Chadwick Boseman $2.3 Million Fortune To Be Split Among Family
The estate of Chadwick Boseman, the Black Panther star, will be divided equally between his parents Leroy and Carolyn Boseman, and widow Taylor Simone Ledward-Boseman.

Due to the actor’s untimely death from colon cancer in 2020, there was no will to instruct the family on how to manage his wealth.
According to court records, the worth of Boseman’s estate was initially $3,881,758, but after paying for a costly burial and attorney bills, the sum was reduced to $2.5 Million plus $157,000 in cash.
In order to get reimbursement, the widow, Ledward-Boseman, presented paperwork detailing all costs incurred after Boseman’s passing. The actor’s parents will be buried nearby on a plot of land that was purchased as part of the funeral expenses, which came to around $50,000 overall.
A $51,000 tax debt is purportedly due by the actor’s firm, Chadwick Boseman, Inc., and bail for a probate lawsuit cost $900,000. The two parties will share the remaining $2.3 Million, each receiving $1.15 Million.
If Boseman had created a will, it is stated that the significant amount in legal expenditures may have been avoided. Three years after receiving a cancer diagnosis, Taylor Simone Ledward and Boseman discreetly exchanged vows in 2019. Prior to the actor’s diagnosis, they were already dating.
Boseman had roles in Black-American historical dramas ’42’, ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’, ‘Get On Up’, and ‘Da 5 Bloods’ at the time of his death, as well as the most earning superhero picture in Marvel history, ‘Black Panther.’
