It has been revealed that Chadwick Boseman ‘died intestate’ (without a legal will), after he lost his four-year battle with colon cancer earlier this year.

The Black Panther star’s widow Taylor Simone Ledward has now taken the steps to be put in charge of his estatee after she filed a probate case on Thursday.

According to TMZ, Simone filed a request for a judge to name her administrator of the estate with limited authority in a Los Angeles court.

Ledward listed the estimated value of Boseman’s estate as $938,500 (£851,125).

The estate most likely only accounts for the actor’s real estate holdings while his income from his many blockbuster films might be held in a trust – which doesn’t necessarily need to be included with the probate filing.

According to Page Six, the document states that Boseman is survived by his parents, Leroy and Carolyn Boseman, and his wife, Ledward. No other family is listed.

The Da 5 Bloods star tragically passed away aged 43 in August, with his wife at his bedside alongside close family.

And it was only after he died that it was revealed the 21 Bridges actor married Ledward in secret prior to his death.

Chadwick is said to have asked Taylor, a singer, to marry him last October and the two allegedly said their vows in a private ceremony before the actor’s cancer advanced.

The couple was first confirmed in 2015, when they were spotted together by paparazzi at Los Angeles International Airport.
