Anthony Bourdain's will reveals he left his estate to his daughter

Anthony Bourdain's will reveals he left his estate to his daughter

Bourdain's 11-year-old daughter, Ariane Busia-Bourdain, will reportedly receive the majority of his fortune. Additionally, he had $35,000 in brokerage funds, $250,000 in personal property and another $500,000 in "intangible property including royalties and residuals".

Christian de Rocquigny, the French public prosecutor overseeing the case, confirmed to The New York Times and People that Bourdain's cause of death was suicide by hanging.

Bourdain's ex-wife, Ottavia Busia will reportedly be the executor of his estate, and guard the money until their daughter is of legal age. He began dating actress Asia Argento in early 2017 and publicly supported Argento after she accused Harvey Weinstein of rape.

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

Since his divorce with Busia was never formalized, she is legally still his next of kin.

Anthony also had a ritzy New York City condo that wasn't listed in the court documents, but there was a $1 million mortgage liability for a property, which many believe was in reference to the condo. 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.

Bourdain's profile soared in 1999 when The New Yorker published his article Don't Eat Before Reading This, which he developed into the 2000 book, Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly.

Bourdain, 61, had been working on the new episode of his show with CNN, "Parts Unknown".

"'Low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi beer.' This is how I'll remember Tony", Obama tweeted shortly after Bourdain's passing.
