Paul Walker's Dad

I'm the Money Man

Paul Walker got his dying wish -- at least one of them -- TMZ has learned, his dad is now officially the executor of his estate ... just like Paul requested in his will.

A judge approved Paul's request to make his dad executor this morning in Santa Barbara court.

The entire family was there -- Paul's mom and dad, his 15-year-old daughter Meadow, and Meadow's mother Rebecca Soteros. The issue of Meadow's guardianship was not raised in court.

As we reported, Paul specified in his will that he wanted his mother Cheryl to become Meadow's guardian in the event of his death. He made no mention of Rebecca.

Meadow's guardianship will be determined at a later hearing -- for now, she's living with grandma.

How can you make a grandmother a guardian if the child has a mother, did this mother lose custody ? I know the daughter moved too live with her father, well whatever transpires I hope Meadow is where she wants too be and never gets taken advantage of by peeps who likely will not have HER best interest, she will have a lot of money on her own too control in a few years, best wishes too her and her family through all this awful time.

Money does strange things to people. I hope there is a trust for all that money and they don't have free reign.

That's Cody. <3
You have to remember that Meadow wanted to move to CA to be closer to her dad (Paul). I'm sure there's a lot we will never know, this family is everything Hollywood isn't and that is - private. Meadow was able to spend time with her dad to make up for I guess lost time, she had been living in Hawaii with her mother. I'm glad she did. And you have to give credit to Paul's parents for raising such a good family. Paul didn't fall prey to his fame, and a lot of that has to do with his upbringing, something always stays with you no matter how old you get. I don't question why he would want the same for his daughter that is, principles and surrounded by family who are not fame hungry and unstable. Her life is now in CA. Paul's will says a lot about the love his had for his family. There's no drama here. It's clear.

You forgot to mention that Cody was also there. He's Paul's little brother.

Paul was a good dude. All will work out in the end.

I hope the money is kept with a good financial management firm with a trust agreement. The girl's mother is an out of control alcoholic, so in essence she has no parents. I hope the grandparents do right by her and don't get touchy with her money.

Paul, really, that is your granddaughter. Why you gonna let her walk behind you like she's a dog or a ho. You are her male role model now, so show her how she should be treated by men, and that ain't it.

Put the therapists in charge.

Not the money.

Bring some good PhD's in.

Dr. Phil if he would.

Would like to see Rebecca restored as Guardian.

So that this family can heal and get even more Well.

Making Rebecca the Villain and Heavy - ?

1. Hurts.
2. Tells only part of the story (and not Rebecca's).
3. Makes family members combatants.

Who line up against one another.

Paul was a good guy but not perfect.
