Anthony Bourdain was thought to have been worth about $16 million at the time of his death by suicide, but new legal filings reveal the TV chef was actually worth just $1.21 million, Page Six reports. That amount includes $425,000 in cash and savings, $35,000 in a brokerage account, $250,000 in personal property, and $500,000 in "intangible property," which includes royalties and residuals. The New York condo Bourdain bought with his now-estranged wife Ottavia Busia-Bourdain in 2014 is not listed in the documents, but a $1 million mortgage liability is noted.
Per his will, written in 2016 shortly before he and Busia-Bourdain separated, the bulk of his money will go to the couple's 11-year-old daughter. He left his "accumulated frequent flier miles," as well as personal and household effects, to Busia-Bourdain "to dispose of in accordance with what (she) believes to have been my wishes," per the New York Daily News.
