Paul Walker Assets Cause Family Feud

WalkerThe family of Paul Walker are believed to be in the middle of a debate over his $45 million fortune. The assets of Walker are causing a feud between the family as they cannot agree on who will get anything. The main feud is between his parents and the mother of his daughter, Meadow Walker.

It was expected that the money would go to Walker’s 15-year-old daughter. However, there are worries that her mother, Rebecca McBrain, will use some of that money herself. She believes that since she dated the star for a year between 1998 and 1999, she should get some money.

Members of Walker’s immediate family do not believe this. They believe that they should be the “financial caretakers” for their minor granddaughter. They will put some of that money away for 15-year-old Meadow. Walker’s daughter is currently too young to handle such a substantial amount of money.

Another person in the feud is Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell. She was dating Walker at the time of his death, and they had been together for seven years. There have been no comments yet over whether she will receive anything.

It is a devastating time for the family. Meadow was moving to live with her father just before his death, after living with her mother in Hawaii. Walker was reportedly extremely happy to have his daughter so close by.

The Walker assets that are causing the family feud total $45 million. Most of this wealth was gained from the Fast & the Furious franchise, which involved six movies up to the time of his death. The Hollywood star was in the midst of filming the seventh movie, which was put on hiatus after his death. It has now been confirmed that the clips that were filmed will now be used in the final version. The question for many is how they will be handled. Will Walker’s character be killed off onscreen, or will his brother take over the role.

Cody Walker has remained quiet about the situation. He is a stuntman and looks very similar to his older brother. According to reports, it would be very easy for him to come in and play Walker’s role. CGI could be used to make him look even more like Walker. He does not seem to be a part of the feud rising over his brothers estate.

The main cause for concern is McBrain, who wants her entitlement. According to the law, she is not entitled to the money as she is not and was not married to the star. There may be a share for her, but Walker’s parents are not going to let her have all of it. They believe that they can make the best decision for their granddaughter.

Walker is not the only celebrity to have a family feud caused by assets. Others include Anna Nicole Smith and Michael Jackson. However, some other celebrities have had multiple people claiming a right to their assets. At least in this case, the feud has been contained between the parents, daughter, girlfriend and ex-girlfriend. Hence, it should be much easier for them to come to some sort of agreement.

    he must of thought highly of his girlfriend after all he stayed with her for seven years and yes I think she should be entitled to something of his as in sentimental value ,everything else should go to his daughter but not held in trust by the grandparents a court should appoint someone from outside of the family to do this as there will always be bitterness amongst the family if any family member has control of the trust fund.

    meadow should get his estate..his family and jasmine should share his personal items out..and keep pauls charity going

    If he was smart enough to have a financial advisor…who btw was his close friend and other victim than it’s pretty safe to say he had a will drawn. These men were much smarter then you think in terms of finances. Many charity donations are used as tax write offs also. What you people think should be done with the money is irrelevent. In absense of a will it will all be put in trust to his daughter as stated by California law.

    Meadow is the First in line to receive Paul’s estate. Not difficult for any lawyer to make sure she receives it after putting it in a Trust until such a time she can manage it. Paul’s family should not receive anything and certainly not that piece of worthless gutter dwelling garbage Gosnell.
    This kind of money is difficult for anyone to handle and administrators and other people are just waiting to get a hold of it to swindle money from it. If Paul did not have a Will, it will go to Meadow and I am sure the State will receive some of the wealth. This is why everyone needs a Will.
    It won’t be long until Meadow is of age to decide and if she wants her mother to receive some of the estate, she should have the legal capacity to do so.
    I could almost see the dollar signs in his Dad’s eyes when he was saying, “Maybe this was the way it was supposed to be” during an interview after his death.
    Regardless. Meadow should truly be the only one who receives any of it.

    I think Meadow should have the money,she is to young to have that much money,I agree with Pauls mother it should be put in a trust for her until an appropriate age where she will be responsible enough to handle it. She wants to keep ROWW alive in honor of her father,this would allow her to continue doing all the good her father was doing. I think his parents along with a lawyer should be in control of the money until she becomes the age they set forth for her to have control of the money.. Ms.Mcbrain should get NOTHING AT ALL,their daughter is grown there is no reason for her mother to have any money or control of any money left to her daughter Meadow. Paul’s current girlfriend Jasmine should not receive any money either,I do think she should have something of sentimental value of their relationship. Paul had several houses,several cars,let her have one of the houses they spent time together at and the car they used when they were together. Jasmine is in school and she is young,she will eventually find someone to spend the rest of her life with.. My daughter lost the love of her life two years ago,a drunk driver hit him head on,the family included her in his funeral arrangements,and made sure she got things of his that were sentimental to both of them. That was the hardest thing I have ever had to do,telling my daughter he had been killed by a drunk driver. Losing a loved one is devestating,I don’t understand why people have to make it harder by fighting over money and possessions that are left behind.. Paul’s parents are doing the right thing by putting his money in a trust for his daughter until time she can be responsible enough to handle it. I think it is very apparent by his many interviews that taking care of Meadow was his top priority in his life. I really hope he had a will so it will end all of the unnecessary fighting. If he didn’t have a will, I think his parents are doing the right thing by their son and doing what they think and know in their heart Paul would want. I have much RESPECT for Paul’s family and the way they have handled this situation and I am sure they will continue to do what they know Paul would do and that’s all that matters..

    I believe his parents idea of putting it in a trust fund for Meadow is a GREAT idea. He isn’t married to the other women, why should they get anything? Obviously they are both money hungry. If it was me, and I was dating Paul Walker. My heart would be thinking about what he would want, and that is, to make sure his daughter, his ONLY child, is taken care of. And as for Meadows mom, she should be happy Paul’s parents are thinking of her daughter. This is insane. I would wany to stay with Pauls parents, they seem more concerned about Meadow than anything else!

    • Cedric Satterfield   December 25, 2013 at 8:12 pm

      I wouldn’t call staying with him for seven years”money hungry”.

      • TooRotten   January 2, 2014 at 1:21 am

        Yeah, but 7 years no ring, no engagement, they didn’t even live together, her name isn’t on any of the houses, cars, property, she has no rights to what is his! If he had married her, then that would be different, but he didn’t. So, she gets NADA unless his Will states otherwise. It now belongs, or should, to Meadow as his surviving relative.

  7. Julietherockchick   December 25, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    I think that Paul’s parents along with a lawyer should decide how the money is split in the absence of a will. Meadow should receive over half and the rest shared between those Paul would have wanted to benefit, that includes those who tried to save his life and his charity.

  8. Stefan Thomas (@16th_C_Scholar)   December 25, 2013 at 5:50 pm

    I still think they should wait until his will has been read by his attorney; also the driver of the car was his financial advisor, thus we’ll have to see what role that plays in it all. Not to forget will his family receive anything from any investments and life insurance??

  9. Omar king   December 25, 2013 at 5:35 pm

    Why r u all arguing the man is dead isn’t that bad enough. And I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t like this. Money is the root of all evil

  10. new year   December 25, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    It is obvious he brought his daughter in from Hawaii to form a family with the daughter and Jasmine. Jasmine has been at his side and stayed pure for him for a long time. Not seeing Jasmine at the funeral and beach memorial is not good. Just because he is gone does not mean his wishes should not be honored.

    • TooRotten   January 2, 2014 at 1:31 am

      Are you kidding me? If he really loved and cared about her like you imagine he did, then he would have married her, bought her a home, provided for her in the event of his death! So far, all she was was a Girlfriend. Unless stated in his will, she has NO legal leg to stand on! Meadow is his daughter. It should be put into a Trust fund for her, with it being given out at 18 years, 25 years, 30 years and so on up until age 45, then the remainder given over to her total control. Jasmine had 7 years with the man, she has tons of memories, but no rings, no promises, no entitlements. Sorry, but that is the way it is. May he rest in Peace.

  11. traudel   December 25, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    His daughter is his next of kin,noone else should get anything. And by the way him and Jasmine weren’t together, they broke up she has no right to his money only his daughter has the right. It’s sad only 1 month after he was taken away from us, in such a horrible way they fight already who gets what sad sad Paul would not be happy about that we miss and love you Paul. Smile down on us RIP

  12. Bibi   December 25, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    The law in California says that the money goes to his daughter because he wasn’t married. Unless he has something different in his will (if he has one). So, not even his parents get anything. They need a lawyer for this. His ex girlfriend, new girlfriend, parents, brothers ect have no right on getting anything unless a judge says other wise. So they cant be deciding on who gets what on their on their own without legal intervention.

  13. Marisol Delko   December 25, 2013 at 2:49 pm

    I think jasmine and the daughter and grandparents should take the money, in equal shared

  14. kim   December 25, 2013 at 2:44 pm

    The money and I mean all of the Money should be put into a trust until she becomes the age of 25 and someone other than a family member should have control as to how to distribute the money until she reaches that age! Parents,girlfriend,ex girlfriend are not entitled to NONE.

  15. new year   December 25, 2013 at 2:36 pm

    The money should all go to the girlfriend and daughter. Jasmine should stay in the step mom role to honor Paul’s wishes. Saw his daughter had all her friends there to support her at the beach house memorial. Nice to see!! This made me think that if my teenage daughter was friends with her would I let her go to his house? Obviously he and his family & friends see no issues with grown men in their 30′s and 40′s dating teenage girls. Dating and developing relationships with minors is acceptable with these people and that would make it difficult for me to put my teenage girl in that environment.

  16. misty   December 25, 2013 at 1:15 pm

    Split between 3 and then go on Paul would want u to share not fightm

  17. Bethany Guerra   December 25, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    This has got to be a horrible experience for all of the ones that loved him. I cant imagine the anguish his family must be going through. I pray for them. I hope that whatever they decide will be to what Paul would want and for them to keep his charity alive. He was one in a million.

    This is a very sad time for the family. People don’t realize it when you become in the spot light your life is no longer private. I feel for this family, they don’t give you instructions on how to deal with lose or death. I know because I am still dealing with the loss of my mother. It is interesting that when you become in the spot light there are things that you would never expect to happen especially a car accident.

  19. shesknows92   December 25, 2013 at 12:21 am

    This family is still trying to deal with the fact they will never see there
    Love one again! I really don’t think his family worried about money or
    who will benefit from it. I think this story is fabricated by the media
    Let this man rest in peace!!!!!

  20. Yaritza   December 24, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    I hope that somewhere down the line a will comes into play stating that his daughter gets everything and I mean everything! I hate when people who are irrelevant factors in a persons life while them being alive come after they’re deceased claiming what’s rightfully not theirs to begin with. Neither is his girlfriend sorry to say it, if they weren’t married then she shouldn’t get a piece of the lie that’s entirely Meadow whom lighted up his eyes with just hearing her name.

  21. Lorie   December 24, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    Well i think yes the grandparents should have say over the money over what paul daughter share . Yes give medows mother something but .dont let her have control. As for pauls girlfriend for 7 yrs yes. She derverse something but. It all boils down to a daughter lost her daddy. And she is whts important. And. The GRANDPARENTS. HAVE SAY. OVER. IT ALL

  22. Not true   December 24, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    I stopped reading as soon as you mentioned “Rebecca McBrain”. Even some fans with no journalism experience are smart enough to know thats not her name, so logically all credibility is thrown out of this article. Its either exaggerated or hearsay sorry..

  23. ty stewart   December 24, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    Parents and child get 50/50

  24. Virginia   December 24, 2013 at 6:29 pm

    just leave to the parents. too many people involved in this mess. Paul would not want any of this to happen. where is the peace people????

  25. Cedric Satterfield   December 24, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    If I dated some girl that made bank later in life, why would I be “entitled” to any of it? Thus, other than for the care of their daughter, why should his ex girlfriend?
