Paul Walker

Will Had BIG Mistake

But In Death It All Works Out

Paul Walker's will was poorly drafted ... making it SEEM like he wanted his mom to wrestle parental control of his daughter from his baby mama--  yet in a strange twist of events, the will now reflects exactly what Paul would have wanted.

Paul's will was drafted back in 2001 ... and it makes his mother Cheryl the legal guardian of Meadow. It reeks of a family feud because there's no mention of Meadow's mother Rebecca Soteros.  

The guardianship clause doesn't make sense ... because at the time the will was drafted Meadow lived with her mom in Hawaii .... and sources close to Paul say he was happy with the arrangement when he signed the will

Now the twist of fate.  Three years ago Meadow moved to Southern California to live with her dad and Rebecca stayed in Hawaii.  Meadow wants to continue living in So. Cal. and Rebecca is fine with it ... she will continue to live in the Aloha state.

So now it makes complete sense for Paul's mom Cheryl to become the guardian of Meadow. 

As TMZ first reported ... Paul's father -- executor of the will -- has petitioned the court to make Paul's mom guardian of Meadow.   Cheryl will also be the trustee of Paul's $25 million estate -- which will eventually go outright to Meadow.

So ... Father did know best.

Um..no.... This just means that, as always TMZ LIED or just ran with the very first tip they got and are explaining it away so they don't have to apologize. Just another day working for a trashy tabloid, I guess.

This is still very heartbreaking, the way he did was so awful. Who cares who got what. Posting a picture with her smiling next to the words "25 million" is just tasteless. As a 30 year old, I would be devastated if I lost a parent. I can't even imagine what Meadow is going through. She's his baby girl and she lost her father who was a beautiful person. Yes he dated a woman way younger, but he obviously had the parents approval. No one is perfect. Anyway, give this story a rest and let his family mourn properly.

I think the will he made before his death is good and it will not give any means of fraud with his Investment.
Thanks

What did he leave to his reach out world wide to make sure that it continued once he was gone? Maybe it only mattered to him as long as he was here.

I don't have idea if this is true,but i saw comments,on one site,that her mom was arrested and at the rihab(alcohol)...
So,this beautiful man did everything to protect his daughter!He did the right thing!
I don't understand why everyone is talking about his ex...he wasn't with her from 2011....Only his daughter can get his money,no one else....

Paul Walker was a pedophile. he's was with his 23 year old girlfriend for 7 years and he was 40 when he died. That means he was 33 when he started dating her at 16.
