Paul Walker’s beautiful daughter, Meadows Rain Walker, is set to inherit his $25 million fortune.
The 40-year-old actor, who died along with his friend Roger Rodas in a car crash in November, named his 15-year-old daughter as his sole beneficiary of his estate.
The “Fast and the Furious” star appointed his father Paul Sr. as the executor, who has filed the will with a probate court.
He also petitioned to have the court appoint the late actor’s mother, Cheryl Walker, as Meadow’s legal guardian and the guardian of the teenager’s $25 million fortune, as his son requested in his will.
Meadow currently lives with her mother, Rebecca Soteros, but began living with Paul Walker full-time shortly before his tragic death.
A court hearing will be held later this month.
Paul Walker had planned to give up his acting career in order to spend more time with his teenage daughter and was so happy she was living with him.
Walker’s close friend Ronn Shikari said, “We were really good friends and whenever he was in Hawaii, I would always see him. He’s such a great guy and about as anti-Hollywood as you can get. There’s this image of the movie superstar with the swagger and arrogance and being the big man, but Paul was none of that, he wanted to just be a regular guy.
“He was a family man and I know it hurt him to be spending so much time away from Meadow on location; he loved being with his daughter, she was his world. That’s why he wanted to retire from acting and talked to his family about it, as he’d achieved everything he wanted to achieve. He earned millions from the last Fast and Furious. The big reason he wanted to quit acting was so that he could spend more time with Meadow. It’s a shame that it could never happen.”
Paul’s other pal Vince Krause confirmed that the most important thing in Paul’s life was his family and not his career.
Krause said, “Paul was one of the best people I have ever known. He was as selfless a person as I have met. He loved being a father and it was very clear that his daughter was the most important thing in the world to him. Being a father myself, it was one of the topics we discussed most.”
Just last year, Paul said of his daughter Meadows, “She’s the best partner I’ve ever had. I’ve never had anything like this in my life. I’ve been so transient; I’ve been on my own since I was 16. There’s a part of me who feels like I’m making up for lost time.”
