Chadwick Boseman left no will, widow files for authority over estate


Late Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman’s wife Simone Ledward has filed a petition to be named as a limited-authority administrator of his estate.

This comes after reports that the late Wakanda star left no will at the time of his death on Friday, August 28.

According to News Day, the petition was filed at a Los Angeles, US court for letters of administration which is also called a probate petition on Thursday, October 15.

The petition would give Simone limited authority over Boseman’s $938 500 estate and it comes just two months after the actor’s death. Simone got married to Boseman months before his demise due to complications from colon cancer.

The 43-year-old actor had properties and assets that are not included in this petition. A hearing is set to take place on November 19.

Boseman and Simone, a singer, reportedly started dating way back in 2015 after they were photographed together and finally made their red carpet debut in January 2019.

Simone is reported to have shown off her engagement ring later last year while attending a basketball game but the two never confirmed they were married.

A statement that was released by the family after Boseman’s death appeared to confirm that Simone was actually his wife. The two did not have any children and the actor is survived by his parents, Leroy and Carolyn Boseman.
