Anthony Bourdain’s 11-Year-Old Daughter Will Receive Most of Late Father’s $1.21 Million Estate
Anthony Bourdain has left behind most of his wealth to his 11-year-old daughter.
According to documents filed Thursday (July 5), provided by Manchester Surrogate's Court via New York Daily News, the celebrity chef had sworn most of his $1.21 dollar estate to his one and only child, Ariane Bourdain, before his untimely passing last month at age 61.
As outlined in his will, the Parts Unknown personality's capital, to which Bourdain's estranged wife Ottavia Busia-Bourdain has been listed as executor, includes "$425,000 in savings and cash, $35,000 in brokerage money, $250,000 in personal property" and $500,000 in "intangible property including royalties and residuals.”
Busia-Bourdain, 61, has been sanctioned to take the Kitchen Confidential author's "personal and household" belongings, including Bourdain's cars, furnishings, and frequent flier miles.
The news of Ariane's rank as beneficiary arrives nearly one month after the star committed suicide on June 8 in Kayserberg, France, where Bourdain was shooting new episodes for his Netflix show. On June 24, a toxicology report returned the famous chef had no trace of narcotics in his system when he hung himself in his hotel room.
According to the New York Daily News, due to her minor status, Ariane's supervisor in charge of safeguarding the handling of her inheritance will be decided by the court.
