Who Will Be the Guardian of Actor Paul Walker’s Daughter?

Where Meadow Rain Walker, the 15-year-old daughter of actor Paul Walker, will live has finally been decided.  Nearly six months after the Fast and Furious star died in a fiery car crash, the guardianship court case has been dismissed after Meadow’s court-appointed attorney told the judge overseeing the matter that Meadow has “a lot of layers of support.”

All of the court room drama began because in his Last Will and Testament, Paul Walker named his mother, Cheryl Walker, and not Meadow’s biological mother, Rebecca Soteros, as guardian for Meadow.  Shortly after the actor’s death, Cheryl Walker tried to fulfill her son’s final wishes by petitioning to be appointed as Meadow’s guardian.  The petition claimed that Rebecca Soteros has a drinking problem and is therefore not fit to take care of Meadow.  But apparently Ms. Soteros recently finished a stint in rehab and so in the end Cheryl Walker dismissed her guardianship petition which means that Meadow will live her mother and a nanny who has already been caring for the teenager for several years.
