In court papers filed in Manhattan Surrogate’s Court and obtained by Page Sixand New York Daily News on Thursday, Bourdain was reportedly worth $1.21 million despite reports of a $16 million fortune.

According to the legal documents obtained by the outlets, Bourdain’s assets included $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.”

The will, which was written in 2016, reportedly states that the majority of Bourdain’s finances will be left to his only child, 11-year-old daughter Ariane.

Due to Ariane being a minor, the court will appoint a guardian to protect her interests in his estate. If Ariane had died before her father did, the will reportedly states that his finances would have gone to her nanny, Myra Quizon, Page Six reports.

Meanwhile, the executor of his estate will reportedly be her mother, Ottavia Busia, whom he married in 2007.

Although Bourdain and Busia separated in 2016, their divorce was not finalized before his death. Since their divorce was not finalized, Busia is still legally his next of kin. (Bourdain and girlfriend Asia Argento began dating after meeting during the filming of his CNN show Parts Unknown in 2016.)

Bourdain reportedly gave his “accumulated frequent flyer miles” to Busia, and asked her to “dispose of [them] in accordance with what [she] believes to have been my wishes,” according to the outlets. The same instructions were stated for his cars, furniture, books, clothing and household items.
