Paul Walker’s mother is supposedly seeking guardianship of her granddaughter.
The Fast & Furious actor died in a fiery car crash last November at the age of 40, and his 15-year-old daughter Meadow is his only surviving heir.
And TMZ reports Paul’s mum, Cheryl Walker, has filed legal documents asking the courts to be Meadow’s legal guardian.
According to documents obtained by the website, Cheryl objects to her granddaughter’s birth mother, Rebecca Soteros, caring for the teenager due to her problems with alcoholism.
The outlet claims Rebecca was arrested for driving under the influence in 2003 and again last year, and apparently Meadow came to live with her father three years before his death because her mother was too overwhelmed by addiction to provide proper care.
Cheryl purportedly states she is more than qualified to be Meadow’s guardian, as she has raised four children of her own, is a registered nurse and a “loving person”.
Paul left his entire $25 million fortune to Meadow.
In February Paul’s father, who is executor of the estate, filed the late star’s will with the court.
At the time of the will filing, the patriarch also supposedly petitioned to appoint Paul’s mother, Cheryl, as both Meadow’s guardian and the guardian of her father’s millions, as instructed by their son.
Meadow was staying with Paul in Los Angeles at the time of his death and she is currently living with her mother Rebecca Soteros in Hawaii, Us Weekly previously reported. However, it is unclear if Paul’s former flame Rebecca was named in the will.
