Chadwick Boseman’s widow, Simone Ledward, was named his estate administrator after her death in August at age 43 from colon cancer.
The Black Panther actor, who did not leave a will, had assets worth $ 938,500 according to the people, citing court documents, and Ledward has limited authority over his discretion.
She is now the personal representative with limited authority of Chadwick’s estate. She now has until Feb. 22, 2021 to post a $ 939,000 bond and distribute the assets, according to court documents.
Ledward, who got engaged to Chadwick last year – had filed a petition to administer the estate in October.
Boseman, also known for his work in films like 42, Marshall, Get on Up, and Draft Day, was diagnosed with stage three cancer in 2016 and has undergone “ countless surgeries and chemotherapy ” in his battle with the disease, his family said.
They added that he was ‘dead at home, with his wife and family by his side’, adding that ‘it was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther’ ‘.
