Court papers filed by Chadwick Boseman's wife reveal the Black Panther star died without making a will, despite a four-year battle with colon cancer. 

Boseman and his longtime girlfriend, Taylor Simone Ledward, married just months before his death, according to his family. During their five-year relationship, the couple kept their life fairly private but were spotted together at many events.

Ledward, has filed a probate case in Los Angeles, asking a judge to name her the administrator of the estate with limited authority. She listed the estimated value of Boseman's estate at $938,500 (about €800,000).

Boseman, 43, died in August and is also survived by his parents, Leroy and Carolyn Boseman. No other family is listed.

His final film appearance will come in Netflix's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, which will also feature Oscar-winning actress Viola Davis.

The movie is scheduled for release on December 18.
