Paul Walker Left Everything to His Daughter . . . But He Wants His Mother to Have Custody of Her
PAUL WALKER left his entire $25 million estate to his 15-year-old daughter Meadow. But some of the other conditions of his will might cause problems among those he left behind.
Meadow lived with her mother, Rebecca Soteros, for the first 13 years of her life. She'd been living with Paul since 2011, but went back with Rebecca after Paul died.
But Paul's will states that he wants his own mother to be Meadow's guardian, and he wants his father to control the estate. It's not clear if Rebecca is cool with this.
Clay Aiken is Running for Congress...Seriously
Singer CLAY AIKEN will officially announce his campaign for Congress today. He will be challenging U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers.
In a video that will be posted online, Aiken portrays himself as someone who is not a politician. He emphasizes his personal story – growing up in a home torn apart by domestic violence – and says it inspired him to be a voice for the powerless.
“I saw this as the best place I could serve, because I think Washington, in general, is dysfunctional,” Aiken said. “I think it’s high time we put people in Congress who were not beholden to their party, and not beholden to anything but the people who they live around and grew up around, in my case.”
Aiken, 35, said jobs and the economy will be important campaign themes; specifically, emphasizing education as a way to get people back to work, including through adult job retraining programs.
