Paul Walker’s death was a terrible blow to his family but it also created a rift among them over a mere $45 million. Ex-girlfriend Rebecca McBrain has claimed some of the assets Walker inherited. This has made the parents really uncomfortable it seems. Rebecca McBrain and his daughter Meadow Walker are still very much in the scene but Walker’s parents are remaining quiet about McBrain. However, they do not mind keeping a certain portion of the assets for Meadow. The cause of the feud may seem pretty insignificant especially when the wound is still fresh, but this is causing real tension among the family members.
According to a source for Star Magazine, Rebecca McBrain asserted that she should get some of assets of the late actor. She dated him for 1 year, from 1998 to 1999. Not only McBrain, Walker’s last girlfriend Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell also claimed some of the money. Cheryl Walker and Paul Walker Sr. do not intend to share the assets with McBrain as per the sources. According to a source “Paul’s parents want to have control of his assets” because of several internal reasons.
Paul Walker’s parents have clear intentions of keeping the money safe with them and then transferring a portion of it to their granddaughter Meadow. On the other hand, Jasmine Pilchard Gosnell had dated Walker for 7 years till he met with the accident. This creates a hazy picture here as even she wants to have a portion of the money. Whether it is right or wrong is a different question altogether but the question lies unanswered about the division of the assets. $45 million is not a matter of joke and more than the money it is his respect which is important. The feud it seems has gone out of control and the family is trying to cope with it. Mourning has not ended and his death has started raising a lot of questions. As soon as this issue is resolved the better and hopefully they will sort the problem out sometime soon.
In an exclusive interview with the Hollywood Life, a source confirmed that Walker was really happy about his daughter staying with him. Source added that “He was happier than you can imagine” as Meadow moved to Walker’s house from her mother’s Hawaii home. An insider confirmed the true view point of Cheryl Walker that “Meadow is too young to handle that much money,” so the grandparents want to have the control of it.
There are several advancements taking place with regard to the road crash of Walker. The fans of the late actor want to rename the road where the crash took place to Walker Rodas Memorial Parkway. The local residents however are opposed to this idea. Almost 2000 fans signed a petition to rename the road after Walker’s death but it is stuck in limbo. So, the situation is getting messy with another feud brewing up over this issue. Whether it is the family feuds over $45 million or the road rename issue the scenario is not pretty smooth at present. Nevertheless, above all the only thing which should prevail is to keep the respect of Paul Walker intact in every way possible.
