Anthony Bourdain Estate Valued at $1.2 Million

About a month after Anthony Bourdain died on June 8 in France by apparent suicide, court documents revealed his wishes as specified in his will.

A copy of Bourdain's will was filed in a NY court Thursday and the celebrity chef/TV host left behind about $1.2 million in known assets at the time of his death.

His assets include $425,000 in "cash and savings", $35,000 in a brokerage account, $250,000 and "personal property", and $500,000 in "intangible property including royalties and residuals", according to court papers.

The celebrity chef's NY condo, which was reported to be worth $3.35 million when he bought it in 2014, was not included in the will, but the filings indicate a $1 million mortgage liability for an unspecified property.

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.


According to TMZ, though, Bourdain's actual worth is likely much higher than the amount listed in his will.

The will was signed in 2016 after Ottavia and Anthony called it quits.

Bourdain's will instructs Busia to dispose of his "accumulated frequent flier miles" and other possessions like cars, furnishings and jewelry in a way she believes he would've wanted. He left similar instructions for other things, such as his vehicle, clothing and books. In the event that Bourdain survived his daughter, the will also states that the inheritance would have gone to her nanny, Myra Quizon, CBS reported.

Bourdain was dating actor Asia Argento at the time of his death.

CNN has not yet announced any decisions about the future of "Parts Unknown".
