Anthony Bourdain's Will Reveals Fortune Goes Mostly to Daughter

Citing new legal filings, Page Six said the acclaimed TV chef was worth just $1.21 million when he died, despite previous estimations that he was worth $16 million.

A copy of the Parts Unknown host's will was filed in a NY court on Thursday, detailing his $425,000 in cash, $35,000 in brokerage accounts, $250,000 in personal property, and $500,000 in "intangible property including royalties and residuals".

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.

The court docs also mention a $1-million mortgage, but no other details were given.

The will was written in 2016, shortly before Bourdain and Busia split.

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

Busia was left with her late husband's cars, furniture, books, clothing, household items and frequent flyer miles. He left similar instructions for other things, such as his vehicle, clothing and books.

The docs also reveal that a guardian of the estate will be chosen by the court to keep Ariane's inheritance safe, as she is a minor.

The 61-year-old Bourdain was found dead June 8 in an apparent suicide in his hotel room in Kaysersberg, France, an ancient village where he was working on his CNN series "Parts Unknown". If her father had outlived her, his estate would have been awarded to her nanny, Myra Quizon.

"Parts Unknown", his most recent show, was part travelogue, part history lesson, part homage to exotic foods.

Bourdain's will was filed this week in a NY court.
