Chadwick Boseman‘s widow Taylor Simone Ledward makes a request to the courts to make her an administrator with limited authority over her late husband’s estate.  

The ‘Black Panther’ star passed away from a long time battle with colon cancer at age 43, leaving no will in place, hence the filing by his widow Taylor Simone Ledward. 

According to E! News, the documents obtained named ‘Ledward file’ appear to confirm action of the probate case in Los Angeles on Thursday, October 15th.  The documents also listed Chadwick’s parents Leroy and Carolyn Boseman but details shared so far haven’t clarified to what extent they will be involved. 

Chadwick had a successful career with excellent reviews for his portrayals of Jackie Robinson in 42 (2013), James Brown in Get On Up (2014), and T’Challa in Black Panther. His Black Panther estate per documents filed is estimated at $938,500.
