The late Chadwick Boseman’s widow has been named the administrator of his estate.
The Black Panther actor had assets valued at $938,500 and did not leave a will before he died in August aged 43 from colon cancer.
Simone is now the personal representative with limited authority of Chadwick’s estate, People reported. She has until February 22, 2021, to file a $939,000 bond and distribute the assets, according to court filings.
Simone (who got engaged to Chadwick last year) had put in a petition to administrate the Marvel star’s estate in October.
Chadwick and Simone, who kept their relationship out of the spotlight, were last seen together publicly at February’s NBA All-Star Game – in which the late Kobe Bryant was honored.
The 21 Bridges star previously paid tribute to Simone during his acceptance speech at the 50th NAACP Image Awards in March last year.
“Simone, you’re with me every day. I have to acknowledge you right now. Love you,” he said.
Chadwick was diagnosed with stage three cancer in 2016 and secretly had “countless surgeries and chemotherapy”. His brothers, Kevin and Derrick, recently revealed the star was “ready to die” just before he lost his battle with cancer.
