WASHINGTON: Hollywood star Chadwick Boseman's wife has been named as the administrator of the late actor's estate with limited authority.
According to Page Six, Taylor Simone Ledward filed a probate case in October, as the 'Black Panther' star died without a will. She requested a judge to name her administrator of Boseman's estate with limited authority.
As Boseman died without a will, on Thursday (local time), November 19, the judge granted her legal request, Page Six confirmed.
The judge ordered bond in the amount of USD 939,000, and Ledward has to file a petition for final distribution no later than February 22, 2022.
In her initial filing, Ledward listed the estimated value of Boseman's estate as USD 938,500.
Boseman is survived by his parents, Leroy and Carolyn Boseman, and his wife, Ledward. No other family was listed in her probate filing.
