Anthony Bourdain Leaves Most of His Money for Daughter in Will

Globe-trotting chef, author and TV host Anthony Bourdain was worth only $US1.2 million ($1.6 million) when he died last month, according to court papers filed this week in NY. Most of his estate has been left to his 11-year-old daughter.

Per the Manhattan Surrogate's Court documents filed Thursday, his estate includes $425,000 in savings and cash, $35,000 in brokerage accounts, $250,000 in personal property and $500,000 in "intangible property including royalties and residuals", according to USA Today.

Anthony Bourdain's will revealed new details about his finances after his death.

Radar readers know Anthony Bourdain took his own life by hanging on June 8 at age 61 in France, after reportedly suffering from depression.

Bourdain's will was written in 2016, before his split with Busia-Bourdain.

Busia-Bourdain was listed as the executor of the will.


Bourdain's breakthrough as an author came with the 2000 publication of "Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly".

Since his daughter, Ariana, is still a minor, a guardian will protect her interests in his estate until she turns 18.

He left the same instructions for cars, furniture, books, clothing and other household items.

Ariane is Bourdain's only child.

The will also stated that had Ariane died before her father, her nanny Myra Quizon would have received his money.

His death resulted in an outpouring of grief and sorrow from his many fans, the food and media communities, and his girlfriend Asia Argento, who wrote on Twitter, "Anthony gave all of himself in everything that he did".
