Chadwick Boseman's Wife Files Probate Case As Actor Died Without Will

October 16 2020

Chadwick Boseman's wife is going to court to protect the late actor's assets.

According to reports, Boseman's widow, Taylor Simone Ledward, has filed a probate case with the Los Angeles court system in an effort to be named the executor of Boseman's estate, which has a value of nearly $1 million.

The case is necessary since when Boseman died in August from colon cancer, he didn't have a will. Boseman's parents, Leroy and Carolyn Boseman, are also listed along with Ledward in the filing.

TMZ states, "According to the docs, Taylor gets nearly $1 million in personal property and assets, but that's not a true reflection of Chadwick's wealth and success. Most likely the majority of his assets are held in separate private trusts."

Ledward and Boseman were married before Boseman's passing.
