Chadwick Boseman died without a will

I can not stress this enough.  A will is one of the most important things you can do for your loved ones. Spare them the pain of feeling like petty bitches when they are forced to beg for the things they love from you.

According to new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, the Chadwick Boseman star ‘died intestate’ meaning without a legal will, and now his wife — Taylor Simone Ledward — is asking a judge to make her executor of his estate.

As you recall, the award-winning actor died after a 4 year battle with colon cancer, and many of his fellow actors and fans had no idea he was sick.

According to the legal documents, Chadwick’s estate is worth $939,000, which included 936,000 in “personal property.”

The number seems surprisingly low, but it’s possible this only accounts for the actor’s real estate holdings and not the vast amount of income he received from blockbuster movies. It’s possible much of his wealth is held in a trust and doesn’t necessarily need to be included with the probate filing. But, it is odd that someone who was suffering from cancer for such a long time didn’t have a will in place, in case he passed away.
