Paul Walker wanted to make sure his daughter was taken care of in the event of his death. The late actor, who was killed in a car crash at age 40 last November, apparently left his entire $25 million fortune to 15-year-old Meadow, TMZ reported Tuesday, Feb. 4, citing a copy of Walker's will.
According to documents obtained by the site, the star's father, Paul Walker III, filed the will with the court and petitioned to have his wife, Cheryl, appointed as Meadow's guardian. Paul Sr. also reportedly wants Cheryl to be the custodian of the $25 million, per his son's will.
Meadow, who was staying with her dad in L.A. prior to his death, currently lives with her mom, Rebecca Soteros, in Hawaii. A court hearing regarding Paul Sr.'s requests is scheduled later this month.
As previously reported, Walker died on Nov. 30 when the Porsche in which he was a passenger crashed in Santa Clarita and then burst into flames. A coroner's report released last month stated that the car had been going at least 100 miles per hour when the accident occurred; previous findings indicated that the Fast & Furious star died of a combination of traumatic and thermal injuries.
Speaking about Meadow before his death, the proud father said life with his daughter was "perfect" — and getting better every day. "I'm glad I had her at 25, because at 40 and 15, we're matching up sweet," he told Us Weekly. "It's just working."
