Anthony Bourdain's 11-Year-Old Daughter Will Inherit Most Of His Estate

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.

This story originally appeared in The New York Post.

The filing notes that Bourdain had an outstanding $1 million mortgage.

Bourdain was able to parlay the success of his 2000 book Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly into the Food Network show, A Cook's Tour, which premiered two years later.

The star's estranged wife, Ottavia Busia-Bourdain, is executor of the estate. He left her all his "personal and household effects" to "to dispose of in accordance with what (she) believes to have been my wishes". Those items include the frequent flier miles he earned traveling around the world for his reality shows.

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

Last year's beaten finalist was well in control before rain halted proceedings on Wednesday evening. The response was emphatic though and Nadal broke back and then pounced again for a 5-4 lead.

Ariane, his only child, will inherit the remainder of his assets. Had his daughter died before he did the money would have gone to her nanny, Myra Quizon, the will says.

Bourdain and Ariane's mom, who married in 2007, revealed their amicable separation in September 2016.

Bourdain was dating actress and activist Asia Argento at the time of his death by suicide in June.

Last week, celebrity foodies toasted Bourdain on what would have been his 62nd birthday.

Bourdain told The New Yorker in 2017 that his idea for Parts Unknown, which was then in its 11th season, was travelling, eating and doing whatever he wanted.
