Anthony Bourdain left a sizable estate behind and most of it is going straight to his 11-year-old daughter, Ariane.
A copy of Bourdain's will was filed in a New York court Thursday and the celebrity chef/TV host left behind about $1.2 million in known assets at the time of his death. That includes $425k in cash, $250k in personal property, $35k in brokerage accounts, and about $500k in royalties and residuals ... according to the NY Daily News.
Bourdain's will also reportedly indicates an outstanding $1 million mortgage, but doesn't specify the location of that property.
Ariane gets the bulk of his assets, and his estranged wife, Ottavia Busia-Bourdain, is the executor of the will.
Here he is talking life and death... and an early addiction to heroin.
