Chadwick Boseman’s widow Simone Ledward has reportedly been granted authority to administer her late husband’s estate.

Ledward has limited authority as the personal representative of Boseman’s estate, which is estimated at around $938,500, according to a court order obtained by PEOPLE.

In October, Ledward filed a petition to be appointed administrator in October after Boseman passed away in August at age 43 from colon cancer. He did not leave a will. Now, by February 22, 2021, she will be required to file a $939,000 bond along with the final distribution of the estate. 

In January 2019, the pair made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Screen Actors Guild Awards when Boseman was nominated for Black Panther. Later that year in October, they were engaged. They made their last public appearance together in February at the 2020 NBA All-Star Game in Chicago.
