Chadwick Boseman’s wife Taylor Simone Ledward has been named as the administrator of the late actor’s estate with limited authority. As per media reports, Taylor had filed a probate case last month as the actor died without leaving a will. She had requested a judge to name her administrator of Boseman’s estate with limited authority.
The judge granted her legal request and ordered a bond in the amount of $939,000. Taylor will have to file a petition for final distribution before February 22, 2022. In her initial filing, Taylor had listed $938,500 as Boseman’s estate’s estimated value. Besides Ledward, his parents, Leroy and Carolyn Boseman, are the only other family members listed in the documents.
The actor died ‘intestate’ after battling colon cancer for four years. He passed away on August 28 at the age of 43. Boseman had secretly married his longtime love Taylor before his death. They had reportedly become engaged in October 2019.
In a statement announcing his death, the late actor's family confirmed that he had married Ledward. "He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side," the statement had said.
