Chadwick Boseman Did Not Leave a Will
Although Chadwick knew for years he had terminal cancer, we now know he died without writing a will, but he made a key move months before his death to financially protect his wife. Chadwick made the move to marry his then girlfriend Taylor Simone Ledward before he died
They got engaged in late 2019, and reportedly tied the knot at some point in 2020. That’s important because when a person dies without a will and without children, their surviving spouse inherits all the assets of the probate estate.
According to the docs, Taylor gets nearly $1 million in personal property and assets, but that’s not a true reflection of Chadwick’s wealth and success. Most likely the majority of his assets are held in separate private trusts.
