been released, and it has been revealed that he was worth $25 million, all of which he left to his daughter. Walker apparently prepared his will in 2001, the same year that The Fast and the Furious was released.
Walker’s father, also named Paul, was named the executor of the will, and Walker’s mother Cheryl was to serve as the guardian of his daughter. While this may seem like clear cut instructions, it could turn out to be quite a mess because Meadow currently lives with her mother Rebecca McBrain in Hawaii. It was only a few short years ago that Meadow made the decision to live with her dad in California, and up until that point, she had grown up living in Hawaii.
It was obvious, to Walker’s close friends and family, that having Meadow live with him was greatly impacting his life for the better. “He told me recently he was the happiest he’d ever been,” a friend close to Walker Brandon Birtell said. “It was directly because of the growing relationship with his daughter and the clarity that brought to his life.”
