Nearly two years after the sudden and tragic death of Paul Walker, his daughter Meadow, 16, is taking legal action. No, she’s not suing the driver of the vehicle that Paul was riding in, but instead she’s suing (on behalf of his estate) Porsche, the car company, for wrongful death.
Paul Walker made sure his daughter would be well taken care of if anything should ever happen to him. The late actor, who died in a car accident in November, left his entire estate, valued at $25 million, to his daughter Meadow, 15.
In his will, drawn up in 2001 after the first installment of The Fast & The Furious released, Paul names his father as the executor and his mother as Meadow’s guardian. Meadow had moved to California a few years ago to live with her dad; she previously lived in Hawaii with her mom. Meadow wants to stay in Southern California to finish school and it looks as though her mother is going to allow that to happen.
The bulk of Paul’s money is in a home that’s valued at $10 million and other personal property worth around $8 million or so. He also money coming in from the various films he recently completed. Needless to say, Meadow will want for nothing.

Paul Walker’s tragic and untimely death has rocked Hollywood and beyond as friends and family mourn their loss. The actor had been in the process of working on and promoting several upcoming films. During the promotion of “Hours” (due out December 13th), a film about Hurricane Katrina, the actor shared some insight into his father-daughter relationship to Meadow, 15.
Paul shared that Meadow is the one who was encouraging him to keep acting, so she could travel along with him. “It’s so funny, my daughter now lives with me full time and my original plan was to work up until I was 40 then reassess my life, even go in a completely different direction with things. She keeps encouraging me to do all this stuff. I thought at this point in my life I would need to be home with her, but she wants me to keep acting so she can travel around the world with me. Would that be so bad? Thing is, I went to a born-again Christian high school, was brought up in a traditional Mormon family where these ideas about parenting are of structure and sacrifice. To think outside of that idea of family and parenting that I’ve grown up with is tough, but also very freeing.”
It’s just so incomprehensible for a young children to lose a parent. Our hearts go out to Meadow and her family.
Fans have been flocking to the crash site and have set up a makeshift memorial for the late actor. See a few of the photos in the gallery below.
