Anthony Bourdain leaves fortune to his daughter

Anthony Bourdain left a sizable estate behind and most of it is going straight to his 11-year-old daughter, Ariane. His assets include $425,000 in "cash and savings", $35,000 in a brokerage account, $250,000 in "personal property", and $500,000 in "intangible property including royalties and residuals", Page Six said.

Some outlets put the value of his estate at $1.2 million, but the filing also noted a $1 million mortgage on an unspecified property ― possibly a Manhattan condo that Bourdain bought in 2014, the New York Post reported.

Since Ariane is a minor, the will listed Ottavia Busia-Bourdain, his estranged wife as the trustee.

The will also seemed to reveal that Bourdain's estate at the time of his death was worth about $1.2 million, a modest figure that surprised many people given that Bourdain took his life at the pinnacle of his success.

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

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

Anthony's passing came as a huge shock to fans but Christian de Rocquigny de Fayel - the local prosecutor in charge of the investigation - recently confirmed that he didn't have any narcotics in his body at the time of his death.

He was dating Italian actress Asia Argento when he committed suicide in a hotel room in France amid.

A guardian for Ariane will be chosen by the court because she is underage.

In 2013, Peabody Award judges honoured Bourdain and "Parts Unknown" for "expanding our palates and horizons in equal measure".

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