Meadow Walker’s Net Worth
As of early 2020, Meadow Walker’s net worth is estimated to be over $25 million, mainly obtained from the estate her father left behind. Her father left her a hefty bill, a collection of luxury cars and expensive real estate. She also received a significant amount of money after settlements from the estate of Roger Rodas, the driver stated to be “guilty” for the crash that killed her father, and Porsche.
Meadow grew up in Hawaii with her mother. She was the daughter of Paul Walker from a relationship with Rebecca Soteros, although the two later split, leaving them to live separately. She spent the first 13 years of her life in Hawaii, but custody of her was later granted to Paul after her mother struggled with alcoholism. It also meant moving closer to her godfather, Vin Diesel, who had become a close friend of Walker’s after their collaboration on “Fast & Furious”.
She later converted to nondenominational Christian beliefs, like her father, and lived a luxurious life. Little did she know that it would be the last three years of her life with her father. Her father was known for working for various charities in his spare time, including Reach Out Worldwide to help care for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. After the event, he and his friend Rodas went for a ride to test drive a Porsche Carrera GT, which resulted in a crash, leading to the deaths of the two people.

The crash and the aftermath
Paul and Rodas’s car crashed into a lamppost and trees at a well-known race spot and a popular drift area, and the car caught fire. Rodas died immediately from the crash, while Paul died briefly from a combination of the crash and burns from the fire – when the bodies were found, they were no longer recognizable. After testing, no traces of drugs were found and there was nothing in the area that could have caused the accident. It was reported that the car’s speed and aging tires were the cause of the crash.
At the time, “Furious 7” was in production and it was discontinued indefinitely due to his death. Numerous tributes were made and the film was later released with the family’s permission with Walker’s missing parts done through CGI and his brother’s help. Later in the year, Meadow’s grandfather filed a case against Rodas’ estate, as both men owned a sizeable collection of luxury cars. He aimed for an equal share of the two estates, as the two rightly bought every car in the collection together. He had a collection of 30 cars, 21 of which were later sold at a car auction.
Last will and case with Porsche
At Walker’s shall, he named his entire estate to give to his father – Meadow’s grandfather – in the event of a sudden death, although he was kind enough to share most of it with his granddaughter. The will also states that custody of the child would be given to her grandmother, pointing to lingering tensions between Walker and mother. In response, her mother went to court and again tried to regain custody of the child, which she lost because she still had obvious alcohol problems. The timing was also questionable as she hadn’t made any attempt to get custody of the child, not until the death of his former partner, meaning there may have been an underlying motive, namely money.
Aside from the custody case, Meadow, along with the help of family members, filed a case against Porsche, citing the history of instability with his vehicles and apparent problems with the model his father was driving. Although Porsche had made efforts to nullify a similar cause, they eventually regularly out of court.
In recent years, Meadow has made a public name for herself, becoming known as the late actor’s daughter on Instagram† She aged well and showed many qualities that would qualify her as a model. She started modeling and has a few professional projects to her credit.
Her online profiles also show that she travels a lot and has visited Tokyo, the Philippines and African countries, among others.
With her wealth, she also continues her father’s work in philanthropy and helps create the Paul Walker Foundation that partners with other organizations in their efforts to help less fortunate communities. In recent years, the foundation has partnered with Pencils of Promise to establish schools in Ghana that she has visited a few times, with photos of her helping children on the Foundation’s website.
At the age of 21, she is still single and has not yet shown any intention of entering into a long-term relationship. She keeps information about any romances away from the public.
