Actor Paul Walker of Fast & Furious fame, who died in a car accident in November, left his entire fortune of $25 million to his 15-year-old daughter, who had recently left her mother and childhood home in Hawaii to live with him in California.
Walker did not leave a dime to any other family members or even his girlfriend.
But Walker’s will did have one catch. His daughter, Meadow, will not be able to touch the money until she becomes an adult. Nothing unusual there, except that Walker named his own mother to be Meadow’s guardian.
According to an article on cafemom.com, this is a bit unusual and could be tricky. One wonders why he named Meadow’s grandmother as her guardian rather than Meadow’s own mother, Rebecca Soteros.
However, the matter will be decided by a judge later this month. In the meantime, Meadow is back in Hawaii living with her mother.
Walker was a very private person and not much is known about the circumstances of his breakup or the decision to have Meadow come live with him in California.
